Not Happy and very happy all together....

Well what a day I had yesterday with my PC, It cost my hubby  over two hundred pounds to put right Via DELL back in Feb and now its given up the ghost again. First i started seeing error messages to do with Virtual Memory, this went on for a couple of days and then blue screens, and now it won't even start up in safe mode or any other mode. I got so frustrated with it that I now have ordered a new Samsung R580 Laptop which has cost a small fortune, but hopefully it will be an end to all my PC problems....I can't wait for it to be delivered.

Here is what it Looks like:

Challenge 4

This weeks Challenge for Just inspirational Challenges is to use a digi image by Delicious Doodles and I chose the Puppy in a Present Box.

 
I imported the digi image into SCAL and converted it to an SVG file. I separated the layers so that i could paper piece them together. The papers are from a freebie pack in the Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine August issue 81 and Provocraft.
I used a Martha Stewart punch, some Crystal Glamour Dust, some mirri board and some ribbon from my stash.

Some lovely Prima Lilies, some heart gems by CraftyBitz and some faux brads from craftworkcards.

Wow this week has gone so quick and we're now about to start the new challenge for Just Inspirational Challenges. We have a colour challenge this week for you and it's:
 
Pink, Cream and Brown with Ribbon, Buttons/gems and glitter.

Lothian Crafts are to sponsor our challenge this time. Rachel will get back to us with the prize.


Here is my Challenge 2 card. For this i used Stazon-Timber Brown and Archival Ink - Coffee ink pads to cover the surface of the base card. I printed off checkered pink and brown paper from Barely Mine Extreme CD Rom and punched it with the Martha Stewart Scalloped Lacey Punch. The tree/sentiments stamps are from Pollycraft and was stamped in the Archival Ink in Coffee colour and coloured it with Copics. The image is from Magnolia but can't remember her name I also coloured her with Copics. The Ribbon is from C & C, the gems were from a craft class I went to. Finally I glittered the heart on the tree with Glamour Dust.
