Round the Bend

Thats me, just as I think yay I am getting somewhere I loose connection, it takes an age to load up pages lol, then to get cannot be displayed arrrrrgh and talk about so not impressed, but I cant moan least I can get on in dribs and drabs, so hopefully I'll get to the end of this post without conking out lol. We did make it to see my sil the other day, we had to have our car jumped as the battery was as flat as a pancake, but once you got off our little road the main roads were just wet thankfully. It hammered down with rain last night, so the icy bits we have look even more icy than before ugh, I panic on that ice when the ice road truckers can fall through theres lol, wimp I am!.

This card is for both the above challenges, Papertake weekly is "Hearts and Flowers" and Colour Create is a colour scheme of Pink, Green and Brown, please forgive me for not uploading the colour cushion piccy as it is taking forever with all net probs. Heres my card:-The colour of the girl doesnt look so pink but it is, coloured with promarkers, you cant really see he intense colour on the butterfly as I stamped him on vellum and stuck him to the card so his tail was under the image. The flowers are prima and the text pb. The hearts are on her coat pocket. Thanks for Looking.x

I also in my frustration which probably doesnt help lol, have been trying to use my sewing machine, trying being the operative word, oh my gosh is it really that hard to sew a straight line?! the cardstock that hit the bin, anyhow, I gave up with straight and thought I would become a master of messy! lol, oh yes and boy is this messy so I added lots of other texture to the card to divert you from the sewing, but I have said it so youll look there anyway lol, but I planned for it to overlap and be skiwhiff honest! I think it works- ok so I have wrote all that and it wont let me upload! GRRRRRRRR

shall try in another post bye for now. Thanks for stopping by, hope to get round to visit everyone soon,xxx

Hi Joey - Gorgeous card - love the image and your colouring.
(YES!! - it is hard to sew a straight line, I blame the machine, the fact that I'm sewing card but really I suspect it's me)
I tried to zoom to see your wonking sewing but it wouldn't let me. Hope you soon get your computer problems sorted - at least before you hurl it throught the window (lol)
Thanks for playing with us at Colour Create this week - hugs Heather xx

Fabulous card Joey. Adore the butterfly. Stick with the sewing - straight lines do get a bit easier with practice. Hope your connection and PC problems soon get sorted out. Thanks for joining the first Colour Create Challenge.
