Last night as I was watching American Idol, our local channel had a commercial that talked about technology and how it's a love/hate relationship, and that yesterday was National Battery Day (which reminds me, I need to buy some rechargeable 9 volts for the guitar at church!). Anyway, I thought that was so weird! National Battery Day? I am sure you all celebrated that in a big way!
I suppose it's true that we love technology when it works and hate it when it doesn't. My computer hard drive crashed last Saturday night and I have been without my computer, files, pictures, etc. since then. My husband has been working to try to get everything back up and running, but there is always something that doesn't work with no explanation as to why not. "It was working a minute ago!"
Well, I hope today is the day, because as I was loading this picture, I noticed how much I miss my watermarks! They are all on the OTHER computer. I suppose that is a huge reminder to BACK UP everything on a flash drive so I have it saved. I always have the best intentions about that, but never do it! (Note to self: 9 volts, BIG flash drive, Diet Coke........good start to a WalMart list....)
Anyway, here is my card for today's Ways To Use It Challenge 206: Stripes. I had just bought this gorgeous designer paper at Hobby Lobby last week and was looking for something to use it for. Stripes!! All of the paper in my card is by SEI - from the Chocolat collection (love that movie, too!). The stamp set is a new one this season from Stampin' Up! called Three Little Words. It is a great set, as there are several "three little word" sentiments.
Oh yeah -- I was really happy with the results last night on Idol, because all three I chose were chosen to stay and made the Top 12!! (Poor Tatiana......sheesh!)
Thanks for coming by for a visit!
