Let It Snow!

For some reason on Tuesday a little box started to appear at the bottom of my pop-up comments window which said - please "prove you are not a robot" and asked you to type a number into a box - this was nothing to do with me! - I have always had comment moderation turned off, - I went in to my set-up and checked and it was definitely turned off. I went around visiting friends blogs and noticed that those that had a pop-up window for comments (like me) had the message and those who had their comment box as part of their page didn't, so I went into my set-up, changed my comments to embedded and voila! problem solved. I much prefer the pop-up window, so I hope blogger gets it sorted so that I can go back to using it.

Hubby is recovering nicely from his eye op, when he removed his eye patch 24 hours after surgery he could already see sooo much better, the big problem is that he can't drive or go to work for a week even though he feels and looks perfectly well, so I am stuck with him here, and by Monday lunch time he was already getting on my nerves. His outpatient appointment is Saturday and we both have everything crossed that he can return to work on Monday LOL!

My card for today uses a gorgeous image from Sassy Studio Designs called Let It Go Sassy.

I wanted to add lots of glitter and bling to the card, so I covered a 4 cm wide strip of card with strips of double sided tape all butted up against each other, added pearls, gems and dazzlers and then covered the whole thing with glitter, pressing the glitter into the sticky tape.
I also punched out some snowflakes from the white background circle before I layered it onto the blue, do that the background would show through, and then glittered the snowflakes and dotted them around the card, adding AB gems to the centres, and finally I added glitter to the cloak of the image.

Digital stamp - Let it Go Sassy - Sassy Studio Designs

I wish you could see how sparkly it is in real life.
