The First Post

Hi everyone,

Here is my first ever blog. It seems that to be on some design teams or to enter challenges you have to have your own blog.  I must say, I am a better card maker (even though I say it myself) than a blog maker, so here goes.
My first card that I post has to be the one that I made for my son for his 20th birthday. I used the Seraphina and Friends CD Rom by Doolicraft. I've had the CD for a while but haven't used it although I had looked at the images. If I remember correctly, Hayley West demonstrated it on Create and Craft a couple of years ago.
Thomas likes to go fishing and used to go with my Dad until he passed away in April 2010. After a while of not going, he now occasionally goes with his Uncle Brian, who unfortunately doesn't live near enough for them to go more regularly.
To make the card, I also used an 8x8 white card blank, some mirri card and used my hot foil machine to do the sentiment. I was pretty pleased with the result and Thomas liked it too, so that was the main thing.
Thank you for dropping by.
Happy crafting!
