Hi everyone!
I never got around to blogging yesterday again as I was out most of the day with my friend and in the evening I was watching TV and knitting!  Never a dull moment in my life.  Anyway, today Mr C is sleeping as he was on the midnight to midday shift so I am upstairs in the craftroom this afternoon.  

My new computer is still getting on my nerves but I'm beginning to get the better of it.  My biggest problem is Epson doesn't have a driver for my all-in-one printer that works with Windows 8.  I tried downloading the drivers for Windows 7 but to no avail so my techy guru (son!!!) is on the case as I don't want to have to buy a new printer.  My printer is working but I can't change the print quality etc which is a real pain in the proverbial.  

At long last I've actually made a card though!  This is one for our friends whose daughter recently had the twins.  I'm going to wrap it in tissue and pop it in an envelope box as it's going all the way to Spain.

I'm off now to make dinner but will probably be back later as there's nothing worth watching on TV tonight ... blasted footie again!

See you all soon.

Ah its very sweet Anne and beautifully decorated. Hope you get the printer sorted soon. I have an Epsom and hate it with a vengeance. It will not take my card even my neena card. Takes about 15 goes before it accepts it, driving me batty and its only a new printer!
