First Cards Uploaded On My New Computer

This afternoon has been spent getting software installed and data restored onto my new computer.  The computer I've been using is at least five years old and had become so slow that I was pulling my hair out waiting for things to load!

These are cards that I made yesterday while I was "computerless".  Fred came back to check on what I was doing and teased me about having to make cards "by hand" since I couldn't use my Design Studio to lay them out.  Each of these were inspired by cards in an embellishment magazine that I had on hand.

 The flowers are all made with SU punches and Cuttlebug embossing folders.
 The small flowers are SU stamps and the stem is an old stamp I've had for some time.  The papers are from SU
I used some Studio G alphabet stamps to do "dreams" and the other letters were done with some Martha Stewart stamps. 
The word "wish" is made from letters cut out from some
Tim Holtz paper.  I just tore the edges of the paper and inked it with Chestnut Roan ink.

Hi Linda. Glad you got a faster computer. I really like the first card, I would love to know how you did this.

Vickie--I posted some instructions. You know it can't be too hard or I wouldn't have been able to figure it out on my own! LOL!
