I've been "grounded"

To say the least......I have been grounded from uploading or downloading anything on the Internet. I live in an area where I have dial up or satellite for my Internet options. I was never informed that I was only allowed to upload & download a certain amount of stuff each month. I must stay at or below 70% of my bandwidth in order to not be grounded. I was informed that i was in violation of the Fair Access Policy. Had I known there was a limit each month for satellite customers I would have gladly stayed within my range and not made a little piggy of myself. So long story short....that's where I have been. I have been watching my numbers and have finally reached a point where I am safe again. OK with that said Here are a few cards & a page I have been working on and/or received this past month. Three of the cards were made on Wednesday at Sam's. The red card is her shoebox. I am sorry i have been out if it so long I forgot to get who makes the stamp. I think it is Sassafrass but not positive. She picked it up at the Stamp convention that was just in Mesa, Az on the 19th. Carolyn made the golf card with a stamp she picked up at Creative Quest in Glendale, Az. It is hard to see but the middle picture is popped up. Thanks Sam & Carolyn! Our next card is from Vickie....I had never tried the masking tape technique before and Vickie who is fairly new to stamping walked us through. She used her new SU! set "Touch of Nature" with Real Rust, Chocolate Chip & white. I love how the making tape makes it look like bark or woody. Great card Vickie. One of our stamping buds...Laura went back to work so doesn't get to stamp with us much anymore but she does still send me cards that are cute as ever. Laura has her mojo always going, I swear. We miss her creativity. She sent me the next two cards, which I love. Thank you for the Thank you cards Laura

The digi page is of my DGD....she is 18 months old and such a hoot. She didn't want to take her Uncle Steve's gag glasses off. She finally pulled the arm off so they wouldn't stay on anymore & then she lost interest. In the meantime we sure had fun with her.
