I'm usually willing to try different things but was a little apprehensive about the size of the trading cards listed on Michelle's blog but gave it a go anyway. Here is my take using my new Pun Fun set from SU. Each card measures 3.5x2.5 inches. I think the skunk is my least favorite of the three...the flowers may be a bit much. I think I'll go wild and upload them to my Splitcoast gallery--I haven't added anything in a long time.
This is the first digital page I have done in a long time—I’ve been stamping and doing traditional scrapping for years but find myself more and more drawn to the digital world. I bought a kit from http:/digital-scrap-spirit.com/shop/ after reading about it on Savitri’s blog. I used Photoshop Elements 4.0 on my new MAC and am very happy with the results. If I hear any complaints from my husband about his picture being posted I’ll know he checks my blog every once in awhile.
Not much more time for play today. Laundry to do as well as cleaning before heading to see a hockey game tonight with my son's Cub Scout group.
I ended up at work this morning for three hours with about 20 students working to improve testing skills then headed to my son’s school to see the second half of his basketball game. Poor little guy’s team is 0-6. I hope they win at least once before the season is over. Once home, I corralled the boy into my craft room and started working on the 20 Valentine’s Day cards he needs for Thursday. He scored the paper for all the cards, cut out all the dog/cat combinations on the Cricut and used the Sizzix Sidekick to cut out the robots and rockets. That left me to stamp the verse from Proverbs, add a little pen/ink work and assemble them all. We still have eight more cards to make but I’m not sure what the exact boy/girl count is so I’ll wait until Monday night to finish them up.
These are from SU's Very Punny set. I didn't get nearly as much done tonight as I had hoped but had fun with two boys (five and six) who wanted to play with me. My son and his friend crowded around my work table and used my Sidekick to cut shapes out to their little hearts' content.
I quietly reached 1000 hits over the weekend and according to the counter there have now been 1111 hits . I wanted to celebrate with some blog candy. Post a comment and I'll have my son pick a name out of the proverbial hat on Sunday.
I haven't been doing much crafting in the past few days because I have been busy getting my new computer up and running. For any Mac users out there you'll appreciate the power of my new Mac Pro.
The geek in me will point out:

I'll have some digital pages to post in the next few days...
