I did one

I admit it, I'm addicted to Pinterest and pinning. I've always had this habit of collecting ideas, patterns, recipes and other stuff. When my first computer came along I thought how much easier it was that I could save all those things on the computer instead of in folders and boxes and drawers. I bookmarked everything but when I really wanted to go back to something I could never seem to find it. Then Pinterest came along and with the boards and the sorting and the picture I went back in to my collecting ways.
Now when I pin these things I do have intentions of going back some day and doing them. Really I do. The other day I surprised myself and actually made a card that I had seen on Pinterest. It's only one but you have to start somewhere.
The light wasn't so good when I took this picture so the colors are a little off. Maybe this weekend I'll find time to go do a few more of my pins.

I LOVE this card, Ann!
I do check my boards on Pinterest and I have every intention of trying out a couple things, but some images are for looking at only :)

Ohhhhhhhhhh, I do like this!!!! Super job. And the colors you've chosen makes it all the better. That's my opinion.

I had a go at scribbler that you mentioned, Great fun, but I lost all track of time on it,
Thanks for linking to my blog. I doubled my readers that day. Which is always nice.
I lost a follower yesterday too. My own fault I suppose, for being naughty. I must try to remember that some people might not appreciate my sense of humour.

Alas, the last time I tried to pin something I was really interested in, it did not go well at all. Granted, I was much younger then. So, experience may have taught me something by now. Of course, the only thing that I can think of at this time is to never do anything without Arlynda's express approval, and I don't believe she would approve of me going out to pick up where I left off.

I love it! I like how you were able to get the ribbon in there--I am not that talented.

And a very cute card it is! I joined Pinterest but haven't done anything with it yet!

Wishing you and sweet Duke a very happy weekend Ann!

The card is charming, as is most everything you do - But I still don't Pinterest. When I come across a recipe I want to try I just cut and paste it into a document and print it out and put it in my recipe book - so much easier to follow a recipe that is printed...

Hello Ann,
I pin a lot of stuff too, but never get around to going back to doing them. This card is adorable.
Loved your blog and the work you put into your lovely art. Following you now!
Please do visit my blog, where I write about health and living, and if you like it, please follow!

That card is so lovely. I have a Pinterest account but don't really use it. I wonder if it is because I am not crafty.

I love the card Ann. You are so talented. I admire that.

I've never been to Pinterest and probably never will. I just deleted my Facebook account. I just can't seem to get into those things.

Have a terrific day and weekend. My best to Duke. :)

Great job with the card! I'm the same way with Pinterest. There are way too many ideas out there to find time for all of them, but I keep doing a few at a time as I can.

I just pinned this - you did an awesome job. And I love Pinterest - I just collect them whether I make them or not. I just like pretties. Sandie

I agree that Pinterest is much more helpful than bookmarks for projects! You did a nice job with that card!
