For You x 3 + 1

Hi everyone!  It is almost Friday and I am ready for the weekend.  Mr. Shac has been traveling a lot the last two months and this is a weekend that has nothing too big on our calendar.  The spring busy-ness of baseball starts soon, so I need to take advantage and maybe try to stamp some!  Yesterday was a snow day, although some people in these parts didn't get much snow at all.  We had measured four inches, but it was wet and slushy by the end of the day.

Anyhow, with the kids home, I snuck a few minutes and made a card during the day and a few more after they went to bed.


The first three actually have no stamping on them, unless you count digi-stamping.  I found this cute label on the Avery Elle blog last week.  It has a bit of a vintage vibe, so I downloaded it and printed it out in the original size, as well as slightly smaller and slightly larger.  I figured I'd mix patterns here; polka dots and gingham go nicely together!


Here is the smallest version of the digital stamp.  It has a very delicate look when sized down, don't you think?  I used similar colors for these two cards since I didn't feel like pulling out different Copic markers.



And, finally, with the larger version, I changed the color scheme, but went back to gingham.  I also used colored pencils to create a softer look to the flowers.  I'm no good at incorporating larger ribbon on cards, especially if I want a bow.  I'll need to work on that skill.



Did I say finally on that last card?  Well, I lied.  I actually have one more.  I've been thinking about my brother who has a BIG birthday (one month from yesterday) and wanted to make him a card that would express how he might feel turning 40.



My chevron stripe was not think enough to suit for a Charlie Brown shirt, so I doubled it up.  It could not have been a more simple card, really, and it gets the message across just about right, I think.  What do you think?

Here's hoping I get around to stamping this weekend.  I actually got some new Avery Elle stamps in the mail today using a gift certificate that I won during their March Blog Hop.  Fun!

Right now it looks like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems
of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

The Canon 5D Mark III is far better at high
ISO than the Nikon D4, period. The Olympus E-3 contains a two and a half inch LCD screen, which is just a little
bit smaller than its competitors, however, this
didn't bother me. The increased features of the camera in fact, justify the price hike.

For example, when user is writing a text to someone, but suddenly they decide that they wish to talk instead.

In addition, as i - Phone and i - Pad is fast occupying the new market around the planet
and Apple's affect will become a nice halo effect, Apple's system will be much more perfect than now.
Analysts also point out that, as Mac - Book Air's strong growth, in the next 12 months, its sales will reach over $7 billion, and sell 1. Compared to the Mac - Book Professional especially, it has the slow processor.

Polarising filters are a must-have accessory for any landscape photographer.

Red lights can be tricky but can be made to look good
if you're careful. Well Canon, hate to say it, but most amateurs don't like to haul around an external flash unit.
