Another milestone for our family … with our 4th kid moving from their teens into their 20s. Isn’t it great that I still have 6 years before the next one does. Sandy keeps me feeling young! 😀 I think I am very clever … because all 5 birthdays (kid b’days) fall in the school holidays. (Occasionally … with Easter being at different times of the month … Sandy has had the odd b’day at school.) So it is nice to be able to enjoy their b’days without the hassle of school or uni. I guess … as they all move into full time employment … this will change … but with Sheree & Skye becoming teachers … they will still be able to enjoy their b’days at home!
Aren’t the colours pretty!? I had some fun using my Prismacolour Pencils again … and added a little sponging to all the DSP & white card. I think it makes the cut / punched images ‘POP’ a little more. I have also popped the framed image of Wryn & the sentiment image up on foam tape … to give a little depth to the card.
I just love these Tiddly Ink “Wryn” DIGI images and have purchased a few … but much to my dismay … Debbie has just done a gorgeous “Rapunzel” card using another sweet image from a different stamp site called “Make it Crafty”. I am so keen now to get my hands on some of their stamps! BAD BAD Debbie! 😀 🙄 This card did take a little time to make. I was determined to learn how to merge DIGI images and went straight to Debbie’s blog to find out how. Debbie has shared a FAB tutorial. Unfortunately, she has an older version of Paint … so I had to go surfing the web to find another tutorial. Not very successfully … I must admit … so A CHALLENGE FOR MY BLOGGIES … please find me a tutorial for merging DIGI images (stamp images) using Windows 2010 with PAINT. (2010)
Well … more ‘wedding shopping’ to do! It is absolutely amazing what you can find on the internet for a fraction of the cost at the shops! I would really like to support local retailers … BUT … some items are just too hard to resist! And … being in a regional town … rather than a big city … also means limited places to shop … and limited product range! I am amazed how much we have been able to do on line! Off to order my papers & cards for the invitations. We got a little distracted yesterday looking for shoes, bags & jewellery! And … our TV ‘blew up’ on Tuesday … and we just HAD TO HAVE A NEW ONE … for the State of Origin rugby league FINAL last night! Yayayayaya! Queensland won! Will be back again soon!
