Jump Rope for Heart!!

Hello friends,
has Blogger been playing funky games on you?
I have been having trouble all-around!!
With comments, blog posts, etc.
So please forgive me for seemingly slacking off
on my Blogger duties, but there is only so much
frustration I can handle at any one given time, lol!!
Well, despite all that, we have a new challenge for you at
Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge Blog
and it is a themed challenge of
Let's Get Physical!!
Is anyone else humming Olivia Newton John
after reading that, or is it just me???
It's a sports themed challenge and I hope you can join us!!

I uhhhh, hmmmm, well, just ask my stepdaughters, they have assured me that jumping rope is indeed a sport, so I used this cute Penny Black image, coloured in distress inks, papers are by October Afternoon, the punch is by Fiskars. If you click and enlarge you can see how I decoupaged the image :) This is my attempt at Clean and Simple.

I used the sketch from Penny Black Saturdays
PaperTake Weekly is hosting an In The Garden challenge
and that will do as I am already late on this post, I blame blogger really!! I tried to write this up before work and it kept saying like lost communication with blogger, saving could fail or something like that, so I better hurry off and publish before he changes his mind again, lol!!!

See you here soon with some cute critter creations!!

I love your clean and simple creation. Pretty papers and I always love big bows, they are just so...........beautiful! I didn't have any trouble with blogger, but my security program has been updating all day, checking for viruses. Hope tomorrow is better for you. I'm still feeling the heat, wish the humidity would go away!

This is adorable! Love that big fat ribbon!!

Blogger has been a pain on and off. I've got ONJ's song in my head. THANKS.

Elise said...

Oh yes yes yes! Blogger is acting like a little booger for me as well! Gosh, I thought it was only happening to ME! Same problems as yours, and also inserting links into my post is FRUSTRATING!!! Takes me triple or even more the time than it should! And leaving comments ... argh! I have to do like 3 or 4 clicks and redo it sometimes before it catches! LOL!

Anyhooooow, your card is so WONDERFULLY CUTE! Awww that PB image is adorable! And of course you kick it up some million notches and turn it into something fabulous!!! "Clean and Simple" huh? Well there's nothing simple about cutting those miniscule flowers out! lol .. I'd be cutting off my fingertips if I tried that! Of course, I absolutely LOVE the colors, your GORGEOUS colouring, the sweet added touch of the doily, and oh my ... that LUSH bow!!! And that bow has the most fabulous color to it!!! Love love love it all!

Big Hugs to You!!!
