CPS Anniversary

First off, can I say I officially have a love/hate relationship going on with my computer!!!!!
My computer decided to have a mini meltdown last Tuesday.  As we were trying to repair it, it seemed that the better answer was to get a new computer since mine was very old and a very old computer doesn't really always want to work all that well.  SOOOOOO, since then, I have been on the journey of getting a new one and getting it up and running and this is has just NOT been a fun experience. I have too many programs that I need the software to get working again and some were purchased online and they are out of date.  I can really say that at this point I am not happy!  Hopefully that will change.

Anyway, this week marks an anniversary for Card Positioning Systems sketch blog. Thankfully, this is a good thing and it has been such a fun adverture for me. 

We were to pick a sketch from the past for our project.  I picked this one, sketch #166


I also got to work with a set of stamps from Gina K.  If you check out CPS all during the anniversary celebration wich runs through February 18th.  Each team member played with a different sponsor so you will be seeing lots of great stuff and there will also be lots of prizes to win.
I love this little bunch of flowers, so this was fun to work with and to use with this sketch.

Of course, I used my Copic markers for the coloring and I also used probably my newest favorite product, Liquid Pearls by Ranger.  The patterned paper is Little Yellow Bicycle. The label shape is cut wiht a Spellbinders Nestabilities.  My circle cut out was done with the Kreaxions circle cutter which is so the perfect tool for this sketch.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Computer problems are no fun at all, but getting a new computer is. LOL! :) I hope the card making came after the meltdown so you were able to get a bit of creative therapy in. It's beautiful! You always have the perfect touch on your cards. :)

Ugh! Computer problems are no fun at ALL!! Had a similar experience myself about a year ago. So glad you had some "craft therapy" with this pretty card! I love the gems in the centers of the flowers.
