Gardeners World

I'm not sure where this week has gone! Although I spent a day painting the garden furniture.

I went for copper for a change. Luckily that corner of the garden is fairly shady so it wasn't too hot. Then yesterday I spent the day trying to sort out my PC - what a waste of time and so annoying. After the latest windows 10 update I couldn't get on the pc all my files were gone (again! this happened last year too). It seems to be a known problem.

I managed to get control of the PC by deleted corrupt files from the Registry, luckily the files are in the main on my external hardrive. I am going to just work from the hard drive from now on - I can't keep going through this! Unfortunately it also means that I have to reload my digi kits - I had been slowly working through them as I used them, but have no enthusiasm to do so again at the moment.

Anyway - I happened to have some pieces already printed from Ooh la la cd roms - Shoes in Bloom 1 and Say it with Words cd. I had the trellis cut out and just cut away the top portion to fit it to the card. I used a hot ink sparkle pen for the roses. The little sentiment is from a Forever Friends stamp set. A few TL gardener related dies added and some doodling by me!

This is for the cd Sunday challenge - A Gardeners World

Great card Linby! Good job you had things ready. Computers are great until something goes wrong with them. Thanks for taking part in my theme choice.

Hi Linby. How frustrating to have such problems with your computer. I am keeping everything crossed as I have Windows 10. I love your card. You have created something special with your die cuts especially the rose blooms on the trellis. Thank you for joining in with us.

What a great card, love the trellis and your die cuts.
Computers are great but at times they are frustrating, I have windows 10 and there’s so many new bits on it every time they do an update,
Hope you can get yours sorted.
Thank you for joining us,

Gorgeous card - I love that deep red rose backing paper, especially teamed with the roses on the die cut archway. Thanks for sharing at CD Sundays.
