Ok computer ?

Ok computer ?  well no it's blinkin not, aaahhhhhhhh.  I speak to you now from my dusty office at work (on an official break of course;)  to inform you that my one and only computer (aka Sheila) is very poorly and wont come on :(  We are awaiting specialist brother-in-law help to see if he can revive her but alas I do fear the worst.  Needless to say it could be some time until I am back in blog land and will only be able to snatch a few moments in work.  Have missed you all so much and hope to see you really, really soon :D

I know what you are thinking, what the heck does wasabi have to with your card and it can not possible be a song title lol!  But hey fear not there is madness or method in it as the gorgours green ink and card stock is Stampin' Up!s wild wasabi and it is a song by Lee Harding (cue smug grin lol!).

A one layer design team challenge card for you today for over at In Love with Stamping.  It was heaven to my simplified ears and I was thrilled with how the ink played on the crumb cake.  Hope you are well and warm and a great big yoohoo to all my great chums out there.

Have a great day & see you soon x

Hey mambo!

Oooh yes it's a melon mambo Christmas!,give your table or tree an extra zing with this fabulous colour.  A design team challenge piece for In Love with Stamping for you today to make your own decorations.  I happily discovered whilst making my decorative boxes from here that the tube like shape would make a cute belly band for some wrapped treats in tissue paper.

Please pop over to In Love with Stamping or the full directions and maybe you could join in the fun too :D

Have a great day & see you soon x
