oh how committed I am to my computer

My goodness, how you don't realize just how much you rely on something until it's not there. I had planned to post this today during my lunch hour, however my trusty computer at work decided it needed a day off! I felt like a dog chasing my tail all day long as I tried to figure out just what it needed & finally sent it home with the tech guy. UGG!!! but if all works out, I will have my little friend back tomorrow lol!
So here she is FINALLY!! The adorable Gabrielle from Kraftin Kimmies
I used colors I normally wouldn't (challenging myself to use the papers I hoard away in my stash pile) & I think I like how it turned out. At first I wasn't quite sure what I was thinking when I really looked at the papers I had pulled out. The blue DP Gabrielle is matted w/ is DCWV & the rest is all My Minds Eye. The sentiment is from this months set at The {Stamps} of Life. I love being a club member-it's great getting surprised with wonderful, fun stamps in the mailbox every month! The flowers are Prima, the pearls are from Michael's, & the twine is some I had in my sewing basket from days gone by. I colored Gabrielle w/ pencils. I was going for strawberry blond hair, not quite sure if I hit that one!
I am posting this to:

  1. Isn't it strange how we rely so heavily on something that drives us up the wall at times lol. Great card though with a pretty image and in beautiful colours. Thanks for joining us this over at Crafty Sentiments Designs.
