Question

Is anybody else having problems with Blogger?  I seem to be having MEGA ones, I can't leave comments and nothing seems to be working as it should be, when I click on comment and the box comes up it just stays blank. Any suggestions (polite ones) are welcome.

Thank you so much for all the comments that I have got regarding the problems with Blogger, I am so glad that I am not alone, I turned the laptop off completely this afternoon in complete frustration, I had a headache and was tempted to throw the laptop in the bin I had had enough, lol.  I am back I am able to comment but not sure for how long, I really hope that this gets sorted, before I go completely grey, lol.

GDT FOR THE ABC CHALLENGE-U FOR UNIQUE

Hi all, I was chosen as one of the top 5 in the ABC challenge last month then invited to be their GDT for the month of October, well here I am showing off my UNIQUE project which is a double card tag, if that doesn't make sense then follow me onto my picture display and details......but first let me tell you about the challenge itself.
Grab our Badge
Ok let me explain what I have done, I had a bit of a brainwave, lol, I bought some very large tags last month 8.5" x 3.5", I covered one with some Christmas paper from a pad that I have had for awhile, I then added a 5" x 5" card tag, I covered the top of the card tag with some more of the Christmas paper and re-punched the holes in both the card and tag so I could pull the ribbon through, are you with me so far? 
I then adhered a white doily to the reverse of the card tag and glued it to the large tag. 
I then started to add my embellishments and image,  my embellishments consist of some postage stamps that are part of one of the Christmas paper designs I chose some and cut them out, I also added a sentiment banner, snowflake and a flower.  
This next picture is a closer look at my image which of course is Tilda she is a Christmas Tilda that I have had for a few years but she can be used for any occasion, I stamped her with Momento Tuxedo ink, coloured her with Graph It Markers then cut her out, I also stamped out the candy cane and bow image which is also from Magnolia, I cut it out and sat Tilda on it. 
The next picture shows the inside of the card tag, I used some more of the papers, stamped a sentiment then punched it out. 
The next picture show a different view 
my final picture shows a close up Tilda 
After reading my details and seeing the pictures I hope it now all makes sense, lol, if not just ask me some questions.
I have scheduled this post but would like to enter my card into the following challenges, I will be back a little later to link them up.
See you later xx
