My First Post

How does one start off their very first post? Something clever? Something insightful? How about I just start off w/ a card instead, as I am feeling neither clever nor insightful. Besides its why you (meaning Nina) came to this blog anyway right?

So this card is from one of my favorite TCP sets (okay actually they're all my favorite sets), Arrgh! Piratey. And its based off of a Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge Sketch.
Did I mention I wasnt feeling very clever?
But I do love the way it turned out. I'm not sure if you can tell from the pix but the pirate's chest is blinged up. Because a girl's gotta love her pretty shiney stuff.

This card is done w/ TCP's You say its your birthday. Its ironic really b/c I loathe cake. Dont like it. At all.
But when its all pink, pretty and sparkly, what's not to love? (Just so long as I dont have to eats it...)

Anyways I think that's enough for today.
