Belle Flowers!

Hello Everyone, hoping you are all well. 

I'm still without my laptop, I thought I would have it back today but when I went to collect it, the technician couldn't get the pointer to move,so I left it with him, but now there seems to be other problems, it's only about 3 years old so I'm pretty disappointed by the whole thing. I'll phone tomorrow to find out the state of play.
It's a pain as there are things things that I can't do blogwise on my tablet that I can do on a PC. 

Anyway at least I can post as the photo of today's card has not been transferred to my laptop;
Using one of the beautiful CB background stamps, Belle  Flowers, I coloured with Derwent Inkintense  Pencils,  having first heat embossed with Wow powder in Silver. Matted on to Blue Central Pearl  card, strangely looking green in the photo . Sentiment from CB Floral  Notes.
I think that this stamp is too lovely to be kept in the background. 

A big thank you to all of you for visiting and leaving  your  kind comments.
Also a warm welcome to Donna who is my latest follower,  I hope you will pop in often. I have tried to find you Donna, but I can't find your blog,if you pop in again perhaps you would leave me a link,so that I can return the visit.

That's all from me for now,so take care of yourselves till next time,
Hugs Kate x 😉

This is so pretty Kath, a beautiful stamp and I love the colours you have chosen - you are so right, this stamp is much too lovely to be kept in the background.

I love the pretty colours you have used for this stamp design. hope your PC gets the all clear. My ipad is great for using downstairs but as you say there are things you just can't do on it. Hugs Mrs A.

As you say far too nice to be kept in the background it's a beautiful stamp, love the embossing and colours you chose, the floral notes tag is the perfect finishing touch.

What a beautiful stamp and perfect for a focal piece as you have used it here. I love your colouring and this could be used for any occasion too.

Beautiful card, love the colours Kate. Our IT guy told me if any pc is over 18mths old it is considered old in this day of technology....who can afford a new one every 18mths..xx{aNNie}

Hi Kate
Beautiful card, stamp and colouring and yes, card is showing as green on my screen. My laptop is about 12 years old and, touch wood,is still hanging on ......... temperamental at times, but hanging on (but like me lol!)

Love this one too! Beautiful stamp, beautifully coloured too. I was lucky and was given an Inktense set of pencils for Christmas and I am in love with them already, beautiful intense colours they are the best watercolour pencils I've come across x

Definitely agree with you Kate - this stamp is far too beautiful to be kept in the background. It looks fabulous and certainly doesn't need covering! Love your colouring as well. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx PS give Teallach a cuddle for me please! xxx

Hi Kate,
oh I am so sorry to hear you are still having probs with your laptop.
I do hope they manage to fix it alright for you.
It can be such a great pain to use the Tablet every time.
Love this wonderful card and all the sparkly embossing too.
Those flowers are coloured wonderfully too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hey Lovely Lady!
This is my most favorite make to date!! This is gorgeous Kate!
I know it really stinks when one has computer problems. Fortunately my husband can figure it out but occasionally we have to go see the computer doctor.
Great job and I hope you and Alistair are doing well!
