OMG! What a day!


It's so good to be back online. I don't know how I lived before the internet... LOL!

The day started with the alarm not going off.... because it wasn't on. (Don't want to go there.) But my first thought was, maybe there's no school. We were supposed to get 3-6 inches of snow. No such luck. Roads were horrible and I would never want to be a bus driver on days like this. DH and I got our multiply impaired son ready in 1/2 an hour (This is the 5th time this year so we know that team effort works. LOL) BUT... the bus was very late. And when she got here, the driver was on the hood trying to fix her wipers. I felt so badly for her. My dad has a driving job and doesn't understand why the schools were open.

Anyway.... I ended up going back to bed. I haven't been feeling very well and lots of things have been stressing me out. But my counselor called and I was able to get out of bed, take my meds, and make this card. That's when the Boot Drive on my computer went POOF. I don't even know what a boot drive is. I thought I lost everything. I learned that my stuff was on the hard drive. I thought it was all one thing. But hubby fixed it and ran off to work. I finally uploaded this card with a new updated version of photo software.... and wow! What a difference in the quality. It doesn't just brighten, it drops shadows.... in the pinpointed area!! So something good came out of it. But nothing on my To Do list got done... that makes 3 days in a row. (Sigh).

Now that I've rambled on and bored you, what do you think of the card I made?

Here are the deets:

Stamps: Marshmallow Mug - Impression Obsession, In the Spotlight - SU
Paper: close to cocoa, creamy caramel, white, pretty in pink & bashful blue, DSP
Accessories: Copic markers, eyelets, ribbon, brads, snow blossom punch, paper piercer, cocoa marker, dimensionals
Techniques: faux stitching


Thanks so much for visiting!
