Field Flowers Take Three

It is the end of the week, I just can not believe how fast time is zooming  by. Yesterday my family accompanied me to the city for the weekly grocery shopping for my husbands restaurant. My grandson is getting bigger and we did not use the car seat, boy what a difference that made in comfort in the back seat.

They decided to finally get a new computer. They have needed one for a long time. It is hard to decided which one to get. They gave me a bit of a hard time because I am always purchasing electronic gadgets and do not seem to have a hard time to make up my mind. What they don't know is the hours I spent on line doing what they did in person. Teehee So when I walk into the store I know what I am getting without all the decision making to do.

Well here is my card for today, although I am not thrilled with the colors it still is a great card. They other day somewhere I saw a centre step type card but it was done on the 5 1/2 side rather than the 4 1/4 side. I could not find any directions for cutting anywhere so I just improvised. I cut my slits from 1 to 5 1/2 on each side and then scored at 1, 2, 4 1/2 and 5 1/4. That worked for me but I don't know if that is how anyone else would  do it.

I could not decided on what DSP to put on the rest of the card so I did not put any. Instead I chose to emboss a small design across the bottom and add some ribbon. I may change the color of the ribbon to yellow before I sell this card and see if it makes it pop a bit more. In real life it looks pretty nice but a little dull here, must be the photographer LOL.

See you next week, have a great weekend.
