Christmas Is Coming

Hi all, What a weekend I'm having, I'm late with my posts this morning for my challenges.
I am having a problems with Google chrome, i'm trying to do my posts, been trying since yesterday afternoon and everytime I try to get on Chrome it comes up with the following message:-
Web page is not available
website may be down or network may not be properly configured

I have tried installing Chrome again, but still coming up with the same message.
I've tried to do my posts on AOL and Intenet Explorer but the box where you type in is very narrow and the tool box above where you click to insert pictures and links is missing so I can't get my photos into my posts. This has been like this since they changed the blogger interface, I haven't used it for ages in AOL or Internet Explorer.
Any ideas welcome.
My son Scott has now got me on something called Safari, so I can do my posts for now.

Now lets get on with what I'm supposed to be telling you about, todays challenges:-

It's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny Black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you.
At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is Treemendous So get out your tree and Christmas trees stamps to join in. It's really not as scary as it sounds so why not give it a try.  I have used a House Mouse stamp where the little mice are hanging up their stockings on the bottom branches of the Christmas tree, and using candy canes (covered in glossy accents) as steps, how cute are they!!!!

We have sponsorship this Month from  Visible Image and now to show you the wonderful prize they are offering to one very lucky winner......

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

2. Creative Card Crew - challenge 24 - Anything goes

4. I ♥ Promarkers - challenge 145 - Anything Goes

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is It's Your Choice So you can use anything you like for this challenge.  I chose to use this fab Penny Black stamp and gorgeous LOTV papers too. I liked this simple layout for the busy image and patterned papers.

Two Fabulous cards, Tracy! I love those candy cane steps - made me smile, as I am always improvising with things to stand on if I can't reach!!!

Helene E said...

sounds like a weird problem... since Blogger is Google's own program it should work perfectly with chrome... Have you checked the faq:s on the Chrome help page?

Liselot said...

2 very lovely cards! The House Mouse and Penny Black stamps are so cute.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your browser. I'm afraid I can't help you because I use another browser. Hope everything will work soon.
