Welcome!

April first seems like just the right date to start a blog! Why Paper and Ink? Most folks who know me know I love to use paper and ink to make greeting cards and other items. I fell in love with rubber stamping 4 years ago. It's the perfect medium for "artists" who can't draw, and that would definitely include me! All I need is ink and paper and stamps and all the other fun things that go along with turning a blank piece of paper into a card. Today I designed this Christmas card and really love the sparkle. It's hard to see in this picture, but the dots are covered with Stickles - a type of glitter glue. Don't you just love the snowman wishing on a star?

  1. Hi Joan... I love your card ~ I need to get some Stickles for myself. You know I have to drive a long country mile or interstate mile to get to somewhere that might sell it. Thank goodness for the internet. Thanks for sharing your artwork ~ toodles! Pam
