Rough Day Today!~MTC-Lattice Heart Card!

Happy Thurs.!

Hi~ya all!

How is everyone doing today? I hope all is well with everyone. I had a rough day today, was trying to update my CDS, and firmware to the latest versions. I tried 7 times, and finally after speaking to PC,with no luck I went into my C drive program, and removed all the older CDS versions. There was something in there that kept blocking out the new firmware download, and wouldn't you know it, it was the old original trial version of CDS. I must have spent an hour and half on the phone with a PC rep who couldn't figure out what the problem was. He was to call me back tomorrow, well I needed to finish up some cards tonight. After I figured it out, I called back to get my CDS installation codes again. Now I am a happy camper, and able to finish up some cards tonight.

I also wanted to share this card with you that I made with my MTC software. I am so lovin the latest release, where you can do lots of different things. I designed this card using the lattice effect, as it seems to be getting a lot of play from me, lol. The SU sentiment is heat embossed in gold SU embossing powder, so I carried the embossing to the inside. The inside sentiment is from my stamp stash, can't recall the name at the moment. I used my CB embossing folder, gold foil-board, and the snowflakes were cut from JOTS twice in gold and white. I added SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter, gold adhesive pearls and peel-offs to finish this baby up. Love the black and gold effect, so very different from the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. Tell me what you think? Catcha soon!

Hi Lillie! Got your message on my new chat box. I think there is a problem with blogger because I get that on other blogs too (in fact I just got it now on yours...3 or 4 times...I get a blue background) I just hit refresh and it seems to take care of the problem. On to your card...Stunning absolutely stunning I tell you. I love the gold and black combo and the sentiment you used is perfect! Have a great weekend!
