Ready, Set, Go!!

Alright, so here is my go at a blog! If anyone looks at this, well thank you! I really appreciate it! I am Kristen Dyer, and I currently live in North Carolina, though I just moved here a couple months ago from Maine where I lived my whole life. I started stamping a couple months ago and have fallen in love. I love being able to put my artistic side to use! I am a mother to a wonderful 3 year old daughter Raine. She is my world! I have an incredible family that I love with all my heart. I am a stay at home mom at the time being and I hope to go to be a medical assistant in the spring. I am starting this blog so that hopefully one day I will be an inspiration to someone like so many have been to me. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

For today I am posting a card that I made for a couple challenges from Splitcoaststampers and from Unity Stamps. The first challenge is the sketch challenge from last week ( sc194). The second challenge is the color challenge (cc185) to use a light blue, old olive, and very vanilla. I do not own Stampin Up paper, so I just use what I have that is close. The third challenge is from the Unity Forum on Splitcoaststampers and it was to do paper piecing! I think the one problem I will encounter with this blog is the fact that a lot of the stuff that I own was given to me by very generous women, so I therefore cannot tell you what products it is that I use on my blog. I will do the best that I can and give you as much information as possible! For example, on this card, all the designer paper is from My Minds Eye. The "Wish" sentiment comes from the Growing In Unity set by Unity Stamps. The flower and stem stamps are from Stampin Up!'s "Love without end" set. And that is about as much as I know unfortunately. So anyways, thanks for looking! I really appreciate it!!!!
