Did you ever spend most of one day trying to figure out how to do something on your blog? I remember my first Apple IIe, about 1982 or so. My husband wanted to incorporate a table and a graph into a presentation I was putting together for him. Copy machines were not too sophisticated then and I tried cut and paste the old way but it didn’t look professionally finished. I could do some basic programming but graphs were beyond me in programming. So..I used three different simple software programs to put together a presentation that worked. A whole day! But when I was finished I was so proud of myself. Well, today I discovered if WordPress is your host then you can’t have plugin’s. And I wanted a table. So, working, figuring, playing (and doing laundry and eating lunch) I figured it out. My dogs thought I had lost my mind as I shouted when I finally got it to work. Today I am adding a table to this blog for the first time. I am sure it will evolve over time. I first thought my day was wasted but, hey! I accomplished what I set out to do by hook or by crook.
**Mea Culpa…. I failed to give credit for the design of my last card. It was designed by Crafts by Happy Stamper (Elizabeth Jeanne Thatcher). In fact all the cards for the next few days came from her designs. She designed four cards using only one sheet of 6″ X 6″ DSP. Genius don’t you think? If you click above on the link it will take you to the cutting template. She gracious shared allowed it to be downloaded. Check it out
Here’s my card:
Using only two small pieces of card stock, the black and white is the reverse side of the dotted card stock. Layered with Basic Black with card that is Very Vanilla. Add a quick Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon Bow and you have a stunning card. The sentiment is from the Gift of Love Stamp Set. (Free with $150 purchase, its a Host set).
Inside is simple a well using Washi Tape from the Playful Palette Washi Designer Tape set.
Inside is Basic Black layered with Very Vanilla. Lots of room for writing a special Thank You
