Blogger Nightmare

Afternoon all.....
God how I have had a time and a half with this blog of mine....frustrating is not the word....for love nor money I simply could not upload my photos onto my blog and various attempts am afraid I developed Tourettes and the blinking computer nearly went out the window.  Went to various sites asking for help as it seems that others have experienced the same problem....suffice to say all is sorted now Google Chrome now downloaded and hey presto am back on track!!!
So after losing a few pounds with stress ...and albeit it a few days late!  Here is my card that I made for this weeks new challenge over at our GlitterNsparkle
The theme is "Use a Digi"
and we are sponsored this week by
A Day for Daisys - $12 certifictae

My image is

coloured in with promarkers
embossing folder by Crafters Comanion - Embossilicious

As always am going to enter this card into a couple of challenges too

Right that's all for lovely to be able to post and upload now...won't take it for granted again!

How time flies.....

The expression "how times flies" usually ends  with "when you are having fun" but in my case for the most part of this year (up to now) its been anything than that.  Sat here in my kitchen typing away with the realisation that its been a good 6 months since I last "blogged" and wondering how on earth does time fly so quickly??   The start of this year was not something I would wish on anyone involving my youngest daughters health but very slowly we are moving forward a few small steps at a time and as I write this blog she is in the front room taking her first exam (English) under the watchful eye of 2 adjudicators....something I didn't think she would be able to do after everything she as been through.  Am fit to burst with pride over that accomplishment alone regardless of the result.
Today also marks a sad occasion as its the birthday of a special friend who was taken away from us far too early only 9 short weeks heart still breaks thinking about her and she is dearly Dawn if you are up there celebrate in style missus and hope you are boogying on down with your idol Mr Presley!! xxxx
Moving on...I am still on the DT for Glitter N Sparkle and although I may not have been up to regular blogging on my own page I still have been creating with the fab images we get over on there.
