Something Snowy

Mid November and I appear to have got back on track with my Christmas cards - how about you lot, still a few to make?

If so, why not join us over at Diva's By Design in this weeks challenge which is

Something Snowy

Obviously you don't have to make a Christmas card as long as you follow the theme, but I chose to go Christmas just for a change!

Sopnsoring us this time are the fabulous Bunny Zoe's Craft who have a fantastic range of products and are giving our lucky winner

Winter Wonderland - For A Child
CHCC - Outdoors - well snowmen shouldn't be in!
Papertake - Snow & Ice
Sketch n Stash No 21 - using all old stuff this time, nothing new

I was with Leelou blogs, but when they decided to remove their backgrounds I decided to make my own. Got hubby to do all the hard work, but we can't quite get it right!  2 problems exist

1. I can't shift Leelou off and get rid of their stuff and button on top left. (And this may be why prob 2 exists.)

2. The back ground sheet only falls over the first 2 inches on the blog where the banner is, then stops and continues in the Leelou background.

So kiddies, how do I sort this? I'd really appreciate some help with this.  My lovely Laurie has been a great help and I'm sure would sort it if she was sat at my computer doing it, but via email I just don't get what has to be done! Jx

Aww! this is gorgeous Janice… he's one very cute snowman! I love the gorgeous papers and how you've layered up... the sparkles are fab!
I've just ordered some Christmas Cards online - shock horror!! Lol - I've made quite a few throughout the year but can't get motivated to make more… but think I'll have enough for my blogging friends though which is good! :-))
Big hugs

p.s. I love your new header - it looks gorgeous!
I had the same problem when I tried to do my own background on my blog. It kept tiling or else was too short... I gave up in the end and used one of the template backgrounds. Sorry I can't be of more help hun! One day I will work out how to do the blooming thing!! Lol Love S xx

Claire said...

Lovely card Janice, I do love this image and great icy colours too. I think you need to go to simple layout and you may still need to remove some codes, its a case of playing with it, much easier to do irl than over the blog. Hope you get it sorted. Hugs, Claire x
