Good Luck . . . and One of my Favs

My husband is taking his mock oral boards today. I am wishing him luck even though it is not the real thing. He has been up for 24 hours and needs to be fully alert. (he is REALLY cranky and a bit elusive when he hasn't had much sleep).

My share today is a darling baby girl card. This is one of my favorite cards that I have made in a while. I'm not sure exactly what I love about it. I think it is the sweetness in it.

Getting Noticed by Web Searches

This is a different type of post for me. I am in the middle of building a new website. (insert roars of cheers and excitement, LOL!) I have had many people ask how they can get better rankings with major search engines. I set out to answer that question in a paragraph email and realized quickly that I could write an entire book on the subject. Actually, many have been written on this exact topic. Most of the people I rub virtual elbows with are like me: stay at home mom's, extremely small outsource designers, etc. So, I wrote an article geared toward the small operation that will most likely doing all the work themselves. I tried to be general and not assume that you have a degree in web development (is there such a degree?). I hope that you will find this article useful and easy to follow.

Happy Anniversary to Me!

Well, yesterday was my 8th wedding anniversary! I am so blessed to be married to such a wonderful man. We have not been able to celebrate. He has a ridiculous work schedule at the moment, but we will do something this weekend (Sound of Music Ballet and Dinner). So, to honor such a special occasion to me. I am sharing a wedding card I recently made.

Another Scripture Card

I made this card after a yellow scripture card that I had made last week (or maybe a little longer). This card is made to look a little rugged or western-ish.

Thanks for looking! It is always good to be blogging with great visitors. :)

Welcome to May!!

It is somewhat unbelievable that May is already here. I love summer but feel as if it is rushing upon me this year. May begins our countdown to when the Spray Ground will open near our house. I love summer activities.

My share today has nothing to do with summer. I don't typically make cards that are "seasonal". So, I will share a warm baby boy card instead.
