Hi all...Being somewhat stranded in the boondocks, this is the best way I know to pick a lot of people's brains, so here goes:

1. Do any of you use software to make your own greeting cards? If so, which ones? My old product does not translate to the new OS. I bought a new one from Hallmark/Target and that one was total junk, again not working on my computer. I'd really like to save some money and make some cards.

2. Fitbit "ONE" users: Do you have problems keeping the little hard plastic end on your cover? Mine fell off several times, and this time not to be found. So I put strapping/duct take on the end -- but it scratches! The metal end will ruin clothing and dig in skin, too. For the life of me, I cannot figure out WHY this little end piece has to be separate, at all! Design flaw, IMO. Yes, I can order a new protective cover, but why spend $10 if I don't have to? So, just to give you all a heads up, the end piece may fall off!

Thank you for any input you have on these points!! SparkPeople are the best!

    Doesn't your computer have some already built into the software system? I think it would be in that template section where you find things like resume; banners; cover letters; things like that. I know one of my sisters showed be that section when we send out the invitations for one of the family members weddings and the thank you cards. Not sure if you find it in the Microsoft Word section or what. I hope this much is a start to finding what you need???

    Hi kiddo, I use printmaster....got it years ago at Sam's club it's actually for a really old version of windows and I had to click on the compatibility mode on my desktop which...LOL is also really old...running XP on the desktop...LOL

    Not knowing for sure what you're working with but here's a possible suggestion....on HP.com they have projects you can do....cards are part of that....maybe something like that will work?

    I'm sorry I can't help with the greeting card questions. However, my fitbit cover sort of disintegrates over time (I've only had it 3 months). I guess from clipping and unclipping it so many times. I just ordered 2 extra-1 to replace the broken one and one to have on hand in case it happens again. I didn't want to spend the $ either, but it doesn't stay clipped as well as it is and I have lost it once! Retracked my steps with my daughter and found in the parking lot of the grocery store. Pouring down rain, but not run over and still works fine. For me it was worth it to order the covers and not lost the fitbit itself again. I'm going to try to be more careful taking it on and off so hopefully it will stay in one piece this time.
