Doodle This Card

First of all I want to say how nervous I was to finally take that blog plunge. I have been reading and enjoying many other fantastic blogs over the past few months and decided I would like to give it a try too. Blog candy is so much fun and who can resist a game of blog tag *wink*!!

I want to thank you all for coming back to my blog and for the positive responses to my first blog entry ever. I especially want to thank Jami Sibley for teaching me this great card layout. I loved her square card and the three bows across the top that I saw last month in the Dirty Dozen Gallery over at Splitcoaststampers. I have been making the traditional 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards for all these years and it was definitely time for a change . . . so thank you Jami for helping me change my style. Jami is very talented and I am really excited to have been able to create a card based on one of her beautiful creations. You should really go check out Jami's blog . . . you will love it!!!

So here is my card using the Doodle This stamp set from Stampin Up! I used my watercolor crayons on the flower. The patterned paper is from one of those cute little 6 x 6 pads of Basic Grey paper that I purchased from Joy and Daisy at Eclectic Paperie. Eclectic Paperie is my new favorite place to shop besides my local Archivers store. I also used some of that "drool worthy" ribbon that I found at Michaels. Drool worthy is a Taylor VanBruggen term to describe something absolutely awesome . . . and Taylor's blog is absolutely awesome!!! Taylor is so talented and one of the sweetest people I know. She has been so good to me and Willow and Izzy . . . and we just love her!! I also used some brown SU ribbon, SU hodgepodge hardware and Prima flowers with little Swarovski crystals in the center. The leaves are made with my new Quickcutz Revolution machine and the Sentiment is from Fancy Flexible Phrases by Stampin Up!

Thanks for looking!
