Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well, but if not sending positive thoughts for a speedy recovery.
I'm now on my laptop, it's good to have it back and working so much better. However everything had to be wiped off as there were so many viruses, the technician backed up what was important and not much of that, just photos, and some of them for my blogging posts, but I've lost passwords, and for the life of me I can't workout how to get a pinterest button so that I can save to my boards, which I can't find either. I've been on to the help page, but can't make head nor tail of it, I honestly don't know how I did it before, I must have lost some little grey cells since then.
I had to work out how to connect to wireless and install the printer. It's been a pain, but that's technology for you. If anyone out there can tell me how to sort pinterest I would be so pleased. I seem to have lost my boards too.
Good job I keep a book with all the various passwords or I'd have been stumped. I have Windows 10 but that needed an important update and now it's all a bit different again, wasn't life so much simpler before all of this kind of stuff!!
Anyway, the card your seeing is Damian's birthday card, his birthday is today, and although he is now 46, it seems like yesterday he arrived.
The dies are Sue Wilson and the design is from the brilliant John Lockwood. When I watched him make this on Hochanda last year I thought what a great design for my son. I bought the Alphabet dies, but didn't have much else. I hadn't realised that he had cut the dies with sticky stuff and could then put the black glitter on the spaces. I did it with a quickie glue pen and let me tell you that was a labour of love, took absolutely ages, saying this Damian liked it saying it was smart!! I used the colours of his favourite football team.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last couple of cards, much appreciated.
Just before I go I thought I'd show you what Rowan got up to yesterday;
I hadn't noticed that whilst she was snuggling into me that she was nibbling away at my cardi, couldn't believe it and the worst thing is that it's cashmere and I loved it. I bought it a few years ago when I could still afford to when I was still working. I was too stunned I couldn't be angry, so lesson learnt wear old togs when doing the Grandpet sitting. It's a cosy card so I will keep it for wearing around the house.
So that's me for now, take care of yourselves and see you soon,
