Both of these are so pretty Linda. That flower in the first one is so gorgeous.

Olga said...

Bummer! I would die without my computer. Hang in there, love all your cards GF! Snowing here, how about up your way?

Jennie said...

Oh Linda...what a bummer!!! I would think with this snow they should be rushing along the new laptop for you..just saying :o) Your cards are beautiful and great colors, embossing and designs gf!

Diana Queen said...

Linda...I feel your computer pain! I had to buy a new one this month...eek...right at Christmas time. But I'm addicted so had to have one!

Both cards are beautiful! I'm especially drawn to the poinsettia the paper pieced poinsettia on the crisp white background...very elegant!
Hope you have a wonderful holiday. Big hugs to you sweet lady!!

Beautiful cards! I love the poinsettias and love the gold shimmeriness on your 2nd card. I think it would kill me to just do my blogging on my lunch hour! LOL Stay strong!

Theresa said...

Lovely cards...glad you find the time to make ...sorry about that puter...what bad timing. Love your background...have a good weekend. Wouldn't it be nice if you could rent a computer? Might be a business enterprise to explore.

These are fabulous!!! I am so impressed with these, may be casing them :-)
don't worry, the new here will be here soon and a computer will hopefully follow shortly after that.
On a side note, not sure if this would help you at all, but If you use an iphone or other phone that takes photos and can email them, then you can set up blogger to do your posts from you phone via email.....

Bummer about your computer, do your libraries have them available?
What a lovely couple of cards, that poinsettia is so elegant
