Software found! The last card from Texas and a Freebie

Back in the spring, my computer crashed.  I had a backup - I back up x2 a week. But for some reason, my Photoshop Elements#10 was lost.  I had the original disk, as old as PE10 is, it is still legitimate.  But I couldn't find it - those things happen when you move cross country.  A few days ago while I was repacking I found it! But I couldn't remember how to use it - I had just started when I lost it the first time.  I really wanted to get on with making my own word art and collage type stamps.  So since I seemed to be stalled with PE, I downloaded Gimp. anyone feeling my pain?  I uninstalled gimp and forced myself to sit down and work with PE. What Little I knew came back - YaY!!

All my creative stuff is packed and ready for loading, no card making, cooking, stitching - Nada!

Here is my desk to prove it!  Word, water, todo list, a couple cards to write out and stamps to mail them.  A little bleak in the crafty sense.


I was very happy when PE started coming together for me;  Here is the image I put together,
you are welcome to copy and save for your card making:

I scrounged for scissors and found my kitchen shears were in a box not yet taped!  I wiggled 6 colored pencils out of my students supplies cabinet and a card base, a sheet of paper from a pad and a piece of black card stock.


I grabbed a little bottle of Elmer's glue for the card and to coat the butterflies:

Here it is, the last card from Texas,

This process and the card make me think of the old song, 'Little is much when God is in it'.   A couple more days and we hit the road, I am hoping to get a few more of these collage stamps done to leave with you while I am on the road! If you like these types of freebies, leave a comment! Comments are very encouraging and it gives me an idea of what you all like.  
Thanks for stopping by!
