Grrrr to technology!!


I really do hate computers.  My laptop broke again, so I've had very limited access to the internet for the last two weeks - which was a nightmare. I even managed to delete comments on our DT blog trying to use blogger on my mobile, (sorry about that girls!) Every time it goes away to be fixed I hope they'll just tell me I can have a new one - but they never do.  In the mean time I must must must remember to keep my hard drive backed up as we had to make a mad dash over to a friends house to have the hard drive copied before we sent it away for repair.

Anyway I've made loads of cards recently and plan to share them with you all over the next couple of weeks, here's the first one. This card is for my Niece, she was 11 a week or so ago.  I had great fun shopping for her birthday present as I bought her a load of a card making things!

I treated myself to a couple of Lili of the Valley Stamps - I've stayed away from stamping as all my efforts previously have been rubbish.  This is stamped quite nicely, even if I did use a somewhat unorthodox method of stamping.  I even surprised myself with the results.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft - Two's company
The Paper Shelter - Charming (there is a little ladybird, but it's just hiding behind the bow!)
Woopsi Daisy - Birthdays
Lollypop Crafts - Happy Birthday
Creative Craft Challenges - Three - three pearls.
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Flowers and Embossing
Craft Us Crazy - Children / And or Fall
Southern Girls - Tie a ribbon around it

That's for night, tonight I'm planning to catch up on my Design Team commenting - I love seeing what people have made, and then I'm going to catch up with all the lovely blogs I follow over the next couple of days.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Julie, I can totally sympathize with the computer problems as my main computer hasn't worked correctly for over 2 weeks and now I also detest computers! Your card is gorgeous, wonderful colors and coloring and awesome job using the stamp (I also have many issues getting a nice clear image from my rubber stamps). Thanks so much for playing at WHOOPSI DAISY! Hugs my friend:)
