A Beautiful Mojo & Stamp New England CT deadline!

I made this card for the color challenge on Split Coast and used the mojoMonday sketch for the design but turned it on it's side to accomodate my sentiment which is from Unity Stamps. I finally caved and bought the Martha Stewart 3 butterfly punch and you can see the three of them fluttering on my card here! The edge on the sentiment panel is an EK success punch - diamond lace. I just punched it once in the center of the panel and it came out like this - kind of kool!!

What I time I had getting this card loaded - I took the picture and then when I went to download it onto my computer - the camera couldn't read the disk (this has happened several times over the last few weeks but it always read it again after fiddling with it a bit). But today - no go. Luckily, my DH just bought a new camera for himself - so I hastily loaded the software for it onto my computer - figured out how to take a picture with the camera - and got it loaded! phew - sometimes I just hate technology!! I don't want to have to learn how to use it - I just want it to do what I want it to do automatically - are you with me on this?!?!?

This is so pretty! Great colors! Sorry about your camera...do you use a cf and an sd card-or just attach the camera to the computer> If you are using a card you probably just need a new one. They can be corrupted.

Now only if I could get a techie on retainer...
