Welcome back!  Yesterday was a good mail day 😊 since I received my newly purchased Avery Elle Birthday Bus stamp and die set.  I think it was just released last month (mid-May).  When I saw this online, I thought, "Wow!  Surely, a carpool with friends would be more enjoyable than being dropped off by your parents.. unless, if the driver was your parent!"

Lawn Fawn: Claw-some Beary Birthday Card

I'm excited about today's project since I get to play with Lawn Fawn You're Claw-some and my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pen.  The vivid colors are perfect for the bears! It reminded me of many hours of fun and quarters spent at the arcade trying to win a bear and other stuffed animals from claw games when I was younger.  My dad passed away a few years ago.  He would keep giving me quarters until I won one (or two, or three...) 😏  Inspired by that special memory, this will be my first "masculine" card.

Spellbinders + DCWV: Bloom Hello Card

Good morning!  I just finished making Bloom Hello Card based on three card challenges.  One of the challenges required use of pattern paper, so I had to go through my stash of DCWV and pick colors similar enough to MFT (My Favorite Things) Color Challenge.  Then the fun starts with trying to (re)interpret MFT's Sketch 335 for the layout.  I've never combined these colors before which as I would describe them as orange, tangerine, medium warm gray, and pool blue.

Good Monday Morning!  I'm happy today for being able to finish this Beary Birthday Card.  The last card I made was back in April.  It took me a while to unpack and organize my crafting supplies from our recent move to a smaller city.  Actually, I still couldn't find the lamps I used for taking indoor photos, so I had to use the flash which washed out the picture.  But, it did catch the shine of the gold embossing.

How to Redirect Custom Domain Purchased from Google Domain to Blogger URL

Redirect Domain to Blogger

Happy Sunday! This afternoon, I'll be sharing my experience with redirecting custom domain - purchased from Google Domain - to an existing Blogger. Ever since I started a blog a few months ago, I've been playing with default and pre-purchased templates alike.  Though I always find there are features I wanted to add or replace.
