AFA, ASFS and a BIG Growl at Blogger!

Howdy peeps! Well, I made it through the weekend. A fab time was had by all and there was much silliness and giggling - just what you want from a hen night really! Totally cream crackered though so feel I may have to have an early night tonight ☺. I've updated my profile pic with one of the photos of me from the night but, for your entertainment, will try and get another more amusing one on here later in the week.

Now. On to my grumble..... I'm really piddled off with Blogger! Because I've been a bit busy lately, I've scheduled quite a few posts. Every time, I've change the date and time, clicked the publish button and then double checked that it has 'scheduled' next to the post in the 'edit posts' section. The only problem is, Blogger keeps taking it upon itself to change the scheduled post back to draft form and subsequently doesn't bother posting it! GGRRR! Is anyone else having this problem? It's so intermittent, it's driving me crazy!

Because of this, my Anyone for Anya DT card has not posted this week! In addition, whilst trying to sort this out, I realised my GDT card for A Spoon Full of Sugar last Tuesday didn't post either! I'm so annoyed! Huge apologies teamies, so sorry my cards haven't been where they should have been when they should have been. 

So, better late than never, here they are..........!

Anyone For Anya?
This week at AFA we are sponsored by one of my favourite ladies - Tracy at Dies to Die For - and we want you to create something Egg-stra Special! You could make an Easter card or just incorporate ovals in your design. All we ask is that you use your Greeting Farm stamps. 

I was a little bit stumped with this one and so got my thinking cap on! I ended up altering one of the new TGF digi images and adding some Easter eggs. Please don't look too closely at those eggs, there are some very funny shapes in there!

Goodie List........
Digi Stamps: Freaky Flutter by The Greeting Farm
Paper: Pink Petticoat.
Copic Markers: E00, E11, E43, E47, E49, E50, R20, R22, R81, R83, R85, Y17, Y21, YG03, YG63, YG67, B91, B93, B95, B97.
Tools & Embellishments: EK Success border punch, ribbon from stash.

A Spoon Full of Sugar
This week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar, Whimsy are sponsoring the challenge. The lovely Debbie asked all of the Whimsy DT whether we would like to be guest designers and of course, we all jumped at the chance to get involved! The challenge was to make a Easter card and once again, those freestyle Easter eggs made an appearance! This time, I masked off the pear that Peartunia was holding and instead drew in an Easter egg {badly}....! I also designed a little bit of Word Art to finish off the card.

Goodie List........
Digi Stamps: Pretty Peartunia by Whimsy.
Paper: Bloom & Grow - Zoe Pearn.
Copic Markers: E00, E11, E43, E47, E49, E50, R20, R22, R81, R83, R85, Y17, Y21, BG15, BG34, BG49.
Tools & Embellishments: Word Art and ribbon from stash. 

So there we go. Sorry everything is so late - I am totally going to blame my tools on this occasion! Stupid technology! ~♥~

Brilliant cards Stacey! I love the altering that you did! very clever!
Loving your new pic! you look very glam!
I am having issues with blogger too, but different to yours. It keeps making me sign in to leave comments when I am already signed in! GRRRRRR! so it's very time consuming and annoying!
Hope you get your early night and feel nice and refreshed! looking forward to seeing more piccy's of your weekend too!
