Monday again

Good afternoon everyone. I bet you thought I have fallen of the Earth as it's forever since I did any postings here. LoL It kind of feels like I have, I have managed to get myself a new / old inflammation in the left shoulder and don't have much control over that arm at this point. Oh well, this is a long spring or whatever it should be called as it's so wet and so cold that it's looking more like fall to me. I wouldn't mind that if the air had been a little clearer and higher. That wonderful time will come as well, sooner or later. 

I am also in the process of changing computer as it feels like the old one is going to die any minute now. Now a good idea with an inflammation in your shoulder, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do. And that is let your partner help even if it take a bit longer. LoL

Anyway, a new challenge up over at the Crafty Card Makers today. We what you to make a Tri-shutter card. I think almost every one of us in the team made it for the first time, but if we can figure out how to make it, so can you. It was great fun to make this card, and it's not the fold that causes "problems", it takes a bit of time to get all the decoration panels cut. LoL But it was so worth it. Great fun!

For this weeks creation I have used a digital image from Teddy Bo. Isn't it lovely? It's coloured with my Letraset family, mainly the new wonderful spring and summer set. The colours are to die for in this set. Just love them. Designer papers used is from Nit Wit Collections, but I can't remember which one. But it sure is bright and cheerful. A few old flowers from Prima is used to decorate the whole thing with. It was lots of fun to make the card and I will sure try to make a few more of this model. Now here is what Lin has to say about our challenge for this week. We will be back on June 3 already with a new challenge for you all. And this is what Lin has to say over at our challenge blog:

"Annette would like to see a tri-shutter card with a stamped image, either digital or rubber, with an added twist of using the colours Blue, Yellow and Green. 

Please ensure your card includes a stamped image to qualify for a winner or Top 5 slot, whether you add the twist or not is up to you.

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. 
Long may it continue!

You may have noticed we are not taking our usual two week break between challenges because somebody (okay me) got the dates wrong with our lovely sponsors and it was easier to just move our challenge date to accommodate. So we will be back on 3rd June with our next challenge. 
 Watch until we reach August, when I move it all back again!"

This post might look a bit strange as I was working with two computers at the same time and it kept messing with me. I have not got all my pictures over to the new one yet, but I am doing my best. Luckly for me I was ready in plenty of time with this challenge card and could pick it up from there now when the old PC starts to refusing me access to my own files. LoL Anyway, I hope you give this folding technic a chance and come and play with us. I even tried to keep with the colours that was added as an option. 

Ok, I hope to see you over at CCM and that I get both my shoulder and new computer fixed soon because at the moment they both drives me nuts, not to speak about the bad internet connections, but just a few more months and then it will be gone as well. Yeah!

Love n hugs

Beautiful creation - I've down loaded instructions to see if I can make one of these folds myself. Sorry you're still going through it at the mo. Things are rough for DH and me too - the damp and rain don't help. Take care of yourself lovely lady Karen x
