A windy day



Note added Saturday morning to scheduled post:  Is anyone else having the same problem as me, I've had no reading list for two days ? Tried all sorts but it just doesn't want to show me the blogs I follow or the new posts from them - I'm totally in the wilderness !

Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that means a new challenge at Allsorts where Helene wants to see some 'Embossing'. Our lovely sponsors are Crafty Devils and FlonzCraft.


Two types of embossing on my card, FlonzCraft Girl with Dog stamp which is heat embossed with detail clear powder and the background embossed with an A4 folder which has to be one of my most used, some Graphic 45 DP's, pearls and that's about it really.

Have a good weekend all.

Morning,
I have my reading list so it's probably just something temporary. Blogger do act up horribly sometimes!

Sarah said...

Blogger has been naughty with me ( a bit hit and miss of late) but seems to be playing nicely today. Where do I start with this one...? Great image, gorgeous colours and brilliant layout!! It's just like that in Dorset this morning, very gusty, however I did not wear the best coat and hat to muck out!! xx

Astrid Maclean said...

Fab card and just right for this time of day, it certainly is windy here!

Crafting Queen said...

Lovely card. I have had that before and it sorted itself out in a couple of days.

Glennis said...

I periodically have this problem, but after 4 or 5 tries I manage to get my list back. It is so frustrating!
Lovely card, I think the colours are so pretty

Gorgeous card Brenda.
Not having probs at the moment, fingers crossed. xxxx

Sammy said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous card Brenda!

Yes, I've had the same problem on and off. (for over a year, actually). The problem isn't your end, it's Blogger having problems with their servers. One or more of the servers that store our reading lists will either be not working well, or will simply be over taxed. It's a pain, but there isn't much we can do until they fix it (or more likely, hold it together with tape and chewing gum for a few more days each time, lol) x

Oooo what a fabby image and what a super embossing leaves too, Luv Sam x

Hi Brenda, love these girl with dog stamps. This one is on my want list. Love your card. What ink do you stamp with? Or any extra hints for getting a nice impression with silhouette stamps? My reading list comes and goes. I do have bloglovin as a back up but don't know if it has all the blogs I have added recently are on it. I haven't checked. I just keep refreshing and that usually works. I have bookmarked the page with the feeds on it so that's the one I come in on and the feeds are usually there. You could try that if they reappear for you. Hope they do soon. Hugz

Kathleen said...

Everything is fabulous Brenda, the embossed background, the papers and the image.
I keep having your problem on and off and it is so annoying, the longest it ran though was for 2 days and to be honest I can't do catch up on what I have missed as I have all on keeping up with my regular followers as I do like to comment on everything they have made, just odd times it is not possible without blogger throwing it's hand in as well.
Hope it comes back soon.

Love the card Brenda, and no you are not the only one to have probs with your reading list, it's driving me nuts! this is the first time I have been able to comment in a couple of days, not for the first time either, it keeps on disappearing, but as it would seem from when I posted about it on my blog the other day it would seem a lot of us are having the same problem intermittently so you are not on your own with it Brenda, join the club!!

The silhouette is perfect with the beautiful pp. My blog seems alright so far, Brenda! Must be due to the gusty wind over at your place!

MaryH said...

Think Blogger is misbehavin', as I've seen comments about the reading lists on other blogs. Love the silhouette against these pretty blue panels. Lovely colors & embossing and what a good design layout to show off this pretty stamp. TFS

What a great way to incorperate the embossing like this! I find these kinds of cards with so many layers so beautiful! Hope you're having a good week (although the weather isn't so good here), Gerrina

Jaya Raghuvanshi said...

Beautiful card Brenda! Love the embossing and the panels you incorporated in the card!
P.S- I have been facing these issues with blogger every now then since a few months!

p.s. I LOVE the Spectrum Noir blending pencils! There are such good quality for the price and I use Sansador solvent by Windsor & Newton to blend the colour.
Hope this helps :)
