Gnome time


I've been a bit absent the last few days as my computer was targeted big time with some vicious viruses last week and it's taken forever to get it sorted and it's still not 100%. I though I was there Friday after they installed new spyware, but oh no, nothing that simple as that then messed up other things and I was unable to do a new post or access or send mails.................and it's still not sorted properly so will keep this short so our IT guy can do a bit more tweaking.

Thankfully my Allsorts post was scheduled, but that's been pretty much it until last evening, so very belatedly a share of a couple of the samples I have made for the new Stamp Addicts programmes which you can see on Create and Craft TV on Sunday 18th at 10am and 3pm.



I will keep this post short as they want to do a bit more fiddling with my computer so hopefully I am all set to go. The card at the top is made using the Gnome stamp sheet.........I really surprised myself here because as self confessed non cute crafter, I so enjoyed working with this set and made quite a few with them.

My second card used the new Front Door stamp set which is very versatile adn lends itslef to Chrismtas, new home and so on. You will find them under the All New Products section here.

  17. Gorgeous cards Brenda. The second one is just lovely. The one with the gnome is really cute and I don't usually like gnomes lol!

    I had a bit of bother with my computer a few weeks ago. I kept getting messages that various things were wrong with it and I needed anti-virus software. But I have anti-virus software and I'm very wary about clicking on anything. I had to re-set it twice before it was right. Fingers crossed it's been ok since.

    Take care,

    Kat xx

  24. Hi Brenda - love what you've done with the door stamp and the gnome is just fab - as have been your others, they are very cute but I love how you've used cute with a distressed/vintage feel.

    Hope you get your IT issues sorted - I hate it when our PC goes wrong, feel like i've lost a limb if I can't get online - oh dear that sounds quite sad !! Anyway hope the tweaking works...Esther xx
