 Hi, today my card features a digital image from Di's Digishop I have used Spectrum Noir illustrators to colour the image and have gone for a black and white theme, the papers are from my stash the flowers have dark grey Nuvo drops for their centres
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for popping by unfortunately I am still having mega broadband issues it has taken me over 2 hours to get this far I think I am going to be calling it quits very soon with both this and Facebook issues I don't think I can stand it much longer.  My health has also taken a downward turn I had to go for a blood test a few weeks ago and have been informed that my cholesterol levels are very high so is my blood pressure,  I am having to monitor my blood pressure for the next week and have changed my whole eating habits which is not a bad thing. I have been put onto statins which are now affecting my legs and my sinus this year is just getting worse.
I am grateful to all my blogging buddies who have stood by me for so many years I feel that I have let you all down 
I am taking my laptop and printer to my mums to see if things improve there but if not my days of blogging are numbered.
to you all and stay safe

Oh dear me Lorraine, I hate the weekly stints, soon as I look at the machine mine goes sky high. Do tell them if the statins are not agreeing with you as there are alternatives, I changed and the current one seems OK. My daughter has just been diagnosed as Diabetic, she's not a happy bunny, sadly it's hereditary, my Dad, me and now her, I told her she's done well to avoid it thus far, she wasn't impressed!!

Always love and easel card and this is very pretty with the cute bunny with his flowers.

Super bunny card and I love your chosen colours. I have been having huge computer issues too. My Ipad no longer logs into the Wi Fi via my computer so I am having to buy a separate sim card so that I can use it. Getting to be very expensive so blogging time is at a low and only go lon line at night time. Health not been very good either so like you are teetering on giving up.
Sorry to hear of all your health problems. I am still waiting for the results of my recent CT And MRI scans for an answer to all my problems. Hugs Mrs A.

Sorry to read about your health issues. I use statins for several years and now my cholesterol levels are OK. No problems with my blood pressure. Hope your issues will improve soon.
Good luck with blogging.

A very sweet image for this gorgeous easel card Lorraine.
I'm sorry to hear that you are having some health issues and that you are thinking of giving up blogging/social media - these technical issues can be very frustrating - I hope you can find a solution soon so that you can keep sharing your lovely cards with us.

Absolutely lovely easel card.
Hope both your health and internet issues improve soon xxx

HilaryJane said...

Your colouring of that little bunny is just brilliant, I hope you don't stop doing that and making your cards even if you can't keep the blog going. You won't have let anyone down so please don't think that. Times change and priorities change and they are often influenced by external things like internet issues. I know how frustrating and confounding they can be and your time is too precious to waste. I do hope we will see you occasionally though as I will miss you and your wonderful colouring. Good luck with your health issues xx

Hi Lorraine, just popping by as part of Colour Crazy DT to say thanks for joining in with us this time with your super cute card.

Stayed though as someone who likes your cards and visits your blog as often as I can, to say I'm sorry to hear you are having both internet and health problems. Luckily our internet was sorted out a few years ago after many, many years of bad connection and it's wonderful but I fully feel your frustrations.
As for health, I am also really sorry to hear you are not doing so good at the moment. I don't know if it will help or just irritate but I went through a period of health problems 5 years ago, I've managed to resolve some (DVT with treatment, pre-diabetic with health / food choices) but the high blood pressure I'm on life-long tablets for not what I wanted but what I've been handed so I'm dealing with it the best I can.

Sorry for the ramble, really just trying to say I can sympathise and I do hope you managed to continue blogging somehow. Would be a shame to stop seeing your lovely cards!
