Cat Scratcher

I made this card at the beginning of the week, but it has taken me all week to get it uploaded. Conflicts and unsupported program warnings kept flashing up on my computer, so hubby decided to give it an upgrade!

So it's official... I hate change!  He asked me if my computer was now running quicker, which it is, but everything else is running slower, he's moved things into folders to tidy up the desktop, he's put on a more recent version of Windows and Word, he's replaced my over heating hard drive and he's fixed the noisy fan... I know I should be grateful, but I'm such a grump, I can't do things I used to do in seconds, I can't find things and I hate change!!!

So this is my first post on the new system, here goes with uploading a photo...


assistance was needed, Microsoft Picture Manager had to be set up again, but hey, we got there!  So my card uses a Karen's Doodles image, won last year, Ooh La La papers from the Shawn Jenkins CD and a LOTV sentiment.

Challenges;
Sketch Saturday - Challenge 397 - Use an old sketch - I chose 228, but flipped the sentiment/pearls

Passion for Promarkers - Favourites - Cats/Ooh La La CD's/Layers/Pearls
Fab n Funky - All creatures great and small
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Fancy - Lots of details - fancy paper/pearls/layers - maybe not fancy enough tho?
CRAFT - Picture Inspiration
Animal Friends - Cats

Thanks The Paper Shelter for my great prize, Jx

You sound just like me - it takes me ages to get used to anything new, persevere it will be better in the long run.
