Ok, I finally took the leap!

I got a new computer...finally. Mine was only running as slow as dial-up, even though it had a high speed internet connection. The poor thing served me well but was about to keel over, so I finally went to Dell's site and forked over some dough. Thanks to Shane for helping me choose this awesome new machine that sort of scares me with all of its bells and whistles. Now I can visit other blogs without getting kicked out (I hope, and provided that I maintain good behavior!).

Please have patience with me as I figure out how this whole blog thing works. I know there's a few gadgets I need to add...I just have to figure out how. I doubt I'll ever have one of those high tech, pretty blogs, but I can live with that. If I can't embellish my blog, I'll just have to embellish a card or two or three...

Before I forget (I do have some serious swiss cheese brain lately), here's a card that I finished recently. I'm loving Magnolia stamps. It's my friend Brenda's fault since she made such adorable cards with them. I think she has the whole scrappin' derelicts group addicted now. Then I found the Magnolia-licious yahoo group and I was done for. I have since acquired quite a few. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a shopaholic and when I decide I like something, well, one just isn't enough!




And here's a card made for Guylou's DT. She has some adorable digi images on her blog. I'm going to try to get the DT graphic set up on the side, as well as adding the link to her blog, but I might need some help!


Alright, I'll shut up now. That's impressive, because I run my mouth a lot. Goodnight!

Hi Gina!
Your blog is great and I am thinking you must have had most of your questions answered as I see the Magnolia sites at the side as well as other informtaion. I am sorry I am not home or would have helped you earlier.
Just finding some time while I am baby-sitting my grandchildren finally today to check out some work.
Tilda is lovely and I love that paper you have with the umbrella's on it!!! Great work.
Enjoy your blogging and card making and I wish you a late welcome.
Hugs, Candy
