Gettin' to it Thursday (Winner Picked)

I got a box of new stamps last week and forgot about them. So this week, when I had a few minutes, I would mount them. Now that they are all mounted I finally got around to playing a bit with them and some new papers. Check the fancy depth of field tricks, learned from photography class. That bird is from the level 2 hostess set Wings of Friendship. I like him because he's chubby and has a short beak, not a long one to peck out eyes.
I tried taking this one from different angles so that you could see the shimmer. I used iridescent ice embossing powder over the whole front of the card. This is one of the new In Colours, Soft Suede. Love the new polka dot ribbon. The stamp set is also a new one, Season's Greetings.

This is another new In Colour, Melon Mambo. The background stamp is Medallion, it's so versatile.
I've cleaned off the computer desk, the usable space was shrinking to just about 6 inches square. Now it's about 8 inches. Why do we keep all that paper?
And I totally forgot that I was going to do something special for hitting 20,000 hits. So till Sunday midnight, leave a comment telling me what your favourite summer past-time is, and you will be entered into a draw for some goodies.
I like bbq-ing, eating a bit later, and the fresh veggies summer brings.

I like that Soft Suede card... that set is on my list too. I am getting the medallion in this order so I can't wait to use it - I've seen so many great, simple but elegant cards with it!

My favourite summer pastimes include: boating, BBQing, swimming in the lake and riding my scooter and bike instead of driving.

First of all, I am so impressed by the new photos. I hope to take a class soon myself. Second, I love the new stamps! Lastly, my favorite summer pastime is swimming in the pool and having friends over to cook for and swim with! Thanks for sharing all of your talents!
