Artful Times " Tags "

This may be my very last post on blogger enough is enough ! After working hard the last year or so on my blog it seems that Blogger is trying to thwart me at every step. It is refusing to burn my posts and not sending notifications to all of my followers. The traffic to my site has become greatly reduced and even insists I don't have a blog !!!.  I wont bore you with all of the details but I have set up an account with Wordpress and hope to have it running within the next few days. I would like to thank each and every one of you that has supported me over the last year and do hope you will follow me on WordPress otherwise I'm going to be a very lonely blogger . So keep your eyes peeled for an email notification from me.

Artful Times is a new challenge blog which has been set up by three of the former members of JFF, this was one of the first challenges I entered when I started crafting just over a year ago and the talented and very humorous ladies, Von, Neet and Sam have been very supportive ever since. This is their first challenge and they have made it very easy for us " Tags " I made a few quick tags not by best work ladies but my " nerves " and I are at the end of my tether ( it took three attempts to post this ) blogger just deleted my posts on its own and I had to start all over again very frustrating to say the least, lets see what happens with this fourth attempt.

Simple tag don't know who the DP belongs to as the cover has come off the pad , what a surprise !!! I cut an aperture with Spellbinders postage stamp die , the stamp is SU  .

Stamp is Waltzing mouse and cut with the co - ordinating Spellbinders die. Felt for the background and the swirly bits where cut with my Cameo and then embossed with three layers of UTEE.

Ladies I do promise to do better next but I really did want to be part of your first challenge !

Please pop over to Artful Times and support their new venture, the lovely trio have made some fabulous inspirational tags to get our juices flowing !

Right lets see if this my FOURTH attempt at posting this gets through !!

  2. Good luck with your wordpress blog. I know blogger are having a bit of an update starting tomorrow which may (or may not) improve things. Blogger tried to tell me I didn't have a blog too! I'm sorry I've not been such a frequent visitor of late but have just returned from a busy and extended visit in the U.S.

    Have a great weekend

    Sorry you've been having blogger problems. It can be such a nuisance at times. I've had problems in the past and know how annoying it is when it messes up. I'm dreading this new upgrade, God knows what might happen.

  13. Hi Marie, I've just scrolled down and see that I've missed quite a few of your recent posts and it hasn't been deliberate ... I haven't been notified of your new posts which rather confirms what you've been finding. Goodness knows why Blogger is picking on you, however there have been quite a number of issues with Blogger recently for many of us too. Do keep me informed of when your Wordpress blog so I can follow you there. Your tags are great, love the red/black/white colour combo. Enjoyed perusing your previous posts too. Good luck with the new blogsite. Hugs, Elizabeth x
