Anyway, I got a lot of coloring done this weekend but no cards completed. This card I finished last week and just wanted to share. I know a lot of us can relate. The image is called Florence by Guylou's Inimitability. The sentiment is from TLC Creations.

This time of year we all get reminded that we have so much to be thankful for. And we should be thankful for our blessing all year, not just at this time, but we are so reminded at this time that we do have a lot to give thanks for.
This past week especially I have been saying thank you quite often. My hard drive crashed and I lost everything; photos, documents, digis, you name it. One of the tasks I have been working on is trying to recover some of the files I lost, especially the files I had previously purchased from various companies. I've not had one company say no. Everyone has been very helpful and has truly treated me like a friend. I truely appreciate their willingness not only to accommodate but to help with words of encouragement, praise and a willing spirit. So today I say thank you for your friendship to my on-line friends and my friends I have known forever. My life is so blessed for having you in it. Thank you.
My little gift bag will hold a special treat for one dear friend. The image I used is from the Always in Season set. You can find it in the store here.

Geek Squad could only tell me that no system is fool proof. SO I asked what could I do in the future. He said have to drives and back them up periodically. Two drives? What in the world. Ok, did I mention they couldn't retrieve my info either.
I am heartbroken!!!! I don't know what the lesson is in this. I was doing the right things and still....
Ok, running to Staples to see what they can do. I hear they are really good at this.

Here is a project I had a chance to play with. I wanted to try to make a card that included acetate. So my little fish bowl captured that perfectly. I used the cute little fish from the "Best Fishes" set. You can find it in the store.
I can let you in on a secret now. The trick was a ghost and that was on Rhonda's card. Everyone else had candy, so that was the treat. Yes, Frankie was holding a star shaped lollipop on my card - not a magic wand. But I got a good laugh off of that one. It did look like a wand in his hand. LOL
Head on over to the Daisy Doodles Challenge Blog to see who the grand winner is....
