hello friend...

I have been busy trying to learn Photoshop CS3 (a friend of ours let me download it onto my computer, hooray!!!). I have to say the learning curve from Photoshop Elements 5 to CS3 is a little steep (for me anyway). None of the tools are in the same spot, the shortcuts are different, and me being a creature of habit (and 40 years old, lol!), it is taking a little getting used to. I am excited about the possibilities, because this version ROCKS!!! So please be patient with my edits...I will get it figured out!!!
I just had to get the new set Fresh Alphabet by Papertrey (I {heart} alphabet stamp sets...especially when they are acrylic~and I can see where I am stamping). This one is really nice!!! Simple and a nice size for cards...I see some personalized cards in the future. I also used my new Fresh Snow ink pad, which I really like too!!! This card took a while to finally come together, but after playing around with different layouts, I was finally happy with this one. I added a Stampin'Up Felt flower and Olive button (which matched the PTI Raspberry Fizz and Ripe Avocado nicely).
Thanks for visiting~Enjoy Today!
