Summer in November

I made TONS of stuff in the months that I've been unable to post. However I never bothered to take any pics because I couldn't upload them into my computer anyways.
See, my internet started crashing.... then it just wouldn't load AT ALL. I was busy working on a project for a friend that made me unable to take my computer in for repairs because I needed it for my scrapbooking program.
Finally I was able to hand it over to the professionals...... 4 days later it was returned to me IN WORSE CONDITION!! The laptop guy had added a second profile that he claimed would allow me to use the internet. I didn't. It still crashed constantly. And even if it did work, all my bookmarks and favourites list was in my OTHER profile. I NEED those lists. Also, the "professional" had somehow managed to screw up all my programs and files so NOTHING was working.
Oh how I wanted to start using my daughter's laptop. So easy.....just move a bunch of my stuff over to hers. But I held strong. I figured my computer had gotten a bad virus and I didn't want to risk spreading the infection to hers.
Instead I used hers for Google. Endless Googling what could have gone wrong with my laptop and ways to fix it. A lot of trial and error but mine is now running PERFECTLY. Internet is smooth and all programs are perfect. (and I've deleted the pointless secondary user profile)
Ok rant over.
I know that I should be showing a Christmas card if I wanna fit in, hopefully soon since I just finished one, but this is a "HELLO" card with a bit of a summery feel.

Nice to "see" you again! Omg, if I had the problems you had with your computer, I'd freak. I'd be lost without my internet, and a complete grumpy bear (or that other word that starts with a "b") too.

Beautiful card. So soft and pretty and cas. I love it.

What a sweet, cute and, as you said, somewhat summery card. Love the scattered bling and the pieced flower. And glad your computer is back up and running. Isn't it amazing how much we depend on our computers nowadays? Thanks for playing along with us at Tuesday Alchemy!

This is adorable, Farrah! I love the glittery accent strip on the side, and the way you've placed the gems in the corresponding colors to highlight your sweet flowers. The overall look is sweet. If you get a chance, I hope you will come by Word Art Wednesday and play along with us. Our challenges are always Anything Goes, and this week we have TWO awesome prizes.
