Lovely Lilac :)

Hi there peeps and what a few days it’s been!!!

I had to have a new pc last week re the XP thing and it seemed so straightforward just to move everything from one pc to another but oh no!!! As I’m using things, I’m finding little snags that seem to take forever to sort ie photo editing software that won’t behave itself, Livewriter insisting on installing everything but the kitchen sink despite me asking, nay pleading with it not to.


Anyway I think I’m almost done but no doubt one or two more things will come along just to take away the smug feeling I’m starting to have.

So back to yesterday and here is my card for this week’s Papertake challenge which is

White + 1

and ….


… this is what I did.

I used one of these …..


… new Lili of The Valley Solids Paper Pads and this one is Promises.
I think these are fabulous and they work really well with the paper pads of the same name – perfect for matting and layering.

But they also work well by themselves and I made some different types of flowers and just dotted them about.

The papers have a slightly ‘texture’ to them which stops them being very plain – I like that.

Here’s a close up of the blooms ….


The sweet little pearls are from The Ribbon Girl and clicking that link will take you to the right place in the shop.

They're precious  :)



So that’s me done and if you get a sec, do nip and check out the challenge me darlins.
We have a brand new and very fab sponsor as well so it’s all good.

I'm so sorry for the quickie today but there’s still stuff to sort out and I'm running out of time rapidly.
Have a fab day and I‘ll see you soon as soon.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Whatever you do Dawny, DON'T upgrade to 8.1 as it will screw most of your programmes up.
I have just had mine back to PC world to revert back to windows 8 as mine was rejecting everything.
I too have to start from scratch as everything has been removed back to factory settings.
Good luck

Whatever you do DON'T upgrade to 8.1 as it will cause a lot of problems.
I have just picked mine back up from PC World this morning as they have had to put the laptop back to factory settings.
I too have lost everything & need to reload all my programmes on again.
But at least at will accept my craft cd's now
See you soon

My favourite colour! Just beautiful, Dawny! The die cut flowers look amazing! I love these new papers too and how they are not really ‘plain’. I had to buy all three of course! xx
