Posting woes and an old card...

Do you know what the most frustrating part of this is? The fact that I actually HAVE photos to share of some really fun cards! ARGHH! This computer virus/trojan thing is driving me batty!
I have tried everything recommended by the experts, and short of buying a new computer (I can't even do a system restore) I'm at a loss. Besides, if I purchase a new computer, I still lose the photos that were on the old one! Typing this at the library makes me sad, but I wanted to give you all an update and let you know that I'm still alive. *smile*
I'm including a photo of a card I made in April of 2005. Isn't it hysterical to look back on your older cards and see how much has changed? Not only what's "in", but style, LO and design too. Don't judge too harshly, I'd only been stamping for a few months when I made this card! And I hand drew those letters too!


CARD FROM 2005! Bazzill CS and Hero Arts stamps (these were the first stamps I EVER owned!)

I love those stamps! Nice freehand on the "happy," too!

Did you not save your pics to a jump drive??

So sorry to hear about your computer. Hope it all works out...

Sorry your computer isn't being friendly.
These are happy memories we capture on paper just for something to post on days like today:)

Hope your computer woes get sorted out soon. That must be so frustrating! My crafting style has changed so much in a couple of months. Wonder what I'll think when I look back in a couple of years. LOL!

I am so sorry to hear about your computer. Have you seen a real tech guy? Not staples or those places, they are awful! I use the tech guy from my school...he is awesome. And I like your old card, its pretty, nic job on the letters.

Isn't it fun to look back on old cards? I think they can be very inspirational! I love that each of the flowers are on papers of different lengths and that you hand-wrote the sentiment. I think incorporating handwriting into cards is fun! :)

i'm really sorry about your computer. i know what it feels like to lose pictures. i lost all our pictures from our family vacation last year. The only ones left are ones i posted online and was able to copy. Every time i think about that i still get upset!
i cringe to look back at some of my old work! i think your hand-lettering is awesome! Thanks for sharing!
