Blooming meadow... and bloomin' blogger!

Hmm... I now seem to be having the same problem a lot of you are having, with blogger not letting me upload photos - it was fine until today!  It let me do it in html so I've managed, but I wonder what's going on?!


This is one I made because I was getting desperate to get in the craft room!  I've not had much time this week, with hubby off we've been out every day, so I've hardly done any crafting or blogging.  So this was a midnight job last night!

The stamp is Hero Arts 'blooming meadow' - I stamped this piece a few months ago, so I'm not sure what inks I used, but I'll have dabbed on a few different inks and then sprayed the stamp with water before stamping.  The papers are Prima Fairy Belle with some ancient lace I found stuffed in a drawer and some sheer spotty ribbon from my stash.  I added some pearls, a Memory Box Floral Vine and the sentiment tag is a LOTV stamp.

We're off to Yorkshire Wildlife Park today, with my mum and her hubby... it's a bit wet and miserable, but we've booked our tickets so we're going!  So if I don't manage to catch up with you before we go, I'll be around this evening instead.  Hope you have a lovely day :o)

  18. I've got the same problem, Lisa. I now upload my piccies straight to Picasa web and can upload them to the blog from there. Alison is convinced that it's due to the ongoing "war" between Microsoft and Google, as switching to Google Chrome can apparently solve this problem. Tracey x

    I had same problem with blogger - but I gave up and will try again to create a posting today - hope it's back in working order now :) Also - sometimes my photos ends up turned the wrong way when uploaded, and I have to save them in paint again before uploading and then they come right way up when uploaded!!! Weird glitch that...
