Three in one - Not managed that for a while !!

Before I start this post I would like to apologise for my absence the past few days - computer problems. OK on my own blog, but everytime I moved off IT started downloading everything I clicked on to my desktop ARGHHHH!!! Alternatively on the rare occasion I managed to leave a comment IT would then email me with every comment left on that post after mine .
I have downloaded a lot of my programmes onto my laptop now (it has Windows Vista - which doesn't like some of my programmes and I don't like Window Vista much either)
but I have managed to connect it to the internet (via a million miles of wire - should have got wireless) so hopefully at least one of them will work for me. I'd also like the thank the lovely Lora for offering her boyfriends service to help me sort out my computer. Hopefully hunny I won't need him now - but who knows - anyway thanks a million for that.

Well that's enough waffling - hope you're all enjoying the fabulous weather this weekend.

I used the Double Dutch Sketch, the Creative Card Crew's pretty flowers and Just Magnolia's Animals or Insects. The papers are HOTP Retro as is the Basic cardstock. The image (curtesty of the fabulous Tab) The dragonfly stamps (one I've had for ever) is stamped on vellum and heat embossed with pearl plum and pearl bue powder and I added a little drangonfly charm to the flower. The flowers themselves are a mixture and the leaves cut with the Leone Em ash branch punch.

Ooops - forgot to photo the inside again.
I've been back and photographed the inside - not that it's anything exciting!!

Gosh I thought you'd bought the dragonflies as ready made embellies - they're so gorgeous! You could go into business making them and I would buy some!!
Love your sweet card and the gorgeous Tilda you've used - so sweet!
Isn't it weird that we've had no BG or CC this weekend - someone out there must have known it was going to be too sunny to craft, lol! xx

Another beautiful card, Heather. I love the soft brown surrounding your Tilda...it gives her a soft antique-y look. Very pretty!

Lora said...

Love that Tilda and the dragonflies are beautiful.

Heather,
I think the bizzarre computer blunders are Blogger-exclusive. These past few weeks have been a mess, leaving a comment has been impossible because my computer "terminates" the page. The ones that did open, they would open 30+ times and lock my computer. It only happens on this site, so I have to insist... it's blogger. A fellow blogger thinks it's gadget related so for a while I removed my gadgets. I kept the image from my pc off my page but have since reloaded the followers gadget and can now visit the majority of pages without problems, although there are the occasional 30+ page incidences. I don't know if any of that is related or just coincidence but maybe my blogger horrors sound familiar?? Anyhoo....

Lovin' all the fun details on this multi-challenge. The dragonflies are adorable and lovin' the flocked sheep. The hybrid flower, complete with pearls, is beautiful!! A great way to start my morning, gazing at Heather's creations!!
