Perhaps this is terrible timing, with the recent H1N1 outbreak in turkeys…but what can you do?
I had a day off today to attend some appointments, and was looking forward to a day of stamping. However, Fate had another plan for me today.
I went to (finally!) reinstall my printer today, and as I plugged the USB cable in, my mouse and keyboard ceased to function. This happened last week, for 3 days, but I plugged in my work keyboard and a spare mouse. A few days rest for the entire computer and they were back up and running. Not the case today. After muttering a few choice words in Italian, I hopped in the car and bought a new keyboard and mouse. I went wireless again, which goes against a lot of market research, but I’m hopelessly addicted to my Microsoft keyboard functions built into the keyboard…programmable favourite buttons, media player controls, one touch email… and a corded keyboard is hard to find these days!
So needless to say, the time I wanted to spend stamping, was spent finding, purchasing, and installing my new keyboard. It’s a split keyboard, so the jury is still out on if I’ll be able to adapt or not.
I did manage to get some stamping done and catch up on using the Wild Flower Kids Stamps Autumn Splendour digital release.
I just loved this little turkey so much, I printed him in two sizes on SU Very Vanilla Cardstock and coloured him with my prisma pencils and some Gamsol I got from Tonya at Stamp Happens (I love! that applicator bottle!)
I’m on the Kraft cardstock bandwagon again, and kept this card really simple. I used my Score-Pal to make the frame, and then added my cut out image to the centre, some SU Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon,…eh voila!
For my second card, I used a favourite layout…I think it may have come from the Clean and Simple blog, but I’m really not sure. I will be using this layout again and again!
This little turkey is printed out a bit smaller than my card #1, but I used the same colours and the same effect; cutting out the body on a second image and popping up on dimensionals. The sentiment is also from the Autumn Splendour set, and perfect for Thanksgiving, but can be used for every day life too!
I apologize if the pictures are a bit dark…I’ve misplaced all the registration info for PS Elements and can’t find the Serial Number…so I’m stuck using Picassa until I figure out a backup plan.
Ciao for now,
