My First Card Project

Hi all,

Gosh I don't know what to start with first...lol 

Okay, first things first.  I finally got the PSP tutorials started.  Most, unless requested will be basic stuff.  Just check out the sidebar...now on to my card.

Those of you that know me, know that a while back I attempted to color some stamps.  That's what got me to making this personal blog in the first place.  It was only a few times of trying, that I gained a whole new respect for all card designers, and worked even harder to make stamps more "user friendly", and leaving the stamp coloring and card designing to the pros. 

Since then, Mom and I decided to close up shop for her health reasons and (at the time) my lack of time to draw, because of a p/t job which (btw) has now come to an end.....thank goodness I might add.  

So now, while I am in the process of learning and pursuing a new career as a dog groomer (which I'm totally exstatic about), with no shop to run and to much time on my hands, I decided to give the card making another go.  Might as well put those markers to use right?...right.

At any rate, I got busy watching tutorials on youtube, and reading other helpfuls everywhere and anywhere I could find.  I've gone through a lot of paper, but I can now see why so many of you do this...what fun!!  As a matter of fact, I think I might have went a little crazy, as I colored six stamps in a week.  Once I got done with them, I had to figure out what kind of card to make with them.

As it turns out, one of my best friend's granddaugher has been having a couple of not so good days at her day care.  So, I took the stamps and made a little incentive project for her.  I have no idea what to call it, but she loves to put things on the frig.  As you'll see, I made a double pocket (I think that's what's called).  I then cut the images out, put a backing on them, then a magnet with a positive saying on the back of each, and then laminated them...she is four...lol.  When she does something good at school, she gets to put one of these images on her frig.

Now, I have to add, that card making is not the only thing new to me.  I'm not to great at taking pictures.  Plus the camera is new (to me), but I did the best I could at this point.  Reading tutorials on this as well.

I do apologize for the long post, but I had a lot to tell.  Thanks so much for taking the time to have a looksie.  If any of you know of some favorite tutorials on taking pictures and card coloring/designing, by all means let me know.

With ALL that said, here are the images of my first posted card project.

The paper and ribbons are from gifts, so I have no idea where they came from.  The images were colored with ProMarkers, but with too many colors to mention. 









I have entered this project in the following challenges:

I found it! :) heehee.

Super cute images and what a perfect pouch to hold them! So you're training to be a dog groomer huh? I'd sure come to ya if I lived here. We just adopted the SWEETEST li'l pomeranian/chihuahua, 4 yrs. old from the Oregon Humane Society and just love her so much! But she did need a good dog groomer as she had some mats etc. She's a beautiful red color. Well best wishes for your new career path!! :)
