Don't pass out - it's a card!

I finally got my new camera!! Granted, this was the 2nd one I got since the first was defective (it wouldn't even turn on when I opened the box). I'm very happy with my purchase though & hopefully this will get me back into blogging.

A friend of mine requested a card with a "beach or tropical theme" & wouldn't you know it? I had no beach or tropical stamps. So.....I really did *have* to buy this set from Papertrey Ink, right? It's not like I had a choice or anything. That's my story & I'm sticking to it.

I lucked out & found some "sand" paper in my stash so I ripped it kind of unevenly hoping that the white remnant would look like the foam waves make when they come up on the beach. Mission accomplished? It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it.

Thanks for checking in!

Papercraft Star Giveaway & Camera Issues...

Papercraft Star is having a giveaway to celebrate reaching 1000 followers - they're not quite there, but they're awfully close! Winner gets a $25 gift certificate to Papertrey Ink or My Favorite Things....oh I hope they pick me!!

I have a card made & ready to post, but....I'm waiting for my new digital camera to arrive. It actually came yesterday, however it was a dud. *sigh* So disappointing. Darn thing wouldn't even turn on. Thankfully, the lovely folks at Dell are sending me a replacement camera and I can't wait!! Keep an eye out for that card soon.......

Over a year?! That's awful!

I just happened to pull up my blog today to tell you about an awesome new blog I found. And I see that it's been over a year since I posted here. Awful! Not that I've ever been a good blogger, but it's pretty bad that I posted on here to let you know that I'm still breathing & then backed it up with....well....nothing. My plan really is to do lots better - doing challenges helps me with inspiration & then gives me something to post, so I'll have to get into some kind of routine. Then maybe I'll actually make some cards, rather than just thinking about it!

Anyway, I found Paulina's blog Pretty Pink Posh through the Papertrey Ink forum. She's giving away a $40 gift certificate & you can choose from a list of seven places to buy your goodies! Not only is this a completely awesome giveaway, but her blog is completely awesome as well -- her cards are so cute! Paulina's got a new follower as of today! So, I hope you'll take some time to click on the link below & check out her blog. Come back here soon too! I will have some cards to post soon! (As soon as I find the charger for my camera battery.......It's always something with me)
