Not a Happy Friday !



Good Morning Everyone, Its Friday and I am devastated!!!! Last night I was on my computer and the weirdest thing happened. My computer started being attacked and I started losing files..It was the craziest thing I have ever seen. I shut down and rebooted and I couldn't even barely get it to start. Once I was able I did a system recovery to get things working again, but I LOST ALL MY FILES!!!! I mean all my files, all my digis, all my pictures, all my favorites, EVERYTHING. I am completely freaking out!!! Luckily I emailed this card I am sharing today to the owner Jackie at Inky Antics. That was my only life saver for the day!!! I am working today, then taking my computer to the GEEK SQUAD and pray they can recover what I have lost!!! This has to be the worst day ever! Please say a small prayer that my files will be recovered. To lose so much money in digi files, along with my family pictures is so heart breaking!!! I will keep you updated and let you know if the Geek Squad works for me!!!


Well I vented for today and truly a bit in tears :( So getting to my creation. I used this absolutely ADORABLE Inky Antics image...I just love these darling chef gals, and they have the BEST sentiments to match!! Come check out the Inky Store here for some fabulous stamps!!!! This creation I also made for the POM challenge over at Outlawz!! This weeks challenge is to try something new along with no alcohol markers. Hope you enjoy my creation today!!!

For my creation today and to try something NEW I used a fabulous new die from Sizzix to make my own 3-D Flower!!! I also colored my image with prisma pencils and gamsol.


Thanks so much for stopping by today, Have a great day everyone!!!!

OMG Crystal that is awful and my worse nightmare. I am so bad about backing up my stuff but I will be doing it now. I hope they can restore your files.

Hi I am so much feeling with you - hope they can restore the files for you. I got an extra harddisk for Xmas and think today is the day for using it. My best wishes for you.

Marilyn said...

OMG.. that is terrible! That scared me enough so that I am doing a backup right now. I get so slack about backing up & must get better about it. I hope they can recover your files.

*Vicki* said...

OH NOOOO!! Crystal that is horrible!! I'm so very sorry about your computer hun and I will be saying a prayer for you that you DID NOT loose anything important!! (I hope you get a removable drive to save on in the future..they're so worth it!! My mom had same thing happen to her genealogy things!)

Your card is just as cute as can be hun!! LOVE the sweet image and your coloring looks amazing!! :) I hope you have a good weekend girlfriend!! BIG HUGS AND SMILES!! Vicki

Monique said...

Oh Crystal this is a horrible way to start your Friday... Maybe if you call the computer shop they have a way of going into the computer hard drive deeper... I sure hope it all works out... oh boy :( Big Hugs Monique

Patti J said...

Crystal, I am so very sorry! As you know, I've been there and done that. I now have a stand alone hard drive that backs up my ENTIRE computer every night at 1:00 a.m. You might talk to them about that. The cost was very minimal ($100 or so) compared to losing everything. Hopefully the 'squad' will get your files back! Your card is totally adorable! What fun you had with that image and layout - I can tell!!! Great job, my friend - keep us posted!

Sabrina aka okimom2girlz said...

Oh no, Crystal, sweet friend, I am so sorry!!! My hubby bought me an external hard drive thingy called "book" and I am supposed to put all my pictures and stuff on it, but hearing about your attack, I guess I'd better do that!! Your card is absolutely stunning and your coloring...sigh...so awesome!! Sending you hugs, Sabrina

Kerri said...

Oh my goodness, Crystal, I cannot imagine!!! Please keep us up to date, and I will be praying that they can recover your files and pictures!!! Your card is so super cute, girl. I love that sweet image:)

Julia Aston said...

Oh my goodness Crystal - a stampers worst nightmare!! I hope they are able to retrieve your files for you! So glad you could share this sweet little image! Hope your weekend gets better than today dear friend!

Amy Johnson said...

How awful! I'm just waiting for my computer to crash. It's been acting up too. I know I should have a hard copy of all my digis, and I do for some, but not all. It's so time consuming. Let me know if that Geek Squad lives up to its name!

Cute card though. Love the fun image and the baker's twine!

Sara I. said...

I would totally be freaking out, too, girl - I'll be crossing my fingers and saying a prayer that they can recover all you lost! PS - fabulous card - love the twine and papers - you really did a fabulous job!
hugs xx

Marlene said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that. Honestly if you lived near by, hubby would probably be able to figure out what went wrong and restore your files. (He's a whiz). I hope you are able to get some answers!

Your card is GORGEOUS. I hope you have a happy weekend, despite your seriously crappy day. :(

Rufus said...

Oh you poor thing! That's devastating! Sure hope that the Geek Squad can get it back for you. Will be thinking of you.

Oh my gosh Crystal, that is the worst!! I lost all I had on my last laptop and was unable to recover anything. That is just terrible.
Your card is darling, glad you were able to at least post.
Gosh, just so sorry!! Hugs, Bren

Kim Y. said...

Oh no!!I hope they can recover your files! I save all my files on an external hard drive and/or flash drive so when my pc got infected, I was safe. See if they can install that for you. Sending you hugs.
