Todays card

This is a card i did this afternoon I am supposed to teach a Valentines card class in January at the store. {but the store still does not have the papers she ordered in November yet } so, i have started playing with hearts and love stamps i have just to get into the idea of making valentines because once she gets the paper (if it happens) its going to be a hurry hurry thing. did a 12 tags of Christmas class in December and it was Long but, fun. this card has printed paper from fancy pants, colorbox red lipstick chalk ink, versafine vintage sepia ink and distress vintage photo inks. the stamps are from Stampington & Co., Hero Arts, Stampin Up and Inkadinkado. That heart is felt and from a pack at Joanns that has quite a few of them in it for $1.00 ( i have a pack of smaller hearts and think it said there should be at least 30 of them in that pack ) so a good deal. The big brad is either MM or Joanns. ( not sure, i dumped them all into one glass bottle a while back figured i would remember haha )



I joined Ethel's card swap at 2 P's last week and surprised my self. I think i only joined it because she is the hostess & because i have never swapped there before... the background stamp on these cards was in my stocking and its from Inkadinkado. I was the host of the SU club i am in this month and so two days before Xmas we received the orders back and the ribbon stamp ( with all my heart ) is from that. the name of the set escapes me but, there are 3 other ribbon type label's with words in the set.

This is Tim and I yesterday afternoon, he gave me a cannon digital camera and it came with a photo printer too! Plus some odds and ends for it. Very cool. I totally love the instant gratification of seeing these photos. Didn't make it to the store to drop off the film i shot all weekend yet... but, i have printed one photo with the printer and i am impressed. There is a lot to learn on this camera. I have always shot an SLR so, all of the programmable things are like wow. I think what i may do is take one option at a time and shoot a couple of cards of photos with that and just see what it looks like. I need to go see about getting more photo paper and maybe some extra ink cartridges too... Fun stuff.

I have been taking cold meds for a few days now so, i haven't done much today despite having the day off. Just loaded some fonts into the computer { it is pretty naked still } since we got it back with the new hard drive in it. we had it completely wiped and just the XP and a few other programs re-installed. oooh and now we are on broadband. totally cool how much faster this is then dial-up. If your on my emailing you photos list and you are on dial-up still probably it would be a good idea to remind me of that because i am shooting these photos at the highest setting and a few of yours email servers rejected them yesterday...

J made out like a bandit too and is totally immersed in the whole Capt. Jack Sparrow thing at the moment. watching the movie and playing at being Jack. he even staggers around like he's drunk on rum haha.

so, next up for the store class will be a Valentines card class sometime in the end of January but, the last time I had checked in before Christmas she had not received her new papers yet. Not sure yet what i will do, but maybe something with brass stencils and paste. alot of the gals that come in really don't know what they are or what they can do with the stencils ( besides dry emboss with them ) the only hard part will be the drying time factor its just so cold here right now. been snowing all day, but it hasn't amounted to anything yet, the wind is really bad too.
