Card Samples from Convention

I have put together a slideshow (finally figured out how to do it now in the "new and improved" Picasa), so here it is:


These were all cards on the display boards at the convention center in Salt Lake City last week.  I have some more photos of swaps that I took at our Front Range Stampers meeting last night and I will put those together to share soon.  If you want to save any of these photos, I think you just need to click on the picture and it should take you to that photo in my album on Picasa and you can right click and save it to your computer.  If that isn't how it works, I'll be back with better instructions. 

Thanks again to everyone that hung in with me while I worked through all my various and sundry issues.  First physical therapy session is Thursday and hopefully that will net great results.

Thanks for visiting!

I'm Back!

Well, I'm back from convention - exhausted but renewed!  Here's hoping that things will get back to normal now (as normal as they ever get in my life).  I have two more weeks in Colorado before I head to Massachusetts for three weeks to be on board Belmira with DH.  I have tons and tons of stuff to share with you - stamp camp cards (Christmas in July was a blast), downline meeting pictures and cards (thanks Ann and Pat for wonderful times sharing, eating, swapping and creating) and some pix of cards from convention too.  I did not swap, but I did get lots of pictures of projects and cards that I loved.


Here's a little sneak peek at some of the cards from convention:





My hand is better.  I've been out of the splint for two weeks and while I still don't have full range of motion or strength in it, it's much improved and physical therapy starts on Thursday.  I can at least type now!!!  Hopefully the spell checker will catch any goofs I make when my clumsy fingers hit the wrong keys.


FXW, DS and two of our grandchildren are aboard Belmira with grandpa so be sure to visit his blog in the next few days as he's promised to post some pictures of them all sailing and fishing and generally having some watery fun!


I have resigned from all my design team duties and am hopeful that it will allow me the time to get back on track with this blog.  I really want to learn to make videos that I can share with all of you as well as some pdf tutorials of some of the wonderful things I am learning to do.  Thanks so very much for hanging in there with me - only a few of you jumped ship when I was unable to post over these last few weeks.  You are all the BEST!!!!!


Thanks for visiting!
