My first blog

Hello everyone! My name is Suzanne, and this is my first time in blogging. Let me start by telling a little bit about myself. I grew up in a small town of Powell, Wyo. Not too far from Yellowstone National Park. After graduating high school, I married my first husband and had 2 wonderful boys, Kyle and Nathan. We were married for about 7 years, but unfortunately had grown apart. A few yrs later, I met my soul mate. We moved from Powell 7 yrs ago to Colorado. We sure love it here.

My sister, who also lives in Colorado, is a scrapbooker. She had introduced me into scrapbooking and got me started. I was pretty slow at it for a while. then a friend of mine learned I was doing a little scrapping, and introduced me into stamping and cardmaking. I have been hooked since. I was surfing the web one day, and ran into the magnolia stamps, and was IN LOVE!! I couldn't get over how adorable they were. I just had to have some. So, I made my first purchase of the stamps. Once I received them, the first thing I did, was went down and started stamping and coloring, then before I new it, I made my first magnolia card.

I found a Magnolia stamp group on Facebook, and have been enjoying all the posts on there. That is where I learned of the Copic Markers. Ok, had to have some. So, I went out and bought some. I now have acquired quite a few in my collection. I'm still however trying to master the blending. Hopefully, one of these day's I will get it down :-)

So that pretty much it in a nutshell for now. Hope you guys enjoy!
