Finally.......A blog......and a challenge entry!!!

Finally I have a blog!!!!! After lots of delay, questions, procrastination and general "I don't know how to work it!!!" I am finally blogging on my very own blog. Woo Hoo!!!! Thanks to my very clever little brother it is finally looking how I want it to and I know how to work it - so am looking forward to lots of blogging now and showing off of all things stampy.

So where to start???? Do I go back to the very beginning of my Stampin Up stamping journey??? I think not. There are some cards in that collection that I don't mind but some which are definitely best left in the "Oh I was just starting out" file. So I thought I would start from my latest creations.

What better way to start than with my first ever challenge entry. A couple of very talented Aussie and New Zealand Stampin Up Demos have started up their own challenge site "Just-Add-Ink" and I thought it was a great opportunity to have a play.

Each week the girls will create a challenge for others to play along with. This week was a colour challenge. The colour combo was Taken with Teal, So Saffron, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Rose Red (which is by the way my very most favourite SU colour!!!).

I absolutely loved creating my card and also seeing everyone else's creations on the blog. Here it is, let me know what you think:

Stamp Set/s: For Everything; Something Sweet; Hello Again
Card: Chocolate Chip; So Saffron; Whisper White.
Ink: Taken With Teal; So Saffron; Rose Red; Chocolate Chip
Other: Rose Red 1" Double-Stitched Grosgrain; Chit Chat Rub Ons

Thank you for popping by and having a look,

Hi Louise! Congratulations on starting your blog - it's looking good already! I'm flattered you've chosen to start off with your entry for our challenge. :-) It's a very cute card - I really like how you've combined those two sets. And I love that ribbon feature! I might just case that one. Thanks for playing!
