Happy New Year!!!

Well hello and Happy New Year's to ya! Wanted to share some of what I wrapped up the end of 2007 with....here is a SPECIAL Christmas card for my stampin' buddies....

Of course, I have only posted it NOW because I loaded Adobe Photoshop onto my computer so I could make and use the watermark you see.....I cannot tell you HOW MANY hours that took! And of course, I gave my Kodak digital camera to my daughter as I got a new one...never really thinking that I had to figure THAT out as well! I tell ya, this high tech stuff is going to kill me yet! But I am keeping up - slowly but surely! LOL Actually, I wanted the new camera so I could SEE the bigger display screen on the back of the camera! Shhh! Don't tell! I love the thing, but loading the new software took some doing and I HATE having to read the manuals...(hmmm, maybe in a past life I was a man??!!??) Shouldn't all this high tech stuff be pretty simple? Oh I forgot - it is - to teenagers!! LOL I also got a Shuffle (baby) iPod - who knows when I'll figure that out! I also have a new printer/scanner awaiting me - but again...too many hours spent on the J-O-B!! Ah, well, when I win the lottery...

Ok - nuff bout high tech gadgets and the lack of time! Here is a project my buddies and I did during Christmas break....

Next - I had to make my friend Judy's birthday card, as her birthday is 12-31...so since two of my girlfriends used this pin wheel that I showed them, I wanted to do something a lil different....AND my other girlfriend whose daughter has a pre-Christmas birthday stressed to me that birthday and Christmas HAVE TO BE different...just like it is for all of us who do not have a birthday close to the holiday...so you can see from the attached picture that I used bright and springy colors for Jude...I am very pleased with how it came out...I hope the picture does the card justice....


So you can see how busy stamping I was? IT WAS GREAT!!! My therapy....although, it would probably be cheaper to see the famous Dr. Phil!!! tee heee.....but we don't ever mention that to the DH do we?!?!?! Speaking of DH (dear husband!), here are the very late thank you cards from his surprise party in November!! I guess the late cards are the guests surprise!! I should write "back at 'cha!" Ok - can you tell I am tired! Now I am getting punchy - and when I think I'm funny - I know its BAAADDDD!!! Sorry! LOL So - you think these are masculine enough??



Then lastly - the other special card I made for my secret sis - who is going to know who I am if she sees this!! I made it casing a project I made at a Demo class...I think I should have used white as the base rather than the Blue Bayou,and I should have used a red jewel brad in the star/snowflake accent....but I still like it....I will need to snap a pic of the project that was made by by my ....hmmmm....up-line-ish INKredible sister....Jackie M....If I weren't so tired I would be able to spell that last name, but I daresn't right now...


OK - off to bed with me! Hope you all have a great 2008! (OOOOHHH a poet and didn't know it!!!) I plan on one! Apply the Secret!!! Good health, good cheer, good friends, good vibes, good business, good good good everything to y'all!!!!!
