A much happier bunny today



Morning Peeps, well I am pleased to tell you my computer saga is finally sorted thanks to a very helpful lady at John Lewis's head office. We contacted them out of sheer desperation after several days going from pillar to post within their Customer Services department and within just a few hours yesterday it was all sorted and my new computer is sitting on my desk and at the original price, so now it's all ready for me to start the transition of transferring all my files from the external drive where I moved everything for safe keeping when the old computer went on the blink.

Now for our new Allsorts challenge where Helene has decided 'No Flowers' on our work this week. Our sponsors are The Craft Fairy and Digistamp Boutique.

So without flowers it had to be a scene and this one has a mixture JudiKins, Stamp Addicts, Hero Arts and Art Impression stamps, Pan Pastels and distress inks. When I create a scene there always seems very little to say about the making and my post content seem a bit lacking, but somehow the scenes sort of fall into place and I rarely put and advance planning into what goes where. All I can say looking at the scene now is that my lack of forward planning shows here because I have fields of Rape which are bang on season for April, with ripe ears of wheat in the fore !!

Happy weekend to you all, as soon as I get to grips with my new computer I will be round to see you all.

Oh well, I'm sure you would have used poppies instead of wheat...if they had been allowed LOL.

You've heard of poetic licence! Well you can call this cardmakers licence. We can put what we like into our crafting and get away with it. This is such an idyllic scene :o)

card is so nice!
I'm sorry about your computer.
I hope it's okay now.
Thank you for visiting my blog and have a nice weekend!

Great to hear that you're sorted with the technology. I'd not have known the wheat & rape didn't mix so your scene looks fine to me. Interesting to hear about your way of working with the scenes though.
Hope your weekend is a peaceful one with no high jinx with anything.

Jane said...

Glad the computer is sorted Brenda. I was surprised by the local J Lewis attitude as they are usually so incredibly helpful. It's always best to take to further if you are getting nowhere though. Love your farm scene, spring really is here now. I hope your health news will be just as possitive for you too xx

KT Fit Kitty said...

So happy about your new computer! I agree it is very inconvenient when you don't have it. Mine was down for 3 days last December and I nearly went crazy. I had to go to the Public Library just to get caught up with my emails and blog reading. That's a tough challenge at Allsorts - no flowers! Yours is lovely - beautiful colouring - a great masculine card!

Whisper said...

Absolutely stunning and i'm so glad that the saga of the computer is now finally over - what a shame that you had to get head office involved though, Luv Sam x

Gail said...

Oh yayy for the new computer!
Your card is wonderful as always, even without your beloved flowers!

Robin said...

This is a delightful scene. You excel at these my dear!
I love the horse and plow, so appropriate for a farmers daughter. The dutch family at the end of our road always planted their garden with a plow like this! Happy memories for me. I kept my horse there and road each day after school, before walking home!

Ellie said...

So happy to hear that your computer issues have been taken care off, and that they honored the original price too!
Your card is gorgeous, loving the scene you created! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

This is stunning!! what a gorgeous scene!! Hugs Juls

kanda said...

This is a fabulous scene Brenda and so well put together.
Glad to hear you got your computer sorted - we've had dealings with John Lewis customer services and I won't buy from them again.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend (oh and glad you found the stamp useful) xx

Glad you had a good result. Fab scene

Kathleen said...

This looks more like it should be a painting rather than a card, it is brilliant.
My stamp has arrived, did mean to mail you but wasn't sure if you had a computer or not and didn't like to have you struggle with having to use others computers.
Thank you once again.
