To a Special Niece

Good morning all.

We had a beautiful day yesterday, hope we get some more of it this week. Off to the hairdresser this morning, then for blood tests...luckily the nice Mr Sainsbury is delivering food this afternoon as the cupboards are bare again! Anyone else having problems with Google Chrome at the moment...mine keeps having hissy fits and refuses to load pages, a real pain in the butt when trying to do commenting as I keep having to re-start it....grrrrr technology lol!!

  1. Super card and those colours are very nice together...xx

  2. This is a fabulous card Carol, I love the blue and Kraft combination and all of your lovely die cut details.
    I have found Google Chrome to be running very slow, the pages do load EVENTUALLY, I had put it down to Hubby loading some new security software on my laptop, but perhaps not if you are having problems as well.

  3. A beautiful card, I do love this cute little image and my favourite colour combination too!
