Oh, my!  I am finally back. 
My computer was destroyed by viruses, malware, etc. and had to be totally rebuilt.  I have owned a computer since 1988 and this is the first time this has ever happened to me.  Fortunately, my DH is an IT guy, so he rebuilt it for me and restored all my programs and files.  I am SO lucky!!!

So my card tonight was inspired by my computer disaster and how I had to tell my husband there was something terribly wrong with my computer.  We have 4 dogs, so what better way to let him know than with dog-speak!

This is a There She Goes clear stamp.  The sign is blank, so you add whatever sentiment you desire, my choice being Ruh-roh... The image is colored with Tombows and I cut the sentiment/image out with a Die-Versions die cut.  I must say, I had a lot of problems getting it cut out - it took about 8 attempts with different shimming set-ups and I still ended up having to poke out each and every dot.  I even tried the metal plate, with and without shims, rotating the design, etc.  I digress.  I used KaiserCraft Devonshire Collection dp, Robins Nest dots and ribbon from Michaels.

The sketch is from The Pink Elephant.  I am also entering the following challenges:

Forever Friends - animal and something new (new die)
Pattie's Creations - animals or insects
There She Goes - sentiment as main (read blog to get why ruh-roh is THE necessary sentiment)!

Thanks for stopping by!  So good to be back live again!
