I am still missing

Sorry guys I am still missing. I ordered a new laptop charger and guess what??? The incorrect one turned up. I have now sent that back and am waiting for a new "correct" one to turn up. I do have a few cards on the go and they will be ready soon to go up once i have my laptop back up and running(or i can pinch a lappy to use)

Hope you are all well.

where am i????

Hello all blogging friends and followers, just a quick note before i show you my card today. I have managed to pinch a laptop to use today to upload my card. I have not had a good week. Why is it that all bad luck comes at once. To name just one my laptop that i normally use that has all my crafting up dates, pictures and everything else on it has decided to stop working, luckily i have an external hard drive that everything is backed up on to, but it is a real pain. I think it is the charger that has stopped working so i have a new one on order to try, fingers crossed that will be the only thing wrong and will spring back into life soon(well when the charger arrives) Any way i don't want to bore you to much so on to the card.

I made this last week and really wanted to upload it before the challenge was over, hence me picking a laptop to get it done.

The image is from Belles n whistles beary big hugs. The main background DP is from Tim Holtz ideology paper pack vintage shabby. I made the music sheet from scotch. I stamped whimsy music notes on to white card stock using memento cocoa ink. I them distressed it using distress ink vintage photo. I have gone round the edges with a distress tool and vintage photo. Brown ribbon is from eBay. The image has been coloured with distress ink refills(i am practicing a few different technics and will hopefully update you soon on that). I have stamped around the edge of the image with stempelglede grunge collection.

I have cut a magnolia tag out distressed it with vintage photo and stamped a happy birthday message with memento cocoa ink.

All the flowers are from wild orchid crafts. Now i didn't have any vintage looking flowers and to be honest im trying to use my supple up so i can buy more. So i have taken different sizes of roses and sprayed them with my pro marker air brushing kit in different colourins of brown to give them the vintage look. I am pleased with how they turned out. I have used stickles crystal glitter on the girls headband to add that bit of bling.
Well i think that is everything, if you have any questions please ask away.
