Penny Black makes gorgeous stickers! This butterfly tag sticker is one of a collection of twelve stickers titled Winged Petals. I created a background using distress inks and added a pair of dragonflies for an accent of white and to really get the motion going!! The dragonflies and sentiment banner are from Penny Black's Creative Die set "Tagged".
I love having these stickers on hand both for inspiration and for a jump start on a beautiful card.
I am happily creating this blog post on my new computer!! My 8 year old computer was no longer able to function in Blogger. I went with a heavy heart and leaden feet to the computer store, dreading the change to Windows 8. I haven't learned to function with my new cell phone; I had no hope that I could master Windows 8 on a new computer.
This story has a happy ending! Lo and behold, the first computer I looked at on the shelf, and I think it was winking at me, was tagged with a sign saying "Windows 7". With not a second's hesitation I cried out, "This is it!" and husband went to get the salesperson to ring it up.
Can you imagine the scene after I left the store? Manager and salespeople alike doing high 5's!! "Wow, I didn't think we would ever sell that baby!" Well, that baby was meant to be mine.
The good news is that Blogger is working perfectly; Flickr is behaving much better; and things move more quickly. An added bonus was having my two year old never been used digi camera set up and functioning with my Easy Share software. My picture quality should improve.
Of course, with any new setup there are bugs. Email is possessed with Word demons and the tool bar with my navigation tools is stuck up under the frame of my monitor. Not to mention the 5 minute start up time!
But this morning we are back to the Geeks that set it up with hope in our hearts that all can be fixed. Some things are just meant to be, and I love how that computer was on the shelf waiting for me!!
Thanks for your visit. Have a great weekend. I hope your day brings a happy surprise, too!
