Less is More.. week 37


It's so good to be back in blogland......you don't realize how much you reply on your computer when you haven't got it and sadly I couldn't comment on a lot of your blogs..
My DH managed to save most of my files from my old PC and although we had a few teething problems my new computer is up and running..... 
Back to my card... Chrissie and Mandi over at LIM have given us another great challenge this time it's COCKTAIL but as you can see from my card I didn't have a stamp with and cocktail glasses on and didn't want to just download an image so thinking outside of the box as we have been asked to do I found this lovely Rubber Stampede stamp that hadn't seen the light of day for a long time.  Just coloured my image with copics and sponged the background and added some extra feathers to my cockerel. 
Strangely enough the Cockerel is our village emblem..

Brilliant Anne - I LOVE the real feathers, that is such a good idea!

Now you're up and running again, you might want to get yourself a dropbox account (dropbox.com) It's in the cloud and you get 2gb of storage space for free and if you put the "box" on all your computers, you can access your files from any of them. Always good to have a back up and easy to use and copy your files back off if you loose them.

A great bit of thinking outside the box and I'm sure that stamp will be used again now you've unearthed it.
