Back up my hard drive?

Well it's a new Stella Says Sketch at Catch the Bug.  For my card I used Stella Tidbits - Hard Drive. I put Glossy Accents on her glasses.  This is how I feel about my computer since my husband did all the things with it, lol.
This is the weekend that my parents are having their 50th Anniversary party.  My Mom didn't want it in February because she was worried about bad weather; however, here this weekend it is raining and it is suppose to have rain/sleet/snow.  So it will be interesting.  I will see what pictures that I am able to get since she will not agree to having a photographer.  My best friend was going to go along to take photos, but her Mom was hospitalized and now is being put into hospice care so she isn't going to go along.  Change in plans...since the weather was so bad today the restaurant called and canceled the Anniversary party for my Mom and said they would call her on Monday to reschedule.  They got 8 inches of snow and are getting more besides had freezing rain first so cars are just sliding off the road.  So she had to call everyone to tell them and has 150 cupcakes to freeze to save for another day.  She had balloon arrangements that will have to be redone.  The big thing is keeping everyone safe. It's just funny she didn't want to have it in February when their actual Anniversary was since she was afraid of the weather instead waited until April when she thought it would be nice and SURPRISE it was worse than anything we had back then.  Someday we will laugh, but not today.

Gorgeous card with Stella.
So sorry for your parents that they have to reschedule their anniversary birthday due to the bad weather. I just heard about it on the radio.
Hope you all will be safe.
Dutch hugs,

I LOVE your card, I'm not bad with the computer, but couldn't find the off button for a video call to my niece on my phone LOL.

I'm sorry to hear about the party, what a shame, but as you say safety is paramount for everyone, or it could be remembered for the wrong reasons, you WILL laugh in a while - quite a while. Keep safe in that awful weather you are having. We had a beautiful Spring day yesterday, today is rain with a stiff breeze making it feel quite cold, so the heating is back on after being off for 1 day LOL.

That sentiment is fun and I like your choice of colors. Congratulations to your parents for making it 50 years together. Hopefully they will get their well deserved anniversary party when the weather is better.

This card is so funny! I can relate. I think to do things like back ups only AFTER I've had issues. Live and learn.
Isn't this weather amazing? I'm so sorry about the party being canceled. They should have stuck with February, but who would have guessed? We have at least 12 inches and it's still snowing. The first of it was mixed with rain, then freezing rain, so it's a real mess. I thought about staying in bed until it melts, but I might be there awhile!

I go back to work tomorrow after being off 2 months with pneumonia. It'll be great to get back to see my peeps but I'll see how my energy is. I'll miss my crafting time, too. Oh well!

Oh my goodness what a story! But you're right, it's best to be safe. And your card is adorably funny! I just love Stella.

Joanna Moore said...

Oh no!! Your poor mom must be a bit sad about celebrating her day with such terrible weather. I hope it was fun regardless (and I want pictures of everyone in their dresses!) Your card is adorable.

hahhahah... cute & fun card and the sentiment is terrific.
Isn't that snow something else? We got a couple of big blasts of it too but thankfully it's all gone now although April isn't and we could always get more.
