The Big Weigh-In

It's Monday and that means a new challenge for mousey lovers at House Mouse & Friends challenge.
Our new challenge theme this time is chosen by Stacy, and it's “Grab some tea as anything goes”. So anything goes this time.

We have 2 super generous sponsors so 2 lucky winners for this chall.House Mouse Designs with a $25 gift certificate to spend in store, and Pizzazz Aplenty with a $10 voucher to spend .

On to my creation these Happy Hoppers are having a weigh-in, I made this for my sister as she goes to slimming world and has got to goal. I go to Weight Watchers and lost over a stone so far but it's so hard, I just love food, I wonder if i'll ever need a card like this LOL! I have used Happy Hopper stamp HMKR1041 Light As A Feather.

OMG my blog display changed over the weekend and this post took my three times longer to write, my window showing me what i'm putting in my post is so narrow and only shows two lines at a time and I can't see my tool bar properly either, so every time I want to change font colour or size or add a link I have to hover my mouse over the bar to see what is where.n Does anyone know how I can fix this so I can see it properly, and I can't upload photo's, when I click on the add image square I just get a blank page with a black line down the centre. I do not like change so this is driving me mad LOL!

Added Info - If I do my blog in Google Chrome I can see everything and add photo's, so I guess i'm changing from AOL to Google to do blogging (SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH)!

More added info - I have now been able to revert back to my old blog interface, please see Shirley's comment on this card for instructions.

brenda said...

Blogger seems to be a right pain in the derriere as far as I can make out the last few days, goodness know why they see the need to change something that works fine.

A lovely HM card as always and such pretty blossom colours.

I had the same problem Tracy, but Lorraine told me how to revert it to the old page, if you go into My blogs on the side is a cog, if you click on this it will show your settings, click on the old interface and it will revert to the old one.
I love your card by the way. hugs Shirleyxx
