I'm Back!!! Yeah! :)
My friend, the pc tech, found the problem right away but had to order parts that will take about a week to get here. Thankfully, he was able to come up with a temporary "fix" to get me by until the parts come in. It's the pits being without a computer, especially when you spend as much time on it as I do!
At least I did get a few cards made so I have something to post for you. This is a get well card that I made for a good friend of ours that had back surgery last week. I wish I owned this adorable A Muse stamp, but I was just the lucky recipient of some of these cutesy images. I've colored it with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. The cardstock is Stampin' Up! Buckaroo Blue. I've stamped the top half with the Canvas background stamp. The striped paper is by Chatterbox ~ Mantle Stripe. It's a two sided paper and I've used the light blue reverse side to layer the image. The Old Olive cardstock was put through my Cuttlebug with the Mesh embossing folder. On the left is a brad & anchor and on the right side is a triangle clip that I've put a piece of ribbon through. Since this is a "guy" card, I didn't really want to use a bow, but I like the looks of ribbon for embellishment.
There is a terrific sentiment that goes with this image ~ "now I know why they call it I.C.U." Isn't that great?! : ) Instead of using that, I used a simple "get well" message instead. (see attached photo of inside card)
It's great to be back online and now I'm anxious to check out a few of my favorite blogs and the Stamp Shack too!
Smiles! Pam :)
