An apology, A card, A Gorgeous Award and an extremely long post!!!!

Good evening, hope everyone has had a fab weekend, sorry this is a real long post so I'll try to make it as painless as possible, firstly I'm sorry if I've not visited some of you, it's not for want of trying; but for some reason I get thrown out of certain blogs when using this computer. I can get in by using friend's computers & I'll have a go later on our spare, but that's extremely slow.
Some of the blogs that I can't get to are
Lili of the valley challenge Blog (which is annoying because i made a card for this weeks sketch)
Just Love to stamp ~ don't know what the problem is Louise :-(
Impressions are made ~ Sorry Andrea I've tried tons to visit you.

Anyway on to my card, going to post this card for LOTV challenge then try to link it later on our spare ~ what a nightmare, I could scream!!!

I have used
LOTV ~ Rosey posey
Nestabilies ~ Classic & Scallop ovals
Martha Stewart ~ Pinking scallop
Retro Punches ~ To make flower
Tim Holtz ~ Distress inks

On a brighter note!

Hi Fleur

Naughty computer messing you about like that.

If you think it will work and want me to try then I am happy to.

Hope you had a good weekend despite your computer problems.

Hi Fleur,
Dont know where to start darling I could talk forever about the content of this post, but will keep to a minimum till I see you again...
Thanks a million for my award, I love it! Mac is so photogenic, this one is no exception! I agree with your three comments, especially your sense of humour. Hope the computer behaving now, everyone's nightmare. Your card is just amazing, my favourite colours, the flower paper is gorgeous, so jealous of the flower you made which I still cant do! and the image is so sweet I will really have to buy some LOTV stamps.
Have a good day, see you soon
