How the heck are ya??? Sorry I was missing in action last week. . .Actually no excuses this time. Simply had a week where I let myself be lazy. I do have a couple of ANNOUNCEMENTS at the end of the post, so be sure you check them out!
Lots to post this time so here we go:
I had to stamp this #&!@# image 9 TIMES! OMG! You name it, it happened to this image. . .thumb print, smeared ink, incomplete stamped image, etc. . . But I persevered and won! Take that you stupid birds!!! Bwwwahhhhhhh! I actually built this card around the sentiment which is from the ever so talented Mark over at Deadbeat Designs. The image is by Inkadinkado. I stamped the background paper, cut it into strips, and created the panels. I also made the little bird hats out of glitter paper.
This is a new home card I created for a friend which is way over due. . .The house and trees are from PTI. I drew in the curtains and colored with pencils. The fence is an MS punch. The fun part about this card is that the "floral trim" is done with the Spring mix of FlowerSoft. Here's a close up:
I saved the best for last (at least in my opinion). Take a look:
Now on to some exciting news. . .I finally got my BLOGGIE!!!! Here is a picture of it:
Small isn't it? I put the quarter next to it to give you a reference point. It is about the size of a small phone. It takes still pics (12mp) and records up to 2 hours in HD video. The little silver thingy on the bottom is a USB port which pops out to plug right into the computer to transfer pics and vids. I got a great deal on it (was $179 at places on the Net, on sale at Costco for $149 PLUS a $50 instant manufacturer's rebate. . .so $99! I'm impressed with it so far, but still reading up on uploading videos and looking at free video editing software to edit the videos. So, hopefully, the next blog post will be an HD video staring yours truly!
My wonderful blogging buddy Karen and her husband are the proud new owners of HIGH HOPES STAMPS!!! Congrats Karen!!! I've always loved their images, and Karen is even doing some of her own artwork! I've added their logo over on my sidebar so go click on it and take a look. I wish her and her husband all the best with this new endeavor!
I also have a new blog to tell you about. My new blogging friend Jean has joined us with her first ever blog at my prodding! It's called "My Raspberry Room" and she does beautiful work! Will you please stop over and give her a friendly welcome to this blogging world of ours? I'd appreciate it and I know she will too. I'm so proud of her that she took the big plunge! You did a great job kiddo!
