I'm Back!


Hello everyone, I hope everything is good.  I'm back from my hols, we went to Dubrovnic, Croatia & had an amazing time! Everything was perfect: the weather, hotel, scenery, architecture, food :D  It was only the 2nd time I've been abroad & the first time was about 15 years ago! (we're intending to do a lot more traveling now - I've definitely got the bug).  

I do have a problem though, my PC has blown up (well not literally but it did go back & smell of smoke & now it's not working), this is terrible because all my crafting life is on it :(  (my images, papers, watermarks, photos etc) so I did feel a bit sad but my son says he should be able to retrieve the stuff off it (fingers crossed).  

Luckily I made & photoed my card for this week's challenge at The Paper Shelter before the PC gave up the ghost which is "Shape it up or an Easel Card".  For my card I used "The Cutest Date" (coloured image), some chipboard hearts that I glittered, ribbon, gems & punched butterfly.

This is so cute!! I love the soft colors and pretty easel design. I am glad you had a nice trip and good luck with your computer. Mine crashed last fall and I was a mess thinking I lost everything.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
"pop"! Your content is excellent but with
images and clips, this website could definitely be one of the
greatest in its field. Excellent blog!

Have a look at my web blog :: gamblers
