Best Friends


Firstly please excuse me, if i have not got round to leaving you a comment the last couple of days, but due to the excessive heat, i've been suffering with migraines and Alan is now limiting me to how much time i spend on it, plus it was H's school fete and evening do on Saturday, so i have been a bit tied up with that !!.
I had a lovely time with  Christine / Tilly Trotter, but unfortunately i had a migraine Thursday, so we were not able to go Crafts U Love.
Is anyone else having a problem viewing their blog list ?, as i can only see one post, so if you are not on my front page, i'm also not able to visit you, sorry.

Christine and I at The Glitter Pot 

I have chosen to use one of my bear images : Penny Black - 'Best Friends / 1824H', the papers are LOTV - 'Bear Necessities', the sentiment is : Azadi Earles Inc, and again i've used my : Die-namics - 'Fishtail Flags', which i so love, the ruffled ribbon is : Stampin Up, the twine and button is from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'You've Got Have Friends'

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Paper Piecing'

Stamping Sensations - where June's Challenge is 'Animal Antics'

The Sweetest Thing  - where they are up to 'Sketch No: 224'

As You Like It - where the Challenge is 'Favourite Die And Why You Like It' - i love the Die-namics- 'Fishtail Flags' are my favourite as they are so versatile and can be used for male or female cards

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Yep, same problems with Blogger Sam, think most of blogland seem to have it and according the Bloggers forum/help blog it's a bug they are trying to cure (that was Sunday so slow progress).

Can identify with the migraines, had them since a child and not many weeks pass without one or two, it;s the three day specials with 'the cycle' that really get me down though.They are one of those things that you have to experience to understand and those that say "just a headache" really bug me.

On to your card, so very pretty and so pleased you shared it with us at Stamping Sensations.

Hi Sam, there's is nothing worse than migraines especially when you get a cluster of them. I often get them in the hot weather and especially if it's humid - but thankfully, less often in winter. Alot of people don't understand that it is MORE than just a headache - so I really feel for you and are sending some {{hugs}}.

Absolutely LOVE your card - gotta love those PB teddies - they never cease to put a smile on my face. I love that Azadi sentiment too - so perfect with your image.
