Back at last, Thank you for caring.

Evening Everyone.
I'm so glad to finally be back in Blogland.
Sorry that I have been MIA for so long, but I have had major Internet and laptop issues.
I had been blogging every day, as some of you had noticed. In fact I have been amazed by just how many texts and e-mails I have had from people asking if I am OK since there has been no activity on the blog for a while.
Thank you soooo much for your care and concern. It has been wonderful to think that so many of you have missed me.
I'm very much of a technophobe when it comes to the computer. I'm absolutely terrified of pushing the wrong button and downloading some virus or other.
Give me crafty stash and I will play, but if I'm honest I'm rather scared of the computer.
My good friend Joe has rescued me, yet again.
It is so easy for computer literate people to go 'Oh you just do this, this and this!!!
By the time I have walked away, I have completely forgotten what to do (seriously blond) so I think that I will have to get him to sit down with me and go through things so that I can take notes. Maybe I need to get hold of a copy of Computers for Dummies, if there is such a thing.
Another reason for the blogging delay is the fact that I have had to find the disc to reload my camera package. Why do we always put these things away somewhere so safe we can never find them again. It is now in my laptop bag so of course it will never be needed ever again lol.
This card has been made to say Thank You to 'Inspector Morse', a crafty friend of a friend who has managed to track down a couple of punches that I have been desperate to get hold of.
The main stamped panel was created a while ago using an Artemeo floral stamp set and dye based inks.
The sentiment is from Woodware.
I managed to find some background papers in my stash that complimented the panel perfectly and I added the flower and leaves die cut from scraps. I also added some faux stitching and nail heads.
Lets hope that normal blogging service has now been resumed, and thank you once again for your concern.
Happy Crafting and hugs

  4. Hi Kim, this truly is a Kim card, fabulous colour scheme as ever.
    You don't need to tell me about computers, you are so lucky to have someone who knows how to fix things. I have been trying to make stand alone pages on blogger but it just keeps sending me error messages. All this is interfering with my craft time but I so want to offer everything I can to my visitors. There is a book called 'Blogging for Dummies' and it is quite useful but they keep changing things so they are quickly out of date.
    Happy crafting, Angela x
