Just because{ish}

I think I'm obsessed with using {ish} at the end of my titles.  It makes things vague and that's how my life is feeling right now...not really in a depressing way, just vague{ish}.  You know.  Blah{ish}.  I'm sure you get the picture...{ish}.  ;)

So the title means that, yeah, this post is kinda just because but also as a way to whine.  MY LAPTOP IS STILL MIA.  IT HAS BEEN A WEEK IN THE SHOP AND LONGER BEING DEAD!  WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG?!  WHY CAN'T THEY RUSH THE PART?!  WHY?!  WHY?!  Okay, I'm done.  Thanks for bearing with me! ;)

So anyway, yes.  My laptop is still dead.  AND, this post, by the end, will have taken the better part of an hour to write and post because my desk top is not.  Yes, that's it.  It's just NOT{ish}. ;)  But I do have a card to share with you and I'm rather excited about it because it's the first card where I've ever used Liquid Pearls as an accent!!!

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~

(by the lovely Julia Stainton)
(I've opted to use colors only...not Halloween themed)

(I've used markers to color in my image)

I used a brand spankin' new stamp set from Cloud 9 Designs.  Yes.  Another brand spankin' new stamp set.  It's call retail therapy, folks, and it's exceedingly been needed!  I colored in the image with Stampin' Up! markers and the rest of the supplies used were from SU! as well! Except the Liquid Pearls by Ranger.  They're in the middle of the flowers, you see them?  Anyway, there you have it!

In other news{ish}, I will be attending the bi-annual craft supply garage sale at the store I told you about back in April.  Stay tuned to see what amazing{ish} deals I DH is going with me to make sure I don't spend all our cash, lol!  I'll be going tomorrow (the first day) and then next Friday for the 1/2 price day!!!  Oh, the fun I shall have spending money on glorious craft items! ;)  Thanks for stopping by--if you've read all of this (and understood{ish} any of it), you are a saint!  Happy stamping! :)

Black can be so dramatic, but you've balanced it so well with the earthly colors and the softness from the circles. Great card!
