I Love Google Reader

Oh......how I love Google Reader.....had never even heard of it before I began Shimelle's class ........and now can't imagine blogging without it!!!! Instead of wasting ages checking the many blogs I visit......only to find there's no new post......Google Reader shows all the blogs with new postings.......and once I've clicked onto the next one......deletes that posting........this is the type of technology I need and love!!!!
The weather is sooooo foul here today......that after preparing for the start of the Creative Christmas course I'm tutoring from next week.......I've had time to make a card.
Crafty Creations wanted 'snow' so that was my starting point......La La Land want 'punches'.........Cute Card Thursday want 'glitter'........and Secret Crafter wants 'seasons'- definately winter this one.


This was my first ever Sugar Nellie stamp..........he's been watercoloured.........card is DCWV.........papers are Magnolia ...........PM snowflake brads and punched..........xmas tree Sizzix die cut......Inca sentiment with SU punch........and lots and lots of Stickles [which hardly show in photo....as per usual!!].
Hope your weather is better than ours......high winds and pouring rain.......but enjoy your weekend whatever the weather.

Such a beautiful card! I was wondering if there was a way for me to view your blog in a larger font, as my eyes are not very good, and it is somewhat difficult to read what you have written. Any ideas?

This is lovely Jacky, soft colours and lots of sparkle! Nice weather here today, sunny and no winds! Went to craft Show in kings hall, Belfast. Had great day, met up with my friend Crafty Chris and met the great Mina. Spent a fortune on stuff I could have done without lol but had to have it!

Google Reader is a revelation, no doubt about it! Here's to hoping we all continue to make good use of it after class is finished.

Wow! I love your blog! I wish I could spend as much time on mine as it appears you do on yours. I thoroughly agree with you that housework is evil. And I understand that 'vet's pension plan'. Anyone who has pets they really care about understands that one.:D
My nearest scrap store is 35 miles away. The nearest big one is 100 miles away. That's partly why I'm going digital. But somehow, I think I'll always do my cards in paper. DragonsLady from Shimelle's class
