Global warming...

or is Blogger on a meltdown? 

My sincere apologies for being unable to leave blog comments on some blogs.. for 4 days now I have had no dashboard bar up at the top of my blog.. I couldn't sign in or anything! I also noticed that my followers box disappeared.. will try visiting blogs again this week.

Today I can share with you a page I made recently for a chunky book swap hosted by She. She has worked very hard making everyone covers for the books & binding the pages.. another week before I shall see mine.. I am so excited!

I know this page has been received so I am okay to blog.. Joanne's theme was months of the year & I was given January..here is the sneak peak again from the other week!

Here is the page I made for Joanne..

 click to enlarge..... hope you like your page Joanne?!

The plain mountboard was squooshed with Distress Inks & Blonde Moments gold shimmer then stamped with a rather large snowflake stamp I've had for years.. not quite sure of it's name..sorry!

I know Joanne is a bit of a Stampotique fan so I couldn't resist using Global Warming? quickly sent to me from The Stamp Attic .. thank you again Wendy!

The page is covered in Distress Stickles to give the effect of ice, not sure if it shows up very well in the pic & Glossy Accents on the snowman's eyes & buttons.. his heart was covered with Crackle Glossy accents which crackled very nicely but this pic is taken before it was dry..luckily I didn't put my finger in it which is what usually happens!!

The snowflake buttons were a brilliant idea from Wendy!

Thank you for calling & leaving a comment if you get the chance. Wishing everyone a great week whatever the weather.. we've just had 4 weeks of rain :( & it's raining again today! This is getting beyond a joke!! or perhaps it is global warming??

Promise to call as soon as Blogger will let me.. Gez.xx

  5. Great page!! Isn't Global Warmng fun?....the stamp I mean, not the event!!

  6. Yes blogger is being a bit of a plonker but we won't say that, after all, he just might turn off all together! Lovely page, poor snowman, as a kid I always wondered where they went!

  7. What a super page and a lot of work put into it. I wouldn't know where to start with something like that.
