Hooray for Hump Day

It's Wednesday, everyone! It's all downhill from here! You CAN make it - repeat, "I CAN make it!" Then, you have two days to kick back! That's one of the nice things about retirement - everyday is the weekend!

I resolved my computer issue for the time being. Thank you so much for caring. FYI, I left the unplugged computer on and drained the battery. Then, I let it sit overnight to make sure that every ounce of "juice" was out of that battery. I checked to make sure that there were no lights showing on the computer. There were none which told me I could now plug it in. I didn't turn it on, I just plugged it in. By afternoon, it was up to 100%! It still drops its charge too soon for my liking, so I guess I'll eventually need a new battery. I have to thank my DS for telling me what to do.

I have a new card to share today. I hope you like it.

I used one of the new Sweet Rainbow Collection stamps. Tilda is flying her kite. It's soooooooooooo cute! I did some paper piecing to create the scene behind Tilda. There are Stickles on the kite, hairbows, and eggs in the nest just to add a little sparkle. Here is the cover of the card:



The left interior card features a handmade pleated ribbon flower, lace trim, and a punched border. Also are die cut leaves and removable stamped tag tucked into the pocket.



The inside, right, of the card is fairly basic. I used a die for the brown, a border punch for the tan sentiment area, and a slotted bow. I love those bows because they are so neat and tidy looking.



Thank you so very much for visiting. I hope it was worth your time. I sure love when I am able to share with you. Please do come back again!

Blessings,
Chris
