I Like You

My computer is finally back to normal thanks to Sean at the Geek Squad.

It's amazing that we ever got along without computers.
It was a struggle to go a few days without one!

I think I'm nearly caught up and wanted to share some things I've been working on.

Here's one...


I've been enjoying my Blendabilities and this Hostess set is perfect for coloring with them.

is looking for holiday cards.
This will be sent for Thanksgiving.

Addicted to Stamps and More!

Since this is the first time these flowers have been inked,
I'm off to join
celebrating her 600th follower.
She's gone beyond 600 and is well on her way to 700.
She has awesome prizes but I think most of us would participate 
just because we love her.

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

I've used option #4 - None of the Above

Rock the Technique
I'm hoping using Alcohol Markers is considered a technique.

This is just lovely! I have such a hard time creating one layer cards, and this is so classy.

I like the pretty colours of your flowers. Blogger is playing hide and seek with my readers list again so I'm taking pot shots in the dark on visiting everyone. Hugs Mrs A.

So beautiful and great coloring with the Blendables! Love the font on that sentiment too.
Glad all is ok once again with your computer. Most of the time I'd like to throw mine out the window but then would hate to be without it!

Aw, man, what a sweet thing to say, Bon Bon! I love you, too! And I love your beautifully colored card!! I think SU should have a "Blendabilities Expert" deal like Copic does and I think you should be certificated!! Thank you so much for playing again in my second NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

Colleen Dietrich said...

Good for you, Bonnie, getting your computer back up and working right (well, thanks to the Geek Squad!). You're right: what did we ever do before computers?? I love being on mine, too. :)

Love this card...the sentiment speaks of Thanksgiving, but the flowers have a fresh, end of summer/beginning of fall feel.

Kylie said...

thank goodness that you have your computer back to normal, yay! Beautiful, beautiful card Bonnie. Love the flowers and score lines and the script for that sentiment is delightful! Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM xx

Glad to hear the computer is back & ready to go to work. I can see that you didn't stop working on cards! Love these pretty flowers & the way you've cornered them. Lovely fall colors with your blendabilities, and I like the scoring detail with the partial lines as you've done it. That SU sentiment set is pretty awesome too. TFS & Hugs

What a beautiful Thanksgiving card. the flowers looks gorgeous and I like that texture with the scored lines. Thanks so much for playing along with ASM this week!

Sanna said...

such a pretty card!

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This is such a striking card! I love how you used energetic colors, yet the image itself is so soft and lovely. The combination makes for a perfect card. It has a traditional Fall feel, yet it is so fresh and modern. I adore the little details like the embossed lines above the sentiment. Gorgeous "Give Thanks" script, too. Thank you so much for sharing this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog! I definitely think coloring with alcohol markers fills the bill of our challenge theme!
