My Lovely Supporters

1 Sept 2015


It's finally here the start of the new challenge blog
Grab Our Badge!
and how lucky was I to be asked to be their first GDT, awesome.
The theme is
 I chose to use a rubber stamp that I have had for many years from the Ching-Chou Kuik range I used Versafine Sepia ink and coloured her with Copics, I added some dies, flower gems, butterflies and lace bow.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

This would have posted earlier but Microsoft Edge was not playing ball with me, what a surprise, I had it all set up but I couldn't get the pictures to post so I had to close everything down and come over to Chrome, I do hope those darn gremlins haven't found me already..........
Many thanks for visiting and for the lovely comments, the sun is shining at the moment so I will be taking Jess out, my brother unexpectedly turned up late last night with mum and asked if I could have her as his girlfriend had had a fall and was in A&E, it was nice to have her as James is away working in Winchester for a few days.
 I will be seeing you all a little later, until then have a great day.

Wonderful Card Lorraine. Thanks for joining us as our very first GD. As for Edge. I have had to use firefox to upload photos as Blogger apparently has problems with edge!! Lisa x

P.S. I run Windows 10 on my computer and haven't really had any problems with it. I actually like it except every time I post comments on blog with pop up comment boxes, it annoys me because it asks every time if I'm sure I want to close it! LOL!!
