CHRISTMAS TIME

Hi all, I have a card that I would like to share with you and enter into some challenges.
I have been doing some commenting and noticed that quite a few have changed the commenting mode and turned on word verification, I haven't been on blogger until today so not aware of the problems, I do know that Blogger is on a go slow....again......also the pictures on some blogs are not showing up, I have been busy making yet another Christmas cake (my 4th) and finishing off my cards for the family, I am continuing with commenting after posting this card, I do hope that Blogger is not going to go rogue again I am still recovering from the last bout of problems.
Anyway onto my card, I have made a Christmas one but not in the traditional colours I have gone for pink and brown my all time favourite colour combo.  The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs who are unfortunately closing down, I have used a newer image from Sheri Baldy  this one is called Blakely Flower Hat, I have mounted both the papers and image onto gold mirri card, I added a triple pink organza bow, doily, pink flower pearls, pink and brown Poinsettia's, stamped sentiment and punched gold snowflakes, the image I coloured with Graph It Markers and Copics.



I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I would like to thank you all for visiting, and for leaving me such wonderful comments, I do hope that you do not encounter any problems but are allowed to enjoy what I have posted. Take care.

This is beautiful lorraine. Blogger is being a b#gger. I had to change the way on my comments box to embedded. Don't like it but hey ho can't stand that verification thing. X if you come across blogs with it if you ignore it and post comment it works Lorraine

cotnob said...

This is a beautiful card Lorraine, such a gorgeous image and I love your pink and brown colour combination - it's one of my favourites as well. I love all of the pretty details on your card.
Blogger has turned Comment moderation on unless you have embedded comments on your blog - yours has it turned on. Don't worry though you can just ignore it and the comments still publish.

This is gorgeous Lorraine, so pretty. Apparently you can ignore the verification and your comment will publish...it's also showing on your blog and you can get rid by changing your comment settings from a pop up to embedded. Carol x

What a beautiful card and as always your coloring is amazing! I know blogger has had problems - right now if I click on any of them the blog is in this tiny little picture and print down the middle that I can't even see where to comment - IF I could see more than a postage size stamp of the layout or card itself and I don't know how to fix it

KraftyKoolKat said...

Such a beauty sweetie. Awesome pretty colouring.

PS. I have found loads of word verifications, but one of my team noticed that you can just ignore the verify bit and comment and it lets it through anyway!!!
