A Redecorated Blog

The first thing you will notice is that I have a newly designed blog. Since I have blogged sucessfuly for seven months I thought it was time to make a design commitment. The design was created by Designer Blogs and I couldn't be happier with my choice. They are reasonably priced (a must for me right now considering my budget) and couldn't be easier to work with. I worked with Erin and she totally got my design vision and in fact totally nailed it on the first try. Let me know what you think. Now if I could only figure out why my photos appear to be blurry only after I upload to blogger. Anyone else have this problem?

Today's Christmas in July card features the more traditional colors of Christmas. The paper is Little Yellow Bicycle which debuted a couple of years ago. I pretty much like all things LYB but their Christmas lines are always particularly beautiful. I used the same stamp as on this card which is Whiff of Joy Lizzie with Muff although this time I decided she should be a redhead. I followed the sketch from this week's Friday Sketchers challenge blog.
