Blog Makeover - MDS Style!!

How do ya like my new digs??? I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon/early evening giving my blog a face lift. I am SOOO happy that I was able to incorporate all of the elements from things I had created using My Digital Studio (the banner, sidebar background, buttons and my signature were ALL created in MDS!!). I am really happy with how it turned out. PLUS my good friend,Michelle Baird (owner of Shabby Creations) helped me learn how to put it together myself!! She ROCKS!! Thanks, Michelle!!

Speaking of makeovers ... this card was a major makeover in and of itself! I actually had it all finished using the Black Magic technique on the kraft colored cardstock ... did NOT like how it turned out, so I tore it apart and redid about half of it!! Actually, this is a quick and simple little card (if ya don't try doing something else entirely when you start!).

Also, I did a makeover on my watermark, too (boy, was I in a MOOD yesterday!). So now I just need to get a makeover for myself (too bad they can't make me TALLER, with fewer WRINKLES!!)!! Smiley from millan.net

Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers
Paper: So Saffron, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Whisper White
Accessories: Whisper White embossing powder, Large Oval Punch, Elegant Bouquet and Finial Press Textured Impressions embossing folders, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Vintage brads, pop-up glue dots

Have a happy day!

Love the makeover and the card.

Great makeover. I did the same thing last week with my blog and MDS although I haven't figured out about the signature. Would love any tips!! Also Blogger doesn't have a watermark program which is a bummer so I do it in Photo Printshop which I am also learning after having it on my computer over a year!!

Wendy as I said in my previous post I love your new look! Wow I have the MDS and haven't done a thing with it. I wish you lived closer so you could give me a private class LOL! I am a visual learner and cannot teach myself so maybe at convention I can get some help from SU!
