Get Well Boo Boo..... Long Post (WARNING)

Hello & Happy Monday to ya! I hope you
all had a FANTASTIC weekend!  I'm still enjoying
some time with my son - we are helping him get everything
situated before he leaves to his Duty Station - Deciding what
he should take with him & what he should just get rid of....
We've even discussed him being shipped out by Christmas time -
I'll keep you guys informed on whats going on - your like family to me
and it's nice to chat with all of you! :)

My computer is also giving me trouble still - I had to re-download the
Silhouette Program and then re-install 37,000 files 
It takes FOREVER! - of course, it downloaded like 28,000 files
and I had to contact Silhouette - which they said I would have to download 
my library from their site too - which I did - But now I have 9,600 files
all in one place - which is NOT how it was saved! Soooo
Lucky me, I get to sort the 9,600 files and put them back in their
proper files I had for them - talk about a task! UGH!!!

Plus we have more family coming to visit before my son leaves
and a couple of small road trips to make - JUNE is a very busy month
for us - never has been before.. but that's okay -

I'm sorry I haven't been able to "POP" in to your blogs - it has been crazy
trying to fix my computer - I miss visiting ALL of you like crazy!
I had to use a computer just to log into facebook for a few minutes to
post my projects - I really dislike dealing with computer issues -
especially if I think I've lost a few files - yes - I think I have - UGH
But I will have to shake it off, and move forward with what I do have :)

Not that I've told you everything, I've got
a card to show you, that I made for my Monthly
Card Swap Group - the Theme this month was
Get Well and the Sketch they chose to use was
from Deconstructed Sketches #158

Super Sweet card Theresa....those eye "WOW"! Don't you hate computer issues...I have had my fair share lately too...I hope yours are sorted out soon. You sound so busy, I'm surprised you have time to craft. Enjoy your week!

Nana said...

One super duper cute card. I hope you are having a blast with your son. I know what you mean about Silhouette and the mess it can cause when you files get all messed up. I have tried several times to do the new update and they say I have too many files because timing out. So I just restore my computer to a earlier date. Not sure I will ever get to update to the cloud version.

Have a creative day.

Super card Theresa, I have missed you now I know why. WOW!! what a lot of files. Sounds like silhouette was pretty helpful.
Have a wonderful rest of your week.

First of all, this card is seriously adorable! I love all the great layers and fun prints you used. That little nurse mouse is just cute as can the eyes!

When my computer updated to Windows 10 my Silhouette did not want to play nicely at first. It took me several hours to get things working again and I'm still not 100 percent sure that it's all good. I hope you get your files in working order again..what a pain!

Karon said...

Wonderful card. Hope you are enjoying the time with your son.

Roberta Stevenson said...

Little late catching up on all of the blogs for me too! So sorry about your computer issues. Hope you get everything working again soon. I like to back up all of my files onto a USB stick so that the I always have them available. Plus I back that up to an extended hard drive as well. Hope that info helps you out for the future.

Really love your card and the the adorable mouse. Your card looks FANTASTIC!

Computer problems are the worst!! I find it really hard these days to make a card with out my computer or my Cameo. I thought I'd update my legacy (still holding on to version 2) and it upgraded me to version 3! Panic stricken! I had to leave the house for one of Emily's activities and luckily hubs was staying home. He was able to reboot the computer to last week and fixed it for me. I do not have the time or brain power to learn version 3 of the SIL program. Your card is really cute, that mouse is adorable.

Such a sweet card! Perhaps you should give it to your computer so it is more inclined to get well and cooperate with you!!
