This has definitely been a trying week. It all started last weekend when we discovered that we would have to purchase a new garage door. We knew it was coming, but you're never really prepared, right? We've had 2 panels replaced and metal braces put on and it was just time. Oh btw, those braces were only suppose to last for 2 years and we got 5 more years...so who am I to complain? Then last Saturday night our home computer was totally infected with some vicious malware. A lot of the hard drive is trashed but I am having one of the IT guys from work come over next week to see what he can salvage. So on top of buying a new garage door (which does look beautiful btw) we had to buy a new computer. I mean the other one was 8 years old and really kind of outdated but I would have preferred to do it when I wanted to do it, not when some stupid virus decided to take over. Oh well, enough of the rant.
I do have some great, exciting news to share. I've been putting this off because I've felt that maybe I've been the jinx the last 3 times. Every time I make my daughter-in-law a card announcing that Liam's going to have a brother or sister something goes terribly wrong. Well, Heather is doing great and Liam's going to have a baby brother in the fall. I wanted to make something really special so I decided to really put my Gypsy to the test and make a shaped card. I have now learned how to flip and weld (to make the base) and hide contours (what a great feature!). As usual, I used a lot of different cartridges and had a ball making this.

I certainly hope I've waited long enough to make this. We've know for quite a while that she's pregnant so we're thrilled to await the arrival of new grandson. Hugs to everyone...Kris
