ABC ‘C’ for Charming

Hi all :-) sorry I’m late today ,,, but I slept in and then had loads of stuff to do ,,,,, this jet lag is exhausting !! :-/

We are now onto the letter ‘C’ on the ABC Christmas Challenge and it is Miria’s turn to choose the theme

‘C’ for Charming ( + Christmas)

If you make a point of joining ours, and the other fab Christmas challenges out there, then you will have a lovely stack ready and no last minute panic’s ,,, well ,, that’s the theory ,, just don't quote me lol :-)

For my card I used my newest ( to me) House Mouse stamp. I saw this used on a blog ( sorry I forgot who’s) but I just loved the paper clip ice skates ,, soo funny :-) this one is called Joyous Noel, coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Broken China DI, I used lots of Hero Arts crystal glitter and Star dust stickles on this.

The papers are Bo Bunny Snowfall ( LOVE these) I used plain white card, inked with Pumice Stone DI and then brushed over with Pearl Perfect Pearls ,, looks like shimmery silver, and SU red cardstock for layering. I used Martha Stewart snowflake punches , a charm ( to fit the theme !! ) and a satin ribbon to finish :-)

We have lots of sponsors this week !!

Simon Says Stamp are giving away a $15 spree ( excludes shipping)

I lovve your card, Lorraine! Fantastic colours and your image is so so cute...
I had the exact same problem as you about 2 weeks ago, in spite of my settings which say to show 15 messages. For me, I found that it was an image with a link in my post which caused the problem (not one of my own photos). Try to remove the sponsor's images to see if it changes something, then put them back (differently if you can, for example by taking it from somewhere else..) I don't know why exactly, except in the html the photo looked really strange, that's all I know... I am not sure I am being very clear, let me know if you don't understand me!!! Hugs and fingers crossed! Delphine xx

Gorgeous card his little paperclip skates...and of course your layout! I had no idea how similar our cards were until you mentioned it!
I was going to say the same thing as happened on my blog a couple of times...and I think it was down to me (lazily) copying and pasting in sponsors badges, rather than saving them, then uploading them to the post. Glad you've fixed it anyway :0)
