Mayan Calendar Predicts Blogger Outage!!

Not really. That's just stupid.

But it would be funny if it did. Or if we could find it in Nostradamus' writings. Actually, I'm pretty sure someone will.

Anyway, I'm super grateful for all the wonderful things that the people at Blogger do for me, absolutely free of charge, and so I'm not going to yell about a little downtime. After all, a single website is very difficult to keep running smoothly, so I can't even imagine what a squillion websites take in terms of support and expertise.

So thanks for my blog, Blogger peeps!

I made a card for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - on time and under budget, believe it or not!!

This was our trigger image, called "Skirting the Issue":

I was inspired by the earthy colors and stripes to do this...
Stamps: Simple Delights (SU! Retired) LaBlanche Paper: Whisper White Ink: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Cameo Coral (Retired), Wild Wasabi 
Accessories: Blender Pen, Glue, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Tim Holtz Embossing Folder

I just used the inspiration colors to color the image, and represented the stripes with that sunburst. 

Here's a closeup of my glittery dragonflies...

We should delight in simple things. Like Blogger working seamlessly 99.99999% of the time. :)

Happy weekend!


  1. Added this to my visualizeUs List. It's gorgeous.

  2. I love this embossing folder and now I have a whole new way to use it. Thanks so much for sharing and I'm glad you're back!

  3. Hear, hear! It really sorta blows my mind that I get to use Blogger, and enjoy all of the wonderful things that have come into my life because of Blogger (*ahem, you!*) absolutely free of charge. Annnnndddd... your card is STUNNING!! Love it to the moon and back.

  4. Wow, Lydia. Wow. WOW. That is beautiful. Good work, lady!

  5. Thank you for an upbeat, positive approach to a tiny blip on the blogger screen. Now on the other hand, if it was AT&T, .......

  6. are so witty! I love to come here and read your entertaining and pithy! I agree with you about blogger...this is a free service and sometimes acts of God are unforseeable!
    Love your card...that embossing is a fantastic effect and the sentiment at the bottom is lovely!

  7. LOL - I totally forgot you were on blogger when we were laughing about that yesterday...Glad you are back in free action! Hugs!

  8. Really a nice card, I like the way you used the Tim Holtz folder, have to keep that in mind next time I go to Archivers. We always figure Blogger will work for us and when it doesn't......kinda like when the electric goes out in a storm, we're lost without it!!!!

  9. Gorgeous card, Lydia. I love how you stamped the image under the dry embossing.

  10. Love's true...cut Blogger some is free, after all... *smile*

  11. I know you have already been told this multiple times today, but you should have been because your card IS gorgeous! Wonderful take on the trigger!

  12. Hey Lydia! What a beautiful approach to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  13. I *almost* went over the edge about the Blogger outage...but helloooo...What an awesomely FREE service Blogger is and WTH am I complaining about when those guys worked their tails off to get it running again? OMG. Shameful. I <3 Blogger. I love Google. LOVE.

    I love your challenge card! And there is that awesome embossing folder again. Beautimous!!!

  14. This card is so beautiful! I love it! I just became a follower of your blog! Come on over and follow mine! I'm offering a chance to win some Birthday blog candy. I'm very new!
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
