Using Serif Craft Artist Professional 2

Evening all

I bought Serif Craft Artist Professional 2 yesterday and have been having a play with it but I don't consider this as handmade cards as it is computer generated I know I have to put everything together but it just doesn't feel right.  But it looks as though it is going to be a good tool when I finally get round to doing some scrapbooking which I have been thinking about for a while now as we have loads of lose photo's in the cupboard.

I also bought the Wild Flowers set 3 art pad from Lili of the Valley which were showcased in Nat's blog ( she made some beautiful cards and inspired me to get this pad as I had been thinking about it for a little while now.

Had a bit of a bad day today energy levels were very low major effort to even sit and craft and everything took twice as long to put together.

We have finally got our NIE numbers which we need to sell our timeshare in Gran Canaria and now just have to make an appointment with a Notary which will be next week now as he is in London until Tuesday to get the power of attorney signed and the Apostille of the Hague sorted all of which will cost around £156.00 but at least then the timeshare will be off our hands thank goodness as we have not used it since 2008 because of my health and have been paying maintenance for it every year of around £400.00. 

Well here is my card for today which was as I said created using my Serif Craft Artist programme

I then added glitter and pearls to add a bit of bling
Am off to do a bit of blog hopping
Love Alison xx

  8. Beautiful and professional looking card. So pretty with all its pureness and shine. xxx

  9. Fabulous cards since I was last able to visit Alison. I see where you are coming from but you have had to design the card before printing it out, and then put it together so you have 'made them by hand' even if you haven't made every every element! :o)
