Painted Blooms

This is a card I made earlier in the week and had not posted. I used pre-colored digital images from the Beccy's Place Painted Blooms set which I got on sale. I love this set. And, I used Altenew Brushed Grid Washi tape for the background. This is really wide tape. Also the enamel dots are from Altenew.



The card stock used for this card is all from Gina K. Designs. The big bold Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Sweet 'n Sassy Bold Birthdays set. I have used this set of bold birthday greetings so much and am very pleased with and happy to have it in my stash. 

Here is a photo of the inside of the card and as you can see I tied the inside to the outside by adding a little bouquet of flowers to the saying which are also from the same digital set from Beccy's Place.



I am going to enter this in Jan's Digital March Challenge which is Anything Goes.

Well I dinked around with my computer and changed to Edge and I seem to be able to get things to work again. I think it was a glitch with Google Chrome but it seemed cleaning out my cache helped perhaps too. So far today things are fine. And, I could not get my camera to upload photos but today I worked on that problem and I found by shutting down the computer and restarting it seemed to read my camera again too. So I am quite a bit happier and thank the Lord for helping me guess as to what was wrong as it was just guesses on how to fix it without taking it to a computer expert. 

I also no longer have the wound vac on and no bandage either, I have one more wound care appointment to make sure things are still going okay and as far as I can tell things are. So that was a blessing too. Also we need to get our second shot for Covid and later in the month I have a check up with my regular doctor. Then as far as I know there is nothing until June when I see the oncologist. So less running to doctors etc. will be a great thing. I hope your weekend is off to a good start as well. Take care everyone and thanks for visiting.

God bless, Verna

The washi makes the colors pop. Could be Christmas colors but reads very spring here. Love the layers. Congrats on the vac removal. Hope hubby is doing as well. And very cool your guessing worked. Sometimes if I just walk away for a day things get better on their own.

That washi tape is awesome and made a great background. The flower is lovely and I like the font on the birthday sentiment. Sometimes when all else fails, I shut down the computer and start it up again and things are fixed. Every time I update something changes and I have to relearn. I'm happy to hear the wound vac is gone and it sounds like you have mended. That's wonderful news.
