Winter Fairy Halla - CMC Guest Designer

Good morning peeps,
This is my first post using my new pink laptop and so far this darn pink thing is driving me nuts! I am having to upload piccy's on my old laptop as there is a driver error somewhere in it all to do with a missing "digital signature" & from what I've read it's a known problem with Windows 7 but do you think I can locate the flipping driver to remove it! I have all the information for it I just can't locate it, so after many wasted hours of attempting to fix the driver problem I do not like Windows 7 & I'm not overly keen on my new pink laptop either because of it. There was so very nearly a flying pink thing over Somerset as chucking it out the window seemed a very good idea lol.

Today I have a card to share as a guest designer at
& this fortnight the challenge is all about

I have failed miserable with making my 3 Christmas cards a month throughout the year so far, & this is only card number 4 so I must try harder to stick to it or I'll be panicking more than usual come December.
Ingredients -
Image - Mo Manning, Winter Fairy Halla
Medium - Copics
Papers - My Minds Eye
Lace & Twine - The Ribbon Girl
Flowers - Prima, Kort & Godt & Wild Orchid
Sparkle - crystal glamour dust & crystal glamour dust paint
Tools - MS Aspen PATP & Himalayan snowflake punch, Tim Holtz tiny attacher & sewing machine
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E21, E11, E00, E000, R20, hair - Y26, YR21, YR24, E51, clothes - E44, E42, E40 / W6, W4, W2, WO, wings - BG0000, W2, W0
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Inspire Me Friday's - anything goes, Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - anything goes, Crafty Ann's - stitching, Crafty Hazelnuts - sentiment without the word Christmas, Glitter Geeks - stitches, Stampin' For The Weekend - sparkle & shine, Sassy Studio Designs - Christmas with a sentiment, Digital Tuesday - Winter blues, Tuesday Throwdown - use some sparkle
I'm going to have another tinker & see if I can sort this driver problem out, if not I'm heading back to Curry's to have a tantrum lol.
Thanks for stopping by
