New Home card

Hi everyone, another grey drizzly day here today grrrr.
A good excuse for escaping to my craft room  and
 making a card though !
I recently bought this lovely embossing folder and
 have been dying to try it out, so here goes.
A bit of distress inking, some stamping, die cutting 
 a few sequins/twine and job done.
I am entering this into the 'Virginia's View Challenge'
which this time is 'Clean Slate'. I used a lot of white
 space (one of the options) and 'new home' means
 that to me also so I hope it's ok.
Silly me thought I could also enter it into the 'LIM'
challenge this week. Then I realised it wasn't one layer
.............. doh! 
I just realised that Virginia comes from Taiwan, so 
does my beautiful DIL ;)
ps. Hmm my computer is running so slowly these days.
It seems my OH has had secret talks with our computer
 expert  son and they have decided I need a new one.
He also told him to get the best as I use it so much
 ( my son will choose I haven't a clue!). 
Wasn't that nice of my OH though awww ;)
Oh my! I am hoping it will be easy to move all my
 stuff  from  my computer/EHD to a new computer. I
 know it wasn't easy last time I had to change 'puters! 
.............Panic mode now initiated..........
Computers seem to be out of date after 5 years now 
according to our son.........not good is it !!!!!
End of waffling, come and have a closer look
 at my card ;)

  7. Your card is beautiful and I love your new embossing folder! As for computers... I remember your last change.. and mine too for that matter... Now mine was replaced in November just - I have a flash bang up to date thingie... with a network ... and a secret place that backs up all my files (I'm told!)! I have my old computer upstairs still - one day I'm hoping to get a printer up there too so I don't have to run downstairs everytime I want to print something out for my crafting room up there! ANYWAY.. my daughter and boyfriend built this one for me.. and so far, so good! (touching wood and all that). My only big problem is that Microsoft don't do Picture Manager any more.. so it's a bugger to edit pics EASILY! LOL! I do have photoshop etc... but I just want to run through all the pics, and it's not so easy!

    Big hugs
    Christine x

  8. PS... and they copied everything that was on my previous one to this one too... I'm sure your son will be able to do that! x

  9. I love the folder and your card is stunningly CAS and beautiful (love the blue...) Hugs, Gerrina

  10. Fabulous folder and love the way you have added the hearts, a fabulous card again Viv.

    My son is telling me my 'puter is too old and I should get another, but it is still working so will hold out and keep backing up until I REALLY need one LOL.

  11. omg Viv you cant do with having an out of date computer ... that is just not on !! ... love your card ... well done ... happy crafting and love sandy xx
