My First Post!

Oh the pressure - my first post!  I have been thrown in the deep end here.  My friends have been encouraging me to start a blog and I resisted for ages and then all of a sudden, before I knew what happened -  I had a blog! Thanks Karen and Dana I think :) 

So be gentle - it's my first blog post, my first blog card, my first proper copic lesson and my first attempt at sewing.  Nothing like going for it :)

This is my card for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #7 (MFTWSC7).  I must start by saying I flipped this sketch.  I used the MFT Ladybug, the patterned paper is October Afternoon Fly a Kite (I think), some chocolate chip ribbon, chocolate candy dots and a touch of glitter on her wings. Don't you just love the paper pieced polka dotted polka dots?!?

Well that's it for my first post and yes, I do realize that two of my copics are upside down :)

Cheerio.....Leslie
