CD Sunday Challenge - 20 February 2011

I was asked to make a card for a customer for a very special friend of theirs.  The topic this week at CD Sunday is "get ahead - get a hat" so this card was perfect for this challenge.  It is from my Deco Follies My Craft Studio CD.  The card turned into quite a nightmare to make as I still don't have a fully functioning version of either My Craft Studio Standard or Professional - despite swapping our XP computer with my son's Windows 7 computer which leads us to believe it's not talking properly to our HP printer as everything will look fine and fitted in print preview and when it prints out it's a lot bigger and therefore doesn't print onto the page no matter what you do.  As I use the package for most of my cards I am deeply disappointed and frustrated with what's happening and still haven't heard back from My Craft Studio.

As the image for this card is so stunning I didn't think it needed much or it would detract from this.  The card.  I simply finished it off with some pearls, sentiment off the computer and a little ribbon/flower/pearl embellishment.  I printed off two of the same A5 images so that I could do some decoupage.

This card also fits the following challenges:

If the Shoe Fits Scrap It - Happy birthday
I Did it Creations - Anything goes
My Time to Craft - Hats
Do You Stack Up? - Anything goes
Moving Along With the Times - Fashion
Paper Romance - Anything goes
Paperplay - Let's get sentimental

I have this CD too, it's lovely, but it is the one I had the problem with when I changed the colour of a chair - it changed colour on screen but then printed out in the original colour. MCS told me to see if there was an update for my printer but there wasn't then they sent an upgrade disk - as I said before I'm not sure if it fixed the problem or not as I haven't bothered changing colours of stuff lately.

It took them ages to get back to me too when I emailed them - I wonder if you get better service by ringing them. Must admit I'm trying to sit on my hands when anymore disks become available.
