A new toy

Afternoon bloggers :) Hope everyone is loved up and having a happy Valentines day.  I am a happy bunny at the moment as there is a new toy to play with, a bright shiny red laptop! It became obvious that the cheapo desktop computer wasn't very reliable and it was decided that a new one was necessary, it's not particularly fancy but it should be better than the old PC. I got all excited and had to hop from foot to foot when I realised that I could sit in bed and watch DVDs and even talk to you all WITHOUT WIRES!!!! Fancy that! I know that this is probably very old hat to most of the world, but technology has made very slow inroads into my home so believe me this is a big deal, lol.

Anyway, I thought that this card is quite appropriate today, this might be me very soon, blogging in my dressing gown and playing with the new toy.  Coloured in copics, I tried to make it as if the light from the laptop was illuminating her face but the light should have been a bit cooler than I've done it. It was an experiment though so I'm happy enough with it.



I am entering this in the Make It Colourful challenge, which this week is to add shadow and depth to your image, I hope I achieved it with my colouring.


Happy Crafting!

Love the card Carole and so appropriate. I bought a laptop recently too and it is very liberating. Trouble is I don't do so much crafting now as I'm busy looking at all the blogs and goodies for sale. lol
