Still trying-very!

Hi, after yesterday's attempt I've come back for another go.   Thanks for your help Joanne and  Gez.It didn't quite work, as I'd done what you suggested the other day, but by going over your instructions realised that I had  saved the photo a different way - but.. Weyhey it's here! Don't know why it jumped to top of post but I'll work on that after the weekend. Oooh! managed to move it!....but not where I meant it to:(                                                                                                          
I love Elusive Images stamps but this is a particular            favourite,stamped onto grey card,smudged milled lavender distress inked around the edge.                                                                                                             
I am busy working on Christmas books for my grandchildren at the  moment and don't want to spoil the surprise so won't be posting   photos until after Christmas, but I'm quite pleased with the way  they are looking.                                               
When I met my grandson from school yesterday his first comment was "Have you brought some crafting for us Gran?" I don't always, but as it happened he was able to make his mummy a cupcake card (with chocolate chips on it!)                                                                                                           
I hope the wind hasn't caused any damage where you are. I took some photos the other week while I was away and thought with all this wind around some tranquil pictures might be nice to look at.
 Hope these remind you of calmer times while the wind whistles around your house.
(reminder to self - must write down how on earth I managed this!)
Thanks for looking, have a  great weekend,

Well Chris.. whatever you did it worked!
Beautiful card.. I love the colours you have chosen. :)
Lovely to hear your grandson shares your hobby. :) can't wait to see their books after Christmas. Just love your photographs. Definately cheered me up! I spent over 20 years boating on the canal & it's lovely just to get away from it all.. nice to have a reminder on this windy morning :)
Hope you have a lovely weekend Chris. Take care in this weather. Happy crafting. Love Gez.xx

Wow! well done. Lovely card and fabulous photos. No damage here except a big branch off my lovely green acer (used to be a bonsai but have let it grow in a bigger pot). However, I've just been out and seen a dead male blackbird and a male pheasant. So sad. You take care and happy blogging.
Luv Joanne xx

Hi Chris, firstly thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. It is appreciated! Love your blog, the mix of family, crafts and photo's makes for an interesting read! You must set up a followers button so we can follow and get an update from you. Easier said than done I hear you say, and unfortunately I had my blog set up for me so dont't have a clue how you do it....... Anyway, bye for now and thanks again. Sue x

Hi Chris, love your card, I'm a big fan of Elusibe Images too. Your photos are great! I think sometimes it's just a matter of playing with your blog, which is what I do! Somethings work, others take a bit of practice! Don't be afraid of what your post looks like, you can always tweek it before publishing. Now I've learnt where all my photos are saved, I'm doing a lot better! Love S xxx
