Sugar Bowl # 50 and Winter Wonderland

Sorry I haven't been around much but things have just been very hectic with our shop flood.  Still hasn't been sorted out.  Insurance assessors have been out and told us to clear out the shop to get the builders in and they would e-mail us with a list of criteria they required.  That was on Tuesday.  Contacted them again on Thursday to be told, not to worry they would put us in temporary premises.  Then on Friday got  another phone call to say that wasn't the case.  Too many people doing the same job but don't know what the other is doing.  Unfortunately for us that is now two weeks our shop has been closed due to the shop next door flooding.  Not a great start to the year so far. 

Anyway I thought I would take some time out and make a card.  I am entering my card into two challenges.  Sugar Bowl # 50 - Follow sketch with optional theme of embossing.  Was going to use my cuttlebug dots folder, eventually, but then thought it would be too much and Winter Wonderland - Theme - Let's Go Dotty.

I am also going to do the insides of all the cards I make as I make them, rather than when I need them. 

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Patterned Papers - Kaisercraft
Image - Sugar Nellie - Simply Sassy
Coloured with Papermania Pencils (didn't have colours to suit in my Distress Inks and most of them now need re-inked)
Gems - Mei Flower
Sentiments - Molly Blooms - Free with magazine

Thought I would upload my photographs to my new laptop and do my post and linking from it while watching the Skate-Off for Dancing on Ice.  No such luck.  My laptop wouldn't let me open more than one page at a time or let me highlight.  Ended up using our family computer to finish. Must look at the set-up manual and get it fixed.  

Thanks very much for popping by.  It is very much appreciated. 
Can I also say a big Thank You to my followers for their support and encouragement throughout 2010 as I am still learning and not that quickly. Hopefully 2011 will be better and I can craft more often.  Take care and I hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend.
