Hey! How was your weekend? Mine was unremarkable. Did a little more Christmas shopping with some friends. Orla went to a birthday party. Cleaned my kitchen. Did laundry. blah...blah...blah...yawn.

The good news is that last week I took my camera to be fixed...and the guy "fixed" it in like 30 seconds. It wasn't the camera, it was the lens...it was jammed...he seemed a little baffled how that happened. I played dumb. But I am pretty sure that it happened when Maeve chucked it on the floor. ooops. At least he didn't charge me. :)
So I photographed this card...but I also figured out how to "fix" my shadowy pics. I was so excited about that! [I don't have photoshop...Maybe I will get it for myself for Christmas. ;)] Anyhow, that was the most exciting part of the weekend for me. Wow...how did my life get so boring?!
I have my 15 year high school reunion next weekend...do you think anyone will be wowed by "huge" photo editing discovery?! LOL! I better start thinking of better stuff to chat about. :)

This was a nice easy sketch from Mary Jo this week. I tend to like sketches that have one big main image spot. And I don't like arrows! (heehee) For awhile MJ was throwing a bunch of sketches with arrows at us. But several of us voiced our displeasure in arrows and she has been kind to us since. Of course, me writing this is just like begging MJ for an arrow sketch...so expect one next month. lol
Head over to her blog to see this weeks sketch, her fab-i-licous cards, and links to others who have used the sketch.

One thing I {heart} about Imaginisce paper is that it usually has glitter on one side. And I {heart} glitter! I took a close up pic (that you can click on to enlarge) to show the glitter on the DP and on Tilda's wings. I haven't quite figured out why some of the Tilda's and Edwin's have wings. Some do. Some don't. Don't tell anyone, but if I am cutting my Tilda out...I cut the wings off. GASP! I am sorry, but I just do.

Another thing I {heart} is my Copics. I have to admit that for as long as I resisted them...I am now LOVIN' them! When I go to someone else's blog that uses them I want to know what colors they used...Do you? Please respond to my poll question....the one up there in the top right corner. Boy, I wish I had an arrow to point that out to you. :)

Have a Harmonious Monday!

What did you hit a lottery and get a bunch of these stamps?? You seem to have tons all of a sudden, how can they work with arrows, maybe arrows pointing to where the wings are/or should be, or what else, lol! No more arrows, I get the message. Love this it is so fresh looking,the color are wonderful. I love the added flowers does so much for the image itself. I never think to use mine, they look too nice on the shelf.
