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.
I would like to enter this card into the challenge at
I would like to thank you all for visiting and for leaving comments they are truly very much appreciated.
see you soon..

I wish when my mojo left me I could make cards like this Lorraine! These are GORGEOUS! Of course, as a dog lover, I would have to slightly prefer that adorable little pup, but Tilda looks radiant on red on that fabulous paper! xx

Both of these gorgeous creations are awesome in their own right sweetie. You are talented enough to turn your hand to the elaborate or CAS and both style look fantastic.

Lorraine, just wanted to be sure to tell you that the last couple of times that I've come to your blog, I get a pop-up or redirected to somewhere else and I think someone may have hi-jacked your blog for pop-ups!

Now...for your cards...WOW!! They are BOTH so very adorable!! You can't go wrong with Tilda and the design is gorgeous!! I especially am partial to this fun CAS doggie card though!! So sweet!! :) Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*

You can never go wrong with dots. Never ever (imho). Loved the first card!

And the second one is very nice too. I like how you kept it CAS so the image stands out. Beautiful!

Hugs! xx

Jacee said...

Two smashers Lorraine!! these are lovely cards, the second one is so cute, what an adorable little dog, the first is just great, I love dotty paper, it always looks so clean and fresh no matter what the colour, fabulous work!
Know what you mean about your mojo going on a walk about, I had the same problem a while back, quite frustrating, but fear not, it will come back, I think that sometimes we just need to take a break from our crafting, so don't give up Lorraine, we'd miss you and your lovely cards brightening up our day!
Sending an extra hug, Jacee
