Better late than never...


I have been so busy thinking of my word for the year Ali Edwards' style and organizing my studio space that I have not posted at all in 2010. It is a shame, I know. Right now, I am working on a new blog banner and some other upgrades. When I organized my studio space, I found so much stuff for blog candy. I am working on getting that organized and documented for up coming posts. The sad part is I have BOXES and BOXES of stuff in storage at my parent's house and maybe some at their mountain house. No, I am not a hoarder. If you keep repeating it, you actually start to believe it.

Today, I do have a card to post. The first card of 2010! I am trying to be more involved with one or two of the challenges floating around out there in blog world so I decided to kill two birds with one stone, so to say. As I type this I realize I made a card with a bird theme and no birds. I promise no birds were harmed in the making of this card. I used Laura's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You and Dawn's color combo from Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. I thought is might also count for the Hero Arts them of the month, Friendship and Valentine's , but I think you have to use a Hero Arts stamp in the submission. Oh well. What do you think? I hope to be back soon with candy and pics of my newly organized studio space.

By the way, I got a new camera for Christmas. Not the one I wanted, but better than what I had. In this day and age, I am not complaining. So, hope the picture is better for your viewing pleasure!
