Flaming Computers

Hi All

Don't know whether to say good morning or good evening, I am sitting in my little craft area with my main computer doing a system restore hoping to resolve the issue of my DVD/CD drive not working and also trying to download my printer onto Sarah's laptop so I can print from my crafters companion cd's as I wanted to do some printing onto tissue paper and get some Christmas candles made up.  It is now 30 minutes past midnight and I think I'm going to bed and letting everything run overnight.  Will be back in the morning nite nite.  Xx

Morning Everybody

Well had a better night's sleep without Toby in our bedroom last night thank goodness, he slept with Sarah and did not disturb her at all or so she says.

My computer is sort of behaving itself this morning or at least I can read a CD on it and open the files but I think I might buy an external DVD/CD drive as a back up. 

My card today is

I wanted to make a card that was suitable for a male for Christmas and came up with this cute little bunny.  Crafters Companion CD think the image was off the Makey Bakey Mice Christmas CD.

I am going to try and make some little Christmas decorations today will showcase them tomorrow and also share some fantastic news with you all.    I hope you will not be offended but I have listed some items for sale if anyone is interested but if nobody on here wants them then I will put them on ebay.

1 x Punch and Stamp Set by Tonic Studio (pick of the bunch) Clematis/lily/poinsettia

1 x Punch and Stamp Set by Tonic Studio (pick of the bunch) Rose/Pansy/Camellia/Gardenia

1 x Punch and Stamp Set by Tonic Studio (pick of the bunch) Carnation/Sweet William/Peony

I bought these for £24.99 each plus postage and am selling them for £15.00 each plus postage if anyone is interested they have been used once. They are still in original boxes and excellent condition.

I also have a sure cuts a lot CD version 1 if anyone is interested just let me know and all I want is postage.

My elderly neighbour is having her bathroom turned into a wet room this week so I will be looking after her and the workmen until it has finished.  She is such a sweet old lady and I try to help her as much as I can but she does have family who live in the village but they take advantage of her as I have mentioned in previous posts.

I am off to have a shower and to get dressed before the workmen turn up as I will be making them all a cuppa and I am not a pretty sight until I have put my war paint on. 

Will be back later to do a bit of blog hopping once the ipad has fully charged.
Love to all


  1. What a gorgeous card Alison :o)
    I would always recommend an external drive. I have two! I never save anything to my computer gard drive, only the software is on there. I always work from my external hard drive and back it up onto my second one.
