My First Post!!! WOOHOO!!!

This is my first post on my new blog. I have to admit, I am so nervous. Crazy, right??? I don't like to admit it, but I am not as computer literate as I would like to be. I am afraid that I won't do something right, or say something stupid. My worst fear, is that I will be just as boring on here as I am in real life!!LOL

So, to anyone who might happen to read this, be patient with me, I'm new here!!!

I tried to decide how I would do this. I could go on for days and days about the creations I have made, but there is no point, so instead I will start with the latest of my creations. I am no artist, but I do love what I do, so I am going to share it!!!This is my card for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge over on SCS. It is hosted by Cindy Haffner, and if you're not playing, you should!!!
I used the set, It's a Jungle Out There, by My Favorite Things. I stamped the elephant from that onto my patterned paper by Die Cuts With a View. It is from their Glitter Stack which I bought on my last trip to Archivers. I then cut it out, mono'd it to my Whisper White CS and outlined and shadowed with Prismacolor Cool Grey 20% marker. I used my corner rounder to create the scalloped edge on the Ballet Blue and So Saffron cardstock. The triangle eyelets I used are retired from Stampin' Up!. I then used the large and small star punches from SU to punch out the stars and used pop dots to layer them. I took a Sakura Glitter pen and colored the solid large stars to make them sparkle. The sentiment is made from alphabet brads that I bought at Wal-Mart called Zoophabets. The panel they are on was punched out using the word window punch from SU also.

Well, that is all for my first post!! This is so fun!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!! I think I need to go to sleep now, although I don't know if I will be able to sleep, I am so excited!!!(Lame, I know!!)
