I Hate McAfee But I Do Love Tilda xxx

Picture 003 copy

And how could you not love her.

But I tell you peeps, I was nearly up the wall with this computer, and for once it wasn't me or anything I'd done, unlike most of my techie issues!! Yes, I realise you will find that hard to believe but tis true.

So thanks to Mr  McAfee who is supposed to look after me, I was late getting this to Bev so it won’t appear on the Just Magnolia blog until later – grrrrr!!! More in a sec.

But first,  I have to say a HUGE thank you to everybody who left me comments and joined in my mystery blog candy. And without further ado, the winner is - drum roll …….

Doc1 The early birdie got the candy box lol xxx

Yes FIONA it’s you my love so please drop me an e-mail with your snail mail addy and a nice shiny pink box will be on it’s way you  xxx

So this week we have another treat for you over at Just Magnolia Challenge  because our challenge is Anything Goes. So you can do anything you want and as long as you include a fab Magnolia image, you could be in with a shout for an blooming awesome prize.

We are sponsored this week by the lovely peeps that are Paul and Siri at

And get a load of the prize -

Hw completely FAB!!

All the JM girls  have used some Wild Orchid Crafts loveliness in their work and if you get a sec, nip over and check it all out.

Re my card, I thought I’d do the pics first and then the shopping list and Copics colours etc at the end again. I think maybe it makes it easier to see what’s what and it won’t get bogged down by a shed load of my inane waffle etc lol xxx

So, here’s the pics -

Picture 005 copy

Tilda was coloured with Copics in the following shades – BG0000, BG01, BG10, BV0000, BV00, BV02, C0000, E0000, E00, E21, E31, E50, E53, R20. Copics and Martha Stewarts Doily Punch are available from the always wonderful Tracy over at Dies To Die For. Blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls are from The Hobby House. 

I got the papers in a sale somewhere and I’ve had then ages., The only clue on the pack is that they are Innovations Craft Accessories by the Salco Group. So not much help I’m sorry and the same with the ribbon cos that is another randomer that was just lurking about.

Now this  *~£&”_??^&$ McAfee thing

I hope that not too many of you were affected by it cos loads were. Apparently it sends out automatic updates and one of these updates that went out did something to the program files on your computer. So one minute it was OK and the next it kept shutting itself down and re-booting, over and over again. I was doing me best to stop it but to no avail and I was starting to panic a bit because earlier on I had tried to download some egg incubation free trial prog for Richard and I git a message saying it couldn't be verified, so I stopped the download straight away. That will teach me, but in my defence I was only trying to help him (your Honour!!)

So I really thought it was me.

What a relief therefore when our IT boys said it wasn’t. And that is something they don’t say very often, poor beggars, cos it usually IS me.

Anyway we are all sorted now :) So on that positive note, I’ll say tarra and see you soon.  I hope you have a fab day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Hiya chick..
You know what I love about your and your cards DawnyP?
They don't look like every other Tilda card in the magazine! Now I am a Tilda fan, really, don't think that I'm not..but do you not think that they are all beginning to look the same. The very soft almost not really coloured in look, the embellishments are all very similar. You have kept your fresh white pastel style and not gone all 'antique and ochre' and I salute you!
