Tuesday Taggers and more GRRRRRRR!!!!!

Well this post is now the culmination of three days messin with this ****** computer and after formatting the hard drive and reinstalling windows etc I can now access my blog (after a fashion) So before it goes haywire on me again I'll get a move on with it.

Tuesday Taggers then have 'A taste of the Orient' as their theme this week so here's my offering

I have the most beautiful set of willow pattern stamps which I love and don't get chance to use very often, a Kodomo set, beautifully designed and so elegant.  I stamped it with denim adirondak ink and then brushed a little around the edges and that's all it needs really.  I wanted to compliment the simplicity of the image so teamed it with Basic Grey's wisteria paper, highlighted with a touch of stickles.  The Stampin Up sentiment goes so well with the story of the willow pattern too.

I have so loved making this card - sometimes you make something which just does it for you dont you think?

Hope you'll find time to join us at Tuesday Taggers this week with such a lovely theme.

I'm sorry I havn't been able to get to your blogs, it may be a while longer before I'm more reliable or rather the computer is but until then wishing you all you would wish for yourself this week

Gentle thoughts
x Michelle

I sympathise with you over the computer frustrations Michelle. The blooming things drive you batty don't they?

Your card is well worth waiting for though as it's a stunner as always. The beautiful backing paper is the perfect compliment for the gorgeous image. Lovely job!

A stunning card! Sorry to hear about your computer problems. We have had printer problems, and have got so frustrated I bought a new one. It is still in the box at the moment though due to no time to sort it out!
