Phew what a scorcher! Afternoon all - how are you? We have been out and about this morning and having spent far longer than is healthy stuck in traffic jams in town (the Highways Department have a LOT to answer for at the moment) I was more than glad to get back home in the cool. All this fur is too much for this weather and my tail is wilting.
Toad has braved the conservatory but poor little Vince has slunk off upstairs to find somewhere quiet to stretch out and sleep.
Anyhoo, I am slowly making progress with this new computer and finding out how to do things. On the death of the old pc, I lost Photoshop which was my fave editing programme but I read about a free online system recommended by Which magazine, so thought I would give it a try. It is pixlr.com and so far, so good, it seems to be user friendly, which is what a technologically challenged squirrel needs. One of the jobs we did this morning was to take an external hard-drive to the computer hospital to get the data transferred from the old pc, so hopefully I will have my pictures back soon!
After all that, I've got a couple of cards to share with you today - not one, but two! Both feature Stamping Bella Uptown Girls and I blame that Mary J for leading me astray with these beauties. If only I could get them to look as good as Mary does!
This one is Bianca Loves Her Big Cake and she was so much fun to paint with the Distress Inks (ReInkers). The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set and that lush backing paper is from the Basic Grey "Wisteria" pad.
And this lady is Opal The Optimist - the sentiment comes with her - again painted with Distress Inks. The papers are from a coverless pad in my leftovers box. Those fabulous purple dewdrop gems are by Papermania.
I bought both stamps from the wonderful Elaine at Quixotic Paperie - and she has done her fair share of leading me astray lately too!! If you have not shopped here before, I urge you to take a look - so much choice, and a brilliant service with super fast delivery. Thanks Elaine.
Hugs, Squirrel xx
