Anniversary Wishes - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Blogger & I are officially not friends anymore! I am able to vist some blogs no problem, but others blogger is having none of it. I am able to see the blog header and then it goes straight to a blank screen saying "diagnose connection problems" Arrrgggghhhhh there is no connection problems as hubby & the kids use their Internet fine, & most of the time I can, I can shop to my hearts content (and did here last night), my emails are fine, everything else is fine it is just some blogs it won't let me visit, unless of course you've gone & blacklisted me lol.

Please let me know if anyone knows of a solution for this, I've tried the ticking & unticking malarkey just in case that helped like it did when everyone had sign in problems, I've cleared caches & cookies, run scans, file clean ups, diagnostic reports say all is fine so I am at a loss as to what else to try.

Anyway lets get down to business.
Today is new challenge day at
and this week we have a
 Our lovely Jane came up with a fabby sketch for us all, thanks hun xx

This little card I've made for my friend Ali's Wedding Anniversary next week & as her and her hubby are off camping for 10 days (I hope they took their wellys) I knew it was safe to make my DT card for them & post it here

Ingredients -
Sentiment - Magnolia
Flowers - Prima
Lace - Kaiser
Pearls - Hero Arts

Would you believe I have had these little cuties since the Cozy Family Autumn collection came out & it's the first time I've used them, shocking lol.

Here is Jane's fabby sketch, I know my teamies & I loved this sketch, I hope you do too
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a whopping $50 in store spending spree for one lucky person

I popped over to have a splurge with my DT spend yesterday (thanks Heidi & Steph xx), I thoroughly enjoyed my treat and then went back for more armed with my debit card lol.
I had a busy day online shopping yesterday, blogger is to blame by not playing nicely lol, I even bought a light tent and some mini daylight lamps as it's so hard to get a decent photo of my cards when a I snap them in my little craft room as it's so dark in there but I get complaints that the outdoor pictures don't sparkle, so never fear girls the sparkle will show up properly when I get my light tent, hopefully and no more reflections from the glass table on my cards lol.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges if blogger plays nice -
Everybody Art - anything goes, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamp Something - pretty papers, Delightful Challenges - anything goes

Tomorrow I have another DT card to share and it's a bit different for me, no scrap that, it's very different for me lol.
Thanks for stopping by
