Sketch & 3 D flower Challenge card

Double Challenge Card!

Clean and simple sketch challenge FTL87 Love the look of this sketch and No Time to Stamps SS137 challenge for a 3D flower. 

SCS Challenge card

I was especially impressed with how fast this card came together because I am not a fast stamper.  The hardest part was getting the scallop edge punch and the corner punch to line up right.  I wasted about four different squares of CS and it STILL came out a little off.  I don't have this problem with the other punches I have.  Hmmmm.  I was wondering where I could possibly use this green Prima with and lo and behold this DP matches.  Unbelievable.

Blue Vase with Daisies

Love these daisies.  I found both the daisy and the vase on the Walk in My Garden Cricut cartridge.  What I love about it is that I can make soooooo many different sizes of daisies.  This is a one inch daisy and the vase is 2 inch.  The butterfly was cut using a MS punch and I used my new SU punch for the sentiment.  Woohoo.  TFL!

Computer Problems, GRRRRRRRR

I think computers are a wonderful invention.  Someones idea of torturing us. LOL  I purchased a Portable Media Device which can also be used as an external drive to safeguard my photos and my cards.  So, what happens?  The silly thing goes bonkers on me.  Not only have I lost ALL the pictures and cards that I didn't have the good sense to upload to an additional place, but now I have to figure out another way of uploading to my blog.  I dislike intensly figuring new things out!!  Ok nuff said, I finally figured out where on my computer this picture lurked and how to get it here.  This is still using the Vintage Vogue set.  (as an added bonus, my blog has changed the method it used to upload so I have to figure that out too.  Sometimes it doesn't pay to get up!)

SU Vintage Vogue set

Wow Posting three cards in one day!!! I have been stamping, but not posting.  I finally broke down and bought the IN colors and the Vintage Vogue set.  I love the flowers of course but I also love the sentiments.  I am not real impressed with the SU textured CS though.  Too flimsy I think. 
I found the Ric Rac on the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge.  Will be using it again I think.  The BG is a Hero arts Stamp and I stamped the image long ago.  You can barely see it but I used the new Vintage Label underneath the Flower too. 
Last but not least the Happy Birthday Card.  All the added curly q's are the result of sloppy stamping.  I had to find someway to cover it up as I made the mistake of adhering the flowers 1st before I stamped the sentiment.

Okay, I have had it with the computer today.  I tried posting on SCS 3 times, no luck.  I tried a couple of times here, had to come back.  Now one of the cards I uploaded has disappeared.  Grrrrrrrrrrr.  I will try again tomorrow I think.  Time to give it a rest.

I am loving the new (to me) IN color Melon Mambo.  I really thought that the Razzleberry would be my fav but I find myself using Melon more.  WHATEVA!   I saw this cute card with the Whateva on it and I promply drew it and set it aside.   Found it the other day and this card is the result.  I used my quiller to make the flower.  Really do love the look of this.
