Thankful for Blogging Friends

Thanks for everyone who responded with advice! I finally got into my Picasa Album and was able to delete lots of duplicates that were in there, waited a day or two and I can post :).

This is a card I made for a card exchange. I used my silhouette and a Spellbinders die. Then just a touch of Glossy Accents on the berries. I cut the Spellbinders die cut out of heavy card stock and it was a bit of a challenge. I had to run it through the Big Shot 4 times and that was using one of the metal shims.

So because life isn't crazy enough I am currently enrolled in an online photography class. There is tons of information and some days I think my head just might explode. Also headed to NYC next week with a good friend and her daughter. Wanted to see the city all decorated for Christmas and see my granddaughter and the show she is in on Broadway. Our Christmas tree is up with only lights, no decorations and I ask Larry if he would mind if that was the extent of our decorating this year, LOL!!

Thanks again for your helpful advice and for visiting!

Frustrated and need help

Finally got back in my craft room and made some cards. So tonight when I am trying to post the photo it says I have reached my storage limit. Have any of you had this issue? Do you have to purchase storage space or did you go back and delete posts or photos. Thanks for any help.
Hopefully will get this figured out soon. Meanwhile hope you are all doing well!

I'm back! We've been on vacation in the mountains of North Carolina and this was our home away from home. We had a few visitors each day, first we had deer

and then two days later we had wild turkeys in the yard.

On our drive up about 40 miles from where we were staying it started snowing! That's always exciting to me, we live near the coast so we don't get very much snow. It didn't stick on the grounds or the road but it was still fun to see.
Larry drove the whole time so that I was free to take pictures...thank goodness for digital because I took almost 700 photos. We found a beautiful spot on the Blue Ridge Parkway to take pictures of the sunset. And we sat for almost 2 hours watching the sky as the sun went behind the mountain.

It was good to get away and good to get back home. Hopefully I will have some crafting time soon and a chance to visit some blogs :)

Thanks for stopping by!
