My very first post!

Welcome to my blog! My advice to you is "never say never!" This is the last thing I thought I'd be doing, but my mind has been changed, so here we go!

I'll start this blog by posting some of my favorite cards, usually created as a result of a challenge at the Hero Arts Blog each week. Who knows what it will evolve into over time?

Making cards gives me much joy and a creative outlet in my life. Here is a card I made recently, using a little set of Hero Arts SparkleClear stamps. It reflects the coming season, and uses a sentiment that I have adopted as a motto for my life, to find joy everyday. I hope you try to do the same.

Hi Lin! LOVE your SWEET BLOG! I can tell that YOU are going to have FUN with it............I am going to reap the benefits of following it, since I haven't had much time for Flickr these days. Your little card is ADORABLE! I just LOVE the "SWEETNESS" of it, Lin. WOW! Great design and your colors certainly all work so well together. I'm looking forward to hearing more about your life and love of paper crafting/quilting. CONGRATS on your SWEET BLOG. Love, Karen
