I didn't intend to "eScape" just yet!

This past week I was forced to "eScape" sooner than I thought! By that, I am referring to a promo that Stampin' Up! is running later on this month titled eScape; which is based around the idea of not using the internet, texting, etc for an entire day...but to communicate on a more personal level by making and sending a handmade card.

I unexpectedly got a little taste of that this week when I was forced not to be able to go online. Last Friday our hard drive bit the dust (on my birthday, no less!) so I've been unable to post anything on my blog...sorry about that! I didn't realize just how much time I spend on the computer browsing the internet reading and checking out other stamping blogs. I sure missed that, but the up side was that I had a lot more time to do other use the birthday gift I sent myself! ;-)

This lovely box of goodies, including the new Fresh Cuts stamp set and die cut notes, arrived here just in time for my birthday and before my computer died. Thank goodness they were able to save all my photos I had on my computer! This is one that was transferred over.

I have made some beautiful samples (if I do say so myself!) using Fresh Cuts that I'm excited to share here...after I get everything loaded on this new computer. Keeping my fingers crossed that all my hardware & software is compatible with this new Vista operating system. Sometimes I really hate computers! Not too sure how I like this one yet. (so far not really!) Hopefully when I get everything up and running again I'll love it. It kind of sucked being forced to buy a new one when we were not planning on it. Oh least we have power and no damages from the recent storms that have been blowing thru here. Keeping my fingers crossed on that aspect as well...we missed the first series of TS that went thru this area this morning, but more are on the way...and after all it is Friday the 13th! Hope your day is a lucky one!
