Woo hoo my computer is working and so much to tell. Stay tuned.

Oh my, happy Thursday and it has been forever since I could get on this laptop and still can't figure out my Mac so since this worked I figured I would blog. Ugh, my life has been busy with trying to find work and a house. It looks like Spring has finally arrived here. YAY! I am going to show you on my card that Spring is here. LOL!

I stamped this card for the Freshly Made Sketch and Colourq Card challenges. My card base is Soft Suede with my second layer Tangerine Tango that I had laying on my desk textured with the Argyle Embossing Folder. I tied some Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon around my card front. Then I had a scrap of Blushing Bride which was an old in color but I had scraps left in my scrap box and I just found out that due to a Color Refresh which I will tell you about later this Blushing Bride is coming back when the new catalog comes out.  Yippee! I punched that out with my 2-1/2" Circle Punch and then stamped the flower from the Summer Solstice set in Daffodil Delight Ink on Whisper White and punched it out with a (shhhh don't tell) a non Stampin' UP! 2-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch that I bought to fit inside my 2-1/2" circle punch. I sponged around both circles with Soft Suede ink. Then stamped the Best Wishes from the Rotary stamp from the This and That Bundle that S U is offering now. So many new things. I added some pearls to my flower and walla that was my card. Very easy peasy!  

Here are the Details:
Stamp Sets: Summer Solstice, This and That Bundle (133350 for $32.08)
Card Stock: Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, Blushing Bride, Whisper White

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to be back soon. I am at the mercy of this dang laptop that only seems to work part of the time anymore. I am so frustrated with it. Anyway have a great Friday.
Hugs, Bev
