aaaaawwwwwwww I had a sickly laptop

Good afternoon everyone, now that seem weird to say afternoon...I had a very poorly little laptop for a while but with a lot of coaxing, care and love its feeling much better now and allowing me to post again...it nearly went out of the window but I decided to be nice to it and it worked...we had a fabulous day yesterday, Phil took an extra day off work and we did a little wandering then our darling Daughter and her other half joined us for dinner, I love those family meals don't you, they don't happen as often as I would like but that means they should be enjoyed even more shouldn't they...right onto my card for today, now how amazingly beautiful is this new Sara Burrier digi from Crafts and Me, its called Morning Glories and is just fantastic to colour although all Sara Burrier's images are...love em...I coloured it with distress inks and put just a little glitter on her wings...the papers are Basicgrey I think as they had escaped from their paper pad, I loved the colours though and thought they matched the image beautifully...I added some of this fantastic lace which I have now run out of and haven't a clue where I got it...oh no drat my jelly memory...of course an image like this has to have a bit of lush satin ribbon and bow doesn't it, its the craft rule...well for me anyway...the sketch is from Sunday Sketch & Stamp and I'm entering this for the City Crafter Birthday challenge and the Pear Tree Designs lace challenge too...well all should be well with my laptop for tomorrow now I have given it some electronic medicine so I'm off to do a bit of painting...whatever your doing today...enjoy

Glad your lappys working again Mina, it's horrible being without them isn't it? I love your card, that is a real gorgeous image, I'm trying to save money and you're forcing me spend oh dear! (I'm weak)
Have a good day, oh and I know what you mean about those family meals, I used to love having my daughter & her family round and we used to go to their house, I miss that now they are in the States, I love family meals together.

This is utterly beautiful. The lace has that antique look that matches the vintage design of your card. The satin bow adds the perfect texture contrast.

PS Talk sweet but firmly to your laptop, they have ears. :)
