Have A Mice Day and important blog info to read.

Joy of joys,my blog is now working probably thanks to a nice man on the google blog forum ,thanks Martin.I'm now using firefox as a browser,blogs are not working right with Internet explorer ,my side bar was at the bottom because of a broken tag on a post,since deleted,Martin found that.Since doing this post I've found using fire fox will not allow you to enter a url link to link to challenges,so now I'm swapping through 2 browsers. Blimey I think you must need a degree to blog... Some things on the pc i'm good at ,others it's a hard slog.Having never used a pc till I was in my 30's and not ever taken a class,it's a bit like crafting...trail and error but nowhere near as fun!

On to my cards.

Have a mouse day

features a lovely penny black stamp,I've had a while. Me being me,totally naughty stamp crafting addict,I had to have accessories/embellishments to go with it,so I bought a fabulous die cut set with matching stamps from Die-namics. I've long thought stamps with the dies to match,no bad hand cutting,a great idea,then, trust the Americans,they produce them. I know other companies are following suit, more for me to buy...oh dear...
The papers are nitwits ,from an old crafting mag I've added some cute buttons fromDovecraft back to basics and a bit of butchers twine.

allsorts : needles and pins

Spring Time Bunny

features a stamp I bought yesterday from hobby craft,Buttercup,bloom and grow set from trimcraft. A lovely set of 5 stamps for under £4 , they are clings with red rubber underneath and stamp beautiful .
I've coloured the image with pro makers and added a touch of pencil.
The papers ,with ink distressed edges are K&Co,the ribbon from a local craft shop,they sell bits of ribbons in bags for £1 and there is always a really yummy piece like the one featured.
This card is so Spring like and bright unlike the dull wet day here....roll on Spring.

How cute these cards are! I especially like the first one, the bobbins and ruler are the perfect embellishments!

I hope your pc problems get better - technology is great when it works, but when it doesn't ....
