Happy Thursday everyone! What a fun day it was yesterday with the Our Daily Bread Designs blog hop. My dt sisters did an amazing job with all of their awesome creations!!! Thanks to all of you who stopped by and left me such awesome comments.

My computer time is very limited since I am not using my own computer due to no internet access to my computer. I miss just being able to click online and do what I need to do. I have spent numerous hours on the phone with tech support (most times the representatives are from India and barely speak English) trying to diagnose the problem and fix it. On Tuesday, I was on the phone for 5 hours with one tech! Yikes! No one can figure out what is not working. Very frustrating. I am not going to just go out and buy a new computer when this one is only a year old and I don't have the money to just throw out.
To offset the string of unfortunate happenings as of late, I was blessed with a lot of exciting blog candy wins. I did not win one but 3 different blog candies yesterday!!! Yikes! That never happens. I won the Clear Dollar Stamps from the Women to Women Blog (Thanks Diane!), a $25 gift certificate from Shirley to Impression-Obsession (Thanks Shirley!), and a gorgeous selection of candy from Michelle at Daydreams by Michelle (Thanks Michelle!!)

Anywho....Today is the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge! Lori sent us this image as our inspiration from :
I used the roses in the picture as my inspiration using a gorgeous rose stamp I have in my collection from Stamps Happen(Carolyn Shores Wright). Since the background behind the roses is a clean white, I decided to keep my background clean and white also adding texture like the medallions in the inspiration piece.
Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stamps Happen - EnglishRose, SU Only Ovals
Accessories: scalloped oval punch, mega curved spellbinders, prisma color pencils and gamsol, Swiss dots folder, Blue sheer ribbon from Ribbon Bowtique
I hope you enjoyed my inspirational card and that you too are inspired to join in this challenge. If you do create a project with this inspiration, please link a direct link to Lori's blog here. Should you upload to SC please use the keyword DDIC7. For more awesome inspiration and delicious eye candy visit my dt sisters: Keri, Julie, Chat, Angela, and Lori.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! Today I prepare to leave for vacation. We leave tomorrow! Woohoo!! I hope where we are going somewhere where it is NOT raining. LOL!! (We have had rain everyday for over 2 weeks and over 20 inches!!! I have never seen this much rain in this amount of time.) I have scheduled a few posts for while I am gone and I will still be here in the a.m., tomorrow, to upload another creation I wanted to share with you. I will be back from vacation on July 13. Maybe I can then get my computer issues fixed as well.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments and all the eye candy on your blogs. You are all such an inspiration! May your day be full of sunshine!!!
