Happy Birthday to this blog

My first post went out from here 9 years ago!   Things have happened along the way job changes, house moves, family reunions.  In craft land styles have changed, we have all learnt new techniques, discovered new mediums, and all our styles have moved some more than others.

Looking back at some of those early posts I'm shocked at how bad my photography was.  In those early days I used either the scanner or a little digital point and shoot.   Over the last 9 years photo aps have developed so much so have the photo editing tools available to us.   I'd like to think the pictures I share with you now are far better than they used to be.

And the journey continues.   This little tent card was inspired by a new to me challenge.

The Library challenge, The premise of this challenge is a book title and cover prompt.   You than take inspiration from is either the cover, the title or if you know it the story it's self.   This fortnight the prompt is Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.   I loved this book and was delighted to have a reason to revisit my oriental stamps.

Another challenge that lent it's theme to this card, Penny Black and More this month their challenge is Black & White + one more.

OK Lewis on TV and Harley cat demanding attention.  Gotta go.
