Some Basic Information About My Site and My Files:

First a note about my files:

All my files are for personal use. I do not charge for any files I create. I share them here for others to use for personal use only. Please do not use them to submit for contests, etc. without getting my permission first. Please give credit where credit is due. I will try to do the same. This means I will try to identify where I got an item or a project if I didn't create it myself and there is an identifable source. Sometimes however I use basic clipart or coloring pages. You may however share these files with others for their personal use (you may not charge for them - you may pass them on for free) or you may point them here to my blog to get the files themselves. If a download file is available, it will appear at the bottom of the post and will be in a different color text.

PLEASE NOTE: I reside in the USA where we use the MM/DD/YYYY date format on computers (and in everything else we do!) If you are outside the USA where they use the DD/MM/YYYY date format on computers, you MAY experience an "Unhandled exception" error when you try to open one of my Cricut DS files. It is an error related to the date format. An easy fix is available at SusanBlueRobot's Blog. Susan has a simple HexEdit program and directions which will allow you to alter the date so you can use the files. Note: This is only an issue if the save date of the file is after the 12th of the month! It is also only an issue with DS files. I have never seen this issue with MTC or SCAL.

Copic Markers and House Mouse Stamps

Hello. Not sure anyone has missed me BUT I haven't forgotten about my blog. I have 1 1/2 weeks left of summer. My kids return to school on Aug. 17th. Then I will have more time to try and be creative. However, I have been amassing Copic Markers and House Mouse stamps over the past several months and playing with them when I get a chance. I have also gotten an airbrush system to use with the Copics. I have been doing lots of "reading" about all of this but not much doing yet. I hope to improve on that as well once the kids and I are back into the school routine. I did finally get a chance yesterday to play with some of my stamps and markers. Here are two cards that I made. I like the Copic Markers because I like being able to "blend" them quickly. Remember, I'm just beginning to figure this all out so be kind!! LOL
I will share more about the Copics and the Air Brush system once I get it all figured out.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! Hope to be back to Cricuiting with my Cricuts, cartridges, DS and SCAL soon! (P.S. my cervical issues are still doing better - yeah! Still minor "twinges" but nothing major right now! Thanks for asking!!)
