So after many hours with HP – I’ll get my laptop fixed. At their expense. But I’ll have to send it off for a new motherboard. So I’ll be without it for about 3 weeks. Yikes! I did load my photo software onto my desktop though so I can still post from there. But no curling up on the couch with my laptop for a month! Maybe it’ll keep me from sitting on my butt all day….we’ll see! Just pray that they don’t accidentally erase my hard drive, ok? I have it all backed up, but I’d rather not have to reload everything, ya know?

Anyway, here’s another card we made at class last week. I’ve got newer stuff and some other things to share, but I’m knee deep in Teacher Appreciation gifts and Mother’s Day gifts. Plus tomorrow I am going to Alex’s class to make a variation of <these> with them. I think it’ll be a cute Mother’s Day gift for them to give their mom’s. I hope they enjoy making them!

So here’s a quick post with the card…and then I”ll share something else I’ve come up with – a storage idea for ya – tomorrow. I really love this stamp set, it has so many good verses in it. And it’s quite elegant in it’s simplicity.

At the Arlington Stamp Day I got to see one of those Scotch ATG thingies in person. Wow! They really are big! I don’t think it was quite as heavy as it looks though. So I’m curious – how many of you use one of those suckers? Do you find it’s big on your table? I’m thinking it would be in my way, but the people who use them really seem to love them! I doubt I’ll be ditching my mono multi any time soon….however, Sharon (and a few other ladies) swear by this Zip Dry stuff. Sharon gave me a bottle to test it out….I’ll let you know what I think!

***ETA – I do not use mono tape runners. I use mono multi – this stuff rocks and will rip your paper to take it apart once it’s dry! I love that! Just to clarify!!***
