My Mac Daddy

It's been a bit quiet here over the past few days, and the reason for that is an upsetting one. . .my computer died.  Yes, my computer had had enough and cashed in its chips.  It was a rough few days around here, because I had a few deadlines, naturally, and the only working computer was my daughter's.  Her computer is old. . .very, very old, and is limited in its capabilities.  So, we did some research.  I'm tired of having to replace my computers every couple of years, and both my husband and I were in need of something reliable.  We finally settled on a Mac Book.  That is a first for us, because I have only ever owned PCs.  We got it just last night, and I have to say, so far I am super impressed.

In honor of the occasion, I whipped out this darling There She Goes Stamp set called Smarty Pants.  That sentiment just seemed to perfect to put on a card to hand to my husband after he brought home this beautiful machine :)  Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is having a Have a Heart Challenge, so this fits nicely.  I also made it for the TSG Weekly Challenge, which happens to be an inspiration challenge.  I was inspired by the Valentine type feel to the beautiful picture.

There is definitely a learning curve with the Mac Book, but it's been fun to learn new things.  I have a new photo editing software to try and tackle, but that has been fun too.  Thanks for stopping by!
