OWH-More Mothers Day cards

Yesterday I had Word open and was working on a sentiment. Had it all ready to print. You know, the right font and size where I could print it on the card. I turned around from my work desk to my computer desk and I had major problems! My Windows 7 had crashed. One of my grandsons came over and helped me. We used the recovery disc that I made when I first got the computer which was only 8 months ago (it was still under warranty). I lost everything in the way of pictures and documents and all that. I store my data online. It took 2 hours of download this morning but I have it all back. So glad I pay that less than $4 a month. I don't have to worry about backing stuff up. It does it automatically.

Okay, now for the cards. My, I was so chatty I have to think about what I am posting. The card with the yummy food is more paper from the DCWV snack pad. Loving these papers. I mounted the sentiment on gold antique look paper. The card with a bird I made some time ago. I changed out the strip on the top for Mothers Day. The bird cages are gold foil imprinted on the paper. Very fancy indeed. I stamped the bird and covered in Diamond Glaze to give it body and then cut it out. I love this design and want to make more cards like this.

Hey, Cora. Sorry to hear about the crash--but good for you with your online storage. Definitely worth it! I'm sure you had a scare getting it all put back together. I like your Mother's Day cards. I'm at the coast for a few days and popped a few Mother's Day cards in the mail to OWH from here! I only mailed 5, but I figured every little bit helps. Your bird card is really nice and your bird cage paper is a perfect background.
