Have been trying to get here all day … but school hols really do muck up routines … don’t they!? But … they are nice interruptions … I had lunch out today with my 3 girls … so that was really lovely! Then I sat down this afternoon to do this post … and my computer was being totally obnoxious … and it was taking me 5 mins to save … and 5 mins to open a page … and I tried rebooting 3 times without any effect whatsoever … so I GAVE UP!!!! This is not supposed to happen with NEW COMPUTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😦
So … here I am back again … perservering … but very frustrated!!! You have no idea how long it took to upload the photo of the girls!!!
Anyway … I thought I would share another card we did at the “2 Leonie’s” stamping day! Leonie N has mastered the art of brayering … and shared another lesson with us. I am feeling a lot more confident now that she has shown us some great hints. (Leonie is a BRAND NEW BLOGGER!!! – Why don’t you pop by her blog and say hi!!!) She has learnt her skills from Michelle Zindorf tutorials and also from Mrs Lumpy. I think this card has been CASED from Michelle Zindorf …
I really enjoyed creating this one. It is fun seeing it come together. For those who haven’t tried brayering … the background card started as a piece of white card. The background is created using brayering and sponging. All the details to create this card (including the brayer tutorial) are found on my card recipe at the end of this post.
I am soooooo tempted to buy this set … it is perfect for these brayered cards … and it has some lovely sympathy phrases … and I really don’t know how much longer I can resist!!! 😉
Don’t forget my blog candy on offer … an $80 Simply Sent Card Kit is up for grabs … and so far I only have ONE entry!!! (Thanks Tracey for popping by to get Lynda into the draw. 😀 ) You just need a friend to enter … here are the details -> Blog Candy. Don’t take too long to respond … you might miss out!!!
I am going to go now … before I start swearing at this computer!!! I’m surprised you haven’t heard my cries of frustration!!! I have my Girls Night In tomorrow night … so will be busy getting final preps done tomorrow. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see me here … I will not be in the mood for a temperamental computer … so if it is still playing up … I won’t have the patience or the time to do a post. So … you might have to wait until Saturday!!!
