Festive Friday #44 - Photo Challenge & Comments

Some of you may already know that I have only been blogging since September this year and with a three week haitus in between, so I am still 'getting the hang of it all'.  Anyway, somebody kindly informed me that they were unable to comment on my posts as I had Google+ comments and only Google+ visitors to my site could comment!

Well, I think I have changed that so all you lovely people can comment if you so wish  . . . and I appreciate all of you who do . . . but, there is a downside . . . it seems that I have now lost all the lovely, lovely comments that you fantastic 'Google+' folk did for me!  I suppose, it's a case of, 'you can't have it all ways'  and I really didn't want to exclude anyone.  So, if you very kindly commented in the past and wonders where the comments went . . . that is what has happened!

In the meantime I will see if I can get them back!

Today, I decided to give the Festive Friday Challenge #44 a go, which is a photo challenge and this is the photo.


I was inspired by the wreath mainly and the brown colours for a change, so I decided to make a card, with a wreath, using mainly brown.

This is what I came up with, all supplies are listed below.

Supplies used:

Dies - Stampin' Up, 'Wonderous Wreath' and sentiment die from my stash (I can't remember who's)
Embossing Folder - Sissix
Card-stock, ribbon and holographic dots from stash!

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all your lovely comments!  Hazel xx

I'll introduce you on my next post!! Have a great day!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Well, if you've got Darnell, you've got it all! She was one of my first followers way back and she is the most supportive, kind blogger around! (not that the rest aren't kind and supportive!), I love the cool shimmer of your card and the idea of using an embossing folder is genius! So glad you joined us at Festive Friday - hope to see you again!
