Shanna - IAS #3

Hi again my friends.  Whoops!  I'm a little late getting my post done. I was so busy yesterday getting my Spring housecleaning done, even though I was not feeling great due to a bout of allergies which I'm beginning to see is a yearly thing. It was enough to have me off work for 2 days this past week. The good news is that my TV/Internet service is FIXED! I'm so happy that they were finally able to send someone to my house who recognized what was wrong right off the bat. I did have to call him once a couple days later after he was done because I still had an issue with it, but he was able to access the system remotely and tweak it just a little bit and get it working. So I guess it doesn't hurt to complain to the top. Got results! And they have been very nice about it with phone calls from the President's office to make sure everything was working correctly.

So, with a sigh of relief, getting on to my card for the International Art & Soul challenge for this fortnight.

  • Image - Stamping Bella - Shanna

  3. Oh so pretty! I love that background paper and the fun die at the bottom. Cute, cute image too.

  4. What a Super cute card! Love your coloring! Good to Hear you got your computer running. I know what that feels like. Mine was down for A Year and just got running a few weeks myself. And Good job on your spring cleaning.

    1. Thank you Laura and thanks for stopping by. Wow, I would not have been able to be without my computer for a year.

  5. Oh, that's an adorable little girl, and you've got the perfect papers and die cut border to go with her. Don't you love it when everything comes together so perfectly? It's good to hear you got results by going to the top. So nice to have everything in working order! As for your allergies, unless you've suffered with them it's hard to imagine how debilitating they can be. I don't have allergies, thank goodness, but I've seen how miserable one of my friends is with them when they come on. And she was never affected till she got older. You never know...

  6. The expression on that little girl's face is priceless! And I love that birthday border die! Great card , Maggie!

Enjoyed seeing this darling card, love the happy colors with that fab punch border. Glad to hear you got the internet problems sorted.
