Thelma or Louise? And Computer Woes

Can I say that computers are marvelous things -- but only when they work! On Friday night, my computer went wonky.  And it blacked out because the battery was -- and it did this without warning. Then  when I plugged it back in and restarted it --my computer was like it was new.  I had to reinstall almost everything.   Some things were in its memory but not very much.  All of my files -- family pictures, saved cards in files, every card I have made for Technique Junkies, all of my documents - everything!  UGH.

I am so glad I have Carbonite as my back up on line but it  takes days and days to fully restore all that I have lost. So this will be my last post for a while --until I have the opportunity to make more cards or Carbonite gets every thing restored sooner than I think.

Fortunately i have some cards for the July releases that I have not mailed to Pat for her boards at stamp shows.   So I re-scanned this one.   The image is colored with Copic markers. I used Wink of Stella on the dresses. The image was stamped with Memento black ink. The verse was stamped with black archival ink.  And of course there are several layers.

The verse is from a Technique Junkie Stamps June release called Road Trip - http://techniquejunkies.com/road-trip-set-of-6/.  This set is full of fun things to put on a card.  The image of the two ladies in the surf is a Technique Junkie June Release called Beach Buds - http://techniquejunkies.com/beach-buds/.

Remember all of the Technique Junkies new releases are 15% until July 8.  http://techniquejunkies.com/july-2016-release/  So go shopping!  And then get inky!

Have a great day.

I use Carbonite, too, Judy, and had to do the restore myself last year. I remember being so ticked at first at how long it was going to take but it went a bit faster and afterwards everything was like before. And I still use them. Good luck with yours. xoxo

I'm so sorry for your computer woes. How frustrating it must be. This card is a beauty. I wouldn't have thought to pair the two together and it works perfectly.
