Good evening. Back with another birthday card that took forever to finish (but was fun to color). Some images just seem to color so easily, and ones you'd think would be a breeze, just don't go that well. This is a Penny Black cling stamp, and doesn't this little fella just look as though he's having the most-est fun? Guess I could have taken a better close up view...sorry.
Kai (PB in the snow) - was colored with copics, with a bit of WoS & spica pens. Snowflakes done with a white gel pen, then some Stickles Star Dust. Star Dust on the snow piles. Silver Sakura pen on some of the trims. There's a bit of SnS Twinkling Clouds sprinkled on the snowbanks & the pompoms on Kai's snowsuit for some texture.
- Snippet of glitter paper for the scant black mat, then some SU paper (forget the color) for the 2nd mat. Purple cardbase embossed only at the bottom area, with a snowflake EF, HLS Fun Birthday Sentiments punched out with an SU punch. Used a bit of the snippet black glitter to punch a 2nd layer, cut in half, placed as a semi-mat.
Some rhinestones for bling, and that's it. Very easy card & I don't know why it took me so long to finish it!
Thanks for popping in, and stay cozy where you may be, if the weather is dreadful. See ya soon, big hugs.
Blogger News: Here is some news which I copied from another Blog. Here's the announcement they made on Blogger Buzz:
In 2011, we announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
