All That's Missing Is The Sea, But Don't Worry, You Can Suntan!..."

Is there some unwritten law that says laptops only last while you are paying for them? A couple of years ago Jo stopped paying for her "Free" laptop (she was technically paying for a dongle which barely worked for the three year duration!) and as soon as she stopped paying for it, it started displaying signs of early dementia. I have just stopped paying for mine this last week and since then I have had so many problems with it I think I am on the verge of an nervous breakdown never mind the Laptop. I have lost iTunes, I purchased a Registry cleaner because it was a .dll file (whatever they are!!) that was missing and causing the problem, of course all that did was hi-light the fact that I had over 4'000 problems on various directories and for the low, low cost of another £200 I could get it remotely serviced (that never happened!!). So I still don't have iTunes (the missing file is their fault apparently so I will wait until they produce another update and try and fix it that way!), I also can't add a picture in blogger while using Explorer so I am currently using Chrome, it doesn't really bother me but I would like to use the system I prefer. When I try to look through other people's sites it takes an absolute age to scroll, so all in all I think it is on it's way out of the door, if it were an elderly relative it would be getting a one-way ticket to Switzerland (don't worry Mum, I don't mean you!).
So as you can see, I am having a wee break from Kenny K and I am using a Kraftin' Kimmie for a change, I fell in love with this little lady the minute I saw her and she is a delight to colour too. I used a Rouge De Garance paper which I have had for an eternity, I loved the papers but have struggled to use them since I got them so they have languished at the bottom of my paper-tray for years but I do think this particular one works very well on this card. I used some new flowers from WOC (don't you just love those pink springy things?), a couple of spotty ribbons and a banner made from a Woodware stamp. Hope you like,
take care,
Hugs 'n Stuff,

  1. Hi Andy! Love your card! That is a great image and your coloring is awesome! I, too, lost my iTunes and haven't been able to retrieve it so far. Lots of IE crashes lately, which no doubt signals impending doom for my computer. Hang in there! Hugs!
