Miss Lola da Vinci Meets PTW :)

Yes, here she is. She is Miss Lola da Vinci and she is one of the new Kraftin Kimmie images.

Kimmie is this week's sponsor over at Papertake Weekly, and not only do we have the usual fabby team cards, but Kim and 2 of her girlies have joined us for the challenge as well, so do nip over and check it all out when you get a sec lovelies.

It's wall to wall gorgeousness over there :)

Not only that, but if you fancy joining us for a spot of Papertake GDT-ing, then the details are there as well

So this week, it's time for another sketch .....

It's this little fella....

... and here is what I did with it.

It's another card for a special friend - the same special friend as the last card on here, but I had a mishap with that card so I couldn't send it to her.

She won't be at all surprised to know this cos she knows what a ditzy thing I am and she knows I have dozey mare-itus at the best of times lol xx

Anyhoos, I coloured Miss Lola with PMs and there is the teeniest bit go bling - I wasn't going to do it, but I just couldn't help meself lol xxxx I am addicted to the stuff - maybe I need a bit of bling avesion therapy!!!!

The papers are a selection of MME which are all available from the fabulousness that is Tracy at Dies To Die For. I am getting addicted to these papers as well!!!

The 'hangs head in shame' sentiment is from PP's Tiny Tags and the brad is a randomer from my stash box.

The ribbon is Poppicrafts and I did the coloured twine thing yet again!!!

There's a fair old bit of dimension going on here.

Well we are limping on here but the puter is still seriously unwell and I am having to get a new tower sent up. I have had major probs I really have and I might well end up losing all my papers and downloads.

If that happens I will cry buckets, like real snotty boo hoo cries, I really will.

This has all happened because I picked something up from someone's blog - don't know which one and they are probably not aware that there is a prob. But it's gotten hold of the hard drive and is not responding to any of the usual anti-virus stuff.

So peeps please be careful.

As as result, I am at the moment not able to visit any blogs or leave comments so the hugest apologies to everyone - I feel so bad about that I really do, but until we have this sorted, or until I work out how to use my phone to blog, I dare not take the risk.

So please bear with me lovelies xxx
You are out of sight at the mo but definately not out of mind xxx

It's been a dreadful few days and it wasn't helped by Miss Kyla pressing the defrost button on the freezer last week !!!!!. We found out on Sunday when I went to get something out of there and found a soggy mess. Richard, bless his heart (and I very nearly did), saw her do it but didn't realise that it was the defrost button.

(major expletives uttered but I won't repeat what I said cos you will only think I am a potty mouth!!).

But you can imagine the scene in our kitchen when this was going on.

On the plus side, we have an empty freezer now, ready to be filled with all manor of yumminess for Christmas. And in the great scheme of things, I guess it isn't that important.

And I will probably laugh about it one day soon.!!

Are you watching I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here?
Ohh wasn't it sad when Gorgeous George left!! And how sweet is Justin!! We think that Gino will probably win - and he is soooo funny!! His filthy dirty chocolate cake thing had us in fits last night.

On that note, my (very large) stomach is thinking that my throat has been cut cos I haven't had me lunch yet, so I am off for some grub. Hope you are all OK and speak soon.

Mahoosive hugs xxxxx

Beautiful zingy card Dawny, love those fresh colours. SO lovely after seeing xmas on my desk for weeks!

Sorry to hear about puter probs, there is nothing worse.

Gino to win! George was a darling tho! Kim is so acting up! Methinks that she is Tony Gordon's (corrie) Mum - they share the same gaze thing! lol
