Whiff of Joy (67) (part one) and Friday Sketchers(90)

What a day!!! My computer died!!!! And DH says it needs another mother board so it will take days to sort out! So I begged and pleaded for him to let me use his laptop! It is going to take me days to get used to it. I also don't have any e-mail, so no notifications, arggggggh

Anyways onto the challenges.

I am entering this card into Friday Sketchers and Whiff of Joy challenges.

This sketch was provided by Beatrix on Friday Sketchers and pearls and swirls is the theme on Whiff of Joy.

Here is the card (I flipped the sketch)

As I don't often have a lot of time, I decided to make a full gift set to go with the pearls and swirls theme. I saw the beautiful gift set that Jane made for Tracey, and after Jane's kind permission I spent most of today making mine, not a patch on Jane's, but I am quite happy with it!!! As I already had the card made I decided to keep to the same colour combo. Please pop into Jane's Lovely Cards blog to have a look at Jane's and spend sometime looking at the wonderful creations Jane makes!

I have added separate posts for the rest of the set go HERE to see it!

OH NO - a dead computer. I got severe withdrawal symptoms last year when mine did that.

Hope you don't lose too much stuff!

This is gorgeous - lovely sketch, thanks for the link.
