Wading into the 21st Century!

For someone who is not technophobic at all, I seem to have been hiding under a rock networking-wise for the past few years. I guess I was wading in slowly...starting with this blog and moving outward into deeper waters.

With an attempt to become a little bit more current, Ill Tempered Ink is now on Blogged.com and Facebook. I think I am too verbose for Twitter so I won't be tweeting any time soon. Sorry. I'm still struggling with using "friend" as a verb...English Major...old habits die hard.

I could not believe how many people I already know on Facebook. Who knew? It's a popular place for stampers! I also found some amazing blogs on Blogged.com. With their great search ability, it's easy to find blogs I love.

Okay, onto the card for today! I tried Cuttlebug Highlights again, a Technique Junkies technique, for the background. The image is colored in with copic markers.

If you want to swim into deeper waters yourself and try something new, why not think about joining the Gingersnap Creations new Design Team? No experience necessary. The only qualification is creativity. Applications being accepted until August 15th, 2009!

Well, off to explore more new venues!
