My First Post!



First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I also want you to know that I cannot believe I have a blog! I only hope I'll find the time to actually post something here once in awhile! I'm still learning about all this tech stuff, and very nervous about all of it! I also think I may be using a bit too much pink!

I thought I would start out with a card I made a few days ago, using one of my favorite Hero Arts stamps...the Hydrangea. It is one of those classic stamps that is so fun to color. In the background, I've used the Hero Arts Friend Definition, embossed in white. Thank you for the visit, and I hope you enjoy your day!

Great first post! Nice blog colors. I like the flowers in the sky above your card with the hint the soft blue sky. The pinks and the sky make for a very welcoming atmosphere.

It'll be fun!

Congrats on the Blog, Great Job Barb, I give you credit, I have been putting off starting one, as I am not sure if I could or would keep one up, some times I don't even look at blogs for weeks, especially when busy, but I will try and keep up with yours as well. Good Luck, and also loved your card.!!I think your MoJo is back, or a good start on its way back.

You're a natural blogger, Barb. I have read all your posts, and came back here to comment on your first one. I have been blogging for a few months now, and love it. You will do well, as you have a positive, upbeat personality, and it comes through on your blog. I will be back often.
