Question is HOW?
I need really really simple basic instructions, just imagine you are explaining to a 5 year old, no I am not joking I mean that, I am really really hopeless at techy stuff.
It is probably so simple that you will laugh at me being so slow to figure it out, but like everything in life when you know how it is easy but a mystery when you don't.
I have tried this:
I go to the blog swipe the name and go to copy.
I go to my blog add the blog addy by clicking paste and add the name of the person after the blog addy. Then I delete the blog addy leaving the name of the person only.
But, when I click onto the persons name all I get is OOPPS link broken.
So what am I doing wrong?
See I told you I need help can someone please sort me out?
This is my take on the Challenge at Crafty Pad. We were to use a Faith stamp and follow the format specified.
I used the Faith face and added the hair, she is now 'Faith Butterfly Maiden'. The Butterflies are drawn and coloured using gel pens and the flowers are done with a white pen. The background is watercolour paints and the outline for the semi-circles is done with glitter glue. I placed the flower sequins on the top of the card to finish it off.
This was fun to make and I enjoyed this challenge.

Ok this card was inspired by the card on Paper Craft Junkies site. It is a little different and was made for the fun of making it.
I don't have anyone to give it to as I don't have any children in the family, so if anyone likes it and wants it then first come first served as they say.
I made it for the fun of making a card, it filled in a couple of hours and I enjoyed making it. More for a birthday near to Halloween I suppose. A shy little monster who needs a home.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge
Tuesday, 17 February 2009
Challenge 9 involved using torn paper, ribbon and two brads.
I have not used torn paper before so this was something new for me. I chose some sparkling paper that I had to match the colour of the card, the ribbon is also a similar colour and the large flowers are have a sequin flower and flower brad to hold them in place. The face is a Faith stamp that I surrounded with leaves and flowers so she is looking through them. The flowers are sequins with a small sequin in the center to hide the hole and stuck on using contact glue. A Best Wishes topper was used to complete the card.
I enjoyed this as I was able to experiment with something new.
Deanne's Challenge was to use beer mats or coasters this is my interpretation of the challenge.
I made the coasters myself from thick card they are 3inch in diameter. I cut some thick printed paper to cover them and used a Faith stamp, flowers and a card topper along with a string of silver butterflies and a Happy Birthday topper to complete the card.
This was fun to do and the card will be saved and used later on in the year as I have three birthdays in July to make cards for so this is one of them.

So this is what I made with them, it used up some bits that I had stashed away doing nothing. So now I have a card instead of bits in a box all thanks to the challenge.

The background is made from eggshell that was crushed onto the card and coloured using an ink pad. I rubbed the ink so it was not too thick with a kitchen paper towel and used gold glitter glue to create the outline giving it a mosaic look. The silver heart is metal and was secured using contact glue and red glitter glue around the outside. I finished it off with the stick on ribbon and small flowers.
Inside I made a pocket and covered it with paper that has a heart design on it. I made an ATC card with contrasting heart design paper and used a heart stamp and a heart shaped brad and wording that is embossed.
