It's Monday morning again and I've had a crazy busy week.  There was so much going on this past week that my head was spinning just keeping up - barely!!  I had been having so much trouble with my computer and it finally crashed.  Needless to say it will be in the shop for awhile and not even sure it will be worth fixing it.  So yesterday, we decided to buy a tablet - something a little more portable and then consider getting a desk top computer instead of a laptop.  The laptop that is in the shop has had three hard drives, and numerous problems.  All said and done we have probably put over 2000 dollars in that thing.  This technology we rely on can be so frustrating. I miss the simpler times of life when there was no computers, cellular phones and electronic games.  Geeesh...what would we do with ourselves?
So yesterday and today I have spent numerous hours just getting familiar with this tablet - so not fun!!  Just trying to remember ALL the passwords has been a mind boggling feat.  Imagine trying to get this card edited, watermarked, linked up and ready to go!!
So with that.. I want to share my card for Prickley Pear.  As usual, its shabby! Would you expect anything but??
Hey look!  No bow!!
If you would like to see more Prickley Pear inspiration, then go Here, and if you want to see what other fabulous products they have to offer, then go Here.
I hope you have enjoyed this card as much as I did making it!
Have a wonderful week!!


  1. Gorgeous card and colors, Rene. I know what you mean with computer issues. I'm not very computer savvy and recently had to figure out going from Windows Vista to Windows 8 to Windows 7.

  2. Beautiful card, Rene. Linda would be happy that there is no bow to tie.

  3. Sorry to hear of your computer woes, been there done that, yikes! The stress is unbelievable. But you took the trouble and let your self shine! Your card is stunning. The lace is perfect with the flower & you don't need a bow with all thee other pretty elements on your card. It's perfect as is! Just a drop of advise, get a desktop. I had my old computer for 11 years & only had to put $200 in it over those years. I bought another desktop two years ago & so far, so good. Just sayin'

  4. Oh I love this!! Such a soft sweet vintage card! Love the lace, flourishes and soft papers! So pretty!!!

  5. This is so pretty, gorgeous creation.
    Happy crafting
