It's been a while......

my stamping friends!!! First of all I would like to apologize for being MIA. I am having serious computer issues and had to finally give in and have the Geek Squad have a look. I have not heard back, but I am prayerful that it is not a major issue that will require a new laptop. If some things don't appear as they usually are I am sorry as I am using my DD's computer and it is naked, yep as naked as naked can get if you are talking about a computer, so please don't give up on me. ;D.


I do have a card to share with you all today as well. I made it with some of those very addicting flowers I've cut out with my Cricut Expression.


Have a look at



I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer....




Recipe:
Paper: PTI White, vellum

Stamp: ODBD Scripture Collection 3

Ink: Chalk Box Chestnut Roan, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye

Accessories:
Nesties Labels 5, butterfly die cut,
Cricut Expression and my Accent Essentials cartridge to make the flowers, Zva Creative flourish, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, Sizzix embossing folder Damask, foam tape, half pearls (for flower center on the two smaller flowers)

So, what do you think? Don't those flowers just look awesome and they are so easy, my 8 y.o. makes them with me ;D.

Well, gotta run for now, but want to say "Thank You" for not giving up on me. I had to realize that a computer is a machine after all and they break, so what good is going to do me if I stay upset over it...NONE...right, so I will keep on making my cards!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will be back on Thursday when I have another little something something for you!!

Have a fabulous day and be creative.

Hugs and blessings,

This is a beautiful card, Sabrina! I've missed you! Glad it is computer issues, and nothing else. The pearls frame the verse so nicely!

Computers are so frustrating.. This is beautiful Sabrina.. I love the flowers. I think they are so pretty with the soft color sponged on. Great job. Good luck..

Mary said...

What can I say Sabrina, your card is so gorgoeus!I love the butterfly, the flowers and the pearls that you used. I *must* try making one of those flowers. If your daughter can do it then surely I can?

I am so sorry to hear about your computer. My 7 month old computer has been acting up a great deal and needs to pay a visit to the geek squad as well. I hope to part with it by next week. I hope they can fix yours.

I've been thinking of you.;)

Just beautiful and I hope your computer gets fixed soon. I would be lost without mine everyday.

That is one GORGEOUS card!! I feel for you sitting there at that naked computer. My hubby only has solitaire and Quickverse on his-just what he considers a necessity. He doesn't even know how to get on the internet (that's a good thing though). I hope you get yours back soon. I wouldn't want to miss anything!

Sabrina, this card is sooo stunning...I just sat and stared at it for the longest time - lol! I think it's my fave card of your gallery, though you have MANY gorgeous creations! Hope your computer issues get solved quickly...been there, done that...got tired of the old PC having issues and bought a MAC...LOVE IT!
