This ones for you Carey xoxo

Hello to all my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!
Well I spent the entire day and most of last night on the computer! Can you say FLAT BUTT on the internet lololol. Boy, did I ever learn a lot today!!!! I completed all the Webnards and most of the additional training videos and took the tests. I'm not compulsive :) or anything. It is really fun to see how each presenter has their own tricks of the trade so to speak in operating their MDS. Thanks to Patty Bennett I even took  her advise and downloaded the newest version. I was running the older version of MDS as that is what it comes with. (Look under HELP on the MDS tool bar click Check for updates and it will take you through the steps to update your MDS. I somehow found a ton more free downloads on my personal SU web page yesterday too. Carey I called SU and the customer service gal directed me to a screen that had them. I think there were 4 or 5 of them. So have Vicki call SU for help in finding them OK      (I don't know how I got them or if I earned them this year but they were free). I know one was a gift from Shelli last year. I chose the calendar. I can not wait to play with that option.

I made this card especially for my BFF as she is the one who hooked me on rubber stamping :) This is supposed to be a Tri-Fold card Carey. It has been about 10 years now that she taught me to stamp. I said I wanted to learn to make cards like she did and it was love at first stamp. She took me to my first convention in Riverside Calif and as we were leaving I said "That was a blast! I gotta do some more of that". Her friend tuned around and said to me "YOU GOT $1000.00?" Because that will only get you started. Well she was right ") I won't say what my total investment in rubber is, but I know I am a better person because of it. That is why I am so grateful for my BFF. Happy New Year Friend. Enjoy your card.

Oh sniff, sniff, thank you so much my dear. I love my card. In January it will be 9 years since you started (I think). We met in June or July of 2001 and we went to Riverside convention in January after that. I can't believe we both have been stamping as long as we have. You had a real learning marathon. I am incredibly impressed. I am looking at the webinars again. I hadn't played much with MDS when I watched them the first time. Now that Ihave more experience with it I am learning a lot more this time. Anyone that is starting to stamp don't let my friend Auldene's comment of $1000 scare you. You can spend just a little on stamping ($100) and get lots of wonderful results. Or you can go hog wild like we both have and spend lots. I love you my BFF and thank heaven for you all the time. Happy New Year to all of my furry and nonfurry Patrice family.
