"Tech Talk" Blog Hop

My first card using Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, "Tech Talk" was done as an easel card. I combined my favorite things with this card... purple, teal AND computers!! This set just blew me away when I first saw it!!! I am a HUGE techie/geek/gadget freak! LOL Everyone who knows me... knows I always have the latest and greatest stuff I can get my hands on! LOL I snagged my inspiration for this card from Donna Baker. She had sent me a card similar to this but I changed it up just a bit. The easel is not one I've ever done before so having her card in my hands for measurements and such made this so much easier to do! I love it!! Now... look what happens when you flip it up and open. TaDah! I cut the screen from the keyboard and used my Pop Dots to raise it up a bit on my base card thereby giving the "easel" a place to sit. I LOVE this design... thank you Donna!! I used my Koh-i-Noor pencils added a tiny clip and a heart because I was giving ot to someone special. *smile* My wonderful cheerful DP is from the Bright Summer Grunge Digital Paper Pack by Emily Giovanni. How perfect it goes with Gina K's new Pure Luxury Ocean Mist Now the inside... Pretty simple geek talk, if you ask me. Hee Hee. For more inspiration with Tech Talk tonight, check out these links:
