All Heart!


Image "Jar of Hearts" by Bugaboo Stamps
This week at The Outlawz, The Greetings Challenge Team is inviting you to "Show Us Your Hearts". We would love to see your creations we know they will be awesome.  When I saw this jar of hearts image, I figured it would be fun to just color it.  Yesterday I had a coloring session with my grandson, Josh.  A great time was had by all!

I love my Big Shot!  I think it just makes such crisp, sharp embossed  designs!  I put both folders on the  BS at the same time because I wanted my heart to be de-bossed.  The Alignment worked out perfectly and helped with with the final placement of my focal image.  I am so addicted to my BS that I bought a second one in case anything happened to the first one.  I know they won't stop making them, but my second one also had the cool platform that they don't make anymore.  I am so careful with my original platform  I don't like the new ones.  Maybe I should start a petition! :D)
Hope everyone is off to a wonderful start, this week!  Thanks for dropping by!

  5. Nearly every home in the world has some sort of online gaming device. Some people play online gaming as a livelihood, while others play for leisure. No matter why you are playing, games are not going anywhere. The advice below is truly priceless.

    Any game you give your child should be age-appropriate. You can do this easily by checking the game's front packaging or cover for the age rating. Some computer games focus on violence, which you should avoid.

    Watch your body when you play online games. If you are playing online games, try sitting on a exercise ball to help you maintain proper posture. Also, be sure and take regular breaks and stretch every so often.

    If you have a kid and they get too aggressive when they play too many video games, you may need to put them into some sort of a time out. Give him a 10-minute warming, and then call an end to the game. Suggested activities include exercise or playing outside. This will focus his mind on something less stressful.

    Hang onto those old video games you used to play. Trade in your games for new ones or for cash to maximize your investment. You can use store credits from your old games to go towards the purchase of new ones.

    If you are frustrated, give the game a break for awhile. Often, you will not be at the top of your game, as you may want to choose another time to try to beat it. Don't sit there and get angry or frustrated when you should be having fun instead.

    What is your body doing as you play? While sitting at a online game, you might want to use a pillow or other device to support your spine. If you really get into your action games, you might find yourself sitting for hours on end. Try to schedule regular breaks to get up and move around.

    It may sound simple purchasing a new game; however, it can be quite a difficult decision. You can waste money on bad games if you don't do your research. Read reviews on the Internet to see how good a game is before you make a purchase.

    Rather than spending money on a new ps3, consider playing your favorite games on your computer. Many games, especially ones that have been out for a while, are avaiable to be played free online. This allows you game play at a much lower price.

    Buying a new game is tougher than you may think. You might waste a lot of money on a game you end up hating. Read game reviews before making a purchase.

    Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

    Almost everyone plays video games today. By following this article's advice, you can maximize your enjoyment from your video games. Be sure to have fun when playing.

  6. Oh Chana~I have a BS but now I need to get a bunch of dies & they are SO expensive. UGH Where are you getting them? I love your card & I love the fact that you & Josh colored together. :)

  7. Just beautiful Chana - I'm confused tho about the debossing/embossing. Could you email me sometime when you are free at vweber at lagrant dot net?Thx hun!

  8. Really wonderful embossing, Chana! Love your coloring on that image. Can you believe I have that one and haven't colored it up yet? You inspire me to get on the ball and do it. :-D

  9. I sure wish I had those embossing plates! I love that you and your grandson made this together :)
