At last!!

Hi everyone and Happy New Year to all my blogging friends and followers. I was beginning to think I'd never be able to blog again!! My laptop decided to play up after Christmas and eventually had to be re formatted. Dominic managed to back everything up for me and I don't think I've lost anything, there was so much that I can't imagine I'd miss anything anyway :)
Did you all get lots of crafty goodies for Christmas? I received some Couture Creations stamp, cut and emboss sets which are lovely and I've been playing with them and also a pretty tattered lace die.
So come and see what I created:

This was stamped with Early Expresso and then embossed with the matching EF. The butterflies were cut and stamped. Love the frame in this set :) The challenge at Make My Monday is asking for embossing so I am entering this card.

This was using the Tattered Lace over the edge die and layered onto cream linen card. Sentiment is from the SU Wetlands set, punched out and some liquid pearls added. I am entering this card to Addicted to CAS challenge where the code word  is DIE CUTS.

Apologies for the lack of commenting lately as I was only able to use my tablet and there was so many posts to look at that I gave up :) Be assured I enjoyed browsing your wonderful creations!

Hi Val. Happy New Year!! Two beautiful cards using your new toys - you're one lucky girl!! Love them both ... the vintage style of the first card is perfect down with browns, the scrips and your gorgeous frame. And the second one is so pretty with the tattered lace die-cut matched up with the white and soft yellow - beautiful! Thanks for joining us at ATCAS. Loll xx

Great to have you back Val and thank goodness for your excellent support team! Love both cards but especially the first which has a lovely vintage feel. I get all my SU crafty things for free so my poor family have to think of other things to get me! Vicky x

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Val. It's lovely to see you back.
Both your cards are beautifully designed using your new stamps and dies. I love both of them.
Sorry to hear about your techy problems. It's a nightmare when these things happen, but thankfully Dominic was able to help xx

Glad you got everything sorted Val - but how frustrating eh? Good that Dom was able to save the day (and all your files!!!). Two great cards but absolutely love the second one with the Tattered Lace die. So pretty and perfect for our challenge at Addicted to CAS. Thanks for playing along.
