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

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.
