Peachy Keen-Sketch

Firstly may I thank you all for your lovely comments on my new blog look and for the tips on moving my elements in the sidebar. Well I always make sure I click the save button even after save lol I have tried moving one element at a time but it just won't have it. When I click on the element I want to move I can pick it up and move it about but the white box in the background won't move which means when I place the element where I want it to go it just jumps straight back to where it was or back to the top of the page grrrr. Never mind will have to see if someone at blogger can advise.

Ok when I was visiting Eiyiyi (Dropped Stitches) blog yesterday I noticed that the lovely card she had made was for a challenge blog I had never heard of called Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge. Well being a bit nosy I popped over to have a look and its a fab sketch and then I had a look at their shop oh boy my wishlist has just grown by another foot lol. I just love their 'Cheesy Heads' I will surely have some by the end of the month...just one or two lol.

Anyway I have followed the sketch and come up with this card the squares are actually acrylic and I have stamped each one with a stamp in Stazon then highlighted just some of the image with Sakura gelly roll pen. I attached them to the card then added the faux ribbon a sentiment and some flowers. I hope you like it hugs to all.

Lorraine, I've come across this as well. If you are still using Google Chrome, go into your blog via Windows Explorer, do the changes you want, save and then go back in via Google Chrome and you are away. I seem to have to do this 2-3 times a month. Can't seem to find a way around it any other way. Hope this helps. Best wishes, Kym xxx
