Something different....

Well we finally sorted out my computer problem and guess what it was the BATTERY in my PC had gone...PC World were all for stripping my PC down and it was my hubby who said could it be the battery they changed it and hey presto..cost us all of £4.  The battery caused the time and date to be all over the place, it affected my emails (as thats date related) and also my blog..so worth knowing.  In all the years we have had computers its the first time this has happened and my Computer is only 9 MONTHS OLD.....

Back to my card...as I've been busy making samples for club night tomorrow and also doing other things I haven't had time to blog but I found this card a few days ago that I made possibly 5 or 6 years ago....the pattern I think was a freebee from a Parchment exhibition I went to. The image has been drawn and coloured using inks before being embossed from the back. Dorso crayons were used to create the coloured background and of course pricking, cutting and embossing a pattern around the edge.  I haven't done parchment for a very long time now as I much prefer stamping its quicker!

The school holidays are almost here that means we shall be having the grandchildren to stay also other visitors so my blogging with but when I have time....

Its out club night tomorrow so will post some pictures of what we are going to be making later in the week.

Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather..

Anne

I was thinking about you just yesterday Anne as I had not seen any posts from you lately and looks like somehow I missed a few, sorry about that especially seeing you and hubby dressed up in your 40's gear.

And really like this card, the colours and parchment elements really do catch the eye.

Stunning work, Anne! I always admire anyone with the patience to do parchment craft. I tried it many years ago as it always looks so special. But Unfortunately I never had enough patience to stick at it xx

So gorgeous, Anne - beautiful detail! Have bun with your grandchildren!

Leanne ... said...

Wow Anne! This is just striking!!!!!!! I love Parchment but haven't ever done it because like you said it's very time consuming plus not spending money on purchasing the tools needed. Your coloring is just beautiful.

So glad your computer problems are solved. Sometimes it's the easiest problem and the technicians think so deep that they miss the obvious first. So glad your hubby thought of it first.

Enjoy your week.
Hugs...Leanne
