Someone Hijacked My Email Account!!! - and a Graduation Card

Yesterday after church I checked my email account only to find a bunch of "Undeliverable Mail" messages. Upon investigation I discovered that my email account had been hijacked.  After a few Google searches I realized that the only thing I could do to remedy this situation is to change my password.  Some experts actually recommend changing passwords on all online accounts.  Yikes!  So I apologize in advance if you got some weird links on how to purchase Viagra, how to remove unwanted facial hair or how to find hot chicks.  It really wasn't me.

Good things have happened since my hijacking experience.  I got to clean out my contact list.  And I reconnected with a few people I hadn't heard from in a while.  This is also a good reminder for all of us to periodically change our passwords.  Yes, it's a pain to do (I keep typing my old password wondering why I can't access my email.)  But it might save you from having this bad experience.  Not sure if I'll have negative long-term effects from the hijacking or not.  I'll keep you posted on it.

I made this card a few weeks ago, but didn't post it until now.  Although most graduates have already accepted their diplomas, many graduation parties are held throughout the summer.  I hope you find this card inspirational:

I got the inspiration for this card from Lorri Heiling.  The wings of the owl are made with the Scallop Oval punch.  The top of the hat was cut by hand and the part resting on the owl's head was cut with the Curly Label punch.  You could personalize these card to match school colors.  I made several of these cards for my mom to give to graduates.  My sister needed one, too.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Basic Gray, Jet Black StazOn
Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice textured impressions embossing folder, Two-Step Owl punch, Scallop Oval punch, Curly Label punch, stamp-a-ma-jig, 1/8" Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon, copy paper (for the diploma), glue dots, dimensionals

Happy Stamping!

Susan, it happens so often that when we receive something from you or anyone else that just doesn't "sit right" with us, we disregard it. Last year I lost my computer to viruses three times and finally switched to Mac which never gets a virus and I've only had one popup in the last 7 months. Peace!

And thanks for the really cute card to CASE! ;)

This looks great, thanks for the idea!
I found you on SC and have added myself as a follower, hoping you'll do the same for me!
