Renovations, viruses and roses!!

Where- oh- where has the time gone? It's been a while since I updated my little piece of the web. That's because of a few reasons...last week, the girls went home to Edmonton to visit family during a semester break. While they were gone, we decided to renovate the office. After a lot of work and being off line for a while, we almost have it the way we want it. All that's missing are a few picutres on the wall and some more organization of all the stuff we have in here.
Then we got hit by a virus. Julia unknowingly clicked on a zip file that she was 'supposedly' sent by one of her friends through MSN. Poor girl feels really badly, but the end result is that my computer is majorly messed up and needed to be wiped clean and reloaded. It's not back yet from the computer 'emergency' center so time will tell if it will be good as new. Luckily we backed up all the important files before we took it in. All my scans of cards and email addresses are safe (I hope!).

On to more pleasant things...I have a new addiction...it's coloring in these outline stickers with 3D glaze makers from Sakura of America

I saw this technique at my LSS recently and when I received this flower sticker as a RAK from a friend (thanks Adelle) I knew I had to try it. And it couldn't be easier. I just put my sticker onto a transparency and coloured the picture with these beautiful 3D Glaze markers. I wiped some of the colour off the roses to add some shading. When dry, I adhered it to the patterned paper by putting the glue dot under the rhinestone. I just love the end result. Sticker is by Stampendous.
This card is on its way to a friend.
