Another First

I am so excited because I keep delighting myself by trying new things. Not just in crafting but in life in general. I hit a milestone birthday (I think it's a milestone) and I decided to stop holding myself back from at least trying things out. So that has been my mission in 2010 to try new things. I may not do everything well or even like what I do, but I want to try everything. So this is my first tent topper card. Yay me! It was super easy (just like the easel card), next I am going to try a true tent card. Found a tutorial on splitcoast stamper that I am going to try.

Supplies: Cardstock - The Paper Company; PP - Making Memories; Punch - EK Success; Ribbon - JoAnn's; Rhinestones - Darice; Nestabilities die cut; Image - Designed 2 Delight

This is the digi from Designed to Delight. It's a month progressive challenge. I am enjoying these progressive challenges. You never know what you are going to get so you have to be prepared for anything and it might even make you try something new. LOL!

Double Delight - Pitch a tent
Meljen's Designs - Circles Galore
