Hello Everyone...well, that's been the longest weekend of my life..

My PC died....gave up the ghost and DIED....e mails gone..contacts gone...blogger gone...documents gone..all of it..I was DEVASTATED..

I went to one of  my clients houses on Saturday morning and he asked me "Why the long face"..I told him my world fell he was on the phone and said a few words.. handed me the phone and told me to tell the bloke on the other end what happened...I did...he came...took my baby away...and bought her back tonight [Monday]..and although a lot has changed with updating stuff and the pages look different and I still cannot find my links pages and DT pages and stuff like that I can at least post a here we go....with no links.

I'm here today to share my DT card for Stampfairy  [knew this link]

And look who it's BARRY...the cute little devil.

Barry is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and a red copic on his pants horns and fork, which also got a lashing of glitter.

There's no DP's on this card either...just corrugated card and red cardstock...

The moon, bats  and clouds was a freebie from Stampfairy and I made them pretty big.. coloured with a yellow copic and glittered the cloud edges...

The side view..nice and simple...

So thanks ever so much for stopping by and I'm so very happy to be back I missed you all so much and was so lost for a couple of days. I even did some  housework for goodness sake..

Have loads of catching up to do so better get to bed early tonight as there will be and early start in the morning..

See you tomorrow...

I remember when my computer died. Lost all photos etc, cost us a fortune to get everything back. Now I have several back up products installed, but it still is work when a computer is changed, to install all links and find your way around. So I know what you're going through:)
Cute card, a bit different Halloween themed, love the corrugated paper and the clouds. Nice clean style!

Chris said...

Poor Chrissy! Living all weekend with a dead computer is no fun at all!!! Just imagine the trauma of being reduced to doing housework...dreadful! Still, all's well that ends well and you're back online!
Gorgeous card, he's such a cute little devil!

Oh what a blow for you Chrissy thank heavens that kind man managed to get it sorted for you, good luck sorting the rest out! Fab card, loving the sparkle too! Susan x

Oh gosh Chrissy, that's dreadful - it's frightening how much we rely on these pesky machines isn't it, but I am glad you are up and running again. Loving this little devil - he definitely looks to be full of mischief. Not sure how you did his nose, but it looks 3D! Brilliant. Hugs xx

Sarah said... be careful I hear it's ever so bad for your health!! Love your card, he still looks cute!! xx

Jacee said...

That's the cutest little devil I've ever seen! fabulous card Chrissy!
Sorry to here about you 'baby', it's awful when your puter goes kerput, I know how I felt when my old one was playing up, I was so worried about losing all my 'stuff' but I was a very happy bunny when DH treated me to a new one so all was well.
Hope you get things back to how you want them.
