Darn computers!!!

Okay, so more like "darn routers"!! Ours is not working again. It quit a few days ago but I'm still not in the mood to call customer service only to speak with someone I can't understand and they don't have the patience to help. Maybe this afternoon I'll subject myself to the torture.
I do have a few things to upload so hopefully if all goes well I'll share.
Have a great Friday everyone!

Some ATC's I made last week for a swap. They are 2.5" x 3.5". I haven't made very many of these yet. The smaller size is fun to work with though. And are a great addition to a layout or card front.
Ingredients: Brocade Blue and Whisper White cardstock, Whisper White craft, and black stazon ink. I colored in the snowmen with the pencils and blender pens. Added some glitter with the liquid glue. The stamp set I used was Flaky Friends. I cut 2 snowmen out of the grouping.
Ingredients: Real Red, Black and Whisper White cardstock, Real Red and Black ink. Covered the butterfly with Crystal Effects and sprinkled just a few granules of glitter over top. Stamp set is of course, Priceless.
Ingredients: This is done using Joseph's Coat technique. Real Read, Pumpkin Pie, and glossy white cardstock. Fiesta spectrum pad, clear embossing powder and ribbon. The stamp set is Lovely as a Tree.
I made this card for the little girl that lives next door, she turned 2 years old on Saturday!! Very exciting. Ingredients: Whisper White and Pink Passion cardstock, Pink Passion and Tempting Turquoise ink, crystal effects and dazzling diamonds. Do I need to mention the stamp set??
Close up of the butterfly and 'tail'. It's really pretty IRL.

I've had a few minutes

This is a card going to a friend of mine who is going through a horrible time right now. Just want her to know to hang tough and things will turn out in time.
I used Cameo Coral and Always Artichoke cs and ink. I scalloped the cs with my corner rounder again. Love that look. This is one I did just because. I wasn't sure about the color combo but it's on the color coach so thought I would try it. Not bad, but it does look better IRL. But then again, I think cards always look better IRL. The flower is dry debossed to give it a 3-D look.

Have a great rainy and windy day!!

As promised

Here are a few layouts I've done this month.
This first one I've just added a photo to the pattern paper. I have no idea what else to add to not make it look overdone. I'm still playing around. The pp is from the Baroque Backgrounds pack. It's yummy!! This pp is also from the Baroque Backgrounds. I covered all 3 pieces of chipboard with pp. On the top part of the chocolate chip cardstock I ran my ink pad down it. Just to give it a little something without putting an acutal design on it. I also used the new Rhinestone brads. Very nice.
This entire layout is made from the Level 1 hostess scrappin' kit. Lots of fun to work with.

Not my fault

Really, it wasn't my fault I've been slack with posting on here. For the past week our wireless router wasn't working so I couldn't access my laptop, and this is where I upload all my pics onto. My desktop didn't like me trying to install my camera program onto there. So I just couldn't do it. Am I out of the doghouse yet?? Oh, the 3 weeks before that where I didn't post, um, just been busy with summer stuff I guess.

So, now that everything is back to normal I'm hoping to have some time tomorrow to show you some stuff. Stay tuned...
