new stuff...

Howdy all...
I hope you had a FABULOUS weekend!!! Mine was busy, busy, BUSY!!! I won't bore you with all the crazy details, LOL! Luckily I took a personal day today to get caught up on all the stuff I have been putting off!

I ordered some new PTI stuff the other day, and was so excited to have it in my mailbox on Thursday~woot woot!!! Of course I had to try it out!!! I purchased a few of the new dies, and will have to go back and watch Nicole's tutorial on getting the paper out of them, because I used my (very sharp) paper snips and tried prying it out, and accidentally stabbed my thumb!!! It bled like crazy and is still sore~Don't you just hate those paper crafting accidents!!!

I had a great Mother's Day yesterday, and we also celebrated Josh's 21st birthday (pic's will be posted on my 365 blog soon), it was a good day of food, family and fun (and even a Costco run)!!

Mike got me a new light tent for Mother's Day (really I bought it and told him that is what he got me, LOL!), to take photos for my blog~I have been using my paperbox method for over 2 years and decided it was finally time to upgrade. It is a lot bigger than I had expected, so I am still experimenting with the lighting.

Here is the card I made using my new goods!!

Your card is gorgeous Gretchen, and I love the look of that new light box! Your photo looks much brighter. How many lights do you find works well with it?
Glad to see you got spoiled for Mothers Day. And I hope Josh had a wonderful 21st.

Wow! The new light box makes a huge difference! My paper one got tossed when we moved, and "Guy" will be getting me a new one some day as well! Pretty card, love new stuff! Have a great day off~~~~
