Friends with Flair!

It's Friday! Once again I decided to play along with all the creative people over on the Unity Stamp Company blog!
Here is the card I made today...along with a close-up!  The butterfly came in my grab bag of goodies that I won for last week's Friends with Flair!  The greeting is enjoy. explore. believe.
I also included a quick & simple card I made the other day using Unity's {just a little...clicky} background stamp & a greeting from {insta-live, love, dream}.
I hope you're enjoying my creations as much as I am enjoying making them! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Something Different: Friends with Flair

Just wanted to try something a little different today & decided to jump into Friends with Flair over at the Unity blog.
I'm still on my phone instead of the computer... which makes posting a bit of a challenge but I really wanted to share so... you gotta do what you gotta do, right!?!
I used a stamp set I just got from Unity Stamps, along with Stampin' Up!'s amazing cardstock & Blendabilities...if you have questions about any of the products I used, just ask!
Here is what I created this evening...I hope you enjoy! (& I hope this works too!)

Still no computer...really...

Have you ever tried to do any work on a computer set to factory settings with no programs installed or software updated? I can tell you it's no picnic! Every time I try to do the simplest thing it wants to install an update or do something else that keeps me from doing what I need to do. I haven't had time to sit & deal with that yet.
While I can write short posts on my phone, I'm never sure what to say. (The stuff I want to share involves more time to write & sharing things that I just can't access from my phone.) I'm still working on getting my computer back up & running...although I haven't had much time for that this week. I'm participating in 3 swaps using products from the upcoming Holiday Catalog & they are scheduled to go in the mail tomorrow...which means when I'm no longer stuck on the couch nursing my son, I'll be spending every free minute I can find today trying to get them done! I can't wait to share them with you once I can. (In the meantime I will try to share the cards I got back from the last swap I participated in... but not until I get these in the mail!)

I hope you are all having a great weekend! It's been a flurry of activity here...with some new experiences too! I love weekends!

Have a crafty week...time to get started on Halloween stuff soon too!

Technical difficulties...

Due to many technical issues, I had to reset my computer to factory settings. Of course, this couldn't go as easy as I would have liked...& it's taking way longer to get everything back to some sort of normal. (When I say 'normal', I really mean 'useable'...) So... while I work on getting things to a point where I can actually use the computer & get back to posting, I will try to update you from my phone when I can.

I hope everyone had a great weekend & that you're going to make this week AWESOME!

Spencer got to go to the Magic Kingdom for the 1st time last Wednesday!
We watched the Festival of Fantasy Parade, took a few pics & headed back home.  It was extremely HOT for me & the kids...which makes it difficult to tolerate some of the more aggressive guests in the parks.  We had a good time though...even if we didn't stay long!
It was a trip I am proud of...since I usually just opt to stay home with the kids.
Here are a few quick pages I made using MDS to show our adventure...

 I hope you enjoyed these super-simple pages!  I love MDS for this complicated scrapbooking necessary & I can just print them out when I'm ready to put them in a book!

Have a great rest of this Monday & I will see you all again later this week!

Please show some is Saffron's 2nd Birthday!
