Quick Post, A Card and a Word Art Book

This will be a quick post to let you all know that I may not be on the computer very much in the next couple weeks.  I had been having computer problems, thought maybe a virus, but took it in for a sweep and nothing was found.  Then on Thursday I got a notice from my virus protection program that I needed to download the newest upgrade.  I did and now I have to have my hard drive reformatted.  It won't even let me get on the internet and I had to go into safe mode to even uninstall the program.  The techs told me it corrupted my registery and my operating system.   Grrrrrrr....Computer problems rank right up there with car problems... I hate both of them and they are both expensive to fix.  Having said that since my computer is 7 years old...I can't complain about it's performance, but I was at least hoping for 7 more years..LOL  Anyway they recommended I replace my harddrive at this time due to I will be without a computer for awhile, but will try to check my email from time to time when I'm at my sons.

Now for my creations:

I followed a tutorial I found over at Top Tip Tuesday
I have always wanted to know how to make one of these and with her simple step, by step instructions even me who is challenged in more ways than I care to admit could make one...  I'm impressed!  Thanks for the great instructions.  Will enter both of my creations in their challenge this week.  It is sentiments and you have several chances to win some great prizes..  Hurry on over, you still have a couple days.

I think I made this card for hubby for Valentine's Day, but am not sure as I'm thinking it might be a bit too girly???  What do you think? 

Oops!  Sorry I said this was going to be a short post didn't I?

Two gorgeous creations Sally and I'm sure your husband will love the word book, it is for valentines day and pink/red are the colours so not girly at all. Hope you get your computer sorted soon without too much damage to your purse lol. Donna x

Ooohh Sally your WordArt Book is amazing :) I'm so pleased you liked my tutorial and found it easy to follow - makes it all worth while :)
I love the papers you've used on the pages and the detail you've added to the spine :)

Your card is fab too - I love the paper and the sentiment is great.
