Cuttlebug Spot~DT Card/~Blog Hop!!!!

Happy Mon.!!

Hi~ya Everyone!

How is everyone doing today? Fine I do hope, I'm just trying to stay cool!! Cool from the heat, and cool because my computer was acting crazy. I installed my new Norton 360 Norton Security about a month ago. Since then my computer has been acting weired, not letting me open some programs. Well yesterday, our internet was down, and when it came back up, my computer wouldn't open any programs. That is why my post is so late tonight. My daughter Nisha has been working on it all day, and she finally said, that it must be the Norton. She uninstalled and reinstalled my photo-editing system, thinking it was that. It was'nt, it was this stupid Norton. This is the most expensive one on the market, so you would think I wouldn't be having any problems. Last year when I bought it, all was fine, but nooooooo... not this time. I just had to let it all out, because it was on both of my computers. My daughter had not installed it on hers yet, but that did me no good. All my crafting files and pictures are on my own. Just had to vent, thanks for listening.

Now back to my Cuttlebug Spot card, our challenge was to use a technique from the past. I chose to use double embossing, and inking. It's kinda hard to see on the designer paper, but I used the Swiss dots and the Hearts folders. I also use my nesties for the frame and the hearts, which I inked up with SU inks. MS punch, Kaiser pearls, and ribbon are from my stash. Designer paper and card stock is from SU.
Well, from what I know our blog hop will be starting tomorrow. Our Nilda just returned from vacation, so we will start a day late. Be sure to come over to The Cuttlebug Spot, and play along with our challenges. And don't forget hop on over to Kathrin's blog and leave a comment. That's it for me tonight. Catcha Soon!!

Lillie, this is a most fantastic card. I absolutely adore the colors and the paper treatments....
Norton sucks, by the way. I am a Mac gal through and through but I had to get a PC for my studio to deal with embroidery machine downloads and Cricut, etc.,....and the computer guru at work said remembr these initials. NIN. Never Install Norton. He put Panda on my PC. Anyway, girl, I do so love your card.
