Huge "Getting Caught Up Post"

WOW...what a few days I have had, the last 2 days have felt like weeks!!

The first thing I should say is that I now understand the frustration of computer/internet issues as I have had enough lately to do me for years!! I have compassion i never had before for those of you who deal with this on a regular basis!!  The worst part was it was right in the middle of the Claudia and Co. June Release, a commitment to a friend (Betty) to be in her blog hop and a challenege at A Crafty Little Place...among other business that I need a computer with internet service for!!
I tell ya, if this continues much longer...I will need a psychiatrist or a padded cell!! LOL!!

So for now I have service and I have been a frazzled mess trying to get 
emails written, photos uploaded and delayed posts written!!

So hear goes...

Gotta Wear Shades
The Pink Elephant's Challenge this week is a fun and bright color challenge!!

Don't leave yet...I have more!! hee hee~!!

On Monday night, when the Claudia and Company Release Hop started I was preoccupied with making sure I had internet and that my post actually posted, that I never noticed my card using the new Princess Set from Claudia and Co. didn't post!! Ugh!!

So here it is:


Aren't these little accessories adorable!!
I can just see them as great background stamps too...perfect for
making our own custom designed Designer Paper!!
For this card...once again I used the super fun
Cosmo Cricket Designer Paper from the DeLovely can be purchased 
I LOVE it and I am not normally a bright colors type of girl!!

Ok...Sorry but i was never able to post my  
card for the hop.
I used Miller to...uhhh...what fun to color!! I love to color!!
Congrats Betty!!

I also used this woo hoo designer paper from the "Road Map" Collection by October Afternoon!
I purchased it from Claudia at Die Cuts R Us with a custom order...yep, Claudia does custom orders too!! Just contact her...anything you need or want she will do her best to get it for you!!!

Computer issues are the worst. I hate when mine runs so slow... not often but when it does.... ugh! I love all your cards and colors your chose. My favorite is the Miller card with the crossword background paper. I can' wait to get my order from Simply Betty. I need to get my hands on Ella and the sentiments as well. tfs
