Hello Everyone..

Well, here goes nothing..just hope I remember how to go where I should be going, but I'm sure I will do okay..

My first post on my new PC and sharing a 21st birthday card and box...

TA DAA...had to go the long way round to get it..but it is here...

This is the card and box together..

The open from WOC and my new MB 'Fern' these papers but I'm sorry I cannot remember where they are from...they have been hiding in my stash for a long time.

The front of the box with computer made sentiment and little  key charm..

Front of the card and the pretty embellishment on the bow is an old earring..

So there we go...I did it.

All my editing and watermarking is all done on this wacky machine and all [.once I found the hole to put the chip in]..

Although I took photos today and it saved them  somewhere when I wasn't watching and now have to go find them..

Challenges to enter..

Thanks so much for stopping by..

See you tomorrow.


EDITED...Found them..duh!!..I had written my instructions on scraps of card and wrote a shopping list on the back of it...must not do

Lol you are so funny Chrissy and way too much like me. I forgot to scan a pack of firelighters when doing my shopping today and off course alarm bells went off and we had the whole lot emptied out and recounted lol. So embarrassed! I love your gorgeous boxed card. I am going to hunt through my old earrings, of which I have many, and see if I can recycle them!!
