A new computer .....

After last weeks fiasco with the internet, I decided I need to update my computer so I could go totally wireless.  My modem is wireless but was hardwired to my desk top so in the weekend went out and got myself a laptop - a 16 inch one so I could use it like my desktop on the desk - with printer attached  I was going to use my other monitor but that turned out a bit of a mission so have just stuck with the laptop screen.  Not as good at viewing colours for the photos but getting there as I get to know my way around it.. but oh so much faster at connecting to the internet.  Slowly getting used to the keyboard - but did go buy a wireless mouse as I HATE the little swipping thing.... (excuse the technical term there)  Have most of my programmes reloaded, still just a few to go.  Tonight though I went out to a Coffee group that has started at Stampzone... only three of us turned up.  Made a nice card... but not sure I'll go again.  Too much of a rush as I go for an hours walk from 5-00 till 6-00 and by the time I get home from one, have a shower and get off to the other... there was no time for tea :-(
This is a card I made for my little grand niece who is 4 next week, I used Club Anya's Saturday sketch #9.  The two green papers are from a digi kite by Vinnie Pearce called Weathered Papers.  Just lovely. Thanks to Lucy for linking it on her blog.

And look what I got over the last few days... cards from Virginia and Sanne.  Just wonderful.  I am totally surrounding in all these amazing cards from all round the world.
 Well thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate all your comments.  Just to let you know my job application went in today... so now it is in the lap of the Gods as they say!!!  Next week interviews... doesn't help that it's a busy weekend.. stamp group all day Saturday and I'm doing the Round the Bays Fun run on Sunday.... with about 70,000 others~!!!
Take care
