Are you out there? I hope so!!
I am one happy girl... yep' home from the travels and grabbed a moment to make a card!! Well, happy and sad... sad that this is the last WMSC and sad that my old computer failed me last nite and I wasn't able to post it in time for the challenge....(was clicking on the insert image icon and there was no "choose files" or 'browse' button to pull pics from my computer... had to save to picasa web album and pull from there.... sheesh, sometimes blogger likes to stretch my brain cells, LOL!!
THRILLED that I have a new computer (Xmas present) and it's working like a charm!! Just have to download/ set up some programs that I didn't have time to do before I left on my travels.
I had a wonderful time visiting with family... when you laugh so hard... sides ache... wiping the tears... dang, I miss them already!! Even with all the serious business... (FIL's estate finally settled... that was a project!!! Hubs and I have a farm... one that I lived on when I was a newlywed....it's "gone to pot"... the house anyway.... but, Bill and I have plans to slowly fix things and get the house in a liveable state!) And, the weather in the Midwest... a little cold, a little snow, a little rainy (had to watch for freezing temps/weather to plan driving routes) but, we accomplished everything and my SIL can now head to Florida!!
It's a bright one... lots of color.... yes, I am HAPPY!!
I am a paper hoarder... there I said it!! Decided this year I had to use up some of the patterned papers I own before I can buy more.... hard to do... went looking today.... picked some out... placed in my card... but, I didn't check out!! Found these papers in my stash before I left for the Midwest so, when I got back I decided to use them with Waltzingmouse Stamps Sewing Box Hugs... perfect fit!! Stamped and fussy cut several flowers from the set, sprayed with water, crinkled, and layered for a somewhat 3D effect. The background doily and sentiment flag are MFT die-namics. Added some twine, seam binding bow with pearly center.
Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!! Ha... I'm sitting here working from two computers since everything is not switched over and keep grabbing the wrong mouse...and, Windows 8 is different from previous versions.... I will persevere!! Honestly, I am gabbing up a storm!! Sorry!!
