Hi! Lindsay's Stamp Stuff DT Post

** edited - My LSS DT post is a day early. I have been on vacation all week with my family and got my days confused. On Thursday, the rest of the DT will have their posts up at the normal time.

My family and I took a trip to Washington D.C. and then went to visit my aunt and uncle in Virginia. Boy, it was HOT! I don't think I have ever been so hot for so long in my life. My aunt and uncle run a fabulous B&B right on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia. If you are looking for a romantic vacation, you can check it out HERE. There is lots to do and amazingly beautiful scenery.

Now onto my project for this week. (end of edit**) I tried to branch out and make a card in a style a little different than my usual and this is what I came up with. I think it is good to try to get out of your comfort zone once in awhile. I like this card because it used up a lot of scraps and that it can be sent to OWH. It is flat enough to easily mail and is generic enough to be used for men or women. If I was to redo it, I would cut the letters out of chipboard or felt to give it more dimension and texture.



Here is a peek at the entire set.





Thank you for looking! Please stop by the blogs of the rest of the DT to see what they have created. Lindsay will have a little freebie for you on her blog too.

i have kaspersky virus protection 2010 and under "my protection" it says it has detected 20 trojans. I did a full scan which took about 2 and a half hours, and nothing happened. it still says i have 20 trojans. What do i do to get rid of them?
