A Card to Share!

Hi all!

Sorry for my absence of late - I have just come to realise my computer is being hacked by some low life loser so I have been trying to avoid using my computer as much as possible until I can get it fixed. Hopefully I can get someone out tomorrow to up the security on my PC for me. I know a few of you have received SPAM emails from me recently. I am so sorry! I have deleted all contacts from my email account so hopefully that will help until the issue is resolved. Not sure what else to do at this stage as I am the least compter savvy person ever to have existed! This is so frustrating!!!

Anyway, the reason of my post is not to rant, but to share with you this card that I have created using a sketch I found on the SRM stickers blog and using felt for this week's Noteworthy challenge at Scrapz;

For You Card
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - Basic Grey, Punch - Stampin' Up!, Stickers - Basic Grey, Felt - craft supply, Die - Sizzix, Button - craft supply, Embroidery thread - DMC, Ribbon - unknown, Staple - Making Memories.

Unfortunately, I did not have any SRM stickers to use on this card, so I dug into my brand new stash of Basic Grey Olivia stickers and the co-ordinating patterned paper. I tried to make myself like the Oliver range (given that's my son's name!!!) but I felt it was too grown up looking for a little boy. The Olivia range is to die for! I think it is perfect for Valentine's Day, Spring, and little girls. It might even get me scrapping some of Tilly's baby photos?!

As I mentioned earlier, this card also incorporates felt for this week's Noteworthy challenge at Scrapz. I die-cut the felt flower myself using the Wedding Flowers die from Sizzix.

Well, that's it for today! Before I go, just wanted to also share some exciting news... Ollie has his first tooth!!! It popped through on Wednesday. Ollie is being as brave as he can be, but seems to be suffering a bit with the pain. Poor little guy has the second tooth already trying to make its way through. Thank God for Panadol, hey?!

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend... and happy 4th of July to all our American friends!!!

It's so frustrating when people do things like that. I hope you get it all fixed up. So cute about the tooth. My boy lost one last night LOL!
