Machine quilted greeting cards!

Some details...

Since I spent the weekend making a quick attempt at relearning Photoshop (here) and my photographs of the rest of the crafts that I did complete have to be retaken, I thought I would take a break from fighting with (I mean sewing) that bed jacket I am trying to make for my mom.

One post, Lifehacker, is something I already subscribe to, so I was excited to see the article about Photoshop in my in-box.

will take you to a post on HTML by a blogger I follow.

I hope you get a chance to be creative today!
