Hello - hello - hello !!!!!!!!


It has been a frustrating exersize trying to get my blog to work again and I hope that I have finally done so! It has taken two weeks of hour upon hour of work for me since I have no experience with computers at all!!!!!!

I would like to post a few cards today and I am so happy to be back :o)

The first card is another Birthday Card for a friend. The stamp is from Bella and is called 'poppy BITTYBLOOM' I used Basic Grey - Urban Prairie / bountiful as my DP; and matching SU paper for the rest of it.
I used S'U dazzling diamonds; and ribbon and crystals from Michaels. I also used my Fiskars border punch, and acriylic white paint.

Here is a close up:

And the inside:

The verse:

The next card is a Sympathy one:

This card uses Whisper White, Gray and black cardstock from Stampin' Up. I stamped the top half of the card with one of my background stamps in dark gray, used some of the gray paper and put through my cuttlebug embossing folder. They were mounted on the black and I used the ribbon to mask the place where they joined. The cross and all other stamps including the sentiment are from 'Papertrey Ink'. I again used a couple of crystals from Michaels.

Here is the inside:

The next card is a Mingle made for Magnolia-licious. The theme was to take a NON - Easter image and make it into an Easter Card. All of my fine plans for this one went out the window when I couldn't find the things I wanted to use. I had to use old things in my stash and make do. I hope it looks Easter enough to fit the challenge???

You may have to look real close to see what is going on!

Here are a couple of close ups:

And of course the inside:

Thank you all for haning in there with me while my blog was out of order. I hope to be back with you on a regular basis now.

Welcome back to the blogging world. I know it is frustrating when things don't work as they should. Love your Magnolia card. Edwin looking for a kiss is perfect!!!! I don't know if I would have thought of combining all of those stamps. Love the texture on the chair too. Very nice touch! Love your cards!!

Hi Candy, Thanks for your kind comments. You're so sweet. Your cards are very cute and you have been quite busy!

You asked about who Taylor was and where I got the stamp set that I used for her card. Taylor has her own stamp company now called Taylored Expressions and I had her link on my post. Here's her blog and you can find the link to her store there too. Take care!
