birthday card for my niece...

Hi all!
Hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend! I was happy to get some time in my stamp room on Friday!!! *smile*

Today is my niece, Allison's birthday *Happy Birthday Allison!*. Here is the card I made for her. I am still LOVING my Raspberry Fizz paper from PTI, so I used it for the base of the card. I am on a mission to use up my retired patterned paper this year (this is from Valentine's day 2 years ago). It is hard to see from the photo...but I cut out and colored a cake image and popped it up with a pop dot to give it some dimension.

I read an online article here about backing up your documents and photos, even if you have an external hard drive. I have heard so many horror stories of people getting a computer virus, or their hard drives crashing (including external ones) and losing everything on their computer. I have been wanting to upload all my stuff to Mozy for a while, and I am happy to report I started the process on Friday. It was pretty painless and inexpensive and well the piece of mind is great too! It will take about 2 weeks to fully back up all our stuff (I have lots of pictures and digi stuff that takes up tons of space). Once it is backed up, it will automatically back up any new stuff on a daily basis, and as long as my EHD is plugged in, it will back that up as well. It is a great feeling to know that it will do it automatically, because, well I forget! Just wanted to pass the info along, because I have heard people say, it is not is WHEN it happens.

Have a great Monday~Thanks for visiting!!!!
