TAKING A BREAK

Hi all, I have learned today that it looks like my blog has been hijacked and is sending you to somewhere totally different.  I have re installed my Malware programme which is running at the moment so I am hoping that this will sort out this awful problem of hijacking and pop-ups.  I have even started a new blog on WordPress but it has taken me most of the day and I still don't know what I am doing, lol.  All in all this on going problem has given me one big massive headache and I am a low ebb so have decided to take a break from the computer for a couple of days.  I will try to get round to visiting you all as soon as I can, I have been using Explorer to leave comments for the last few days and I may have to remain on that browser as Chrome is completely failing me, no matter what I have tried to do.  Please bear with me while I take a leave of absence.
hugs to all Lorraine x

I'VE GONE PLAIN DOTTY

Well not me exactly, although with the Chrome/Blogger problems could you blame me, lol, it is the cards I have recently made the first one is my 'Dotty' one.
I have used the second of my new stamps that I won with the voucher from Stamp and Create, of course it is Tilda and this one I have coloured in Red with my Graph It Markers and Copics, I also added some Viva Décor Crème Pearl Drops, I mounted the image onto red card, the papers are all dotty and have been mounted onto black card stock, the band across the card I punched with my X Cut border punch and then added some Christmas Ribbon, I added a sentiment also die cut trees and snowflake, I cut them out twice, once using the DP and the second time in black to give them both the shadow look, I then added some Snow Dust and Ice and a red bow. 
I have been a little unhappy these last few weeks with the cards that I have been making so you have not seen them all on here, I think my Mojo has taken a vacation or something, maybe I will get it back soon, who knows.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
My second card is very plain for me and has been all stamped with clear stamps from a set that I have had for some years, they are from The Stamps Of Life.
I used Momento tuxedo ink then highlighted the puppy dog with Graph It Markers, I paper pieced the birthday present and used a couple of the sentiments from the set, this one is actually for a little boy who loves animals, I was asked to make a birthday card and this is what I came up with.

TILDA WITH FLOWER

Hi all, over the last few weeks I have been very blessed and won some challenges, my gift from the 'Come and Get It Challenge' was a gift voucher from Stamp and Create I ordered a couple of Magnolia stamps and this is one of them, I received them on Friday and this one I stamped for the first time yesterday, oh I do love my Magnolia stamps, I am going to try and use them as much as possible, I have so many that have not seen the light of day, this little girl has been one of the lucky ones, lol.
I used Momento Tuxedo ink then coloured her with a mixture of Graph It Markers and Copics, I used a square Spellbinders frame in black to show her up then added pink card candy and pink flower pearls, I also added some cream Viva Decor pearl drops, pink gems, pink organza ribbon and bow, pink buttons, pink flower, pink sentiment and some punched butterflies in black with cream Viva Decor pearl drops.

ANNIVERSARY

Good morning everyone, I actually made a card this week but only because it was by request.  I have had so much trouble with the computer that I lost all heart.  However, after reading all your comments I picked up a few tips and now I can comment by right clicking on the comment button, Blogger is still not as it used to be but I can put up with that as long as I can visit you all and leave you a bit of love. I deleted a Malware programme that I have not really been happy with and that also seemed to make my computer a bit quicker, I am not saying too much in case Blogger or Chrome is listening.
At the beginning of the week my son asked me to make a card for his girlfriend's parents Silver Wedding Anniversary, this is what I came up with and at 3.45 am this morning I was told they loved it.
I have used an 8 x 8 white scalloped card base, I mounted black card stock, silver mirri card and white pearlescent card the latter I embossed with my 8 x 8 Embossilicious Swirl folder.  I then used my Tonic die cuts on black card the white pearlescent, I mounted them to the base card with foam pads for dimension,
I added some Viva Decor Silver Pearl drops, a wide double bow, Lily and a computer generated sentiment.
For once I also decorated the inside of the card mimicking the outside layers with the exception of the die cuts, this time I used X Cut scalloped rectangle dies in the 3 colours, the verse is from my Crafty Caz Ultimate Verse CD, I personalised it to read Mum and Dad, I then added two die cut/embossed silver hearts. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks to everyone who offered me help with Blogger I am so grateful, I also appreciate the time you have taken to come visit me and leave me a comment on my postings, it really does mean so much to me, Thank You.
See you soon.
