Just a note...

OK!  So I am happy to be on here today....or at least right now....and am able to say that I *think* I have solved the 2 month long issues with my computer! Talk about frustrating! I thought it was my computer and a virus or something and I am thinking it turned about to be my Internet! It was just SO slow and I couldn't get on for long periods of time so finally I just stayed off all together! So I am here and testing it out and LOVING it!

I had to stop by and share a card! I made this one awhile back and almost forgot about it!

I used a little Mehndi for the background!  And those gorgeous flowers I love so much from PTI's anniversary set!  Super quick and simple!

Hope you are all doing well!  Off to check out my overflowing reader!  :)

Laurie, I'm ashamed to say that I have not inked up my "Mindy" stamp yet! Love how you've used it as background paper here!

Can't wait to see you on Sunday!!! :)
Please no rain please no rain.

OK...
I have to echo Amy...
I bought "Mindy" because of you...
and yet it still sits uninked :(
But this card makes me want to get it out and play...
it's gorgeous!
And those flowers...
even I can't screw them up...
that's how gorgeous and easy to use they are! :)
And btw...
a butterfly flaps its wings in Africa...
my internet gives me problems...
you're not alone! :)

Light bulb moment! Mendhi Medallion with Botanical Silhouettes! Gorgeous and genius. I would've never paired these up, but I sure am glad that you did! Thanks for the great inspiration!

Stunning card - they don't get better than this! :)

Stunning, stunning, stunning! I probably shouldn't write this, but every time I see your PTI cards, I think "why is she not a PTI designer?!?" :)

Leigh said...

I love how you used the MM stamp to create the background! Lovely!

Joyce said...

Love this beautiful card. The purple pulls everything together so nicely. Do you know that I have pinned so many of your cards, that I am about to give you your own board? So glad your computer issues are resolved. That can be such a time sink.
