Well...still having laptop problems and will not be buying from Dell again. I have a replacement for my brand new one on its way, so I'll have to set that all up (that'll take days with all my craft stuff, lol) and keep my fingers crossed that it will be ok. It's not been much fun, and I did have to really push Dell into giving me a replacement, so I'm not impressed. Anyway...with luck all those problems will be sorted.
And in 'other ways' things are being sorted and we'll be making some massive changes in the coming months which both me and my little boy are really looking forward to.
But...to what this blog's all about...cards!
I have done a few cards today, but I want to blog about a card I made for one of my best friends from her daughter for Mother's Day. So here it is:
I've used my Martha Stewart Punches technique (see tutorial page) to make the lacy edged easel card base, and used papers and image from the Joanna Sheen CD...and colour picked from the image to make sure the matting layers match perfectly. The flowers are from Wild Orchid, and the faux pearls are from my stash.
Simple yet effective and I love it as the picture is so gentle. Just thought...if Sue reads this she might think I chose this image for her because she's so gentle, but no...it's because she's a bit of a donkey! Lol. She won't mind me saying that as we've been mates since primary school and that's how we are. We hadn't seen each other for a few decades until last autumn, but as soon as we met up again we were right in there with the insults, lol.
Right...on with more crafting and on with the blog! Sorry for neglecting you but things are getting better. Lots of changes are coming and things might be higgeldy piggeldy for a few months, but then you'll all be sick of the site of me as I'll be blogging so much!
Big hugs to all of you and thank you for all the good wishes and for bearing with me.
