uploading pics to blogger


im having trouble uploading pics to blogger in that they take forever, i have followed the steps for uploading and everythign seems to be fine sometimes they upload fine but then there are times it will take forever and i get a message saying the pics are being uploaded and then it comes up with an error message.

our broadband wouldnt be the quickest but it uploads pics to other sites fine. dont suppose anybody has any suggestions as to how i can get round this.

autumn themed swap card

i made this autumn themed swap card for a challenge on Celtic Crafers forum that i am a member of, the brief was to emboss, emboss, emboss, with cuttlebug embossing folders. This is what i came up with, i used brown and burnt orange coredinations card which was embossed with the script folder and raised dots foler. Also used my fave little gruffies stamp and coloured him in with my fave twinkling h2o's.

Im going to enter this card into SFTW challenge theme which is "Autumn". Its my first challenge to enter so hopefully luck will be on my side...

if you would like a go at the challenge its on here:

here is the pic of my card.

Christmas Mojo ......

Is in full swing. Due to our baby arriving mid December I decided last month to make a start on my christmas cards, unfortunately im not an organised person usually and I have totally surprised and surpassed myself cos I actually have 7 Christmas cards done, A5 cards!!! Im really enjoying doing them though when normally each year it feels like a chore, but the xmas mojo is in full swing and im flying through them.

Of course I have over 40 to make! lol! but ill get there and plan to have them all done by the end of October. Ive started a littel production line and its working so I shoudl reach my goal. Also plan to have all the christmas presents bought by then too. :) I will take photos of the cards i have already made and try and post them up, think i have the hang of it now.

I also made a September swap card today for a forum im part of the theme was to use as many cuttlebug folders as you could. Unfortunately i dont have many folders (but plan on changing that ;)) so i worked with what i had and was thrilled with the results. Will also take a pic and post it up later.

Off now to enjoy my sunday dinner.

some cards from me

The joys of pregnancy......

you know pregnancy is great, it really is. once you get over the initial sickness and tiredness and the fact that your body is expanding whether you like it or not :). well something new happened me yesterday....something my friend told me when she was on her 1st pregnancy and i nearly died laughing...oh yes thought it was hilarious i did. Until happened me yesterday!

I was out doing the grocery shopping standing in one of the aisles and sneezed, panic ensued cos i nearly wet meself! so i guess its time to root out the tenas! ;) lol. Had to text my friend to tell her and she nearly died laughing herself as did my OH when i told him. Thankfully i was in the aisle on my own so nobody could see the horror on my face! lol. Have also been told that from here on in its constant trips to the loo.....the joy! lol. Anyway enough of that potty talk. Weather is miserable, it doesnt know what it wants to do, sat here watching the sun shining and then an unmerciful rain shower followed.

Im trying to figure out how to upload pics on here, its so long since i blogged i cant remember and i want to post up some pics of cards i have been doing while i was missing. Hopefully i will get my head around it.
