A windy good afternoon
What a couple of days again !!! I tried to download Skype on Friday night and got halfway there... then on Saturday morning when I turned on the computer, up popped a blue screen with a warning and off it all went. I was almost in tears as I have bought an external hard drive to copy my stuff on to and I am frightened to use it, technical I am not!! I blame Aunty Sue for not coming down to help me lol.....Anyway, I unplugged it and took it to my nice man, he promised to try and get it going before he closed... and he did. seems it was the internet card or some such, that very rarely goes, whatever, it cost me £48.00 !!! between the car and the computer, I am almost bankrupt!
Today I am showing you a card I made for my friend in Blackpool ( yes girls, I do have a friend)! I am also going to apologize in advance for the naff quality of the pics.It was just coming daylight and I had to get it in the post early, for birthday Monday. I would also like to say a big thanks to Lee(craftyloops) for her excellent tutorial on making these yo yo flowers, they are beautiful in real life, especially the cream and gold one.
I decorated the inside to match...again this gave me problems, I have had my Kodak printer for 3 months but cannot get it to print true colours, I tried to scan my green paper to give me enough for inside but it came out blue! and these are genuine inks that came with the printer.
white doily coated in glitter (which does not show up)
Sugar Nellie 'Victoria'
coloured with promarkers
skeleton leaves under cream flower from stash
green flower made from organzi (not so dark in real life)
pearls, gems and small sentiment from stash
round sentiment from LOTV (not fuzzy in real life lol)
