Sketch Saturday

I've dug out my Hanglars, I was sent a whole heap of images by a friend about 18 months ago and have used them only sparingly thinking I wouldn't be able to get any more. Stupid - I know - what's the point of having them if you don't use them. Now they are more readily available I feel I really should start using them.


I've actually managed another challenge, I can't tell you how great it is being able to see pictures on blogs again and what a difference it makes being able to comment once more. So much time wasted trying to find blogs where I could actually see a card. I could never see mine on the House Mouse blog and even emailed Christine to have a look and tell me if it was there.



I've followed the great sketch over at Sketch Saturday for this one.  The papers are a download from Designs by Krista (link in sidebar). I used the curved rectangles nesties for both the image and the sentiment which is Motivet, the borders are cut with a MS punch, the hydrangea flowers are Prima and annoy me immensly as they always look so dark in photographs and they're not!! The central roses are from Wild Orchid and the leaves cut with a Woodware punch. I was itching to add more embellishments but resisted, although I still think it needs something in the top left-hand corner. I think that's it for this one.

Gorgeous as ever Heather - love those soft colours.

How did you cure the computer? I remember a few other people had the same problem, and it would be useful to know how you sorted it out?
