Now maybe I'm still to experience something worse with blogging, but THAT was about the worst thing that I could imagine happening.
Six hours later, after some marathon googling and then cutting and pasting, the wonderful comments were back on my blog. As mad as I had been at Blogger for not having asked computer-dumbell-me if I "really, really, really wanted to delete", I was ecstatic to discover that the emails I receive when comments are posted were still in my trash can in Gmail!
Enter the cutting and pasting.
SOOO, the card that I had planned to work on last night, didn't happen until today.
Unfortunately I need two more sympathy cards. I wanted to play with the Play Date Cafe's color challenge - mojito, peony and sand.
And I wanted to use my new Craft Concepts embossing folder. With Coredinations whitewash CS. Sanded. What a cool effect this has.
Inked up my typewriter BG with creme and beige and stamped my frame . Clear embossed the chestnut brown sentiment (the sympathy message is inside.) Inked all edges. Added some beige cotton twine as a frame around the frame to give it more texture.
In the inspiration photo the pink looks pretty light. But I needed a bit more contrast so I went with this medium pinky tone. Glued some seed beeds onto the punched butterflies for... more texture. Now I get to wrap it in bubble wrap when I mail it...
BTW, I use Glossy Accents to adhere lots of things. Holds like cement.
Also hooking up to Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge.
Hope you have a healthy and happy weekend. I'm happy. I got my comments back :)
