What A Week!
Good morning! What a week this has been. I was checking emails when all of a sudden the little ball just kept rolling and rolling. It happens occasionally so I didn't think much of it but did a force quit. When I restarted it, all I got were question marks. Not a good sign :( I took it to the Apple Store and found that my hard drive had crashed. I have had Macs forever and never had had a problem and my computer is not even two years old. Well, I have learned my lesson - the hard way. Why do humans always have to learn the hard way? Anyway I had to buy a new hard drive and I got a new cord so I can back up with my external hard drive that I had but needed a new cord to work with this computer. I lost everything I had. So no pictures, no files, nothing. I am starting from scratch. So I uploaded one lonely card that I made and I will use it today.
On the brighter side, we went to the Omaha Community Playhouse last night to see Chicago. I actually liked it better than the movie and I loved the movie! We had a great time. Our Playhouse was founded by Henry Fonda and they do a wonderful job there. We have others around but this one is just outstanding. They have traveling caravans for A Christmas Carol and they tour all over the country.
So now on to my card. It is a Lili of the Valley image called A Christmas Dance that my friend Eulanda sent to me. I colored her with my Copic markers using the colors Bev Rochester used on hers. I then punched 2 snowflakes out and ran them through my Xyron and then glittered them up and put them one on top of another, popped a button on top and put it on my card. The paper is from my stash and I think it is from Bo Bunny. I also punched a strip of red to go down the center. Oh and I glittered the fur she is wearing too.
Until next time... Happy Trails to you
