So, On Sunday, late afternoon, the computer decided to be an a-hole and not work...again. I wanted to post these 2 cards I made but I couldn't so I informed you all that I may or may not be able to work this Black Swan (see the stupid movie) due to Windows 10 or as I like to call it-the devil.
Last night, lo and behold it was working! I downloaded the pictures and I wanted to "fix" them up-the quick retouch and that is when the computer laughed devilishly, toying with me like I was some mouse until finally it just went all blue screen on me. Obviously Windows 10 and the picture retouching don't like each other so I apologize for the not so nice looking pictures.
Alcohol inks, various stamps, prisma colour pencils, die cut, sizzex machine, crackle paint (yup didn't work), distress ink, cardstock, ribbon.

OK, so a new Battle of the Bands (At Stephen T. McCarthy' Blog) is now on but this is from the last battle. I love listening to all the battles because I am learning so much but I had the bright (cue dim bulb) idea of being inspired by one of the songs. Janie Junebug at Women:We Will Overcome, had Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" as her battle challenge and that was my choice. I just truly believe in...believing no matter what! Sometimes that is all we have to go on plus faith- they almost go hand in hand. I love my Da Vinci Gal and she looks a bit lonely as she gazes down and she will not stop believing whether it be love or whatever. Now I bought this new "paint" which is a crackle paint that you can place on with a foam brush which I did. After 10 or so, one is supposed to see it crackle...well it didn't happen! I have no idea what I did wrong so if anyone can help me, please do:) At this point I need all the help I can get.
Cardstock, border stamp, bird stamp. Gold die ink and god embossing powder. Burgundy and purple die ink and clear embossing powder for the birds (it really isn't for the birds-it really works well:). markers, water and glitter:)

So I missed the Color Q Challenge because of my schizo windows 10 computer (OK I have bitched a lot about this:)) but I still think this works as a card for almost anything whether it be a birthday, anniversary or whatever. I used watercolour cardstock so I could use my markers to colour them. I am having a brain-melt at the moment because I can't recall the name of my markers which I love and use often. I added some glitter to the white border and pieced all of it together. All my stamps, glitter, markers are way over 6 months old-I keep things forever.
Tomorrow my hubby and I will celebrate our 9 year anniversary when we first met. Since I am working, we won't celebrate until Saturday with a nice dinner and a movie. I can't believe how fast time flies.
