Today's card is one I made for my sister Jeanie, which I left with a little gift for her. We certainly did some - lots!! - of sipping tea and gossiping! We also allowed ourselves a few treats (well, it was a holiday!) but despite that I came home having lost 1½ lbs! She has a little miniature Yorkshire terrier, Molly, who loves her walks. Despite being very small she sets a fabulous pace. It certainly isn't a stroll I can tell you. Twice a day dog walking was just the thing to work off those extra pounds I would otherwise have stored up! Roll on next time!

This is a 5 x 7 inch tent fold card. The blue striped backing paper is a digi paper which I have had for many years. I bought it from LOTV when they were doing digi papers, but they didn't do it for very long. The image is a topper, also from LOTV . This is another one I have had for what seems like forever, but it seemed to be very appropriate. The roses are WOC and the teapot charm is from the Ribbon Girl. Then I just added some ribbon and pearls. Nice and easy card.
Just before I left to go to my sister's I received an email which put a virus onto my computer. Poor John spent most of the week trying to sort it out. It seemed to attach itself itself to my photo editing software programme Microsoft Picture It and the firewall, or anti-virus stuff, or whatever it is, (you can just tell how technical I am can't you?) isolated it and quarantined it and it was impossible to reinstall. While I was away John downloaded a free version of Gimp but I really liked my Picture It software, so my lovely man bought me a new version of the software, much more up to date, ( Version 7 whereas mine was so old it was Version 2!) and installed it for me. Obviously it is a bit different which is why yesterday's picture did not enlarge properly. I think I have sussed that part out now so it should work properly now! I have my fingers crossed as I type this - not a very easy thing to do let me tell you! ROFL! I'll also have to check out Gimp when I get chance.
Well that's it from me for today. Take care and enjoy your day.
