Well, this is my first blog and boy am I nervous!  Do I know what I am doing - heck no!

First of all I want to thank Suzie from Suzie's Card Den for helping me with my blog layout etc.  I am so technophobic and she said she would set everything up for me and Hey Presto - she did!!!  There are some really kind bloggers out there and Suzie is top of my list.  You should stop by her blog at  she is very talented.

I have been card making for around 14 years now.  I started out with one stamp and an ink pad stored in a biscuit tin.  I progressed to a carrier bag! and now have a craft room - full of everything crafty.  Ooh I also have between 4-5000 stamps and am still counting.  My crafting has been a total stress-buster as I had one of those jobs that made you want to tear your hair out!  I was able to come home and toddle off to Planet Susie where crafting is everything and all is lovely.

I will admit to being a tad obsessive about Spellbinders and dies in general, having around 250 sets of them.  Stamping is my first love, although I always use a die cut to stamp onto and to layer up.

As this is my first blog, I will keep it short - I do tend to waffle and go on a bit.  I will also attempt to add a piccy or two next time.

Thank you to anyone who may read my blog and who may leave a comment - please be kind - ooh I'm now laughing out loud!!!!!!!


  1. Well done Sue on your first post.
    You have how many stamps and dies (jaw droped to the ground).
    Come on now we want to see some of your creations.

  2. Welcome, welcome, welcome to the world of blogging. This is awesome and I so look forward to seeing this site progress and, therefore, get to know you even more.
    I wish you lots of fun but give you one tip that many long time bloggers gave me and I have learned just recently - don't let it run your life. Let your blog be another joy in your life and don't worry if you can't make a post now and again. I nearly gave it up recently as I started to worry about what everyone would think as I'd been away so long. Now that I have relaxed about it I actually can't wait to get back to it properly.
    Good luck my sweetie. Enjoy. Big hugs Linda xx
