Penny Black Saturday Challenge #49

Hi Everyone;
Sorry for not visiting your blogs much this week as I have been having some computer problems. I think they are cleared up now, so I hope to do some blog stalking tonight.

I made this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge #49. The challenge this week is a recipe= 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 brad/charm.

I am also able to use this card for the One Stop Craft Challenge, which is "Pink and Brown" and A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #52 which is "Celebration".....I'm getting pretty good at this, eh!!



The images are from Penny Black.
I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I used my nesties for the frame and EK Success border punches. The papers are from a DCWV paper stack. The flowers are punched and layered. I also used some stickles.

I hope you like it...

If you care to read on, I have some info on my computer issues.
I am going to try to explain what happened as I see that a few others are having problems too. My pc had been going slower and slower over the last few days. The other day when I clicked on a few of my favorite blogs it kept trying to load and then a sign would come up and say "operation aborted". So because I am soooo computer challenged I went off with my tower to my computer dude. I use microsoft windows and from what I understand when microsoft automatically updated to series 3
(I think that is what it is called) it confilcted with blogger and is having a hard time loading programs. So he downloaded Fire Fox and I could hardly believe how fast it is going now. It also seemed to clear up a multitude of problems. I am hoping this is what was wrong, as my computer crashed a year or so ago and I thought maybe it was happening again. I have my fingers crossed, I would hate to lose everything again!!

Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by...

Oh, gosh, Karen....that's what's been happening with me when I've been trying to read blogs!! I get that same message! I use Firefox for everything....except I have all my blog feeds on IE & haven't taken the time to figure out how to move them.....so I still use IE for blog hopping. I was getting so frustrated...I thought it was my computer. Thanks for sharing that info!!

Love your card....cute image & your papers are gorgeous!
