A Fun Saturday

Yesterday was a fun day! A day filled with sharing artful musings, book discussions, computer information. It's always a joy when you find yourself with friends that you have so much in common with. My friend Linda at
is just such a friend. She helped me learn some new things about posting and jazzing up my blog, we shared card making tips and techniques, and we always find time to discuss our mutual love of reading. We're reading some biographies this year, and after my Mom reads a mystery it gets passed to me, then Linda, and finally Linda passes it on to Paperback Swap. This evening I plan to work on a couple of cards for 2 challenges I found Friday. My hope is to be able to post at least once a week on a regular basis and as it becomes part of my routine I might get to post more often

The Pink Elephant Challenge #11

I have chosen The Pink Elephant Challenge #11 a card for Mom, for my first attempt at entering a challenge. My computer skills are still a work in progress. My card buddy Cheryl challenged me to use this stamp. When I saw it this background paper I had said this was the stamp to go with it. Some copper embossing powder, some dew drops and metallic ribbon and I was pretty pleased with the result. To my surprise when I got my current issue of Card Maker magazine Tami Mayberry had used this stamp from Rubbernecker Stamp Co. also.

Begin Anew

As the title says--I'm going to try to begin anew with blogging. The holidays hit us with a bang this year. I had projects planned for gifts and I did accomplish those, but did not get pictures taken to post here. Then began the New Year with an unexpected family party which turned out fun in the end. My Mom has some health issues, but those seem to be smoothing out some, for 84 she's doing pretty good. In the midst of all these things I have been making a few cards and I do follow quite a few blogs. I think I'm ready to start playing along with some of the challenges I've been seeing. I've made a pretty neat Mother's Day card for my MNL and saw a challenge on The Pink Elephant blog that I'm going to attempt to link to. All this said----here goes!
