Hi Gals!

just running through quickly on a break from dull, old work. I'll get around to admiring your blogs and your EYELET work (he he he) soon. I can't wait to see what you've all made.

Waving - waving to all of you!

Oh, Maggie: my bad. I'm sorry that I didn't remember that you also live in TX. I swear my brains are leaking out of my ears & that's why my hair is grey.

Gracious, that DOES sound hot - Ugh.

Just checking in around here! Not much going on today..........still so hot but staring to cool down I guess. It's 6:00 p.m. and down to 100 degrees! Sure is hard to get outside and do much.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!

I’m Home Again!

There’s no time to catch up in the threads, so please let me know if I missed anything important!

I sure did miss all of you… but had a GREAT and SAFE 1,600-mile trip!

Good morning Stamp Addicts.

Welcome home Jeanette! I've missed your bright cheerfulness in the morning. Want to hear all about the trip.

I've got some house and grocery chores to do today and then going out for dinner with DD and her family and then off to see The Lion King on stage. This was my Christmas present from them. We're all excited to go see the show.

I have some news too! I signed up again last night to be an SU Demo!!!!!! I'm only doing it as a hobby for me, and not sure how long it will last, but looking forward to getting my new stuff. I don't plan to advertise, so it'll all work out with my other DT stuff.

Had a fabulous time last night with my family. I guess one of the best times we've had in a long time. Dinner was so awesome. We went to a steak place and I had a filet with crab sauce. It was so tender, it just about melted in your mouth. I had my DGD have a taste of it because she doesn't particularly like red meat - says its too chewy. I wanted her to see how a steak really should taste. She liked it.

The Lion King was just fabulous! They made all those animals seem almost real so you didn't realize there were people in those costumes. We all really enjoyed it so much.

It's afternoon now. How everyone is enjoying their Sunday and getting lots of rest.

I need to get started on my laundry and a few things around the house and then I'd like to get going on some cards. Oh, and I really need to do some blog hopping and leave some comments.

Good morning Stamp Addicts! I didn't get any stamping done yesterday as I had planned. After church I had so many things that I needed to do around the house like cleaning and laundry.

I did cook some dinner so I have lunches for the week and made some awesome Cherry Almond Brownies. First time I made these and they are so moist and yummy.

Got a blog post up and a couple cards uploaded to my gallery for a change.

Hope you all have a fabulous day!

I'd be happy too, only it's not my recipe. I used a box mix from Krusteaz. It is fat free brownie mix. The recipe was on the side of the box - 1 1/4 cups of cherry pie filling (I used the no sugar added kind) and 1 tsp of almond extract. Mix it all together and put in your 8 x 8 pan. Cook at 300 for 35 min. Great!

Now that sounds like my style of baking, Maggie - I describe it as throw and hope. Basically the recipes I use have the butter melted, the dry ingredients mixed in and and put into the oven!! I have even adapted recipes to use them in the microwave, and then the baking is down to about 6 minutes............ instant satisfaction, but not very often I must admit!!

Thanks on your brownie comments. I'll tell you - they are really delicious! One of my all time favorite candies are cherry cordials - chocolate covered cherries. This reminds me of them.

Nope, no word from Indah. Hope she's doing okay. Maybe she's on a summer vacation?

I have a couple people that I would love to meet - Marianne Walker - Copic's guru. Krista a/k/a Saturated Canary. I just think she is so cute and I love to read her blog. I could name a couple more too. I follow Bev Rochester's blog and love her work. It would be really cool to meet her too.

Good evening!!! Late check in

Paola, we will miss you! Check in when you can, m'dear!

Hey, is anyone else's SCS page different? Is there a different layout now? Just wondering if it just is different for me or it's been this way, lol!

For the Question ........ my 'claim to fame' is meeting Donna Downey! I love her!! I actually always did from way back when and reading issues of Scrapbooks Etc (and other books!) I loved her style! She came to our LSS before it closed down and I took a fabric stamp/scrapbook class - FAB.U.LOUS!! Here is her, and my oldest daughter, and I This picture is from Feb 2010

Well, Marianne Walker is an artist. I'd talk to her about drawing and see if she could give me some tips on style, proportion and that always elusive shadows and shading.

Krista - Saturated Canary just sounds like a fun person from reading her blog. I'd just love to chat with her about life, her family, her hopes and dreams, and maybe if I were lucky, she's draw an image for me.

Bev Rochester is the most creative card artist that I've seen. She designs for Wild Orchid Crafts, and Lili of the Valley and other companies. I'd like to pick her brain about how she puts a card together and also to see her fabulous craft storage area. She said that they took their garage and converted it to her storage room. She's got all kinds of goodies in there to play with.

Yes Kelly, my page here on SCS does look different. Guess they made some upgrades or something. Looks nice!

Maggie, I'll have to check these blogs, etc......

I don't think I've EVER met anyone famous - other than James Arness (Gunsmoke)....now I know you youngsters out there do not know who I'm talking about, but trust me, he was a HUNK - back in his time! LOL!! I would have really liked to have met Steve McQueen......Yummy...........oh, and maybe Clint Eastwood (another oldie but goodie)........... Oh, and let's throw George Strait in there too.....another yummy......and to think he grew up in a little town about an hour from me! WHERE WAS I!!! Dang, I'm REALLY getting off the subject at hand aren't I!

I'd like to meet Shelly - SU guru and maybe Tim Holtz.......and how about Jennifer McGuire.....don't have any idea what I'd say to them though - probably be too dumbfounded to say much of anything! LOL

AND, you're ALL stamping guru's as far as I'm concerned - so guess I'd like to meet all of y'all in person too! Wouldn't we have FUN!

Lynn

Good morning Stamp Addicts!

Me too Lynn! I think it would be great to meet up with my online friends.

I'm out of the house a little early. Have to go to my Mammo appointment this morning. Such fun.

I would love to meet all of you for a stamping get together. It would be fun to do a shoebox swap where we all teach a card and share tips, tricks, and techniques that you are all so good at.

For "well-known" people, I'd like to meet Julie Ebersole, queen of CAS, and full of fun. I'd love to meet Gina K. in person, although I feel like I almost know her from her many videos. I'm sure there are others, but can't think of them now.

Default Hello

Good morning- dropping in to say a quick hello!

I just met Donna Downey too- what a great artist she is- wish I lived closer to N.C. I could take classes and 'Be Inspired' more! She died the tips of her hair blue (think turquoise) for CHA, so I have a picture of us with her like that.

I also love Debbie Olsen- and took Copic 2 with her- she has a great style and is a lovely lady.

I would love to meet hmmmmm I have a long list- Dina Kowel- great artist and missionary- beautiful lady : )

All of you- I love the idea of getting together someday- what a treat that would be- you are all my everyday inspiration after all!

Joanne Travis- Sleepy in Seattle, Julie Koerber, Gina K, Pat Huntoon from the Technique Junkies....

Have a great day
Shelly

Default merging digi's

I wanted to share a tutorial posted today at CDS for merging digi's:
Merging Digi's

It works for my PNG digi'd....I do not have the latest version of Word, so have to figure out how to make the JPG's into PNG's, but isn't this cool- and easy....?
Yippee!

Thanks for that link Shelly. I tried doing this the other day, but it wasn't this tutorial and I couldn't get the other one to work. I'll have to try this one and see if I can use it. I do have Word 2010, but all my files are not PNG's. Most are JPG's. I've bookmarked it so I can find it again.

I'll try it too Shelly. I've tried to do this before and just made a mess of things. Maybe this will explain things better.
I do know how to change from the JPG to the PNG - finally got that figured out not long ago using Paint.net.

Back to the Olympics now.............

Thanks for the link to the tutorial Shelly - I may try this later - I could follow what was being said, so there is hope yet

My Second Card using eyelets is here I think a lot of you have visited and commented thank you soooooo much.

I have been lurking here, but not commenting - I have been a bit overwhelmed at the moment as I have had another sinus infection and DH has also not been well...... the on going saga continues but I will survive.

Evening everyone..........is anyone besides me watching all these Olympics! I swear I can't get anything done around here.......no reading, house cleaning, errands, crafting, NOTHING!! I've just GOT to quit watching all this..........Geeze..............

I'm kinda hit and miss on my commenting, etc. right now. We got a new internet service provider today and he screwed everything up so bad. He hadn't been gone 5 minutes and I had to call him back out here as I had no connection all of a sudden. Now they're saying I need a new router! My computer seems to be pretty much ok, but the iPhone is a NO SHOW! So..........I asked him - ok - I get a new router and how do I go about reconnecting all this stuff to hook it up? This is where he starts talking in a foreign language (tech) and I'm sitting here smiling (mainly because he was a cutie) and saying yes, yes, Now I have no idea what the devil he was talking about..........So guess I'll just have to wait until one of kids or grands wonder through here and let them connect it all. I asked if he could come back and do all this once I got a new router - and he said sure.......but don't know exactly what we charge for that!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm just not a happy person right now. I really hate all this technical stuff! UGH!

Hope everyone is having a better evening than me! LOL

Good morning, Addicts!!

Maxine, what a beautiful card!! Everyone is doing great with our eyelet challenge. I made 4 cards for a mystery swap and used 2 eyelets per card. Mailed them off on Monday so as to not be late & of course, forgot to take pictures to post on my blog. Ugh. So typical of me. I hope that you and hubby feel better soon!

Well, tomorrow in the wee hours it's off to the airport for my trip to Dallas for the conference. Other than the heat, I'm really looking forward to it. Hoping to learn lots that we can apply when I get back to work.

Lynn, I feel just like you when they start the Geek Speak. My brain disconnects, my face smiles and my ears hear the words, but they mean nothing. Smoke & mirrors, that's what it is to me LOL

Well, I'm off & running, lots to do before getting on that plane tomorrow morning. I'll check in when I can. Hugs!

Good morning, all!

Lynn, sounds just like me, LOL! I'm sorry you are out of a provider - even for a little while. I'm lost in the techy dept!

CONGRATS ON YOUR WIN!!!! I just saw the IO blog that you won the man's card challenge - woohoo!!

I do know how to change from the JPG to the PNG - finally got that figured out not long ago using Paint.net.

Back to the Olympics now.............

Lynn
I need to know how to change a PNG to a JPG. Some PNG's have a background to them and are not transparent, so I can't use them. I had a big battle with a stamp store owner about this because I bought some of her digi images and then I could not get them to work without the background. I finally got her to refund me my $$ which wasn't very much since they were digi's, but I would never buy from her store again.

My Second Card using eyelets is here I think a lot of you have visited and commented thank you soooooo much.

I have been lurking here, but not commenting - I have been a bit overwhelmed at the moment as I have had another sinus infection and DH has also not been well...... the on going saga continues but I will survive.
Lovely card Maxine.

Sorry about the sinus infection. I know how that can be. I finally had sinus surgery a number of years ago and have been infection free since then.

Hope your DH is also doing better.

Actually, I have not been watching them all that much, just every now and again.

Ooops.. . . sorry about the computer. I would have them come back out and talk to the IP Provider and make sure they are NOT going to charge you for it. They should have dealt with all that when he was out there to begin with. I would NOT be happy with them at all.

What is the IO blog???????

I'm also a winner. I won a prize yesterday on The Outlawz. It's a Goodie Grab Bag from Gilli Stamps. I love her work and can't wait to see what's in the bag.
