Botanical Notes

Spent all day yesterday fighting with my new all in one PSC, ended up having to call Hewlett Packard help, very helpful young man who spent a lot of time trying to sort it all, transpires the fault lies with my computer, several drivers (whatever they are!) have been disabled in other words my security has disabled them because someone has tried to hack my computer, I knew several features were not working but didn't know why, now its a case of getting someone to sort in all out. New printer does work from my laptop but all my files are on my desktop. Anyhow I've ended up reconnecting my old scanner to scan this as I'm beyond trying anything else new right now.

Used my PennyBlack Botanical notes for this card , coloured with my rediscovered Karisma pencils, I'd forgotten how much I loved them. Few freebie papers from my stash and a bit of ribbon. I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges

Fantasy Stampers -  Mums the word  - the challenge is for Mothers Day, its 35 years since I lost my lovely Mum, I think she would have loved a card like this

Fashionable Stamping - colour between the lines, I used my Karisma pencils to colour with

Penny Black at Allsorts - blossom and bows
