Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

365 Cards Day 268

O.k....I'm FINALLY caught up with this week's challenges over at 365 Cards.  Whoo hoo!!!!

Here is the card for day 268.  The challenge was to use at least one stamp on your card...well, of course I went just a tee bit overboard...I used one of my favorite TH Stampers Anonymous stamps and stamped in Pumice Stone, Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass.

I thought the stamp AND the ink colors went really well with guessed it!  Another scrap from my stash:)

I added one of the TH coins AND a studio 490 stamp, some SEI ribbon from my stash and a few TH brads.  These are some of my favorite colors to work with so this was very relaxing to make:)

One other thing I REALLY have to tell you that I keep forgetting...first a question...Can you TELL that my FOTOS are much BETTER lately????  I know that's a LOADED question, no need to answer:)  I went to the Photo Expo in Del Mar a few weeks ago and bought my very first Christmas gift...FOR ME, lol...I bought a Tamaron lens that is AMAZING!  Wait til you see the close-up of one of the photos in this set of fotos.  I'll just say WOW!  It's a 60 mm lens 1:1 (like I really know what that means, lol)...but I'm learnin'!

O.k., now on to the fotos:

Hmmmmm....the direction of my dreams....well that would be to become a FAMOUS the altered art/mixed media, how KEWL would that be?

Now for the close-up...I was able to actually hold the card at arm's length with one hand and take this foto with the other hand.  Whoo hoo!!!!  The ONLY problem with this lens you might ask?????  It's sooooo sharp, I may not want to see fotos of myself with this about emphasis on my "wrinkles"...hee hee...yeah, I have 'em:)
