Is anyone familiar with the story book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day ? Today was one for the book. I made this card last night for the PTI Blog Hop which I thought was today. It was yesterday! I get the blog posts the day AFTER they are posted, for whatever reason. Anyway . . . we had an unexpected day off from school which threw my internal clock off. I hurried home last night to make a card for the hop. Tonight, I rushed home to photo and post the card. When I went to the blog to link it, to my dismay . . . it was over! Duh. . . today’s the 26th!!
Just ask my daughter, I can foul up any computer and software. Today, my school laptop would only link to the server if I walked with it to the end of the hall. Then I found out my grades did not save for some reason to the report card program. I ended up with blank report cards. They go home tomorrow! I can see the grades on my computer. . . when it connects. . . hope the head tech can figure this one out in the morning! He just loves to see me coming.
The GOOD news. . . I have a card to post after a long dry spell. This is really easy. It uses scraps and takes not a lot of time. I used the Beyond Basic Borders set and embossed the images with clear embossing powder and Versa. I like to sponge my papers to add extra depth. I usually use the same colored ink with a touch of a metallic in a similar color family. I did this here on the green and yellow. The base is PTI Linen. Love this color. Added a little bling to a dot here and there for fun. It worked. Try this design and/or technique and let me know how you like it. I don’t think I’ll try to do anything more with the computer tonight. That might be pressing my luck.
Wishing you all better days tomorrow!
