Return Of The Piggy lol xxx

Well that really was awful peeps.
It felt like my arm was missing!!!

But it is sooo nice to be back - and on my birthday as well. Sadly my puter is very very sick indeed and is in techie hospital as we speak :( Luckily for me, there were 24 days left on the warranty so it's over to the good folk at Dell to hopefully sort it.

Not only is is riddles with nasties, but the mother board has gone as well - not good at all.

All my papers, photos and downloads etc are on there so my fingers are well and truly crossed that it all turns out ok. I haven't even started to do my Christmas cards yet so that is going to be a real mad dash once it arrives back. And if it don't get here in time, then shock horror, I might even have to BUY them this year (perish the thought!!)

I managed to get a new pc sorted but then I had probs with the photo editing software - another flippin nightmare. But we are here now, just about, and just in time for another Papertake Weekly which this week is a piggy sketch -



this one here -

And this is what I did with it.

The image is the gorgeous Sassy Suzi which is available from the fabby Tracy at Dies To Die For and I coloured her with the old fave PMs and Glamour Dust combi - some things havent changed have they!!

Still the same old pink piggy!!!

The paper is also available from DTDF and it's My Minds Eye Oh La La - Lah Dee Dah. You can see it here.





The bow and button were out of the jumble that is my stash box!!!

And here's the wonky angle pic :)

Well I am keeping this short and sweet today cos Kyla is due home any second and she is going to help me unwrap my prezzies!! I bet it has been killing her all day cos she wanted to sort it this morning but we are waitign for Nikkie to arrive first. How good am I not opening anything (well apart from my FAB prezzie from Tracy xxxxx).

Hopefully it won't be another 2 weeks or so before I'm back again so have a great evening and see you soon.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Happy Birthday!!!
I'm glad to have you back on line, I love seeing your amazing creations. I don't know how you have managed without a computer, I would loose my mind :)
Great sketch, I want to try and play along, if I can find the time, it seems to be passing too quickly lately. So much to do and not enough time to do it in.

Hi Dawny!!!! Happy Birthday!!!!!! Hope you got lots of goodies and had a grand time!! Hope everything works out with your computer. Sounds like you need to sit in Santa's lap and ask for an external hard drive. Oh my...I don't know if that sounds quite right!!! LMBO! Anyway....you know what I'm talking about! LOVE your card!!! That image is adorable and love how you've put it all together. This is a fabulous sketch and I'll be using it again! big birthday hugs!
