Computer on the Fritz!!!!

I am very sorry that I have not been in the loop of the card and creativity world the last twooooo long weeks. I have been having major computer problems and won't be able to upload all of my creations. I have them in a pile just waiting to be uploaded. I will probably on Sunday. I am having a computer tech come to my house and try and fix my problem on Saturday. Can't wait. Hang in there girls. Just think like Christmas is this weekend and you have to wait to see. I know what your thinking.... I'm a peeker and can't wait... Sorry! I will try again to get something uploaded. Not promising though.

Hanging with a friend

I have some time to think about my friends and how important they are and the ones that have not talked to in a while. I decided to give them a call.

Folding card

I hope that you are feeling better. I just made this folding card. I did make a spiral pop up card too. The pcx didn't come out very well. So, I will stick

with this one. My base card is 5 x 10 1/2, and scored at the 1 1/2 inch mark and then 2 1/2, 4 1/4, 6, 8 1/4 inch marks. I layered in on a piece of cardstock. I used the new set from Kim Hughes - comforting hugs. I just love this set. I then used the copic mkrs and colored them all in and cut them out of my cs and adhered them to the folds. The sentiment is popped. You can't see it in the picture. I sponged the background to blend. Very cute. The back side of the folds are blank to write stuff. Hee! Hee! Enjoy. I had so much fun with this card

My Thank You!

I made two cards. One for my staff at Hamden Healthcare and the other for one of my patients family members at work. I reassure her everyday when she comes in to take care of Mom. She is finally getting it that she is a different mom inflicted with a terrible disease and her personality is going to change daily and the education we teach her about Alzheimer's will hopefully help the dgtr with dealing and coping and understanding the changes in Mom. Even though she will always be Mom I want to thank you.

Heres to you Doc!

I just wanted to thank the Dentist for taking me in to check my mouth. I fractured a tooth and my appointment wasn't until Thursday (today) when I broke it on Tuesday. The dentist was out of the office (playing golf) and dropped the clubs and came into work to fixit. To make a long story short it was the second time (his day off) that he resued me. so I made him this thank you card. It looks really flat her but trust me it is popped to the hilt. You know me and Pop dots. It came out very nice.

Always thinking of you!

I made this card for a girlfriend of mine. I am always thinking of her. She has had a really ruff time with one of her girls. She has been sick on and off for a few years. Now symptoms are coming back again (nervous!) and so off to the hospital again. To compound it she is a fellow scrap and stamp girl and her house was broken into and they stole all kinds of stuff including her camera and lenses, memories, and hubbys wedding ring. so sad... anyways she has a great attitude about it. I say glad it wasn't a home invasion when you all were there. We had an aweful one a few months ago the Pettit family in Chesire, CT They killed the mom and two kids and tried to the father but he made it. I would want to die if my family was wiped out. anyways she has a great outlook on things. and I am glad that she wasn't home at the time. So, I am thinking of you girl.

Dishing the Dirt!

This was a great inspiration to gardening. I have been working really had on my gardens this year. I do have to say that I haven't really enjoyed them because the rain had made them come and go really fast. It does look cool that there is something blooming and makes for interesting colors. I also had some great inspiration from one of the blogs that I surf. I do get some really great ideas, paper combos, and layouts from them.
