Look at these old beauties! My love of all things paper began with Stampin' Up! Here are some of my first purchases - buying the ink was not an option so purchasing the chalk allowed me to have all the colors to match the cardstock. I also really loved techniques when I first started stamping so Splitcoaststampers was THE place to go to learn - still is - what a wonderful resource! Remember Dazzling Diamond Dust? You know how coal miners can get black lung - frankly, I may have sparkle lung. The jar in the picture is the third one I've had - LOVE me some embossed bling.
Heartfelt Dazzling Diamonds that I uploaded to SCS in March of 2006! I've definitely come a long way since then!! ;-) What did you do when you first started stamping?
I am also linking this card to the Moxie Fab World Card Creations: Favorite OccasionsWeek - The Thank You Challenge - I dare you to say that 10 times fast! BTW - It is a great issue!!
