Get Well Card for WH and others

OH bother! It looks like my brand new computer is acting funny. Luckily this one is insured! And I made sure I took out extra insurance on it. This time it is less than 2 months old. I will definitely have to make this my last HP. I had one for 5 years, and if it wasn't for that one, I would once again have NOTHING! :(

You just would not believe how much trouble I had posting this card! For some reason I was totally unable to sign into my account. It took me a very long time to gain access, and lots of frustration. But finally!!!

Quote computer generated (the Bible- Thanks Bethann, do you remember giving me this?)

This card was double printed, cut out and popped up from very old Printshop software. I was unable to use my current Printmaster software. It was for a co-workers 25th anniversary on the job. Everyone liked it anyway. We are always our own toughest critics. The patch in the background is a copy of our Unit patch.

This is a baby card for my niece who had a baby earlier this year and I just got around to sending her a card and gift. Yes, she actually named the baby "Hapi". (go figure?...)

This card is for our co-worker who has been over in Iraq for 10 months. We wanted to send her some cheery wishes to make her smile, and let her know we are thinking of her.

This card was cased from "Card" magazine-Vol4 issue8, August 2009, pg 53, card by Michelle Spinas. I know you are supposed to change at least 3 things when you CASE a card. I changed the butterfly -I have two different shapes. Put the sentiment at the bottom (hers was a "Missing You" sentiment higher up on the card). Left off the rhinestones. Used a different cuttlebug folder. Changed the colors of the buttlerflys, and the card base. Last but not least, I changed the card size.
