A Gem of a Challenge #44 DT Card - Lisa N's sketch

Hello me lovelies
I am sorry for not being around again to post or comment..well the only commenting i have been doing is just DT, well that's when i have been able to get the net...yes again connection problems so i have come up with a solution.
As we have tried various things to get my connection working properly which none hasn't obviously worked, ok it may do for a short time but after sitting at this computer for hours trying to get it to connect & then when it finally connects i have to keep refreshing the page because it timed out etc so the up keep of my blog should only take me matter of minutes but not with my computer it takes me hours which means i get so frustrated & upset because i feel i am letting peeps down!!
 Look i am waffling on...sorry!! I will just get to the point....anyhoo after a lot of eye fluttering at hubby to get him to agree, we have decided that's its time to get a new lappy...Yippee!!
You see my old one is about 8-9 years old so i think a new one is needed..don't you??
The only downfall is i have to wait for it to come so please bear with me & hopefully all my problems will be solved...well it best be!!

Righto me lovelies now i have explained why i am missing sometimes, i will now get on with today's DT..actually this i have 2 today but will be back later with my 2nd one so first up is my DT card for Gem of a challenge & for challenge #44 our lovely Lisa N has designed this fabulous sketch for us all to play with & you too lol
Cheers Lisa :D

So without further ado, here's my card & hopefully it will inspire you to come & play along with us...
