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.
