In the round




Our lap top has stopped working, which is a huge inconvenience for me, I can do without our TV but not our main lap top, luckily I have my Ipad and netbook which will see us through until we get a new laptop, I am hoping to buy a mac but I don't think my husband will agree to it, I will try and convince him though . Because I can't print or use any of my digital stamps I had to think beyond the square to make these cards the other night. I have only used patterned paper, rub-on's, a little bit of bling and have drawn on some of the designs myself. I also wanted to use my round punch in a different way and so started experimenting with different designs. I have to admit I am really happy with the tree that I was able to put together and the scalloped bunting. In a way I am happy that my computer has broken down as its challenging me to come up with different designs I wouldn't normally try.

The challenges I have included
All three cards are for the Punches Challenge-Moxie Fab World
both "you and me" cards are also for the CFC #35 highs and lows-CAS-ual Fridays
Anything goes linking party-Make it Mondays
Anything goes linking party-Passionately Artistic
All we need is love-Paper Issues

I have just gone and seen an awesome French/Nigerian hip hop concert as part of the Sydney city festival, too hyped to sleep at the moment, hope I will get some sleep tonight as otherwise it will be a very long and tiring day tomorrow at work :(. Hope everyone is having a great week and thanks again for visiting :)

My "You & Me" card was featured at Paper Issues
