Only One You!



Happy Friday. Man it's cool out there, I slept with the window open and man what good sleep, then Bandit has to go out so I had to get up...........at least he gets me up so I don't have to clean it up LOL.
here is a card I made a few weeks back and I must say I really like the way it turned out. The way I colored the bird, I couldn't do that again if I tried LOL. It's 5x7, using all Stampin Up card stock except the ivory and its from Gina K. The stamps used are:
HCPC3383 Cardinal Posy Branch
HCPC3354 Classic Messages
HCPC3303 Posy Patch Flowers
HCD701 Posy Patch Die
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Doodle Parts corner die
Pearls
and last but not least the home made shimmer mist I made using the body spray and the Shimmer Paint from Stampin Up.
Sorry but I have no idea which Prisma Color Pencils I used. I am so bad at that!
Okay that's it, being I am off today, I best better clean up some, you would NOT believe the mess here in my craft/computer room. I did buy a laptop last weekend and it came yesterday.Yes I am very excited, anyway one of the IT guys from work is gonna try and get over here this afternoon to set up the wireless router, fine tune the computer. Now Bill & I can both be on the computer at the same time and stop praying the other would go away and let me play LOL. He's been researching his family history and then wants to do mine and that really takes alot of computer time, me, I wanta blog hop and comment LOL. So you can see how important both are hehe. Okay, I'm gone, I'll drop in on your blogs in a few, until then, be good!!!!

Beautiful card Olga! Love the flowers to show off the cardinal. You're going to love the laptop...I'd be lost without mine. I leave it in my craftroom. Infact we never use the desk top amymore. I'll bet it's been almost 3 years since we have used it. We turn it on once a week to run the virus scan then shut it right down.

Gorgeous card, Olga! You will just love the laptop, mine took about a week to get the hang of it compared to the big pc but now I love it! LOL on Bandit waking you up - that's always a good thing going outside! :) x0x0

Love your card, you know my favorite birds, this one sort of reminds me of the female cardinal. You will love having wireless and a laptop, I couldn't live without mine. Have a great weekend, playing.

Can't wait till you get your own computer! Larry and I have both had separate ones for over a year, until we moved here. Now we're sharing again -- not a pretty picture!!

Sue said...

Wow, this is so pretty! Love the colors, the bird, the sentiment, the layout. Did I leave out anything? Love it all! Enjoy your weekend Olga!

Theresa said...

Love the colors on your bird. Lovely card. You will love not having to share computers. Having separate computers has saved many marriages. LOL! And you will love the laptop but I still use my desktop.

Becky said...

Gorgeous card, Olga....your coloring is always awesome, I think!
I bought a laptop last year and still have my desktop, but I love, love, love my laptop! My hubby doesn't even know how to turn one on, lol...thank goodness!
Have a great week-end!!!
