Can't leave comments

Hi everyone, I've been trying since last night to leave comments on your blogs, but I haven't been able to leave any. For some reason, Blogger freezes on me each time I click the comment button. I notice there have been some changes while I've been away so maybe it's a glitch with the software. Just wanted you to know that I'm not ignoring my blogging buddies, and I'll continue to visit to look at your work even if I can't leave some love.

There is sooooo much to catch up on, you've been VERY busy, lol.

Beat The Mid-Winter Blues

Hello everyone, and Happy New Year! I hope Christmas was good for you and that you're ready and raring to get crafting after the holidays. I've been doing a bit of gentle crafting myself and made this easel card for our challenge this month at Sundays With Crissy. The theme is Beat The Mid-Winter Blues, and it can be interpreted however you like - whether you want to make a summery card, a card in blues, or whatever the theme means to you. There's lots of inspiration throughout the month over on the main challenge blog.

As soon as I saw the theme I knew I wanted to use this image by Crissy - she's called Beach Baby Jayme and I just love her! So fabulous and she really makes me smile☺ She's coloured in Copics (the first time I've picked them up in weeks, it felt strange to be using them again), and I used the colourless blender to dab onto the green colouring to make her dappled froggy skin. The sentiment is by Digis With Attitude, although I don't know if it's available any longer, and I added some flowers and ribbon trims to finish it off. I hope you like it.

I'm getting round to visit everyone bit by bit, so I'll see you soon. Have a good weekend.
