its amazing what air can do...


Good morning everyone, yes I can finally post...guess what it was wrong with my precious laptop...it was overheating, the fan wasn't working enough and every time it overheated it cut out...so off I went to the shop and bought a can of spray air cleaner...I wasn't brave enough to take my laptop to pieces mind lol...so I did a bit of research and pointed the air can in the right direction and after the cloud of black bits had cleared I did it again and bobs your Uncle its working brilliantly...I think it would be much better if the back was removed and it was done properly but I had visions of all these bits left over when I put it back together so didn't dare lol...well how have you all been, did you have a good weekend?...our was quiet except for getting our Daughters washing dried in time for her and her lovely other half to get on their flight to Amsterdam this morning...they are off to spend five days in a city centre apartment and I hope they have the best time ever...besides from the drying panic our weekend was very very quiet...we hardly even went out actually, it was one of those weekends when you cant think of anywhere to go...right now for my card for today...now look at that perfect little face, who else could draw this but Mo from Mo's Digital Pencil...I think you can spot Mo's images anywhere don't you...this is the beautiful First Fish (Girl), there's a boy version of this cutie too...I used distress inks for colouring and teamed her up with these beautifully coloured papers from the Echo Park This & That Charming 6x6 paper pad, I bought this ages ago from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but I think its out of stock atm...I finished with some wooden letters for the girl word, gorgeous cute spotty ribbon and of course a few buttons, I think you would probably all faint if I made a card without buttons wouldn't you lol...the lush sketch is from the Card Crafter's Circle Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Catz challenge and the Creative Fingers Challenge too...I'm spending the day with our Daughters cat, I must see if I can get a photo of her, I call her sumo cat, she is huge and so fluffy I usually spend a week after they come back from holidays getting rid of cats hairs...maybe I should buy some Immac lol (just kidding)...whatever your up to today don't forget a bit of jet propelled air does you the world of good lol. have a good one
