Hello Everyone..

WOW!..been awhile..but happy to say I'm here to share another card although it has taken me 3 days to find it..

Most of my files are now on the new computer [in triplicate!!..don't ask]..and new photos of cards are now being put on the new computer..somewhere.. so sooner or later I will have to start posting on it...

For now I'm tucked away on the other side of my craft room using my old faithful PC...slow but at least I know where things are.

Have a vintage Birthday card to share today, made before Christmas and already gone to its new owner..I added a sentiment and the right birth number after the photos were taken so she is a bit naked..

This beautiful image is from the Graphics Fairy..and I think she looks just lovely sitting there in  deep thought.

There's the whole card..lace,flowers,netting and pearls all from my stash of bits and pieces...

I love the little bird on a branch charm..that was in my candy win from Pia

And the side view...

Well, before this PC blows up..I had better sign off as it is soooo very slow and not very happy.

Hope the weekend went well for you all..I'm on Monday afternoon already and the grand sons are on their way round as Mum is off to do the shopping and they don't want to go...

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will see you again on Thursday if not before..

I will go find where my photos are on this windows 8 many places to look ,and hopefully can start posting from there soon..

See you later..

Hi Chrissy a gorgeous card. Lovely image and so many beautiful embellishments. Good luck with your pc you are being very brave putting new cards on it, I am still using my old one for all my cards, editing and digital papers and image. In fact all I use this one for is blogging - very expensive way to blog, don't tell my husband he bought it me!! Susan x

Beautiful image and a beautiful, beautiful card! Love all the pretty flowers on this and your design. The image is sensational!
Not being about to find anything on a new computer is my biggest fear and keeps me from getting another one. Mine is slow but at least I know where I am on it. You'll figure out the new one in no time at all.

I'm sure you'll soon get used to your new computer as you use it more and more, me and windows 8 just don't get on I'm afraid, far to faffy for me. When I had my new computer last year I had it built to my own spec, that way I got windows 7, I'm not a bit adventurous and would rather stick with what I know, much to my son's dismay who's a computer geek! he sorted it all out for me and transferred all my craft stuff etc over to the new one, I'd have never have done it myself so I feel for you Chrissy if you have had to do it yourself, makes you brave in my eyes I can tell you!!! so I wish you well, and I'm sure you will soon be most proficient with it. Hugs x

Seriously Chrissy your card is stunning, being a lover of anything vintage I couldn't help but fall in love with this creation, the design and those flowers look so beautiful.

wow fantastic Chrissy!

It takes a little time to get organized with a new computer, but you'll get there. Good thing you found this beauty in your folder to show us. I think you make such lovely vintage cards. The way you add panels and embellies over the card base makes it look extra pretty, it leaves room for such much decorative details. And lookie, my little birdie charm found a home!

Mary J said...

I had to come over from FB for a closer look, Chrissy. It's even more beautiful here! Gorgeous flower arrangement and perfect with that image!

Veerle said...

Gorgeous card Chrissy. And pc's I know I have a hate/love relation with mine. I have it almost a year now something I'd like to throw it through the window (often !!) LOL LOL LOL
But we can't manage without them anymore :-(
Take courage, Love Veerle xxx

chrissy xx said...

JUst GOrgeous! What a FABulous design and I LOve all your embellishments..
I'm sure you'll get there with the new computer Chrissy...Just think back to when you first started using the old one lol...things must and will get easier I'm sure.

Carol S. said...

She looks lovely and wistful too. Stunning design and love all the beautiful embellies. I am on my new lap top which is useful but very annoying too. Can only do limited things on it at the moment and haven't had time to find other things it can do. Got windows 8 on our 'office' computer and still getting used to that too. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Tammy said...

I feel your pain but to get around finding things, I save everything to my desktop and move them to folders on the desktop that I created to make it even easier for me to find things! Beautiful card and such gorgeous embellishments. The image is especially striking!

Kat W said...

This vintage style is so beautiful and all the pretty flowers and lace are perfect with the image :-)

I'm glad you are back in blogland even if very slowly and hope you get to grips with the new pooter soon!

Big hugs, Kat xx

This is absolutely breath-taking Chrissy!! I love all of the added flowers and pretty details you've added with your image!! Computers can be such a pain!! Hope it all works out for you! HUGS :)

Sue B said...

Oh Wow! this is SO beautiful Chrissy… what a lovely vintage image and the papers and embellies are just perfect with it! Love the beautiful flowers… the sweet charm… the pretty lace and the net ribbon… this card has a wonderful Victorian feel to it! :-))
Hope you get everything sorted out ok on your new computer... it's quite a chore transferring everything at first!
Big hugs, Sue B xx
