A Pair of Penny Black Mice

While I was checking out Cute Card Thursday Design Term cards (they're fab) for the Mirror Mirror challenge I remembered this stamp and how I could use glossy accents on the lenses for this shiny challenge. I chose the Lime Ricky BG papers and then realised there's a sketch on Basic Grey Challenges, although I've missed out the flowers. I really need some cards for Men and it was really hard not to stick a flower on somewhere, then I was trying to work out what else I could put on it, there is a time when less is more and hopefully this is one of them.

So I've deleted my cookies on my PC to see if that would improve it, in future I will stick to one password, signing back into forums etc has been a bit of nightmare and it still didn't make my PC better. So eventually I went to the Help and Support and you have to follow the troubleshooting thingy, one of them was have you the latest updates from Microsoft, so I let it check and all of sudden it downloading and installing. I now have IE8, I was so worried it wouldn't work like Sis but touch wood it's working and the proof in the pudding will be this morning, when I go bloggin.

Thank you for lovely comments about Mum, she's doing OK and hasn't had another seizure but is still exhausted.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
