Welcome Home!

Well folks, we are in our new home! Totally overwhelmed by the sheer volume of boxes and not being able to find anything! My daughter on the other hand has completely unpacked herself and filled her room to the brim. Impressive for a 6-1/2 year old! My son... well... he has his crib and some clothes. But he's perfectly happy playing in his sister's new room ;) In fairness, I was going to unpack some of his things last night. But at 3AM the night before I woke up with the starts of a kidney infection. I tried curing it naturally but by 6PM I knew I had to go to the hospital for antibiotics. It's one of the worst I've had and I'm exhausted... I'd spent the day cleaning the old house yesterday.  Never a dull moment. My lovely husband DID get our new tv up and running last night while I was at emerg. So the kids are happy ;)

On to today's project... I made this digi-card using last week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge to announce our move to friends/family. I come from Czech heritage so there's some Czech on my announcement and we also have French friends, hence the French. I downloaded MDS2 just before we moved and was excited to try it out! Let me just say, it is Fantastic! Being able to color stamps with a paint brush is priceless. And larger stamp images allowing us to size them the way we want them? Even more priceless. Of course there are 73 more new features to keep me busy! One step at a time though...


I've changed the address, the original announcement did have our new addy on it ;) I also added the Silver Brads on the left side that weren't part of the original sketch. Something was missing on my card and I had to do something about it! The thing I love most about digital card making is that I can try a bunch of different things and easily change them if I don't like the result!

I love the Seam Binding Ribbon in MDS. It looks soooo real! Have you been wanting to get MDS2? Consider Stampin' Up!'s fully customizable Starter Kit! It's $125, tax and shipping included. That's almost the same price as MDS2 with tax & shipping, but you can choose another $55 in products, you'd get the special Hallowe'en Painter's Tray project kit (worth $75) and all your business supplies (but there is no commitment to sell!). As a thank you from me, I'll even give you a Crazy 4 Christmas Class for FREE! Now that is a good way to get MDS2 ;) More info can be found HERE and HERE or by emailing me.

Well, that's it from me for today. Still lots of things to do! 'Til next time (whenever that is... lol!), keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
