The great thing about stamping … is there is always something new to try. A new technique … a new way to add a ribbon … a new colour combo … etc etc. I sat down to create a birthday card for a 13 year old boy on Saturday … and came up with a couple of neat ideas! (I am sure it has been done before by some clever person … but they were new & original ideas for me!)
Luke is Sandy’s best friend … and the two of them are soccer MAD! So … I went online to find a background picture (free wallpaper) to print out. I resized it in Publisher … and printed in black/white deliberately … because Luke’s (& Sandy’s) favourite team is Real Madrid … and apparently black/white/gold are their”kit” colours! I also designed the letters for the flags in Publisher … added a star frame around each and punched them out with a circle punch. (When punching copy paper … make sure you fold the paper so you have two layers to punch through. The helps to create a smooth cut.)
“Boring Alert!” Feel free to skip the rest of the post! Well … as you can see … my time is a little full at the moment. This new programme is looking good … but it is creating more work for me … and less for Gav … in a sense. This is the result we wanted, though … to enable Gav to do a few more reviews each week. So … I am going to need more hours for work tasks … which will mean less time for stamping and blogging! While I am learning … the data entry is a little slow … but I am sure that with time I will get quicker at my tasks. So … with this busy time of the year approaching … I am a little nervous about how I am going to manage all I have to do. (I still haven’t finished my Christmas Cards … and need to post them out!)
I guess that it is “that time of the year” for everyone! I popped by this morning … and found 1 comment from my faithful bloggie, Lynda! I can’t complain … because I have been a little busy … and haven’t done a huge amount of blog hopping, either. So … I do understand that it is rather difficult … at the moment … but that 1 little comment did look rather sad and lonely!
Oooh … just had to share this pic … that I found in my search for the pics that I added above! Isn’t this a fab idea??? I will be back as often as I can. I am sooo addicted to my blog friends! 😀 😉 I miss you when I am not here! 😀
