What to do when Blogger is down - make a card of course!

Oh dear, I bet there was some wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth while Blogger was down :(

To waste while away some time I made this card:

It kinda summed up yesterday! The stamps are from the Docrafts Nostalgia Out of Bed set, which I've had for quite a while and been itching to use, and the backing papers are from their Born To Shop Bubbles pad. Useful as one side is patterned and the other is plain so you can mix and match. I kept the card fairly 'simples' as I think the images said it all for me :)

After colouring the main set of images with Pro Markers I then cut a strip of plain lilac using the reverse of a scrap of leftover paper, stamped the irons and rubber gloves and also coloured in with Pro Markers. Wasn't sure if it would work a) on the paper without bleeding and b) on lilac paper. But, positive results on both counts!

After that, I tackled some ironing! Oh deep joy.

Hope everyone is recovering from the trauma of yesterday and even problems before earlier in the week.

My day was made though when my 'all singing, all dancing' Pro Marker storage thingy arrived. Love it - still setting it up so you might just have to wait until our 'show and tell' on Wednesday (WOYWW) to have a nosey :)) Oooer, am such a naughty tease. Have a great weekend!

I think we all went "eeeek" yesterday when Blogger was down. I thought I would catch up with everything yesterday, but I couldn't so I'm trying to get back on track now. I still have quite some catching up to do.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me all those lovely comment. It really means a lot to me.

This card you made is great. So fun! :D

Hi Di,
I actually got rather a lot of the mountain of sewing done....maybe they would consider shutting down blogger for one day every week? :-)
I've just blogged my latest might like a peep at the pics :-)
