EMAIL TROUBLES AND Happy Birthday's!

I can hardly believe its Wednesday again already and almost the end of April, i have no idea where the last 4 months have gone, let alone the weeks!

I am having problems with my pc at the moment, i don't seem to be receiving any emails, not sure what has happened, but Pops alerted me via my comments. I also had a friend say she emailed me which never arrived. Please can anyone who has emailed me lately without recieivng a reply leave a comment beneath this post. I will see if i can email you from this end, and maybe you could try sending it again. I am also having trouble with blogger, it takes ages to load and then doesn't load the page completely. Is anyone else having difficulties at the moment?

I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who have left such sweet comments regarding my dad. It is very hard just now seeing him the way he is, but time is a great healer so hopefully in time, my old dad will be back with us, but then, if he never returns, ill just cherish my new dad!

Its my nieces birthday today and this is the card i made her. She loves her guitar and she is what im told is an EMO!!!! (whatever that is) so Jasmine told me this image would be perfect. Im hoping she is right!

This is one of the templates from my friend Anna-Marie Designs, available from her website.

The papers are from the Rockstar DCWV stack and sentiment is my own.
I had to make a retirement card last week for my sons girlfriends mum!! (confusing huh?! sorry!) anyway as she was an older lady i decided to use flowers. I used the penny black stamp onto acetate and was so pleased with the card , that i didn't have time to photograph, that i decided to make a similar card. Here it is!

Yellow is fast becoming a favourite colour especially with spring upon us and summer just around the corner!! I used some papers from K & Co, the Tim Coffey stack. I have stickled the flowers, sorry for the poor photos.

I have noticed that alot of my blogging friends are celebrating birthdays over the next few days, i would love to wish you all a lovely birthday, you know who you are. I have sent out cards and just hope i've not missed anyone.
Things are gradually settling back down this end. Or at least they are at the moment, unfortunately just as soon as i think we're making progress, something else comes along and sweeps me off my feet!!! We have one car back on the road, but still have no idea whats wrong with the other one. Thankfully we dont need that at the moment unless Deans starts playing up again. Honestly i think we should all go back to horse and carriage!
Well my lovelies im off, must take Jasmine to school, she is much better now thank you to all your well wishes.
Have a great day, hugs Linda x

Oh Linda you do seem to be experiencing a really horrible time, what with the cars, your poor dad, and now the computer, it might be that you may either need to look to see if youve got a virus, or even a bit to much on your hard drive, thats what my hubby tells me. Anyway love your cards are stunning, I dont know where you get your mojo from but I wouldnt mind borrowing it for awhile, hopefully things will improve quickly for you soon. Love and very big hugs Shirleyxxxx

Hi Linda, thanks for the lovely comments you always leave for me even though I don't get to visit you as often as I'd like. I was sorry to read that your Dad is ill, it must be a very difficult time and I hope he's very soon on the mend, I'm sure time will help. Your cards are wonderful, I love the EMO card LOL, and the yellow flower card is so pretty, I love yellow even though I know a lot of crafters don't! Sorry you've had probs with email, so annoying and blogger is a law unto itself I think, also been having probs with it lately so I know how you feel. Hope you have a good Bank Holiday weekend. Take care. Hugs, Chris xxx
