Hi all!

Sorry about dropping off the planet for a bit. :) I’ve been wanting to spruce up the blog here for a while so all my free time went to that. But, I got it where I want it so it should be free sailing for a hopefully a long time. Anyone who has a blog knows exactly what I mean–you’re only content with how your blog looks for a short while and then BAM! You’ve got to change it up a bit.

During the revamp of the blog (which really didn’t change all that much), I added a couple new things. First, I think I eliminated a lot of the things that caused the pages to load slowly. I took out a lot of images and used text instead. Did you guys notice a difference in how fast the page loaded?

I also added numbers next to all the comments. That mostly for me. In the past when I drew random comment numbers for give aways, I had to print out all the comments, and then pencil in the numbers. Now, the numbers are already there! :) Plus, if you guys want to reference each other’s comments, just mention which number it was.

And, this last thing will take a while to get up and running completely, but I’m adding technique tags to all the entries that have cards or scrapbook pages in them. For instance, on this entry I tagged the term “faux stitching.” At the end of this entry, if you click on the faux stitching link, you’ll see a list of all the entries that have faux stitching in them. Pretty sweet, eh?

Like I sad, that one will take a while because I have to go through all 418 entries and manual type in all the tags. Just be patient. I’m working from the oldest entries and slowly making my way to current ones.

Anyway, this is the card I made for Color Inspiration Challenge #13. I actually had this all sketched out on Thursday night, made it Friday night, and am now just getting around to posting it. It’s been a crazy weekend! :)

So enjoy the card, and be sure to take a look through all picks this week. Every week it’s getting harder and harder to narrow the top ten down! You guys are truly amazing. :)
