aaaaawwwwww gotta love technology...


Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend?...ours was kinda quiet Phil worked Saturday and was at a marshaling meeting yesterday (yep motorbike racing season will be starting soon *sigh*) so despite my rush to the shops for my new cable it was very very quiet...what was yours like?...its amazing how much we take technology for granted isn't it, well until it stops working then its a mad rush to get it to start again...I have a backup camera but it was charged either and could I hell find the cable for it...well looking for the cable last night to charge just in case something like that happened...guess what I discovered, the cable for my spare fits my camera I needed the new cable for...now that's defo called sods law isn't it lol, I also found a huge bag of cables that I haven't a clue what they are for, why do we keep cables without labelling them, how crackers and frustrating is that, do you all have a bag like that or is it just us?...tonight we are having the whole family for dinner and Phil made pies last night yum yum, so I'm going to make a cake for dessert this afternoon so that's my day sorted...right now onto my card for today which should have been yesterdays card (don't go there Mina it will fry your brain lol)...its using this stunning Crafty Cat image from Mo's Digital Pencil...I added a wordart Happy Birthday to it...brilliant idea the blank page isn't it so you can add your own message...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and teamed her up with these amazing summery papers from the Kaisercraft - Secret Admirer 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad, I'm loving all the new pads I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts last time I ordered aren't you...I finished with some Pink Roses, punched leaves and a sentiment from the same pad...the fab sketch is from Just Us Girls Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Sandy's Crafty Creations Challenge and the Allsorts Challenge too...right I'm off to get my pinny on for baking, can you believe I'm actually starting to enjoy baking, haven't stretched far enough as to start to enjoy cooking yet though lol...whatever your up to have a brilliant day

Beautiful card, gorgeous colours. Technology is great until it stops working. Leads are kept in the man drawer and my hubby knows exactly what they are for, I wouldn't have a clue.

A gorgeous card Mina. The image is so adorable and love your papers and colours.
I too have a bag full of cables and bits, or rather my hubby does. Hubby is a bit of a hoarder and will keep things forever. But he doesn't label anything and then forgets what it's for. So every so often I sneakily get rid of a few things in the bin. He has never noticed up to now lol.
