Happy Birthday, dear blog!

It's my blogoversary!

It's been a year since I got involved making cards for OWH and publishing them to my blog. It's nice to be able to look back and see how much better my cards are in general compared to when I started. Check out my first post here. It's been fun to make some blog friends and acquaintances over this year. Thanks for following, reading, and commenting on my blog. Here's to many more years of crafting!

Here's a picture of one of the first cards I made for OWH. This card was a single piece of cardstock folded in half (and not particularly thick, either), with a rectangle of designer cardstock glued on. I think the ink might have bled through to the back, too, but I didn't know the wonders of layering papers onto a new card base yet. I would never send this card now! I bet it ended up in triage. So glad to see how much I've learned. :)

Compare that with this card made recently:
Not really the same, is it? Even the photography's better thanks to what I learned from OWH about building a light box and using good lighting.

Cards shipped to OWH (as of 12/5/11): 1695

  1. Kathryn, Happy 1st Birthday. YAY for you. I truly enjoy looking at all of your cards and have for some time now. OWH is lucky to have you and your wonderful cards. This last card you've shown here is just beautiful. That little sentiment tag is very nice. I'm going to have to CASE this one. Enjoy your day.


Thank you for visiting my blog. I read and appreciate each and every comment.
