Besides three new cards, I have something else brand spanking new in my craftroom today. Before I tell you what it is, I'll tell you how it came to be... So Tuesday, after I'd posted my latest, I was perusing FB. Saw that Silhouette had this update thingy, and that it was supposed to be uploaded by the 23rd of June, or I'm pretty sure that the world would end, or something equally catastrophic would happen. So I went to the site and began the process. I watched as it removed all the old Silhouette program files, and began the installation. Then...to my horror, it gave me an error message. The dreaded error message that I had hoped would wait... It read something like "Unable to proceed. Windows 7.1 or later necessary to complete reinstallation." Oh. My. Gosh! My poor sweet baby dinosaur was only running XP. And now I had no Silhouette files.... Only one solution. I went to Best Buy and bought me an iMac. So my poor little PC now sits, waiting for my computer geek to come and erase its hard drive, then it's off to Goodwill. Do I like my iMac? So far I do. Having worked with them at my former Museum job, and having an iPhone and iPad, it's not totally foreign territory for me. Just need to tweak a few things, and get used to some of the differences. I adore this giant screen! It's not the 27" Retinal display one, but it's that same size. And fast....blows my dearly departed PC all to bits! So that's what now taking up (less) space in here. Come on over and take a peek! I'll do some photos of my craft room once I get that credenza finished (once again it's too windy to paint...).
So. I really do have some cards to share today. Let's get to it, shall we?! First up is a card for the current one-layer challenge at Less Is More. With the theme of "Home" for us to work with. A dear friend and her family are on vacation and I thought it would be nice if they came home to some happy mail.
Now. My card is one layer, but...I did cut out the center panel and then replaced it, so technically it is still a one layer. However, if the DT decides that it doesn't qualify, then they should remove it.
All stamps are from NN, and were stamped in Versafine black and colored with Copics. The die is MFT.
Next, is a card that I'll be putting into City Crafter Challenge, and we're to use a gold die cut.
Definitely gold. Definitely gold die-cuts. The center white panel is some of that linen-like paper from the fabulous Miss Anita. Love it! And some SC punchinella vellum set on an angle. WPlus9 'thanks' die. MFT stitched rectangle die, and a smattering of gold sequins. Looks cool irl.
And lastly, a card for the Little Tangles sketch challenge.
A smidgen liberal, but you can still see the sketch, I think. All N&T stamps colored with Copics. Some BoBunny pearls, and a bit of WoS, which, of course you can't see... More of that sweet linen paper, with a bit of blue cardstock going down either side. That's it...at least I think it is. My apologies if this post looks wonky. Still working on my iMac skills, but over time I'm sure I'll become proficient. Happy Dances everyone!
