I'm so glad Tate is coming home! She'll probably be on antibiotics for a while, but God is so good!!! I'm still praying for a speedy recovery.

Lovely Driver, I photograph all my cards with the highest setting on my camera, but after I upload to my Pictures folder, I go to one of two sites online to shrink it.

Resize Images online

Web Resizer - Making Photos Faster - Optimize pictures for websites and email

I like the second site because I can crop my photos, especially those of square cards. When I have saved the shrunk or resized photo to my Pictures folder, that's the one I use to upload to SCS. It takes a couple of extra minutes, but I like to use the unshrunk photos on my blog.

Pat, I'm praying for you and your hands BIG TIME! God apparently wants you to back off, and it's good to hear you are listening!!!

I save it at 33% and (except for the SF challenge card on SCS today which was my fault) - it reduces the card so I can save it and upload it to SCS. So, if for some reason you don't get a workable solution, you might try that. It is only a 1 screen thing - it opens up - you pull in your picture, I set it at 33% and then type in my info as to how I want to store it. Then I pull up Paint.net (free too) and save it in that program. I had trouble in the beginning and someone (can't remember who - gave me this information) and I have been using it ever since. There is probably a much easier way - but it's the way I started because it wouldn't take my pictures - said they were "too big".

FYI

That's good news about Tater going home tomorrow. Will send a card to her.

Pat, so sorry you are having trouble with your hands and that you have to step down from ODBD - your cards are always so gorgeous!

Lesley, hope you get to see Steve and glad your DH is better.

Hugs all around.

K.
I downloaded it and when I tried to open it, it looked like Chinese writing.

OK, Lydia suggested it could be a browser problem. I used another browser and it uploaded just fine. Thanks for all your suggestions.

Shirt - I was going to tell you I set all my pics at 33% in PIXresizer and then onto Paint.net to add the watermark and save - but I just read that you got your problem worked out - woo hoo. Lydia has helped me several times too - she is a sweetie. I just mailed a card to Tater - hope she continues to improve.

Well, have to upload my card to There's Magic in the Air and then do some housework.

Hugs all around.

If you don't need to crop, just click "apply changes" and then "download this picture". If you crop, you just click "crop photo" and move the little rectangle whatever way you want. I just try to get the height and width the same if I'm cropping a square card photo. It's really easy.

The first photo is full size and I would not be able to upload it to the gallery. The second one is optimized and is way smaller, but you can't really tell the difference. The third photo is cropped after being optimized.

Praying for the F/U visit for Mark - bet he is getting itchy being in the house so much - how's the rehab going with his shoulder??

We have been missing you quite a bit, and have to catch up with other things too, ya know! I have been picking up one grandchild or another a lot more now that I am retired - taht and normal busy-ness stuff - good to see you here, SISSY - any word on how Steve is doing - still sending up the prayers for him to be touched!

LYMI- have a great day -

Hubby is taking his own self to PT today...it feels weird that I don't have to drive him.

Ladies,
I hope everyone is going to have a wonderful week-end. Tater - hope you're feeling better!! Lesley - glad to hear Mark is behind the wheel again. Will light up the candles for everyone this week-end at Mass. Here is my card for this week's challenge. I think this might be the first ever - one layer card. If I've made one prior - I sure don't remember doing it! P.S. The flowers are peach-colored - truly - not pink!

Whoot Whoot the Cards are World Champions!! Lesley about August whoda thunk it!? I tell you last night was the best ball game I have ever seen. You know the old saying, it ain't over till the fat lady sings. Well last night was a true testament to that. Ok enough baseball till next spring.

Tater I am so glad you are feeling better. Don't do too much. Keep your strength for important things...like making cards!

I didn't get a card made for the challenge and I am going to bow out this week ladies. My husband is home and we have some plans for the weekend. I missed him and glad he's home. I didn't make but one card all week long. I just haven't had any mojo.

CA hope your Mom is continuing to get better?

Kathy thanks for lighting all those candles for us. Keep it up!

Sue looking forward for the ODBD card for tomorrow. I need to check your gallery it's probably on there.

Brat I been missing you! I know you are busy with your children and life but know you're missed.

Pat it's Friday so you have a couple of days of rest from having to type. I think I'm having sympathy pains. My left hand has been hurting like the dickens for a few days. It'll be ok in a couple of days.

Shirt how are you feeling? How's Daisy doing? I had my dog Lizzie spayed a week ago today and had to keep her up until Wednesday. When I turned her lose she ran and ran. Shes 10 months old and still so full of energy. My dog that is inside is Sadie and she has gotten so fat. Kind of like her master. I think we are both going to go on a diet. I hate to diet. Its no fun and so darned hard.

I have to get 10 cards made by Tuesday for our SU meet. We send cards for the troops. Think I am going to make Valentine cards. They can all be alike which is a blessing!

Well everyone have a great weekend and I'm still praying for all the requests and if I forget God doesn't.

Yay for the Cardinals!!! World Champions!!! Bet you are happy, huh, Silly?? Once the Philllies were out of it, I think both Lesley and I were both rooting for the Cards to make it all the way!

Brat - saw a card in your gallery this week, so I know you are still kicking, hope we see you on the bus!!

Pat , rest up those widdle hands of yours this weekend - they should have a nice rest after this past week!! RELAX - you have to learn how to before you retire, or you ay end up like me, running all the time, retired or not - LOL!

CA, you have had a lot of your plate this week, Hope it is all calming down a bit, and your Mom is doing a little better, and Eddie is helping put.

I did not see anything about Tater, except that she was home - anyone know anything more? I am still praying that she is doing better than she was - day by day!!!

Shirt, how are the fur babies all doing? Daisy behaving ?? You must feel lost with no more Sat night races to go to - Tig probably misses it too - I know how he loved it!!

Kathy, seeing less of you these days - working more or just occupied with other things? Your cards that I have seen have been TOPS! This weekend, I am going to light a candle for YOU, for being so sweet!!

Silly, bet your glad DH is home, Enjoy the weekend together - the cards will always be here!!

Lesley, glad to give up your job as chaffeur?? Bet Mark is glad not to be stuck in the house or passenger seat!! Any more word on Steve and how he is feeling - keeping him in prayer to hear Jesus' voice in his heart!!

Chrissy Cakes, what happened to our UK sistah?? This has been a quiet week all the way around, but there is usually SOME one here each day - hop back aboard, we need to hear your news!!

OK< time for me to wind down for bed - Hugs all around - and have a great weekend!! LYMI!

OK, Drum roll! ---- for TSC1104

For the TSC1104, please make a boy related card (young or old) Some ideas I had were using toys, pets, sports, bikes, skateboards, dinosaurs, monsters, skiing, swimming, fishing - ANYTHING boy related that they like to play or do. That leaves you with PLENTY OF OPTIONS. You must also use at least 2 different PUNCHES in assembling your card!! OK, put on your thinking caps and GO!!!

Congratulations to those of you who were rooting for the Cards! Sorry, Tate, but your Rangers just got so close again!

My mom is better, but she still needs a little more assistance than she did before she went into the hospital. She's OK though.

I'm babysitting for Maddie four days a week now. It's a long story and not a good one, I'm afraid. My daughter also had her car taken away, so she has no transportation now. I have to go over to her house at 6:30 a.m. to take her to work and then bring Maddie here. At 5:30 p.m., I have to go pick her up from work. I bring her here so she will eat dinner. When we're all done with that, I take her and Maddie home. Either tonight or tomorrow, I have to take her to the store because she's running low on diapers and wipes among other things. When peek starts at Amazon, she will be working five days a week and longer hours which means I will have Maddie all the more. It's hard to get anything done with a 16 month old around all the time! I love her so much though.

I'm OK, just a bit stressed at times. I got through my stamp camp yesterday, but I have to get ready for club on Thursday night. Phew!

You're all in my prayers, especially Tate!! And Pat, too!!

Greenie, thanks for a great challenge for this week. I think I might have something for a boy card! I sure have plenty of punches!!!

Love you all! Cya!!

Hi all. I have been busy today. I like to wash all my windows before winter sets in so I have been working on that. Today I did the sliding doors in my dining room. It also has storm doors so its 4 doors. Plus clean all the wood work and the curtains. I have beautiful views and like to keep my windows spic and span. Then hubby and I did spent the rest of the day together. He does team sorting and this is the last one (where he goes all the time) for this year, tonight. He is going to that and I am bowing out. Its too cold to go be a spectator this time of year. At night anyway. I made chicken broth today also now I have to go put it in the frig to get rid of all the grease. Its a lot of work but it makes for great chicken and dumplings. So this has been my exciting day. Gonna go look in the gallery at all of the creations for yesterdays challenge.

Silly, sounds like your house is where I would like to be right about - hot chicken broth and all -
SISTAHS IT IS SNOWING ALL DAY HERE - we got about 3-5 inches and are expecting another 2-4 inches tonight!! its wa-aay too early for this much snow - the big, wet snowflakes that make for slushy, slippery roads!! I just got in from church, and I am staying PUT!! I know there is plenty I can do to keep busy - I think I must have about 5 projects that need to be worked on, not counting cards!!

Prayed you all up good tonight and hoping everyone has a good weekend !!

LYMI!!!! HUGSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

Oh my goodness! That's what I love about this bus! We all take good care of each other! I don't have a lot of choice right now. Alicia has no car, so I have to get her to and from work. She's tired enough after these ten hour days, but they will go to 11 or 12 hour days here pretty soon. Eddie has been helping a little with the babysitting so I can get some things done. He watched Maddie a lot yesterday during my stamp camp. I have to go get Alicia from work and I'm taking her to WalMart because I just used her last diaper! I need some things, too, along with Eddie's meds at the pharmacy. I love you all and I pray for all your needs, too!!!
