Reasons to be Happy

I think/hope my computer's fixed at last I can now see photographs on all blogs not just a few. I'd like to say thank you to all you lovely kind people who offered me advice. I tried everything advised one at a time - nothing worked so I just tried everything all at once (fingers well and truly crossed I might add) and it seems to have worked. Perhaps it was a combination of things causing the problem. Over 3/4 months things got progressively worse until I was practically losing the will live!! So thank you all for your advice.


Second reason to be happy - I'm mobile again - the garage broke a wheel locking nut putting a new tyre on my car and it only took a month to get new ones!!! But now they (had to buy 4) arrived and installed - whoopee - I can now use my car again.

And I even finished a card I've been working on for ages - had the image and papers ready, found a fabulous sketch over at Create4fun which I flipped 90% left and use the theme of 'Buttons, bows and bling' from Simon Says.


I used one of  Eline's babies, stamped it with Versafine and coloured it with distress inks. The papers are a download, the tag cut with Spellbinders fancy tags, the gorgeous tiny buttons from Jo. and the clear ones behind them from the NEC (the Hobby House - I think), the ribbon I also bought at the NEC from Crafty Ribbons - it is a metal mesh and is great fun, you can pull it into all manner of shapes and it stays, the downside is it doesn't photograph well, it looks a lot darker than it actually is.

I think that's it from me for today, I'm looking forward to going round commenting and being able to actually see a card.
