pti challenge   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!Steaming mad 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 comingRolling on the floor laughing.


   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 luckSarcastic smile.



Wishing you all better days tomorrow!

Susan, it's beautiful!
Love the colors!
And I'm so glad I'm not alone when it comes to being lost in technology...
I have books...
I could try and learn...
but they don't read like a novel so I just stare at them :)
A beautiful card...and deserves no less attention because it was a little late!

I just wnet to add a card to the Just Add Ink challenge and it had ended! It's not the first time I've done that either! My computer has jammed up on me multiple times today. I commiserate with you. Tomorrow is bound to be better!
