Feet first or head first?

My husband, Josh, and I were debating whether or not I meant feet first or head first in my first blog post. I actually had that debate with myself as I was typing it and settled on feet.  I imagined myself getting into a pool--was I diving, jumping in or climbing down the ladder?  I decided I was jumping because I don't like getting water in my ears which ALWAYS happens when I dive, yet I wasn't being so cautious that I was slowly getting in the water.  I jumped in and got it all over with quickly without getting my head wet.  The hardest part of setting up my blog was getting the background photo the right size.  Well, there's a little insight to how this girl's brain works...

Here are my two latest cards:

This one was made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, American Crafts black glitter cardstock, and I created the sentiment in Adobe Photoshop using Calibri and Scriptina Pro ( Fonts

I made two cards like this and I added Inkssentials Glossy Accents on some of the dandelion dots--I don't really like it. I think I either have to do them all or none.

This card used pattern paper from DCWV Harvest Gathering Matstack, autumn stamp from Close To My Heart and EK Success leaf punch

These were so fun to create!  I am grateful for the privilege of making these for our troops.  I hope they will enjoy them!

Thanks for stopping by!  ~Hugs~ Brenda
