Some More Cards

My computer crashed over the weekend so I'm trying to work out how to put my photos onto Patricks' computer to put them on here until mine has come out of IT hospital!

I've managed to make four cards over the last couple of days but I can only put one on here now. This one is for a friend of mine to send to his Gran who will be 93 or 94 on her birthday - that's a good old age isn't it. I was going to put two cards on but I've somehow manage to wipe off the photos from my camera and I haven't saved them on this computer even though I thought I had. Sob sob. I want my computer back!! At least I know what I'm doing with that one.

The other two of the four cards I can't put on, one because it's for next weeks challenge on Papercraft Junkies and the other was a birthday card for my Uncle which I was going to save until after he'd received it but as I have now wiped that one from existance too and the original is now on it's way to Australia, no one (other than my uncle) is ever going to see it either. Blooming technology!

Guess what?! I found them again. Thank goodness for that.
The second card is one Peej asked me to make for a friend at work who lost her Dad recently. I've never made a sympathy card before so I decided to keep it quite simple. I used my Rhonna Farrah swirl stamps which I coloured in using a white gel pen and then aded the vellum sentiment at the bottom. I did add an orangy coloured prima flower at the bottom right hand corner of the sentiment but I saved the wrong photo so I'm afraid you'll just have to imagine it there.

I hope your computer comes out of the hospital OK and ready to go! I feel your pain!

I love the cards you posted. Maybe your uncle has a digital camera and he can send you a photo of the card that you sent to him?

I love the way you used the white pen on the swirl stamp! Very nice!

Your cards are beautiful Fe-Fe!
I love the "Gran" card....my son calls his God-Mother "Gran". I think it is adorable.
I'm sorry about your computer being sick. I'm sure all of us go through that now and then and it's painful!

Beautiful cards. Really like the colours you have used on both. The swirlson the bottom one are so beautiful and they look really effective using the white pen too :0)
