Bon Voyage set - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

I'm here with my DigiStamp Boutique DT card, using an image from the fab new Bon Voyage set.... Such a fun set with loads of cute images and sentiments, although the sentiment I used is from another new set called Birthday Noah.

I altered the image slightly, adding an extra train carriage, as it fit the layout better... and I printed it onto linen card for a change and just coloured it very simply.  It's also painted over with Wink of Stella so it's very shimmery, but it doesn't show very well in the photo.

My latest Blogger issue - I have my comments set up so that I get an email notification for each one, and I go through the emails to visit everyone's blogs and leave comments in return... hope that makes sense!  Recently I've noticed that I don't get a notification for certain people's comments - not for any of that person's comments at all.  At first it was just one person, then yesterday I noticed another, so there are probably more that I've not noticed too.  I can still see them if I go into comments on my blog, or on my dashboard, but if I rely on the notifications, as I've always been able to do before, I now miss some.  I just wondered if anyone else was having the same issue?

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Wonderful card, Lisa! The deep blue and Kraft colours look amazing together.
Don't want to speak too soon but Blogger is behaving itself (mostly) at the moment. It refuses to show my reading list or schedule posts but apart from that...... :( xx

Sarah said...

Fab card Lisa, love the train and your colour choice is spot on!! Blogger behaving for me too...touch wood!! xx

Lovely card Lisa. I've not noticed the comment thing (I also have comments emailed to me so I read them all) but I do notice that sometimes it doesn't show all my scheduled posts in the post list. It's like it starts on the 10th one down, so the ones scheduled for the latest dates don't show. Drives me potty as I immediately think I've lost them, but they're there if click away and back again.

Such a cute card, love the colours. i don't get emails that would drive me mad as I get so many emails already, just go through the comments

I love the dies you have used in this card Lisa and the colour combo is very striking. Blogger has been behaving for me so far I think.

This is gorgeous what a fab set of stamps love the colours you've chosen and the great design gorgeous boy card. Not aware of any issues as I usually get emails as well. I do think though blogger has a mind of its own as I frequently have minor problems I try to use my Blog list but its getting quite big now Love and Happy Crafting Hugs Carole x

Hi Lisa....
A fabbie boys card... and looks good with that extra carriage!

Don't think I'm having the blogging issue that you're having... though it has been causing other problems lately.. I tend to use my reading list to go through my commenting... but it becomes longer and longer... and I spend more time commenting than crafting - and that's never a good thing!

Big hugs

Brilliant boy's card! Love the colour combo and the image. Definitely looks better with 2 carriages.
Blogger does different things to me every day, it seems, but it hasn't done this yet. I hope you get it sorted out soon Lisa. Debra x

This blue color looks so pretty with kraft! The one rounded corner us a nice detail for a clean design!

Love the blues and browns of this card.

So.... when I leave comments on many, many blogs I get "email failure notifications" that say the email failed. I'm guessing that is what is happening to your missing emails, they are bouncing back. But I have no idea how to fix it and if it is a problem on your end or my end.

so stunning lisa.i love the bold blue and kraft combo and perfect boys image :D
i tend to use bloglovin to keep up with my blog list but must admit to not commenting on all blog posts now or i would never get anything else done.
