Ok, click on the link to get hyped about the new hand held "Gypsy" coming September 24 at 12:01 a.m. EDT on HSN. This would be a great addition to my craft tools as we do travel quite a bit and taking the Design Studio plus Cricut plus cartridges would be too space consuming in an RV.

I found this wonderful blog called Scrapbook News and Review Magazine hosted by Anne House ( snrcarduniverse.ning.com ). She is hosting a Holiday Stamp Swap with a total of 55 participants which closed on September 11th. These are the stamped images I'm sending and I can't wait to see what I get in return!

These elements (paper/cardstock/embellishments, etc) have been sitting around my workroom for a couple years so it's time to use them up. I made several versions of all these examples to get enough cards to last through December so I can concentrate on my Christmas cards and our next trip scrapbook.
Also, I am trying out my new tabletop tripod for the camera hoping to get clearer pictures instead of the shaky ones in the past or having to scan them.

This card is made from a 3-D download I found at http:community.webshots.com/user/dOnpen designed by Penny Wessenauer (http://s27.photobucket.com/albums/c191/dOnpen/). These downloads are free and can be saved in your computer's photo program as a .jpg. For this particular card, there are two separate sheets to download; one for the front and one containing a variety of sentiments for the outside and inside of the card plus some trim pieces. This card was a total of six layers. I used the cushioning from a box of Whitman's Sampler for the large pieces as that mashes down when in an envelope. For the smaller pieces I used regular pop-dots. Anything going through the mail thicker than 1/4 inch requires extra postage.
Go take a look!
