I HAVE MOVED !!!!!!!!!

After weeks and weeks of Blogger messing me about I have decided to vacate the premises !!!! I really didn't want to move but had no choice. Although my posts are being published on the web they are not being shown in Google reader or not being updated on any of my followers blogs. After over a years hard work building up my followers Blogger has decided I dont have a blog !!!! do you think its trying to tell me something !!! I have moved to WordPress and do hope you will join me there and become followers,  otherwise I will feel like Billy no mates over there too !!! here is a link to my new address baileyrosy no more dolly daydreams just plain old baileyrosy. I look forward to seeing you and promise to pop by as soon as I can. It has taken me an age to sort this out which is why I have not been visiting you all recently. I would like to thank you all for your support and encouragement over the past year and do hope you will join myself and the terrible twins baileyrosy.

Take care

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 65 " Easter "

 Over at Crafty Cardmakers it's once again time for our fortnightly challenge our theme for the next two weeks has been set by the lovely and talented Doreen who has chosen  " Easter ". Now I'm sure you are all in the throes of making your Easter cards and decorations so why not link  up your creations  to Crafty Cardmakers we would love to see them and  who knows you may be one of our lucky winners !

I just a napkin for the background , I applied a layer of Modge Podge to the napkin and ahered it to the card, another layer of Modge Podge on top to protect it. I cut the Easter image with my cameo and layered it over the napkin. Easy peasy you may think but it took seven attempts to cut the image as the wording is very delicate and kept ripping as I was lifting it from the cutting mat. This was my last piece of cream card stock too.  The craft cave was definitely a PG rated zone !!  I am going through a bit of Modge Podge phase at the moment . I have just finished altering a radiator in my sons bathroom  I completely covered it with groovy paisley napkins and it looks fabulous,  unfortunately I cant get a good enough photo ! I am now working on light fittings and switches stay tuned !!!

Undeterred by my frayed nerves I decided to make another card. The base is made from silk kindly donated by a friend who has a fabric shop , although I have to say the beautiful pieces are all silk and far to nice to cut up ! My likkle wabbit was cut with ...... yes you've guessed it my Cameo, I added some lovely lace and velvet ribbon and the little flower I made using one of my molds.
Thought I would share with you this photo of the corner of my living room where I take my photos. Some of you may have noticed that in all of the cards on my blog there appears to be greenery growing out of the top of them. This is the only spot in the house that has some light even though my ceilings are four meters high and there is plenty of glass, I guess I just don't live on the sunny side of the street !

We are sponsored for this challenge once again by Digi Doodle Shop who are offering a $10 Gift Certificate for the store

We are also sponsored by Hobby Art who have very generously offered us two beautiful stamps sets . Please see Crafty Cardmakers blog for more details.

Please pop over to Crafty Cardmakers to see the wonderful inspirational work by my team mates we would love to see you there.

Before I go just another little moan about Blogger. I said on my previous post that I have opened an account with Wordpress and hope to transfer there in due course. One of the main reasons is that Mr Blogger insists I don't have a blog !!!!!!! and wont let me make any changes. that and not burning my posts is driving me crazy. Since yesterday am unable to leave comments on most of your blogs I keep getting the error message service unavailable !!! I think I might have been cut off !!!!! so please bear with me and I do apologise for not leaving comments.

Right winging over lets see if Blogger lets this one through !!!

Take care
