Still no computer...

Some bad news reguarding my computer....it can't be salvaged! I'm pretty sure I lost all my pictures that I saved! Luckily, I am forgetful and a proscatinator....I still have most of them on the digital camera!!!!!

On another note....thank you to everyone who played along with the Birthday Sunades Blog Hop!  I have so many new followers!  I will announce the winner of my blog candy on Sunday, August 7th.

But, I am also here to show you what I made for  the Birthday Sundaes challenge... now that I can play along!



I used the same papers on this card I used on the blog hop card....digital papers from Shelley Costello purchased from www.twopeasinabucket.com .  I stitched the different patterns to the card then inked the edges with tea dye distress ink. I made my rosette by cutting a 2 inch strip of pattern paper. I scored every half inch with my scor-pal, then border punched the edge with my ek success scalloped punch. Fold accordian style, glue edges, then pop the middle down ( not sure if I am describing this right).  The scalloped die behing the rosette is from Spellbinders. The 'birthday wishes' tag was made from Papertrey Ink banner dies.  Sentiment and aqua cardstock and button are also PTI.  Twine is form www.thetwinery.com.  Gems are from Michaels.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Oh Michelle, that really stinks about your computer. I have been procrastinating too. I really have to back everything up.

Your card is beautiful. Great colors. They work so well together.

That's a bummer with your computer Michelle! I am very bad at backing things up! I lost all my pictures of my oldest as a baby a few years ago but I had them all printed, so at least I have them in some form. Thanks for joining us in the challenge!
Good Luck!

Time for a new laptop :) But still.....these things always seem to happen when you had other plans to spend your money on.....
I love your card; so bright and happy! It made me smile but I am also impressed by all the work and effort you put in to this card. The rosette is perfect and I love combo of patterned papers. Fabulous stitching!
