Sketch Saturday #320

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Sir Stampalot

I almost didn't make it again this week.   I am having problem after problem with my equipment.   My pooter can't read my SD card when it's in the camera connected to the computer by the camera cable or when it's in the computer directly. My pooter can't read my SD card from my card reader or from the hubster's card reader when it's connected to my computer but the hubster can read the card from his computer.  Sadly, he has a Mac and I can't just eject him from his seat, I need him to work the computer for me too.    A hellish combination of overheating (I mean me - not the computer - it's been extraordinarily hot here in Surrey for the last week) and hormones are making it impossible for me to deal rationally with my technical problems without ranting, jumping up and down and ending in a puddle of tears on the floor! And to top it all off I keep loosing my internet connection! But I got there in the end with this cute Baking Bea (Teddy Bea 063) image from Teddy Bo and co which you can find here.

I coloured my image in a combination of Promarkers and Copics and used these lovely Theresa Collins papers.  Clever cutting of the horizontal panel means that 8 and August feature prominently and this just happens to be the date of the recipient's birthday.  I hope she doesn't look at my blog!  I also just realised that my main DP should have been smaller and the border bigger.  Sorry Vannessa!

Share some love with my fellow Saturdays.  Scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with Vannessa's fun sketch this week.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl who want to see turquoise/aqua
A Creative Romance - Lets do Lunch
Deep Ocean - Lots of Layers
Hanna and Friends - We Celebrate

Oh this is fabulous and how clever to have the 8 and August showing.
Sorry to hear you're having PC problems. Gosh it has been hot and sticky these past few days.
You know must of the time I'm around and if I can help just call.

Absolutely gorgeous card Lesley, hope the pooter issues get a solution, hormones can be silly, in my case the hot flushes ...and the hottest summer ever.

Warm hugs or cooling hugs
