Get Well Ladybug

Well...Some BAD news and some GOOD news.  First, my 5 year old computer crashed on Sunday and it was a sad day as I didn't back up all my files, but just some of them and pretty much lost everything.  All my digi's are now gone except for the Designed2Delight ones that I happened to backup on my external hard drive a couple of weeks ago.  So the only other digi's I have left are the ones that I had already printed.  But, life goes on and I wasn't about to give up on my computer and on Monday after a lot of thought, I spent the entire afternoon on the phone with a Dell Tech and now....my computer is like brand new.  I lost everything and have to start fresh, but my computer is running like brand new.  I am happy and thankful to the Dell tech that revived my computer and brought it back from the computer graveyard.  So even though it started out bad, it ended up being a very good thing :)

Now on to my card.


I have had this adorable digi, "Little Ladybug" by Whimsy & Stars Studio colored for some time and waiting to be made into a card.  It seems that I never have a get well card when I need one. Now, I have one in my stash ready to be sent.  I used Glossy Accents on the center of the flower and the ladybug's spots and a white gel pen for the highlights on her cheeks.  It's hard to tell from the photo, but there is a black and red button layered in the center of the crocheted flower.  I kept the card simple to showcase the adorable image.

Lovely card, love the colors you used. Thanks for joining us at SSDS! Good Luck in the challenges.

On another note, sorry to hear about your computer. If you would of taken it to a mom and pop computer shop, they could of gotten all your files before you reformatted. Dell, chain stores and Best Buy are real good about those quick fixes because they don't care about peoples data. I meet several a month that have gone through the same thing. Remember in the future, Back up, Back up and Back up and try your local Computer shops for repairs.
