April Issue of Cards Magazine

The past 5 days have not gone well around my house! On Friday the tile was installed in my craft room so I had to wait until Saturday to put my furniture back.  When DH re-connected my computer,  it wouldn't boot up. 

No computer---no card making as far as I'm concerned!  I got the computer repaired and my Epson 3 in 1 printer just decided it was not going to work any longer.  The little Lexmark printer that I had available to use doesn't like cardstock.  So, it looks like I'll be shopping for a printer in the next few days too!

I'm tired, can't find my scrapping supplies easily, and my imagination has decided to go the way of the just quit working!

So, it's another card totally scraplifted from the April issue of Cards magazine!  LOL! 

The tag was printed by forcing the SU cardstock through my cheap azz Lexmark printer, the end was shaped using a MS punch, I stamped a button on the other end of the tag shape and threaded some cotton twine through it to make the bow. It's pop-dotted to stand up off the surface of the card.   The butterflies are also a MS punch.  A few dashes added with my gel pen and I was through.

I really like the concept of the card so it's one I'll duplicate using different colors of paper.

You are just too funny! I love the card and who cares if it's scraplifted. I think we all need a go-to card design and changing up the paper and embellies makes it your own, right?
Hope you have a better day and those darn electronics quit giving you grief.
