Hallelujah, I am back online!

Friday night McAfee did an update for the security software I have on my laptop.  By Saturday morning - NO INTERNET!  At first I didn't realize McAfee was the culprit and I spent several hours researching and talking to Verizon technical support.  I thought for sure my WiFi card was bad and went out to buy a new one and when that didn't work I realized that there was probably a software issue that was blocking my Internet access.  Long story, short it was some update that McAfee did, so I have temporarily disabled it so that I can get back online and get back to my blogging "business."

I made this card yesterday for the latest sketch challenge at retro sketches and also decided to add in the color challenge for Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary challenges that have been going on all week.

The DSP is from Woodland Walk which features Garden Green and Chocolate Chip.  The flowers are stamped in Regal Rose because I had a brad to match (!) and also because all my other pinks looked too washed out.  All the stamps that I used are Verve, which are not required for their challenge, but since it's their anniversary I thought it only fitting!

Well, I'm off to do some other things online before I re-install my security suite and see if that messes things up again.  Luckily I've been able to get online with my iPad so I could at least keep up with blog visits and commenting.  I tried to see if I could post to my blog using Safari, but I couldn't (the page didn't display correctly) and the Blogger app is total junk (IMHO).  I've got four blogs and no matter how many times I switched blogs on the app, it would only let me do a post to one of them (and it wasn't this one)!

Thanks for listening to my rant and for stopping by!
