I've enjoyed the fun of getting back in the swing of card making after setting up my new computer. Check out these turtles. They are on their way to Monterey Bay, hoping to be included in the August 31st through September 2nd Discovery Channel three-night special called BIG BLUE LIVE...

C.A.S.E.

CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything...

I saw a card with this design somewhere on the internet.

This is my rendition...

The Designer Series Paper and Embossing Folder has retired from our current product line, but it's a card worth sharing...

LIGHTHOUSE...

When I was growing up, my dad had a commercial fishing boat. All us kids (there were eight of us) learned so much from him about the sea. He was an experienced vessel operator, and taught us many things about weather, tides, and navigation. We learned how to speak on the marine radio and more. As a result of my upbringing, I have always loved the water and especially lighthouses. The From Land to Sea Stamp Set was one of my first purchases when the new catalog was released in June.

Our dad also taught us even more important things...

THANKS VERY MUCH...

I sincerely appreciate your encouragement, suggestions, and support as I've been getting acclimated to my new Mac computer. Along with the computer, I purchased a new printer and camera. All three replaced old, tired equipment. I knew right away that I would love switching from a PC to a Mac, but using them all together, along with experimenting with new graphic programs slowed me down a little. Thanks for hanging in there. Thanks very, very, very much!

Thanks

In the meantime, I have a dozen or more cards, a cute card kit, and a 3-D set all lined up and ready to post. Enough of this long vacation!

Thanks2

Thanks again!

Very, Very, Very Much!

Thanks3
