  1. Lol, your post has made me laugh this morning Hahahaha! Love this card, the colours on the thistles are super, have a great day, see ya tomorrow as long as I servive today lol xx Zoe xx

  2. Oh dear! Sounds like you might want to jump out of those 10 Windows; the time & trouble it's taking to set up that new laptop. Barbara must have loved this card; it's such a beautiful card, wish I had just a pinch of your creative ability with colour...yours always looks so striking or beautiful. Could I ask where you get your cotton watercolour card from?
    Hope you have an enjoyable weekend too, especially with Group 2 of your workshops. Xx

  3. Dear Eileen,
    after 3 laptops 'died' on me, I've learnt my lesson - get a MASSIVE back up box and USE IT!! You won't be sorry. I've no time to be an IT manager as well as everything else.
    I love that you can show new ways of using some of my favourite stamps like this. I've just organised all my Lavinia stamps (first job of retirement!) more so I can file them away rather than find them. They look so neat now.
    Hope you are well.

  4. Really a beautiful composition.
    Big hugs Anja

  7. Hello Eileen, What a stunning card. I've only just got used to Windows 8 - not sure I can start again. I love that magic cloud where all my stuff flies to get backed up every night. Definitely worth setting up when things go wrong. Have a lovely weekend. xx
