Hi all, today I am actually able to post a card that I have made using a cute little image from
I am using Explorer as the main problem seems to be between Blogger and Chrome, not overly keen on it but at least I get to post my cards and do some commenting.
I have coloured this little cutie with graph It Markers, I used a 5 x 5 scalloped circle card, I cut some gold mirri card and SU spotty paper with my EK Success circle cutter, I mounted the image onto Kraft card, I then punched a circle and scallop with my SU punches and adhered an Autumnal coloured button a bow and some butterflies.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I would like to thank everyone who has helped me sort out my Blogger problem I just hope that it all sorts itself out soon.
My next bit of news is rather upsetting for me, I am afraid I have to return Eddie to his foster carer, Jess just would not bond with him and became not only aggressive but withdrawn, she wouldn't even go out for her walks.
Although I am heart broken I know it is for the best as Jess is and always has been my baby girl, I tried it out, it didn't work so I will not be trying again.  Jess will once again be the centre of my attention the long lasting love of my life.
I know that there will be no problem in the rescue centre finding a new home for Eddie he is going to bring someone a lot of joy and love, he is a special little chappie and I will always hold a place in my heart for him as I have with all the dogs that I have had.
Some will say that I have not given them enough time to bond but it has been a week and it was so upsetting to see Jess as she was.
I will see you all later until then have a lovely weekend.

Oh Lorraine, I'm so sorry that Eddie and Jess don't get on, but you're right to consider Jess first. Hopefully Eddie will find himself another family very soon.

Thanks for the advice on using Explorer, things are working more smoothly now - as long as I can remember my passwords lol!

Have a lovely weekend!

love Mags B x

A really cute hedgie Lorraine and like your choice of earthy colours all very complimentary.

So sorry to read your news about Eddie ans Jess, it's never possible to know how our pets will react to incomers. A difficult decision for you but I am sure you did not do it lightly and is probably for the best all round.

Adorable card. Sorry it did not work out. Hope Eddie finds a new home real soon.

Beautiful card Lorraine, love the cute hedgehog, we have a hedgehog who comes round every night for his feed, but we haven't seen him for about 5 nights so think he must have gone into hibernation as the weather has turned colder this week. So sorry about Eddie but I think you have to put Jess first and not make her unhappy, hope she soon gets back to her old self. Have a good weekend.

Your card is gorgeous Lorraine. I love the cute image, stunning colouring and beautiful detailing.
I can understand how upset you must feel having to return Eddie to his foster carer but it sounds like you have made the right decision. If Jess is not happy then her feelings must come first and like you say Eddie is sure to find a new home soon.
Take care
hugs Sue xx

Love this little circle card Lorraine and such a cute hedgie image too.
With regard to Eddie, I'm sure you are doing the best for all concerned, if Jess was so unhappy about your new addition then further down the line there could have been even bigger troubles. That said I'm sure you are still sad to see him go. Chin up, he will soon have another home.

This is such a cutie Lorraine and I am glad you managed to sharing this lovely card with us. I thought I was having troubles yesterday and then discovered my server was down. Gave a big sigh of relief even though it was annoying.

So sorry to hear about Eddie but you have to consider Jess first and if she was unhappy it had to be done.
