Friends 24-7 MDS Card

Here's the first card I made using MDS on my new computer.  I love the difference in time my new computer takes!  My old computer would have taken 2 days to make this, the new computer made it in less than 2 hours! 
I love, too, that you can make things with retired items - they never retire in MDS!  
I used Black/White/and Melon Mambo for my color combo.  For the background  paper I used the Night and Day Specialty paper as well as the Melon Mambo DSP.  I also used the journaling piece from the Write Stuff digital pack.  The stamp set used was Friends 24-7.

Perfect page for a picnic!

Here is a page I made for the summer - watermelon season is coming soon and I bought a few darling little outfits with watermelons on them to wear over the summer.  So, here is a page that will match that green/pink/red color scheme in her outfit. You'll notice the word enjoy is from the soon to be retired stamp set, Enjoy Every Moment.  I've gotten much use out of that stamp set!   
On this side of the page, I decided to make a little weaved piece for a picnic blanket.  I just thought it would add the perfect summer touch to this page, plus I've been wanting to try paper weaving on something other than a 4th or 5th grade art project!  Remember those?  They are much more fun on scrapbook pages!

I think my computer is okay now.....

Well, in case you noticed that I've been a little MIA lately, I must apologize.  Our computer got hacked, so for the last two or three weeks we have not been able to get into ANY program whatsoever!  I'm sure all of my blogging friends can identify with exactly how frustrating this has been!!! 

Anyway, here is a card I made a few weeks ago.  I made this card for my hubby.  I've had this set and think it is just adorable for making cards for those you love. 

I had just a few pages of the Walk in the Park DSP left, so I thought I'd put it to good use.  Plus, I decided to add black glitter to make sure that the images stood out against the mixture of patterns.  Plus, the black and gray make it a little bit less girly!
