Pearls in Blossom

 **Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page 😦  **

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Pearls and Lace.We have the fabulous Aurora Wings as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Isn’t this just the most adorable little thing!!She’s Whimsical Cherry Blossom Sprite  by Aurora Wings and I coloured her with Graph’It Markers.Little spots of Liquid Pearls were added to the stamens.Some freebie paper was used in the background and behind that I tucked a couple of lacy punched borders.Lengths of crochet lace cover the joins 🙂 I bought the fab cherry embossing folder a while back but this is the first time it’s been used and I love it!A chipboard greeting banner and flower that came with the paper pack have been added along with some real pearls – well,flat backed ones at least 😉

My computer still won’t connect to the internet and I’ve really missed being able to download,print and create.Unfortunately when I got my wireless printer a while back I just plugged it into my PC as that was where the printing was to be done.Now,I can only access the internet thru’ my DH’s laptop and whilst I can download I can’t print from it.Being ‘clever’ thought I could make my printer wireless and connect it to the laptop.Not so 😦 Appears that can only be done with my computer thru’ the internet….Grrrr!Yeah,I know I could probs set up the printer with the cable to the laptop BUT it sits on my dining table when in use and has to cleared away at meal times.If I wanted it on the computer desk I would have to pack up my PC and put it away – don’t want to do that!!Sooooo…then an idea hits me (doesn’t happen too often but it’s a goody when it does)…I bought myself a reasonably priced USB Flash Drive/Memory Stick (cheapest from Argos)…whatever you want to call them 😉 Now I can just transfer what I like to my PC and print – genius!It’s so easy even a computer simpleton like myself can use it – yay! And the moral of the story is if anyone else finds themselves in a predicament like this then this may be the solution 🙂

    First, love the card. Beautiful layout and image. And, I absolutely love your coloring. Second, love your computer/printing story. I have an old laptop not connected to the internet that has a program on it that allows me to “tweek” my jpeg files better than my new laptop. So I use a flash drive to transfer files between the two. So easy, isn’t it? Aah, the wonders (and frustrations) of technology LOL

    Lisa, this card is adorable. I love your fabulous colouring of this sweet image and the overlapping ovals with the scalloped frames. The combination of the beautiful lace and the bunched borders looks awesome. Glad you found a way around your computer woes. They can be so frustrating!
