Vellum and Pictures, Pictures, Pictures!

Okay, we got a new computer last week woo hoo! So several days ago I figured out how to up load my pictures from my camera (something I don't know how to do on our old one). Yesterday I wanted to post on my blog but I couldn't find where the pictures were on the computer, isn't that pathetic! Well last night after I got home from teaching my stamp class, my DH found where they were and showed my how to access them, I don't know what I would do without him. So now I can post pictures of my cards which look so much better than scanning them. Now on to the card...
This is on of the cards we made in my class last night and it is also for the stamp simply challenge over at No Time To Stamp.
1. Stamp flowers (Great Impressions) two times on a confetti panel with lettuce then stamp again in the middle with wild plum (Adirondack)
2. Punch the corners with a ticket punch (SU) and sponge the edges with lettuce. Layer onto bright pink panel.
3. Stamp a vellum panel with leaves (Great Impressions) using white Brilliance. Glue to a turquoise card using vellum tape (Glue Dots) and mount stamped image in the center.
4. Stamp a vellum strip with "heartfelt" (Hero Arts) with black Brilliance, tear the edges and tape over the flowers.
5. Add circle stickers.


Now for family photos! Here is my wonderful husband (our 21 year anniversary is the end of this month) with our daughter Melanie and son Greg when we were at the air show last month.

Here is our Girl Scout Troop when we placed flags on veterans graves on Memorial day.


My daughters birthday was last month and she had a slumber party, here she is with a couple of her friends. Melanie is in the middle.



Finally, this is my Mom and Greg (isn't he cute!), we went to an Easter egg hunt and breakfast where my Mom lives. Can you believe these pictures were in my camera so long!
Have a wonderful weekend.

I'm glad you found your pics and learned how to upload them into your new computer -- that's a biggie! ;)

Your card is beautiful, Jamie! I love the colors, the bling, and the softness that the vellum adds. I never remember to use vellum, and I love it (but hate having to deal with how to adhere it -lol)...just may have to bring that out and play a little with it.

Thanks for sharing your family pics -- everyone looks so happy!
