Major Computer Issues

I'm back! My computer today died last week. I've spent the past week running back and forth to Best Buy and talking to the guys at Geek Squad. My hard drive bit the dust, but they were able to install a new one. So that's the reason for no posts. No computer=no blogging. So sad!

But now I'm back up and running so I can show you what I've been working on. My grandmother is turning 90 this month and we're throwing her a huge party. My mom asked if I was interested in making the invitations and I jumped at the chance. I wanted to make sure that I made something classy and beautiful. I flipped through the Stampin' Up! catalog for inspiration and found my inspiration on page 13. I modeled my card off of that sample, but made changes to that it would go through the mail easier. Here's my card...
Stamps: A Rose is a Rose, Frames with a Flourish, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Ridinghood Red, Old Olive
Paper: Old Olive,Very Vanilla, gold, Bella Rose dp
Accessories: Ridinghood Red tafetta ribbon, square punches, dimentionals

Didn't it turn out gorgeous? My grandmother hasn't seen them yet, but I'm sure she's going to love them!

I took her wedding picture to Target and cropped out my grandfather (sorry, Grandpa!). Then I used my square punch to punch out only her head for the invitations. I think this personalizes it a lot more.

Thanks so much for looking today! Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Hi, Amy,

Glad to hear that your absence was due to computer issues! And yes, you do have the cutest blog on the block!

I know that your family will flip over the invites; they are really a gorgeous work of heart!
