I've finally returned

Well, I think I'm back. I've been gone for a really long time, it seems. My camera broke and we just now got a new one. A really nice one too! I love it! It's a Canon Powershot SX130 and we got it on sale on Black Friday. I just couldn't go through all the holidays without a camera.

I made this card for my Dad for Christmas. That's what he asked for, he wanted me to make him a card. He told me he likes ravens, bells, the color blue and 18th century inspired themes. So this is what I came up with. I saw oodles of stamp sets I wanted to buy, mostly from Tim Holtz. My Dad would love his style!

Tell me what you think. This card is definitely different from my regular cards. I need your invaluable input, people!!

New Video!!

My new video is up on YouTube. I tried to upload it to Blogger but had trouble. I'll keep working on it. I had trouble with it on YouTube also so who knows...

Journal for Charity

I was asked to make up some items for a charity event that (I think) is later this month. This picture was taken with my camera phone so that's why it is not the greatest.
I'm also trying to upload a video to YouTube and have had a little trouble. Hopefully it will be up later this evening!

A bad photo of some HERO cards I made

I am so bummed I have been having camera trouble for about a month. Of course, this happens now! My baby girl just turned one year old and she just started toddling around without the help of furniture and I try to get pictures and wouldn't you know, my camera is busted?!$&!!

Oh well, I will put that on the "Much Needed" items list. I did take a picture of ten Hero cards I made (albeit a crappy photo) that I put together yesterday. I plan on writing a note inside and sending these cards in a shipment for OperationWriteHome. I'm also planning on hosting a very small card making get together at my home on Sun Sept 12th for some girl time and card making for our troops. I will probably make some card kits with a Halloween theme using my new Mini Monsters cart. I am seriously considering doing something on my blog that day as well since it is a birthday bash for OWH. Would anyone like to join me??

Gotta support our troops!!

Two Layouts

Here are a couple of layouts I've completed in the last few days. I am trying to take better photos of my layouts but this is it for now. I'm going to add my journaling in the next few days.

'Princess' Single Page LO for Momo's Tuesday Challenge

Here is a stunning and simple LO I made of my youngest daughter for Momo's Tuesday Challenge. I'm working on posting a video of this LO in the near future. I got the idea of this LO from Archivers last summer. I took a picture with my camera phone (bottom picture). What do you think?
