Wow, it's November 10th already. I've spent just over a week now trying to get my computer to cooperate with me after Windows fried itself. Thank God I'm good with tech stuff, and I back up my stuff...most of the time has been spent reinstalling (and updating) Windows, reinstalling (and upgrading some) programs, and making sure I understand how to get graphics device drivers installed cleanly so I don't have the same problem again later. Unfortunately, on Windows, when you uninstall something, you don't necessarily get ALL of it...and those little artifacts can really mess up your day (or week, in my case) at some unforeseen juncture down the road! My computer is a lot more stable now, and I feel a lot more geekier. But I've missed stamping!!!
November 1-8th was Stampin' Up!'s Worldwide Week of Workshops. I held a Workshop in my home on the 8th, and below are the cards we made. You don't have to spend hours creating a masterpiece every time you stamp...these cards are cute and they only took a few minutes to make:
