Viruses are bad, very bad!

I know human viruses are bad and now I know how bad computer viruses can be!! I spent almost 8 hours working on my computer yesterday and finally a lovely lady from Microsoft was able to come into my computer long distance and finally purge it of some sort of Trojan virus that kept multiplying and was shutting down my computer. Exhausting but success was sweet! I also learned to clean out my Temporary Files daily -- never had done it in a year and I had over 41,000 temp files clogging up this poor machine and it provided a festering ground for those viruses!! So, enough about my pain and on to the drum roll and a winner....

Congrats to Doramyi -- you won my Long Distance Open House Blog Candy Raffle!!

I also wanted to post a fun little card I made combining the new owls from Be Square and I used the branch from Artsy Owls. I had a little paperpiecing fun and then embossed the whole card after that with a cuttlebug folder to make it all a bit more interesting!

Card Materials: all supplies from The Angel Company
Stamps: Be Square, Artsy Owl (I found them under animals on the online catalog!)
Accessories: Kraft paper pack, Rustic Chic, Red DCWV, ribbon, button, twine, MS border punch, CB embossing plate

I just finished a card this morning that I can't wait to share with you. See you soon!
