You can skip to the next paragraph because this had nothing to do with cards. Day before yesterday my new printer came on by itself and did an update. It took my computer offline and there was no choice of internet to pick. No WiFi, no nothing. Technophobe that I am, I called Comcast. They were extremely nice and said they could have someone out here this morning between 8 and 10. I am not an 8 am person but I set the alarm and got ready. Comast called at 9:26 and said my guy was here. I knew he was because he had been sitting in his truck for 5 minutes. Another 20 minutes went by and I went to put in laundry. The phone rang and Comcast said they were sorry they missed me and my visit was over. WHAT? He was gone and never knocked or rang the bell. I had the front door open. Needless to say I called right away and an hour later he came back. Said no, he didn't think I was home so didn't get out the of truck. He did get this computer up and running, and put my other computer, printer and tv on the same network. I just went to log on the other computer and it does not recognize my password. Nerve pill or alcohol, which one! I'm afraid to log off this one.

I still have Valentines to show you and this is one we made in the Stampin Up class. Used those big SU letters and popped them up on foam tape. Be kind to one another.

  6. Alcohol for sure! I'd be calling Comcast to complain about their tech. It was very irresponsible for him to not knock/ring, but just decide you were not home! Good luck with fixing the rest of the computer woes. I'm glad he at least got you back on line. Love this hidden design (I think that is what this technique is called) for this awesome card. The background is very arty and those letters are so subtle, yet really stand out nicely. Good job! Take care. TFS & Hugs

  8. Oh, no! I so sympathize with you with the technical issues. It is times like that I almost wish I did not have a computer. It can be a nail biting time. But I want to say how much I love the card you made and I like the idea of using some foam tape to pop up the letters. That is a great look. I will have to keep that idea in mind for my own card making when I get back into it.

  9. How frustrating! Thank goodness he came back & hope the other computer problem gets fixed, too! I was recently thinking that I haven't done this technique in awhile & now you've shown me I have to do it! This is absolutely beautiful!

  10. Are you kidding me?!! He never got out the truck?! It's winter, no one looks like their home because it's cold and everything is shut up tight. I don't get that! lol How do you know someone is home unless you ring the bell, makes no sense to me. We all should have a job like that, huh??! Glad he came back Brenda, but sounds like he needs to come back again and finish the job. lol Glad he got you up and running some though. I think you need both-the nerve pill and the alcohol. lol I love, love, love this card! The background you stamped is amazing and I love how you cut out your "love" letters from it. Yep, I'm in love with this card! Hugs, Brenda
