Y'all have got to know by now that one of my stamping heroes is Maile Belles. Her clean-and-simple style is a win. Every. Single. Time.
So when I visited my Cards Pinterest board and saw THIS card by Maile, I got an idea using Bitty Bouquets from Papertrey.
Note how I changed the sentiment font to go with the images. The light stems and flowers of the third card get a smaller, lighter font, while the heavy stem and flowers of the second card get a thick, heavy sentiment. The medium weight of the top stem and flowers gets a medium weight font. Go, me!!!
The corners of the sentiment strips were snipped with scallop deco scissors to give them a more finished look.
Now for the rant.
I'm having major issues with the latest Windows updates on my computer. Nothing is working properly. Chrome won't work at all. IE at least lets me browse, but that's all. I can't upload photos in Blogger AT ALL, and the Compose view of the post looks all messed up, while the HTML view looks fine. At least, I think it looks fine...I'm no HTML expert! Heaven only knows what this post will look like when it goes live.
Can someone tell me why Blogger isn't compatible with IE11? Seriously?
BTW, I logged onto my husband's computer to get the pictures onto this post. These updates don't ever affect HIS laptop's performance. I'd really like to know what sort of demon has possessed my computer. It really, really, really enjoys screwing with me.
My email isn't working, either, so if you email me, I can't receive or send, except through web mail. To fix that problem, I have to uninstall Norton Antivirus and reinstall it as a custom install so I can turn off the Norton Anti-Spam Plugin that keeps messing up my email because it's not compatible with Outlook.
This chaos happens every time there's a windows update, but this is the worst one yet. All the fixes I've used in the past are not working. Can you tell I'm frustrated?
Knew you could. Thank you for listening. I'm going to drink wine and eat pizza and contemplate the good ol' days before PCs until my desire to throw my laptop to the floor and jump up and down on it passes.
Y'all might not hear from me for a few days.
What a mess.
