PC Problems

I am not having a good day am i here i am asking for help again lol...
I am with Virgin Media and tonight it ran its usual virus scan and detected infected files W32.Backdoor2.EMEB but when it quarantined them a pop up appeared asking for the XP service pack 3 disc to be inserted, i thought what the!!! I have a done a little bit of googling on the named virus and it seems it could be down to PC guard with Virgin, has anyone else had this problem?? And how can i sort it lol.... Has anyone else encountered this problem??
Just thought i would alert others as well...

Storage box

I have seen on someones blog a storage box they made for stamped images, so they where filed away with little dividers, think they used the SU tab punch to put the name of the stamps on.
I thought to myself "i must make one of these", i thought i had bookmarked it to come back to at a later date!! I am hoping one of you lovely bloggers will know what i am chatting on about lol.... Doesn't it drive you mad when you see something whilst blog hopping then can't remember where Grrrrr......
I hope you have all had a fab weekend and enjoying the great weather we have had :)

Wedding card

I haven't made a wedding card for some time now, have to say i really enjoyed making this one. This is the first time i have inked this stamp up, shame on me lol... The card is for a work colleagues son who gets married tomorrow, i so hope the weather stays fine for them :)
The stamp is FF coloured with PM's matted and layed onto oval nesties made with SU! card stock. The papers are PP sweet flourished which i think are great for wedding cards, although have had trouble with printing yellow. The greeting was printed on the PC using Beansprout font, cut out with oval nesties again.

Corner Book Mark

I saw one of these corner bookmarks on 'Susana's Custom Art & Card Design' with a brilliant tutorial i thought i must give that i go, so here is my interruption of it. I have used a Gorjuss girl stamped image sent to me by a dear friend, coloured with promarkers and copic pens. The papers are the left over bits and bobs from my previous card which are all SU! ,well they are to good to waste lol...
This is the other side of the bookmark, the part that slots on the page. I have used SU! papers again, flowers are made with EK retro flower.

Here is the bookmark in use so you can see what i mean about slotting it onto a page. I am at the moment reading 'Breaking Dawn' which is the final book in the Stephanie Meyer Twilight series about vampires, brilliant reading if you haven't read them already.

Spoonfull Of Sugar #50

The theme this week is Touchy Feely. We would love to see some texture on your cards.

I have used a lovely stamped magnolia image send to me by a dear blogger (thank you x) this is so cute and very easy to colour. I have used my prisma pencils for a nice subtle look to blend with the delicious papers, which are all SU! I have added some glamour dust to the wings .The greeting is from Craftwork cards, lil bow from my stash. The touchly feely bit is some cream lace, hope this qualifies me for the challenge??
I am off to Port Sunlight tomorrow to the stampers show there, not that i need anything lol... Will be back over the weekend, so have a good one peeps.

Lakeside Cabin

I do dislike making men's cards, no flowers or pretty pastel colours :( My FILs birthday is this month so thought i best get cracking. I have used my new stampscape 'Lakeside Cabin' set of stamps, i love this stamps as has so much detail. I have stamped with brilliance cocoa ink on to BG papers which i thought gave a nice effect, as i don't own a brayer. I am not to sure on the layout of the card, think it is lacking in something!
Hope you all have a great Bank holiday weekend :)
