ANOTHER CHALLENGE ENTRY CARD

Hello, everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful evening!  Wow, aren't we approaching another weekend quickly?!  I'm loving it because with every passing weekend bringss Spring!!!  LOL!!! I do love the beauty of winter but not when it turns ugly!

I wanted to quickly address that I've noticed more and more of you requesting I become friends with you on Facebook.  I have not disregardedly ignored your requests!!!  Unfortunately, the very first time I signed on to Facebook, and my last time since, my computer got a virus which wiped out my whole hard drive.  The techs were able to retrieve a lot of my information but had to repartition (????) my drives.  It was not pleasant and it was costly to have done!  Besides which, it absolutely frightened me when hundreds of people immediately pounched on me; it was as though all these people had been sitting there just waiting on me!!!  I am now afraid to even approach Facebook so, unfortunately, I haven't the trust at this time to sign on again -- and there's no way I could find the time to respond to all the hundreds and hundreds of people already wanting me to be friends.  I'd like to thank you all for the invites but I'm not willing to take the risk at this time.  Sorry!  Maybe one day!  In the meantime, please forgive me.

Now on to my card.  I made this card specificallyto qualify for two (2) challenges:  "Use 2 Patterned Papers" Challenge at http://craftyourpassionchallenges.blogspot.com/ and  "Fabulous Flowers" Challenge at http://toptiptuesday.blogspot.com/.

Here's my card:


I'm off to run some errands, however, when I return I'll be around to drop by to see what you're all up too!

I'll be seeing you!

never been on Face Book and honestly have no desire to go there. must be my age as i just feel "social" networking is to be done in person :)

That stinks about facebook. I can facebook from my phone so when I am out and about waiting for something (like my kids) it is easy to stay caught up! I will still visit you here, don't worry!!

Stunning Card Audrey!
We are having Spring like weather here in California, well at least during the day, not at night. But I am wanting Spring to come.

As for FaceBook. Yes, tons of viruses are there, you just have to know where to not go and have a great virus protection program. I have tons of friends on my FB account, but it isn't to hard to keep up with. It is just that it is a bit time consumming. But respect you not wanting to get back on. Maybe one day in the future. If you ever need a really good virus protection progam, let me know, I have had no issues since I added it to my computer 8 months ago. Good luck with your challenges.

Oh, I have a blog award waiting for you on my blog.

As far as fb, I only go one like once a month and don't play those games - i think that give folks the virus. But, yes - I was reading someone blog this morning asking... do we really need fb when we are blogger friends. I couldn't keep up on fb let alone my 300 blogs i subscribe too!
