Wobbling Again!!!

No, not me this time (although I am as well, to be fair), but I mean the flipping computer AGAIN!! I'm sure the lad in our IT department will be thinking I fancy him or something - I am practically stalking him at the mo. This is the new one so I do not know what I am doing that is causing this!!

But I managed to get this on here, just about, although the photo editing is as fantastic as ever due to
a)crap light
b) crap operator (moi) and
c) the pc threatening to commit suicide at any moment

But we got there and as it's Tuesday, it's time for another Papertake Weekly Challenge and this week it's time to say Thank You. I'm sponsoring it this week and there is a £10 voucher up for grabs to spend any way you choose at Dies To Die For plus some fab cardage from the talented peeps that are our DT girlies :)

So this is me card.

Ohh these are awkward little beggars to photograph aren't they (easel cards that is), although they do look nice. I've used a H&S image which was given to me by a very lovely girlie but I better not name her cos I don't want her to get inundated or anything xxx.

I used the old PMs but if you think my little Hanglar girl is looking a bit anaemic, it's because my 'blush' pen is just about ready for the knackers yard and believe me peeps, I know how it feels right now cos I have one of them there viral weirdies again.

It's not going too well is it lol xxx

The papers are from my fave Pink Petticoat Little Fleurs download which is sadly retired, but I just love it. It was one of the first PP things I ever bought and I keep going back to it cos it is so fab.

The little heart is a Sissix thing - one that you bash with a hammer, and once again I used my MSBP to give a bit of shape to the layers.

No dodgy angle pic but I put this one in so you can see the other MSBP I used. The sentiment is a wobbly computer generated one.

So that's it for today. I have a mountain of work to do, a bracelet to make, prezzies to wrap and the brandy butter and cranbery sauce to prepare.

Now if anyone knows where the brush is ..........

Oh and it's Kyla's nativity play tonight, so I have lots of tissues ready. She is the little donkey this year, awww!!! I have to say that it is one of the highlights of Christmas for me and I sooo look forward to going, even though I always cry.

In case I don't post again before the 25th, have a fabbydoodles Christmas and I hope you get shed loads of goodies.

Chrimbly hugs to all xxx
