PC Problems

I think I should have stayed in bed this morning! I intended making a card in order to enter the CD Sunday Challenge which has a theme of Rock Star. I found a great card on Greeting Card Factory Deluxe 10 with a funny insert as well. First of all I couldn't get the backing off my double sided tape, then it tore as I peeled it off the topper and I had to try and get my pokey tool under the topper to get at the remainder of the tape. Then when I opened the card I'd stuck the topper on the back of the card!  I then put the computer on and had just started writing this post when there was a loud BANG from outside. Hubby was cutting the grass with the electric mower (he usually uses a petrol one) and had run over the wire. Luckily he uses a current breaker so he wasn't hurt. So now thinking all my problems were sorted I turned the PC back on and tried to scan the card. It's the first time I've used the scanner since upgrading to Windows 10 and I was told the drivers needed to be installed. So I took photos of the card and inserted the SD card into the PC. The program I use to upload my photos is called Clear.fi and came preinstalled on the computer (it's an Acer product). Clear.fi isn't compatable with Windows 10! I also can't use Internet Explorer to upload photos to my blog so clicked on the Google icon........and nothing happened. I've had to uninstall and reinstall Google and it's taken me 4 hours to get this far. So I'm sorry CD Sunday ladies but I'm VERY late in entering this challenge.
Here's the card:


And the insert:


I now need to go for a lie down in a darkened room LOL!

  4. Thanks for the kind comments ladies. It didn't help that I wasn't feeling 100% yesterday and everything was a struggle as it was. Trying to work out ways around the above problems was made even more difficult as my brain wouldn't function properly.
