Good Morning Blogging Friends.   Well I must say I do not like the Windows 8.1, it is a learning curve that will take me months to learn. I got a virus, 2 days after purchases, something I have never happened. Every thing disappeared, all of my programs.  It took Dell 4 hours to fix, and yes it came from the "Explorer" and yes I am now on Firefox :). And yes it cost me an extra 200 dollars for a year subscription to fix "soft ware".  They were really great about it too, which made my problem a lot more easier to handle.:)

Well today's card is for ODB challenge, "Spring colors".

Things used:
Stamp ODB Easter Blessing
Paper: SU white, K&company water color Bouquet.
Other: spellbinders petite circles & scallops, stick pin I made with tiny glass beads and pearls.

I decided to make another one: which took me an half hour to find :)

Things I used:
Stamp: ODB Flower Border with Scripture collection2
Dies: Spellbinders label 18 & curves, cut out second time with different colors.

Well that is my adventure for today.  
Have a fabulously Blessed day.

Oh, Becky, it's always a joy to see one of your cards for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge, and I LOVE this beautiful card with the lily of the valley! Definitely reminds me of spring with the beautiful colors and your stick pin with pearls! So glad you've joined us once again this week, precious friend! Hugs!

So sorry to hear you had such problems with the download, I haven't switched myself even though I can get a free upgrade, maybe that is a good thing.
Your card is just lovely and like how you brought the colors to your border too, such a pretty touch!

Terry said...

With the coming of more beautiful, warm weather, these floral cards are perfect! They're so bright and pretty.

Lynn McAuley said...

I love these beautiful designs and wonderful scriptures, Becky!!

Awesome work!

Benzi said...

Oh no....I hate you got that virus. I am now using Firefox after learning of the Internet Explorer virus.

Your cards are so pretty. I love that beautiful stick pin in your first card and I adore the curved borders like you have in the second one.

jimlynn said...

Becky, both are lovely with the beautiful flowers, designs, and sentiments. So very pretty.
Uck on all the computer woes!!! Glad you have it all sorted out even if it did cost a bundle.

Tammy said...

I'm sorry you are off to a rough start with your new computer, how awful and frustrating! Both cards are beautiful as always!

Irish Cherokee said...

Both cards are exceptional. Love the image in the first one and the second one I love the verse.

I have had to deal with viruses several times. I have worked with computers for more than 20 years. It is no fun when you have a virus attack.

Double blessings.

Maxine D said...

Beautiful cards Becky - The stick pin on the first is beautiful, and I love the touch of lavender on the second.
Sorry to hear of your computer woes - thankfully I have never had a major viral attack!!

Betty Wright said...

Both are beautiful, Becky! One of my favorite scriptures!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Pretty cards -- that firs tone is just awesome!

I am not hearing good things at all about 8 -- I'll stick with what I have :) Your problems sound like it was a nightmare - computers are just suppose to work, right? Just like a car show just drive- LOL

Two beautiful, elegant cards.

Olga said...

gorgeous cards, love the blue on the first one........I have 8, it takes some getting use to, I'm still learning stuff. Good Luck!

Becky said...

Love both cards....your designs are so inspiring! So far I'm okay with IE but am thinking of using Google Chrome. Absolutely hate Windows 8 though!!!

Pat (mspfd) said...

Oh Becky, I am so sorry to hear about your computer woes! I don't think anything can be more frustrating. I am glad you got everything straightened out and are now about to post your gorgeous creations. Both of your cards are outstanding!

Jani Lewis said...

Too bad about your struggles with the computer. Sometimes they can hinder us more than they help us. LOL
The cards are lovely though. Very cheerful in their Spring colors.

Viv said...

Two beautiful cards Becky. Oh dear I hope all your computer problems are fixed now. I have Firefox too, I hated Explorer, not had any problems so far touch wood.My neighbour has a new laptop and Windows 8, she is 75 and not easy for her. She asked them to put her old desktop back ( easy to do apparantly) and finds it easy now. :) Viv xx

Caroline D. said...

Happy May 1st! Your cards are beautiful and spring-like! (Even my hubby doesn't care for Windows8 and he's an IT manager.) Hopefully the computer will behave now!

Tracy said...

Oh boy, I'll sure keep that in mind about 8. So sorry it turned into such a headache for you. Your cards are lovely. Pretty florals and I really like the decorative border on the second card. Hugs!

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

Oh Becky, I hear you on the windows 8!! I have had mine since Christmas and still struggle to find the ins and outs. Sorry for all you have gone through

Your cards are both gorgeous. The first with the beautiful aqua flowers is so springy and bright. The second uses a treasured verse framed by beautiful flowers. Beautiful Becky!! Thanks for joining us at ODBD my friend!

Joan Ervin said...

I am so sorry about all your computer problems, Becky...hopefully everything will be ok from now on!!!! Your cards are sooo pretty...the Lily of the Valley is such a beautiful flower and I love the verse on the second one!!!!

Sue said...

Ouch on the computer problems, great when they work, not so great when you have problems.

Beautiful card, can't wait for the Lily of the valley to bloom. Everything is late this year because of the very cold temps. Things are starting to green up now though.


JD/ Jill said...

Both your cards are so lovely...Sorry about your computer woes...(sadly, we have ALL been there haven't we? Yikdes...)

Thank you for the birthday wishes...and would you believe it is NOT over yet...I have been invited for THREE more birthday lunches in the future...Am I a fortunate lady or what?

Carol L said...

Your card is just lovely and hints of spring weather - which we're all going to eventually enjoy :) Sorry about the Win8 issues - that can make computer time very stressful!

Colette said...

Two gorgeous cards Becky, I love the lily of the valley image and pretty stick pin and of course the lilac and blue on the second as it's my all time favourite colour combo.

Oh, problems are never fun and I have fits over auto updates that always seem to mess something up. I sometimes have to 'hunt' for digi downloads and it drives me crazy. Love your beautiful cards and it is nice to know that the Lord is in control of all things!
