Color Blog Hop Feb. 1, 2017

Sooo . . . I got a new laptop . . . I’m struggling getting used to some aspects of it.  Of course I love that it is faster and that it doesn’t shut down because it is over heating – but the pictures seem like there is a filter over them – and much of the print is in gray-scale!  BUT – I can post on my blog and I was a bit worried about how hard that would be for me to do.  Window’s 10 is another issue, but so far, I’m hanging in there.  It’s been 8 years since I’ve updated, and  yes, I’m still stuck on my trusty old Dell Inspiron.img_0822  My son got me an HP ENVY Notebook.  He spent a lot of time helping me select the best one for my needs and I pretty much drove him crazy with the resolution needs.  I’m still not happy with the way Pinterest shows up on the new screen – it seems grainy/blurry.   He has spent hours trying to make me happy with adjustments and also explaining to his non-techy mom why the higher resolution = a picture I’m not content with.   We even went over to Costco where I nice manager made an exception and got me connected to the internet so I could see what a 4K screen would look like on Pinterest – no better!  I  do really appreciate that they keyboard is exactly the same 😉 . . . and the touch screen is interesting to remember to use.

You should have arrived from Joni’s blog and up next is my good friend Sandy.  I enjoyed sharing a new technique with her this weekend – I’m offering a hint as a ‘cliff-hanger’ – you’ll have to wait until later this month [Feb. 22nd] when we share our favorite technique with you.  This little treat bag was a cinch to whip up with the right framelits!

32347171b Howdy hoppers!  You should have come via Joni’s blog and up next is Sandy.  I am very curious to see what everyone has come up with this week.  Although I like my card, I don’t think it’s very Valentiny! Oh my, spellcheck does not like that one.  Thanks for stopping in – next week is no hearts – I’m still pondering that one!  img_0821

Hi Hoppers – it’s very late [I forgot I had parent-teacher conferences tonight – how could I possibly do that???] then my school system, in their infinite wisdom, thought it was a good idea to go ahead with them – even though there was a freezing rain advisory . . . so I got to leave school at 8 pm and drive home 25 miles on the interstate in freezing rain – just peachy right???  Anyway, my card has been made since Sunday – it’s a bit unusual, and may not have photographed extremely well, but here it is.  You should have arrived from Joni’s blog and please pop over to see what Sandy whipped up.  Thanks for stopping in.img_0820

36070694bHappy New Year to all!  You should have arrived via Joni’s blog and Sandy is up next.  This project was an enormous challenge for me – I don’t have any current snow type stamps.  Being a ‘snow bunny’ it was hard for me resisting pulling out some of my favorite retired snow friends but I kept thinking of how I could use what I have.  I hope you like my creation.  I am pleased with the outcome and this will serve as a masculine birthday card for my son.  Maybe we will see some of the white stuff later this week 😉img_0819
