Thought for the day -

Good morning! So I was wondering if everyone out there is as computer saavy as I am, lol. I have been having issues with my camera and computer for the last couple of days. For some reason my computer and camera are no longer speaking! I plug my camera into my computer with an usb cable and nothing happens. So, I uninstall my camera program and try reinstalling....this takes forever to download! Nothing! So I decide to google my question and I get lots of responses. Maybe it's the cable....maybe it's the computer. One suggestion says to restore my computer going back a few days...try this and nothing. So now it is 21/2 hrs later and still I can't download my pictures.

Another response I found is to buy a memory card reader that plugs into the computer. Really!I didn't even know they made these. So I thought ok that's what I will do on Saturday...though I really don't want to pay for more stuff. I decide to try googling my question again-reworded. Finally! I find a one sentence answer- the guy that responded to this persons question probably was going DUH! Plug your memory card directly into your computer! I didn't even know that was an option! It worked!! This process is much faster than the usb cable way! Lesson learned and no money spent! Did I just hear a collective voice of Duh's?! HAHA

So now I have a card for you! My card is for this weeks challenge at the Midnight Madness sketch challenge blog. I only recently started playing their challenges and love their sketches!! Here is this weeks sketch:

And here is my card:

I had in mind making a thanksgiving card with this image of Mummu but when I saw this gorgeus paper I decided to use it instead. This is still a thanksgiving card, for my mother, though not in the traditional fall colors. When you think of thanksgiving don't you also think of food! Mummu is going to have a very elegant thanksgiving dinner!

Cardstock - Bazzil
DP-Graphics 45, Domestic Goddess
Ribbon-American Crafts
Image- Mo's Digital Pencil
Charms & embellies- ?? (in stash)

Be sure to visit Midnight Madness for this weeks challenge and to check out their blog hop. All the design team members have put together some really awesome fall crafts!

Enjoy your weekend!

So sorry about your computer camera problem, so frustrating. I use that cable also but I also can put my memory chip into the hard drive, the hard drive already has this, you may not have to buy anything else.

YUck - hate problems like that.

Love your Midnight Madness card, so glad you are able to show us, Thanks for playing and hope you will again.
