My First Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog!  If you came from Barbara Brusca, you are in the right place!  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

I'm excited to be in my first blog hop!  Ok, I am a baby everything is a first.  It is amazing what a deadline does for me!  I have been a scrapbooker, but I have only made a few cards in my life...So this is all new to me!  I am hoping entering blogs and challenges forces me to create more, and finish the project I start, lol!  This month we are using the Clementine paper pack.  This is a cute paper pack with a new cardstock color I love~Cashmere.  I also used new stamps I absolutely LOVE, and tried out our new alcohol markers.  I sponged the bottom corner with Black and Slate ink after embossing, to give a smokey look. I made a pocket folder using my favorite Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I went french country, and this is what I came up with:

Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Clementine X7156B
Tulle Ribbon Z1798
Opaques Z1335
Sparkles Z1104
Stamp Sets:
Jardin Flair D1528
Baroque Borders (August Stamp of the Month)
Markers and inks:
Black Z2105
Slate Z2173
VersaMark Z891
Twilight marker set Z2400
Embossing powders: Black and Clear 

Thanks for joining me!
