First Swap

Hi everyone,  well these last few days have been a learning experience!!  I'm not unfamiliar with computers but there is certainly more for me to learn.  My friend and upline Tina Weller sent me an email showing me how to create and insert a watermark.  Well there are a few steps to being able to do this.  I've had to write each step down and follow it to a t.  (That's how I learn how to do things.)  For a while I didn't think I would ever get it but... I DID!!  Tonight in fact.  LOL.  I thought there is no way I'm not doing this.  A watermark added to your projects indicates that you have created the design and when you've spent time creating something that you didn't case it deserves to be acknowledged.  So here is a card front I created for my first ever swap with the Serene Stampers.  Hope it inspires you to create something. 

For this swap I used Pear Pizazz, Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used Natures Walk stamp set with Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, and Daffodil Delight ink.  The ribbon is the seam binding ribbon in Baja Breeze from the new Occassions mini.  LOVE IT!!!
