ok who fiddled with Blogger...


Good morning everyone, how have you all been while I was away, give me all the gossip...we had a fab time and the weather was beautiful except for the last two days then there was dramatic lightening storms and lots of rain...I watched lightening bouncing off the sea, what an incredible sight but no matter how hard I tried I never managed to catch it on film so I don't have anything that dramatic to show you, the resort was so so quiet but very pretty and I liked it although like everywhere else its suffering from the global recession and loads of businesses and hotels were closed and for sale, very sad to see so many peoples dreams just gone like that isn't it, but a sign of our times, I took some photos so will post them later in the week when I'm feeling up to it, I still have a very icky tum I wont gross you out with all the details though but luckily its coming up not the other way lol...ok which one of you fiddled with blogger while I was away, I come back and its changed to the new format thingy...I don't like it do you, or maybe its just a case of getting used to it...right now onto my card for today which I luckily had made before I went away as I'm not up to creating yet...this gorgeous little sweetie is of course from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Baby Angel Muriel isn't she just adorable, I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced the bauble in the same papers I used for the card...they are from the stunning My Mind's Eye - All is Bright 6x6 Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts I love this pad, the designs are fabulously festive without being twee if you know what I mean and the colours are a little unusual but work beautifully together...I finished my card with a couple of ribbons and a little silver tab, Im entering this for the Simon Says Stamp challenge, Dynamic Duos challenge (I added blue) and the Creative Inspirations challenge...I'm off back to bed after taking more medicine wish me luck with the medicine lol...whatever you are up to today I hope you all have a brilliant one

Welcome home Mina, sorry to hear you're ill! Your card is lovely, the colours are so pretty :)

I started off blogging with the new interface, I put it onto the old interface once to have a look and couldn't make head nor tail out of it, I guess it's all what you know isn't it!

Feel better soon :)
