I'm back on "blogland" once again...hmmhmm


I'm back! 
Our new computer arrived yesterday afternoon and my hubster spent all night getting it set up. I've spent all morning installing the programs I use regularly (iTunes, PSE, Audible, etc.) just so I can post a card to my blog and check my email! 
How pathetic.
 Although I will admit to running to the library early this morning to check Nichole's blog for a sneak peek and hop onto the PTI forum for a while...*grin*


Hey, a girl has to do what a girl has to do, right? *snort*

I still have no access to our old hard drive and all my photo albums, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that our repair man can recover them...*sniff sniff*

I made this card quickly last night and took the photo this morning. (hence the terrible direct light)
Yesterday I also received in the post my first ever order from Flourishes! (see that awesome tree?!) I was pleasantly surprised at the lovely packaging. So fun!

Anyway, all CS is PTI, Tree image is Flourishes, Sentiment and ribbon are PTI, material flower is Prima. Impression plate and nestabilities also used.

Thanks for hanging in there while I had no computer, love you guys! (and I have 473 things in my google reader...*sigh*)

This card is GORGEOUS!!!!! :)

Glad you have your new computer! I just got a laptop and it does take a while to get everything loaded, doesn't it?

This card is beautiful...I've never used my linen/canvas IP, I should! Did you sponge the blue around the focal image, or the white next to the tree? It's so pretty!

The tree is beautiful, and that flower, swoon (I thought you made it!) Really pretty card Dana! Glad you've got your "lifeline" back ;)

Good luck with your computer-I hope you can recover your photos! I have had to make the library run, too, when our computer was down! I really like the colors you used on this card and the flower! I have been on the fence about that impression plate, but you are talking me into it! :)
