Computer Vacation Creations

My laptop is still sick, but I drug the desktop out of "storage" because I just can't stand it any longer. Maybe Kenny will take a day or two out of his busy hunting season and take the laptop to the doctor (one of his friends). If not, I am going to have to resort to Geek Squad - LOL. While I have been off-line, I have made a lot of cards. Here are a few:


Made one of these for a friend at work whose husband is going to long-term rehab due to some serious health issues that totally came out of the blue and I gave the other to my sweet Mom to send. Mom sends lots of cards. She makes most herself, but she always uses any I give her too. She loved this one so much she copied it and made some like it. How fun to be cased by your Mother. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread and most the paper is from SU!.


This was the birthday card I made my Mother for her 77th Birthday. She has always reminded me of Audrey. I love this image from LilyPink Designs (available at Can You Digi It?). I used SU! Dazzling Details to add sparkle to her lips and hair. Mom loved it.


I shopped the clearance rack at SU! and found this beautiful paper really cheap. I have made a bunch of cards with it and they all came out beautiful. I got the idea for this one out of the 2012/13 SU! catalog since I couldn't get inspiration on line.

I have missed you and will make it over to visit you this week - I promise!

  1. I hope your lap top is better soon, there is nothing worse and you realize just how much you rely on them. At least you have more time to make your wonderful cards. The Audrey card is very Hollywood.

  2. What a wonderful mix of cards. Love the iron gate border around the sentiment on the first ones and the torn paper and colour combo. What a fun, glamorous second card with the touches of sparkle being perfect. Great snag on the paper and loving the monochromoatic tones of brown. Fingers crossed for the computer. It it doesn't work, try pointing one of hubby's shot guns at him to see if it gets him moving over to his friend's house wink, wink LOL!

  3. A wonderful collection of cards. Really love the first one with the framing, torn paper effect and the lovely sentiment. The second is very glamorous with lovely touches of sparkle. The buttons look fab on the last one.
    Sorry to hear about your laptop. When mine was out of action it was not good, felt like my arm had been chopped off. I am so reliant on it. Hope you get it sorted soon.

  5. Nancy, I LOVE that first card and it reminds me of the song, The Anchor Holds. I think I'll have to go online and listen to it. It is a super song.
    Your Mom's card is so pretty and I'm thinking she loved it even more that it came from you. It's so wonderful that you can share a hobby.
    Your button card is beautiful, too.
    Oh, that computer.....hide Kenny's hunting guns until that puter gets fixed. LOL

  7. I'm so glad you are back online again, Nancy, even if it is a band-aid fix. Looks like you have been busy. Your anchor cards are my favorite! Nautical things are really hot right now :-)

  9. Welcome back - I've missed you. I know this is a temporary fix, but at least we get to see some of your wonderful creations. I love all of your cards - the first set is just beautiful. Wow, what an inspiration to be able to share the art of stamping with your Mom. And the second card is gorgeous!! Such a beautiful creation! Love your Happy Birthday card with the fab find paper - it's really pretty too!! Isn't it strange going to a paper catalog for inspiration? But hey, whatever it takes, right? And more importantly it worked!!! Hope everything is back to normal soon. Sending you and your computer HUGE HUGS!!!
    And Blessings,
    Audrey
