I am trying to figure out how to make my attached photos a medium size so that when you click on them you can see the detail but not have to scroll a lot to see the entire card. Unfortunately, to do this I have to publish the posting and those that have subscribed will be notified by email. Well, I don't want to waste an e-mail or a posting so I thought I'd share a card I made for my sister using the Spanish Gold technqiue from Technique Junkies. It looks a lot like my other Spanish Gold picture (which is why I didn't post it before.)
Here is the picture saved at 75%:

ETA: I think I prefer the smaller version since I can see it without scrolling yet I can still see plenty of detail. I am using Firefox so I don't know if other browsers view it the same. Feel free to let me know which you prefer (and why). Thanks!If you have read my blog you may already know that my sister is stationed in S. Korea. I am so very proud of her! She joined the Army as an "older" recruit in her mid 30's and made it through basic training and AIT (advanced training) even with a hip injury. Her husband and two children are here in the states while she serves at her first duty station. I can now say that my entire family is/are vets! My parents met while serving in the Navy. Although I am the eldest both my brothers joined the Army before I did. One on active duty the other in the National Guard. I joined first the Reserves while I went through ROTC and then was on active duty for over six years. Now Cori has joined! Yes, I am very proud of our family's military service.
Okay, enough blathering about my family!!!! I found the Soldier stamp at Hobby Lobby made by a company called Paper Inspirations. The mosaic background is from Starving Artists. The Spanish Gold technique is from the most recent TJ newsletters.
