A quote on "Courage"

I love that special quotes have become so popular.  Everyone uses them on Facebook, on t-shirts, notepads and picture frames.  Before computers changed our lives, I used to write them down on scraps of paper (I still find them in old purses).  Since then, I've always collected my favorites and would keep them in a folder on my computer - I accumulated hundreds that either made me laugh or touched my heart in one way or another.  I always thought, "that will make a great card".  I obviously didn't have a good quote about "backing up your computer" because I lost them all last January when my computer crashed.   Thank goodness for Verve and their beautiful quote stamp sets.  I love this one about courage.

Paper is Fancy Pants Honeysuckle.  Dies are Spellbinder & MFT.  Love the cordoroy brads from SU!

Cutting this short - off to watch Big Brother.  Rachel has got to go!!  =)

Oh, what a shame about losing your data!! I hope you have started a new quote file and have a backup external hard drive now.

Love your work. I hadn't seen the corduroy buttons yet. I don't think they put them in our catalogue over here, but we have so many lovely new things we really are spoiled for choice!

Carla, your card is so lovely, and will be such a blessing to the recipient.

Carla - oh what lovely tiered scallops on this card. I adore those corduroy buttons, the lace trim and that spiral flower in aqua glittering and winking at me. Your cards are top notch, my friend.

Hi Carla! I live in Kingston too, and have been searching for a long time to find someone in Kingston who like the same types of things that I do - including Big Brother (I can't believe I found someone else who likes big brother! And I'm glad it was Kalia who left!) Can we get together sometime?? My blog is Lindart.blogspot.com.

Another GORGEOUS card, Carla! Love the brown/blue combo and all the layers! (so much for getting Rachel off BB, eh? Looks like she could win now - bummer!)

Beautiful card Carla!!

... no I never get tired of hearing that ;-) ;-)

Yes the Holly Motifs a a very nice set, it's very versatile. You can use it with or without the Holly.

hugs, Elly

This is gorgeous, Carla! (I'm guessing you're disappointed with the outcome of BB.)
