Am bummed...

out as we got home from a family reunion and my lovely computer was down. As in down and out. It is a large screen IMac and over the weekend it's LED light went out so I am trying to blog through my ipad. I hope it works! My son is teaching me to upload the pics through my ipad and then blog it all out..... I colored this card awhile ago but haven't had the chance to assemble it till yesterday and I really am SO pleased with how it turned out. Don't you love it when that happens? You just finish a card, sit back in your chair and then give a little satisfied nod. That's what happened with this card.

Ugh and double ugh....I could NOT make the iPad blogging work....so, here we try again.  I am now trying to use a pretty old computer and with some great help from my son Corm I think I have a way to upload and blog until my good computer is fixed.  Can't wait till I have it back.  It has been a while since I have blogged...with the 4th, a family reunion and a death my time has been pretty short.  I do have a card today though and hope to be able to schedule some "me" time in the next few days.  It is funny how much I miss putzing with papers and ink....and how much I miss my daily walks when something "larger" in my life takes over. With this card I used some Spellbinder's grand dies.  I love this die for a card shape!  I also picked up some great Spellbinder's dies from Micheals .....they had a great "buy one get one 50% off" deal going on and yes, I totally took advantage of that!  I used one of my favorite Northwoods Rubber Stamps and voila!  Here is my card!


Thank you for stopping by.  Now that we have this old computer up and running I plan on blogging stopping by you all.  

Be well,
Sheila

Absolutely beautiful card, Sheila!
The cutout die behind is stunning and I love how you popped up the lilies! Hope you get your computer fixed soon! Such a drag to have to fuss with that :(

One word....STUNNING! I love the rich colours you used, Sheila. I can tell that you're a flower lover, like me.
Lucky you getting such a bargain at Michael's. I wish we had Michael's here in the UK.
I blog hop using my iPad, but I didn't know you can upload photos. I use my desk top computer to do that xx

Sounds like we need to color you happy, Sheila! So sorry about your computer woes....we get so desperate when they don't work. This card is so amazing - love the richness and all the yummy layers. Lots of love in this one!

I live in fear everyday, waiting for my ancient computer to drop dead! It's runs slower all the time, so I can imagine what a bummer it was for you to come home to yours not working.

I'm so glad you were able to figure out a way of sharing this amazing card, Sheila! It is stunning! :)

Beautiful, beautiful! Love your flowers & all the layers are perfect! Hope you get your computer back soon. We sure rely on them now--hard to remember not having them!

what a delightful card Sheila. Hope the computer is fixed soon. Know how frustrating it can be to have a broken computer.

Wowzers Sheila! I'm picking my jaw up off the floor!! I can see why you were very pleased with this card-it's stunning!!! I haven't attempted to blog through my IPad yet. I guess I should learn in case our old computer decides to die!
