Dead computer!

It is official, my laptop is dead. The computer guys at work are not sure if it is a problem with the screen or the graphics card but whichever, it is not worth repairing and so a new one has been ordered. Fortunately all my work has been rescued from the hard-drive, which is working properly, however, it means that I am stuck on an ancient laptop with minimal software or capabilities until the new one arrives and is set up, hence the dodgy photos!  Thanks to the computer problems I only have one card to show you today, a clean and simple Christmas card made with two inkadinkado swirl stamps (stamped using green and red distress ink) and a Hobby Art sentiment stamp. I then added pearls to some of the dots.  As a result I am entering this card into this weeks Crafty Creations 'CAS', Delightful Challenges 'Pearls and swirls',  Do you stack up 'swirls', Penny's Challenge 'Anything goes' and Simon says stamp 'anything goes'.  That is all from me for now. Have a nice weekend and enjoy the unexpected sun!
