Is Mr Blogger not well??? + CLP Challenge-30 + Basicgrey Challenge-Sparkle

Good morning everyone now is it just me or is Mr Blogger not very well, is anyone else having problems loading and viewing photos and commenting...oh no sudden thought I hope its not just me lol...I have another chapter to the giant spider saga, I found one in the folds of my pink spotty fluffy (my fav) dressing gown this morning...my scream would have splintered glass as it ran one way and me the other lol...sneaky little thing hiding from me in the folds, I looked it up on the net now apparently its global warning (yet again it gets the blame) the spider need a larger skeleton to be able to keep cool therefore larger spiders and yes its official they are getting much much bigger which is why we aren't seeing as many flies about, see you learn something new every day lol...anyway my card for today is using the CLP challenge sketch and hopefully its sparkly enough for the Basicgrey Sparkle challenge too...this is the fantastically cute Santa Louis from Mo's Digital Pencil, isn't he so sweet and funny on his doggie oops soz reindeer lol...I coloured him with Distress inks and glittered his hat...I also used the fantastic Basicgrey Jovial paper pad, I love this pad its both traditional but not if you know what I mean and its from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I cut some of the flowers and baubles from the papers and raised them and finished with a piece of organza ribbon with Merry Christmas on it that my mate Liza sent me ages ago...I hope you like it and have a wonderful spider free day everyone

Stunning card Mina and no, you're not the only one having issues with Mr Blogger - 2 days I couldn't upload directly from my laptop, I had to upload to the online gallery and then choose images from there - nightmare! I hope he gets better soon - oh! and I hope you have a spider free day too

Hi, Mina. I'm not having great problems with Blogger, actually. Sometimes the service is unavaylable but it turns on quickly. Your spider saga reminds me of Harry Potter and Aragog! About the card, it's such a cutie and I adore the tartan paper you used! Hugs. Miria. p.s. you'll find a similar MC organza ribbon on my next post!
