What is going on with blogger???

Hiya peeps,  well Im not happy...

Since the 22nd July (and its the 29th July today) I have not been able to leave any comments or replies to my blog let alone all the blogs that I follow!!!  Im getting so frustrated as it not only means that I cant reply, to thank everyone who has left me such wonderful comments on my blog posts/entries, I cant, also, enter in to any blog giveaway that I may find or I cant compliment any of the beautiful creations that are on & about on blogland...

I anyone else having this problem or can anyone help me as to what I have to do/what have I done to stop these comments showing/actually appearing on peoples/company blogs.

Im so sad as I really do appreciate every single comment/word that I receive, so, for now, Thank you & I sincerely apologise for any distress I may have caused.

Take care peeps and please, keep commenting!!!

In the Summer time..

Morning peeps,

Are you singing along with me??? "In The Summer Time" by ,If I remember right, was sung by Mungo Jerry back in 1970, but of course I may be wrong. By todays standard though its very wrong to "have a drink have a drive" as it states in the lyrics..

My project this week for Crafting Musketeers halfway reminder is a gatefold card using an image by this months sponsor of The Hobby House.  I did buy my own toppers for this challenge but the beach huts are so cute & I can use the rest of the sheet in other card/projects.
The ribbon I used is from The Nautical Collection at Crafty Ribbons.
You can clearly see how I made this card so Im not going to bore you., but, as always, if you do wish to know, then please email me or leave me a comment & I will get back to you asap.

I hope  you have enjoyed my creation this week, and maybe you will see at least one more creation from me before the week is out. ;0

Happy Crafting peeps

My 1st project as a new DT member for.....

Hiya peeps, a gorgeous day ahead for us again, or at least most of us will do.

I'm on a new Design Team!!!!! Oh I'm so pleased to have been asked to join the fabulous
Design Team at Through The Craft Room Door !!!!

My first project for them was made using a beautiful image from the fabulous company
called Fitztown, who incidentally is one of the other DT's that I am honoured to be a member of.

I used Cameo 9 for my easel card. I have previously coloured this lady in beautiful colours of Teal and Purple on separate occasions but this time I wanted a much softer effect so I opted for Peaches & I think, that Ive done a fabulous job of the colouring.. I used a mixture of Graph It markers & Promarkers to colour her, with a touch of Sakura Gelly Roll glitter colour of "clear star".  Die cuts are from the Majestic Element dies from the Nestability range at Spellbinders. The sentiment "To My Wonderful Wife" is a die cut from Tonic Studios.
I hope you all like this creation xx
