Merry Christmas Winter Deer Sweater Tag & Daisy the Elf

Click here for Guest Design DLART Vintage Bottle Brush Be Merry Card.

Upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Was hesitant at first to upgrade. Daughter upgraded first and had Windows 7. She turned off most of the options, had some issues with speed for games she plays and with browser. She used Google Chrome browser and Windows 10 did not allow. Did not like Corona browser. She found a browser named Opera that allows her to inferface with Google Chrome browser.  Hubby upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. When he had bought new PC with 8.1 he was able to make the screen look like Windows 7. He turned off most of all the options. The download took 30 mins. The install took 2+ hrs. After hubby did his install he told me to choose Custom instead of Express. Custom allows you to turn off settings and have it look like Windows 7 and not Windows 10 with the Apps on screen like a phone has. I used Mozilla Firefox browser and had to reset my default browser to Mozilla Firefox. Have some issues to resolve with a photo program I use and will work on that. 

Made this Tag with a Deer Sweater theme. Daisy the Elf came by for photo opp wearing a sweater that the Polar Bear in the picture loaned her the CheeseCake Factory sweater. I had a sweater for Daisy the Elf that I had found when I was moving stuff from rental storage to Tuff Shed in our yard but cannot find the sweater so instead used the CheeseCake Factory sweater.

  2. Beautiful tag and I like Daisy's sweater! My elf wears the same clothes day in and day out - I think Daisy is much more fashion conscious than my Eli!

  3. Very cute tag! Love the sweater ribbon. Thanks for joining the CDD Christmas Linky Party DT Jessica

  4. Nice that Polar Bear shared his sweater with Daisy. Looks good on her so he might not get it back!!! Great tag.

  5. Your tag is very beautiful !
    Thank you for joining us at Craftyhazelnuts!
    Good Luck and hope to see you again.

  6. Very nice tag. Thank you for joining us at One Stitch At A Time AG with Winter Challenge.

  7. Thank you for sharing you info on the windows 10 download. My hubby just downloaded it the other day and now his computer is not responding at all. Had to take it in to get it fixed. I keep resisting the download I've heard so many horrible stories. Husband told me that they are doing away with Internet Explorer and that's why you can't use it with windows 10. That's what the computer guy explained to him at Best Buy.
    Thanks again

  8. Thanks for sharing your tag in Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -
    Thanks also for sharing your Windows 10 experience with us ,.. I have put it on my Virtual Machine (on my Mac) but haven't had a chance to "play" yet; I have resisted the (rather insistent if you ask me!) prompts to upgrade on my laptop, I'll wait until I've worked it out - or I'm forced into it, lol, Donna ☺

  9. Thanks for entering both of my CHNC challenges with your lovely crafting - hope to see you again soon. x

  10. Cute tag! Love the ribbon! Been putting off the updates.... I tend to hate them. Thanks for joining our Craftin Desert Diva's Christmas Linky Party!
