What a week this is turning out to be.... aching back, neck and hands and a laptop that is literally only just surviving and is even held together with tape as the Glossy Accents didn't manage to do the repair job! Every time I switch it on I'm just keeping those aching fingers crossed that it'll start up and live a bit longer until my new one arrives next week. Then I'll have Windows 10 to get used and oh what fun I can imagine that will be!
But I have got a card to show you today that I made for a couple of challenges and also to try out one of my new Penny Black stamps called 'Peaceful Winter' which has several stamps in the set. I've gone for a very CAS design using one of the stamps inked with black and green Memento inks and then clear embossed. Up to this stage things were going okay, I'd trimmed and matted the image onto some green cardstock and stuck it to a card blank and then I decided to stamp the sentiment - from the Penny Black 'Sweetest Moments' set - straight onto the card. The black ink isn't so juicy (must buy another when I go shopping) so I was reinking the sentiment and even though I was using my (brand new) TH stamping platform I managed to move the card slightly on the third inking... OOPS! Hubby said it looks as though it is a shadow and is okay and IRL it actually does look like that but the photo shows all and I think I may try to salvage things and stamp (more carefully) a new sentiment to cut out and cover this one.
I made this for the following challenges
Allsorts 'be there or be square'
Penny Black and More 'black and white plus one'
Thanks for popping by today and for taking the time to leave a comment. I'll be round to visit you all as soon as I can but will have too take things slowly as I'm having to carefully nurse this old laptop of mine through it's last few days and hopefully until my new one arrives !!
