Sweet Stampin - Use a Charm



Oh my days - I am not a happy bunny! :(  Where did my old blogger go?  My internet speed is rubbish at the best of times and it really cant cope with all these new features and widgets, it had me in tears yesterday as not one page, post or feature would load. :( Bah! (I got signed out of this page twice whilst writing!)

I sent the appropriate feedback to google/blogger - I dont think they will like it! LOL!! :D

Anyway, onto cheerier things - my card for today is for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin where this week we want you to show us your charms! :)  We are sponsored by the ever generous Joanna Sheen for our monthly prize and also by Emerald Faeries for the weekly prize.

I used another of my favourite Bugaboo images from the bonnets collection, and just coloured with PM's.  The backing paper is Fizzy Moon, the border is Memory Box and the snowflakes are all Cheery Lynn dies. 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope everyone has a smashing weekend,

LOL I've been on the new version for ages now and absolutely love it - hated it at first, but now it's just perfect and works so well. Your card is absolutely gorgeous - love the monochromatic look and all the pretty elements. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Claire x

I gave up on the Following/REader function when Blogger started tinkering some months back but that's a minor inconvenience compared to your trouble. I've got used to this new interface now but hate change being forced upon one!
Love the colour combination & your brilliant use of dies with all that detail. Take care & don't hammer the keyboard too much.

PS - love the way those blue gems/pearls (??) pick up on the spots in the patterned paper & the match in colour is incredible.

Hi Alison, another perfect card. Love the image, so cute, and your dies are gorgeous. That snowflake is beautiful - that's deff one for my wish list.

Sorry to hear you've been having such problems with blogger, thankfully we've had broadband for nearly 10 years - before when we were on dial-up it was terrible!

Hope you have a good weekend away from the internet.
