What Can I Say?

Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is having a great day, talked with my daughter, Kaylene, they were going fishing. Not going to tell Billy, he will be jealous. We will be going to work later today instead.

Was going to post this card yesterday, but had computer problems, I get so irritated when that happens, am not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to this fancy typewriter. Luckily was able to get in touch with my son-in-law, Tim, the computer whiz and he got things going once again, thank goodness, don't know what I would do, this is my therapy. Enough about all that here is my card for today.

My first attempt at a tri-shutter card, have seen them on every one's blogs and was in aah! Just had to sit down and really focus on what paper to use and stamps. The video tutorial I used was over at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts, there is also a tutorial with step by step instructions and video at SCS in the resource section. The card looks complicated, but was really easy, everyone needs to give this one a try.

There are so many things that you can do with this card, and anyone who receives it will be amazed. I was so pleased with my finished project that I couldn't wait to show it to Billy, his comment was "WOW", that was the reaction I was hoping for.

The small butterflies and scroll stamps are from K and Company, the large one is so old I don't know, sorry. The large scroll is from Inkadinkado. The oval is a classic scalloped oval from Spellbinder. Unfortunately my selection of sentiment stamps are very limited, so once again I turn to my computer.

The base of the card is card stock, and then I used pattern papers from Lasting Impressions, the packet has 3 sheets of 5 different patterns, it worked perfect for this project, as I have a real problem with patterned papers, it seems they never come together quite right. With one packet of paper I was able to make 9 cards, love it!

The butterflies were colored in with pencils, this was such a fun project, it is on my list to do again.

Time for me to get my mind around going to work.

Have a great crafting day.
