Boo - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I am slowly catching up with some housework, I can't do mess it's driving me nuts not being able to have my usual cleaning frenzy every day and my poor garden is starting to look like a jungle lol.
I am having problems leaving blog comments grrrrrrr, I have tried & tried but blogger is having none of it. I'm not being asked to sign in it just won't publish my comments, is anyone else having the same problem or know how to fix it this time?
 EDITED - Thanks so much for the helpful suggestions, I'm trying Firefox and fingers crossed it seems to be working and I am able to comment again xx

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely comments I get left for me, it's always nice to have so many visitors I'm just sorry I have been unable to return your comments due to blogger being naughty again, I've had to make do with silent hopping, fingers crossed it won't last.
On the subject of comments I don't want to offend or upset anyone but PLEASE don't leave me comments with adverts & links to websites / products in unless of course it's from DT members linking to their own challenge blog. I will not publish the comments with the advertising links in which is a shame as they are such lovely comments but I don't endorse these sites / products, I don't know if these links are "safe" or contain a virus as some peeps have had left on their blogs & I don't want my blog used for free advertising. I hope the lady concerned understands & isn't upset by me saying this as I really do appreciate your lovely comments..
Thanks for stopping by

  14. Beautiful Card... And image in black and white.... Great.....!!! Beautiful Card.!... I do not have problems leaving comments... So mabye you can try to log out and then log in again... Sometimes it gets jammed when we never logout from our own computer... it is worth a try I guess!

    I agree about the advertising in comments.... I do NOT have Paid advertising on MY blog... So i do hope everyone respect that ..And NOT advertise on MY blog.... That I can do myself ... For products that I like.... .. :o).. Big hug from me...

  15. Gorgeous Mandy, your card is stunning, I love the colours, deign and your stunning details but the
    the monochrome of Tilda and image is sensational!!

  16. OOOOhhhhh spooky or what....Fab card Mandy, I just love Halloween, this is brilliant...stop stressing about the H/ me, it will still be waitng for you when your

  17. cute is tilda ?
    lovely card
    and the flowers with the rose as the centre ..they are breathtaking ...

  18. I love this card Mandy and the green stickles around the flowers looks fab. Lee xx

  19. Hi Mandy, I love love your work & this little cutie is wonderful. Love all the extras you add to make it a one of a kind ... I too have had MAJOR problems trying to leave comments. It doesn't make sense cuz it will let me comment on one blog & then the next no matter what I do it won't go thru. If I go out & resign in & uncheck the box to keep me signed in sometimes it will then work. Very frustrating when you're trying to let people know how much you enjoy what they've done & then blogger is being a bad boy !!! Anyway I do love your work & hope THIS comment goes thru.
    Hugs, Janie

    Luv CHRISSYxx
