Oh what fun it was trying to work out how to do previously simple things and getting more and more confused by the second.
I made some cards this afternoon and took pictures of my efforts as normal.
Trying to download the images was ‘fun’. It seemed that the computer was scanning my chip and trying to recover everything on it, which would have been ghosts of hundreds of images I’d deleted. Hubby to the rescue and everything stopped. Literally.
It’s so frustrating for me being used to a particular procedure I’m comfortable with when suddenly a screen view isn’t there and I panic. Both of us are on a learning curve, and if Hubby ends up getting new computer at a later date, at least he will be more familiar with the software!
Seems the view I want isn’t necessary as the system copies my images into paint when I click on the icon I wish to work on. Everything else is the same, so I have some piccies for you of my work this afternoon.
I cut out centre ovals and used some leaves and flower designs on the one edge then added a coloured sheet on the inside. Not exactly how I imagined them, but I think they’re OK.
The others are the 3D 20’s ladies to complete the set with this one:
I have an identical set of four to make up. They are really fat though, so would come in the next bracket for postage, which is about a pound compared to 70p for a standard first class letter up to 100g.
Off for a game of darts now (I haven’t been doing too well lately) and whilst the lampshade below is no longer in situ as we changed the fitting to one that sits flush to the ceiling some time ago,
both of us have had a damn good go at kebabbing the dog food.
