About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years. I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

Edward Scissorhands...

So, I'm not quite sure what happened...  I did this post last night and thought I had set it to post at something like 3am.  I get up this morning to check to make sure my living room isn't flooded (I'll get to that in a second), turn on the computer, take my first sip of my coffee, come here and nothing.  Where did my post go?  Well, its off in cyberland having a great laugh with all the missing emails and files that we all can't find.

Before I get started, I want to say my heart goes out to all my fellow Calgarians that are affected by the flooding.  I just couldn't imagine. My heart also goes out to the families of the people who lost their lives because of the flood.  I have never seen flooding of this magnitude.  Its unbelievable how much water there is around.

So, we're watching tv the other night and I kept hearing this clicking noise.  I said to my husband "why does that speaker keep making a clicking noise" and he's like "I can't hear it" (of course you can't).  So I wait a little while and hear it again.  I go over to the speaker - which goes over the back of the arm of the couch - and there's water dripping from the ceiling onto the speaker.  OMG, our roof is leaking from all the rain we've been having.  So we had to put a bowl on the couch so it wouldn't get wet.  Good thing the speaker didn't get any water in side of it.  So now when it rains, it leaks.  Greeaaattt.  Luckily it quit raining yesterday afternoon and didn't rain last night - or not that I heard it.  Its bad enough that the basement weeps everytime we get a lot of rain, now the roof leaks.  The landlord is going to have to do some major work to this house, that all I'm sayin'

OK, now on to our card.  As you can tell by my post title, this weeks' challenge is about Edward Scissorhands.  I enjoyed that movie.

I think Johnny Depp was great in it.  But, I had no idea what to do for a card.  Luckily, there was also a tie-in to sewing. Whew!  I knew I could work with that.  Well, here is my card.  Its simple, and country-ish.  I hope you like it.

Well, I think you should head over to the Drunken Stampers Blog and check out this week's challenge. I know you'll have a great time and the people are always so friendly.

That's it for me for today.  I'll be back next week with another project.  I know they have something great planned for us for next week. :)

Take care and keep dry...

I love this layout, Cat!
I'm glad to hear that you guys are (mostly) dry - absolutely insane what's been happening out there.
