Heart 2 Heart: Thank You! (and uploading photo problem resolved?)

(If you have had problems uploading your photos, see the end of my blog for what I did to fix the problem.)
On facebook I've been doing the "30 days of gratitude" and telling something I'm thankful for each day...usually more than one thing. It just seems like there's too many things to mention in one status each day! I have been thankful lately for all of the new CTMH blogging sisters I've "met" and for the support from other CTMH consultants. And I'm thankful I discovered the Heart 2 Heart challenge blog...challenges that are for CTMH lovers! This week's challenge was "thank you" and here's my take:





This card was pretty simple to make. Took a standard sized card and cut a strip off. I then used a border punch on the edge. Then I cut another strip and scored it before gluing it under the cardstock on the inside. I used some of my stashed away Miracle Kit and the November SOTM, a few pearls and some hemp. The border punch is SU.
Here's another one that I made for my daughter's 15th birthday:





Sound like a lot of people have been having issues upoading photos to their blog. I did too. I went back to settings and reset to the old editor. Then I uploaded (forgetting that you have to load in reverse order with the old editor!) and it worked. Now it's letting me use the new version even though my settings say the old one!
