Pop Up Owls!

Hello Everyone, I hope your well and your day has been good. 
We have had another nice day here, turned cold tonight though, but what can you expect when we are galloping through October.

I've had a pants day trying to get my printer to work, and all because I downloaded Windows 10, I won't bore you with all the details, but I ended up having to go back to 8.1 Windows, honestly what a palaver.  I had booked car parking at the airport and needed to print out the confirmation and the printer couldn't be found on my computer.  All nonsense, I get so stressed by things like this, and Alistair has even less computer knowledge than I have, he just stomps around shouting about nothing ever being simple.... his way of lending support and being helpful..NOT.

Anyway enough of that and on to my make for sharing today;
A little pop up box card
I've used Tattered Lace Owl dies here and First Edition papers. The sentiment die is one of Xcut little mini dies, Centura Pearl cardstock.

I would like to thank everyone who left lovely comments on my last card and to welcome Barbs who is my latest follower, I hope you continue to pop in Barbs and like what you see.

Take care of yourselves and see you soon,

Such a brilliant box card Kate, love those owl dies and the colours you have used too. Computers are fine while they are working OK but a real pain when they're not. Windows 10 has been fine for me but I have heard that others, like yourself have had problems. I hope you get sorted soon.

I resisted downloading windows 10 because I was reading that folks were having problems. I guess i will wait til they gets the bugs figured out. Sorry you had so much trouble.

This is a fabulous pop up box card Kate, lots of fabulous details and lovely colour tones.
I've heard a lot of people having printer problems with Windows 10 - fortunately my husband and youngest son sort everything out for me or I don't know what I would do.

Thanks for your lovely welcome Kate and I will certainly be back lots! I love this box card. It is absolutely gorgeous and those little owl dies are lovely. Another friend of mine got them recently too.

Sorry to her about all the palarvar with your computer. I've heard of so many the same. My hubby was an IT manager and he had problems with his emails when he downloaded Windows 10. He could send but not recieve them. He also reinstalled windows 8.

Hugs,

Hi Kate
Great pop up box and how cute are those owls!
Technology is a minefield. I had similar problems with Internet Explorer and had to revert to an older version. Thought it was supposed to make life easier lol!
Best wishes.

Oh wow Kate - I love this type of card and have no idea how to make one! Wonderful!!
My husband knows a heck a lot more about the computer than I do and has far more patience with the computer. I asked him is we should download Windows 10 and he said absolutely not. Now I know why he did not want me to download the newer version. Like I have said a thousand times. My computer hates me although I try to be as nice to it as I can.

Love your pop up box card Kate...I bought a die ages ago to make one ans still haven't used it yet! I've had a few problems with Windows 10 but nothing major, mainly been compatability problems with blogger after the updates so I've gone back to using Chrome instead of the Edge. Carol x
