1, 2, 3 Create...

Hello Everyone!

I'm at least 'funcional' for a while. DD had an old IBM that she told me to try using while my machine is ka-put. It gets very hot very quick, so this will probably be very short.

It's another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes!

Olga Jewell is our hostess this week. She challenges us to: 1, 2, 3, Create! We are to use:

1 Acquired Paper Cupcakes Image, 2 Ribbons, and 3 buttons on our projects.

Since I couldn't participate last week, I used the image from last week's challenge, AND I used Kim's challenge of a non-traditional card, AND Olga's challenge for this week!

I was looking at the Scrap and Stamp Arts magazine last week, and saw this concept for a card. You cut about 2 5/8" of your card front to the fold line. The top half is then glued to the card back, and the bottom half swings open and shut. I thought it was a cute idea!





All coloring is done with colored pencils and LOMS. The DP is TAC's "More Mimi".

I apologize for the quality of the photos - the color is just awful on this screen, so I can't tell what it really looks like!

Hope all is well, and that you have a good weekend!!! Thanks for stopping by, and for being so patient with my down time! It will be at least a week before I have a machine again. We ordered DH a new laptop, and I'm to get his old one when the new one comes in.

Hugs to all!

What a fun interactive card Patti! The colors aren't that bad so you did well with your crazy screen.

Not to laugh at you, but I couldn't believe you said the machine gets really hot fast!!! We sure have come a long way haven't we?
Have a great week.

Sorry you are having computer problems Patty. Missed you last week. This is a really neat style card. I haven't seen it before. The coloring on our bunny cupcake is great. I really like how the inside of the card is finished.

I hope you get a "real" computer up and running WELL soon. I know how frustrating it is. I remember when computers first came out. I didn't want one. Can you imagine? Very cute card. That's the sweetest image!Love the green trim and embossed background.

This is a cute card idea! I love your image, and your use of the buttons and ribbon was perfect. I would have had trouble with this one, but you did it effortlessly! Best, Curt
