Avoidance is.....

What I have been doing today!!!
I have a whole lot of chores to finish off and wee jobs that need done but feel really tired so thought they could wait till tomorrow and I ended up in the craft area. Its now partly tidied. 
While tidying though I found this stamp and behold a card was made. Oops!!!
I haven't played with these Stampoutique Stamps for ages. I do love the Quirkyness of them.
I have paper pieced her Dress and bow although her bow is cream it doesn't stand out like I hoped it would.

Card Recipe 
6 x 6 Card
Stampoutique Stamp
2 Christmas Papers for Piecing
Coloured with above Specrtum Noirs.
Sentiment - Stampendous.

I would like to enter my card into 2 Challenges 
Less Is More - Recipe of 3,2,1 
(3 Words, 2 Papers, 1 Image)
(not sure if my card counts as One Layer since there is Paper Piecing, If not Please just remove me from the Challenge Folks xx)

Well I suppose I have procrastinated enough, Must get these wee jobs done tomorrow then I can get really crafty again, Enjoy Your Saturday Evening, 
Big Hugs xx

  19. Hi Hazel! Read your comment on Claire's blog about difficulties uploading pictures to Blogger. I've had exactly the same problem (about 2 weeks ago). It hasn't been fixed although one of my teamies at Sweet Stampin' has explained that it may be to do with the "war" going on between Google and Microsoft at the moment. Apparently if you switch to Google Chrome the problem goes away... hmmm... Anyway, I now upload my pictures to Picassa Web first. Then you can upload them onto your blog direct from Picassa. It takes a couple of minutes longer but at least you can get your piccies on your blog. Blogger would automatically store your photos on Picassa anyway, so you're only really putting them on the other way round (if you see what I mean!). Hope this helps! Hugs, Tracey x


Thank You for Visiting my blog, I hope you have enjoyed your stay, thanks for your comments they mean a lot to me,
Love and Sparkles Hazelxox
