Papertake Weekly Challenge

Hi's  "she who must be obeyed"  instead of that impostor who is just getting a little too big for his boots...the cheek of him and please don't be fooled by that serious face....behind those gorgeous irresistible big brown eyes lies the heart and soul of a mega hooligan and what a blabbermouth telling you all about my latest Hero Arts purchase....I wanted it to be a surprise.....because I knew I would be using it for this week's challenge over at Papertake Weekly which is

well that wasn't exactly a hard decision
my favourite colour combo
Black..White and Pink

Papers: Little Fleurs.....Pink Petticoat
Shabby Saturday......Funky Hand
Image and Sentiment: Hero Arts: "Be Yourself" Clear Stamp Set
Alphabet: Doodlebug Cardstock Stickers
Flower: Nestabilities..embossed with Swiss Dots
Ribbon: American Crafts
Can I say a big thank you to Stephanne for the gorgeous pack of Prima flowers and the sachets of cocoa and chocolate fact I am off to put the kettle on right now and give one a try...who knows it may give me a much needed boost of energy.....and what am I doing today.....well the same old....a bit of card making and back to the clearing out of the new crafty space and guess what my blogging buddy and crafty helper is nowhere to be asleep on the sofa dreaming dreams of doggy treats no doubt.
Can I also say a big thank you to all those lovely bloggy buds who left me suggestions about the old computer problems....I already have Firefox but it is not without its problems too.....takes an age to upload I am switching back and forth when I need to...the proverbial pain in the butt...and I think Dawn hit the nail on the head....Mr Blogger obviously can't keep up with all the blogs on the go now.....are we heading for meltdown...oh I hope would I live without all my bloggy buddies......catch up with you all tomorrow for another challenge on Polkadoodles.
Hugs Kath xxxxx

    Gorgeous card - love your new goodies!
    Have you tried Google Chrome? I swap between that and Firefox...gave up on IE a few months ago when the new version (IE8) came out and caused no end of probs with blogger. I've been fine since I ditched it...
