ok - frustration is setting in.... I can't get my stinkin' email subscription to work! This post is just a test to see if my home email will get the new post.

More ATC's for the Central NY stamp day in October

I created this first ATC for a swap for the Central NY stamp day in October. The figure is from Lost Coast Designs and is a part of a set called 3 Flying Flower Girls. I cut out the figure, masked off the face and button, then sponged with Stampin' Up orange ink. I cut up an old (the price was 50 cents) murder mystery paperback...after reading it of course.... then used Timework masks from Tim Holtz and sponged with Stampin' Up Eggplant Envy ink. The flourish is Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps By Rhonna Farrer: Flourishes V.2 that I bought at A.C. Moore. I used a white gel pen to highlight. The work 'FLY' was stamped with a movable type stamp.

This next ATC was a group Make 'n Take. Boy, were they blessing me when they saw that they had to cut out the crows! The stamped image is also from Lost Coast Design, called a Murder of Crows. I thought this was very appropriate to do right before Halloween! I did the same masking technique as above and popped up the top crow with some 3d dots.

Email subscription service - finally!

I think I am higher than average when it comes to being computer savy but boy, did I have a long process trying to get an email subscription service for this blog! (and I still don't know if it is right!) I tried to use the basic one that Blogspot offers but it does not have an email option - doh! I ended up at FeedBurner and had to do a lot of clicking around that site to get activation and the html text...then back to Blogspot to edit my page. What a pain!

So do me a favor and subscribe just so I can justify the time spent on this!
