Christmas in July.....

Here is a card I made for the One Stop Challenge, this weeks theme is Christmas in July.

I have used Anya Angel, coloured her with promarkers and the wings covered with glamour dust. I cut the image out using nesties, the papers are papermania, small snowflakes are a ribbon and the large snowflake is a sizzix die. The sentiment is doodlebug.

At last a card!

Whooooo...... Finally, I have a card I can enter all be it by the skin of my teeth! Blogger appears to be working better - not 100% but noticeably better which makes me :)
I made this card last week for the Passion For Promarkers challenge, the theme this week was gold & ruby. Today I finally remembered to pick up new batteries whilst out! So at last a card.
The stars are red glitter card - but due to the light fading they don't sparkle in the pic - never mind hay?

Blogger probs

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh has anyone else being constantly kicked when visiting blogs??? I visit and a pop up appears stating operation aborted! I hate it, I have to find other ways in to visit - then it takes forever to load, its been like this sine my last card was uploaded.

Saying that it has been a bit better the last couple of days. I have a couple of cards to upload in the next few days, but I've put my camera in a safe place - well timed as I didn't have it for my hen weekend! Which was brilliant :) I'm so lucky to have so many lovely friends.

Apologies for not leaving comments - I have been trying and admiring your work from afar as a follower.

In the mean time I have seen some fab candy in Natalie over at Crafting Fun (who's crafting style I love) is celebrating 500 posts, and is giving away some lovely Popcorn stamp sets.
