More frilly knickers


Added 17.17 pm 24/5/11 - Is anyone else having problems commenting on Blogger ? I can get to look at blogs via Internet Express, I can do a new post, but as soon as I try and comment it asks me to sign in, I do so and it goes through the same process time and again and never lots me it. I can get in through Chrome, but even that will only let me make a comment on a single blog, then shuts me out. Totally crazy, please tell me I'm not alone with this one ?

Morning peeps, back from Edinburgh and time to share a few more samples I made for Stamp Addicts programme on Create and Craft TV on 26th May (my post of 18th May explains the title of this post).


I managed to squeeze in a bit of brayering with the card at the top which uses my favourite image from the Courting Couples set and thought it was only fitting that I included some black lace.

The stamp on the middle card is also from the Courting Couple set.

And this one is a stamp from the Playful Girls sets with a bit of resist stamping and Big and Juicy Happy Birthday.

Fab cards as always Brenda. As for Blogger I'm commenting via Internet Explorer - I usually blog through Google Chrome and that won't let me sign in at all. Don't know what's going on today - think there are gremlins all over the place! Hope it's sorted soon!

Love Lynda xxx

Julie said...

It's driving me up the wall B,it always appears like I'm not signed in. The other thing that's driving me mad is writing a post,the amount of times I backspace and remove the photo by mistake.... It takes twice as long to post!
The other thing that gets to me is that I'll NEVER be able to use a speedball as beautifully ad you!;)
Fab cards as always,Julie x

PatR said...

Firstly Brenda love your cards but then I always do.
I've been having problems today with blogger when using Mozilla Firefox as browser. When I swapped to internet explorer everything was OK.
It's so annoying isn't it? xx

Sally H said...

Stunning stamping Brenda! I love these. your brayering looks fabulous - a perfect backdrop for the silhouettes - remind me of the scarlet pimpernel!

Paula said...

No problems with commenting - but then I'm an odd fish using Safari as browser so that probably explains that.
Love your cards - especially the first two - those flowers in the first are stunning & I love the gold gems picking up on the textured gold layer plus theose stamens. On the second it is that gorgeous butterfly that I fell for hook line & sinker with the spectacular effect of the red silhouette.
Take care

Sue said...

Go into your settings Brenda and Check all the boxes to see if they are ok, I am with Firefox and have no problems.
Your braying is fantastic on the cards, lovely work. Good luck with the blog/commenting!

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Fabulous cards Brenda, as always. Love the brayering and the beautiful circle flowers.

I have had the same commenting problems as you Brenda- thought it was something to do with the 'puter bug I had last week, but obviously it's silly old Blogger playing up again. It looks as if I might have a problem leaving this comment for you - it's asking me to "select profile" again, so fingers crossed........!! Hugs, Sylvia xxx

KarenB said...

You do amazing things with those silhouettes! Lovely cards, especially taken with the cirle one :)
I also have probs with commenting - blogger keeps asking me to sign in when I already have... so unfortunately some days I just lurk and don't comment :(

Cheryl said...

hi hun yeah i too had problems with blogger thought it was me too but when you sign in if you go to help then latest problems,or something like that it tell you what is going on,and if they are fixing it,and they keep you updated that is how I found out last night it was not me it was blogger.
Anyway as for your cards hun they are stunning you do the silouhetes,so well just breathtaking hugs cheryl xxxxxxx

Sarah said...

Stunning cards Brenda, beautiful images and colours xxx

Nannieflash said...

Hi Brenda, gorgeous card love those silhouettes they are beautiful.
Im wondering if its the new updated Internet Explorer as so many of you are having problems, I thought it was the cookies because if you clear them it should work. But I havent installed the new Explorer and Im not having any problems at all
I also use Firefox and I dont have any problems there either. With hugs Shirleyxxxxx

sallysbitz said...

I have been having problems too !!!!

Tracy said...

Happy crafting

Violets Corner said...

Oh, they are fabulous Brenda, your brayering is so beautiful. The stamps are a real must have, aren't they?!

Blogger is working fine at the moment, keeping fingers crossed, but I've had issues with it too and I've seen that other bloggers have had problems with the commenting too. Hope it comes back to normal soon.

Hugs
Maarit

samara said...

Blogger? Oh don't get me started!!!! These cards are scrumptious Brenda. I love the black out and white out. I looked at your other cards...they are spectacular!!! Do you have a subscribe by email? I became a follower but couldn't find a subscribe by email, which I would love to see your blog with my morning coffee! You are a lovely talented brilliant stamper/creator/artist! Oh, TY for your kind comment; a gal said I could not enter stampalot challenge because I entered others...is that true (even though I did so and you commented?) I apologize if I did something wrong. I hope I didn.t. Samara xox

samara navi said...

Oh, Brenda, I forgot to tell you, while blogger is bulldog-shitsu, you can go to name/url instead of google and it will work. Otherwise, take 2 aspirin and go to bed!!! lol

Heidi said...

Me too, thought I was going crazy, in the end I gave up and went into town bought a bottle of red wine and sat and had a wee drinky with my hubby instead. today so far blogger seems to be behaving, but I'm not going to hold my breath!! Love your silhouette cards (when don't I)they are beautiful. hugs from heidi x ps spoke too soon, blogger has just told me to sign in again aaargh!!

Juls said...

wow all of these are just stunning!!! The first one is just so striking!!! I love all the creative ways you have used the silhoutte stamps! .... more things to add to my wish list! Hugs Juls
