My Christmas in July


I had a fairly productive day yesterday making xmas cards!  Ive no idea where that came from, it must have been my xmas in July moment!  Anyway, here's one of the cards I made using the great sketch over at Sketch & Stash Challenge and I used my brand new Penny Black stamp that I got from Handy Hippo last week.  

The old stash was the bp that were already printed and lying around in my Xmas box!  I think this tree will be making a frequent appearance as I really love how it's come out.

Id also like to enter this card into the following challenge:
Papertake Weekly Challenge
Thanks for your visit!

Can anyone help please, since the mega mess up with Blogger a few months back I have not been able to link to anything.  As you will see my codes are just showing and not actually linking, have I gone mad and the codes are wrong or is there something else that Im doing wrong??  Id really appreciate any advice I can get!
THANK YOU to everyone for your help with this!  I worked through the list of suggestions with no joy and when I got to Clares; hers worked!  YAY!  I love you Clare Bear - thanks so much! The 'Link' button is completely new to me, Id been doing all of the donkey work myself.  And, yes, Chrome is the best for blogging and I have to say I couldnt recommend it highly enough as Ive been with it a couple of years now :)

Love your card, that stamp is brilliant Keryn. Have you tried changing to google chrome? seems to work better with blogger.

Ooooh love this card babes. That new PB stamp is gorgeous. Im nearly caught up with my Chrisst club cards but haven't had a chance to blog them, must make that my job for tomorrow. Right with the linking thing hun you need to copy the link you want to add, then click on the LINK button above where you are writing your post. Paste it in the box beneath "to what URL should this link go?" then you can write down how you wish it to read in the text to display box, then click ok. This is the only way i know how to add a link which people can click onto. Hope this helps hun xxx

Love this Keryn. Great to see you being all Christmassy. In respect of your codes, do them in the html section - I have had problems on occasions when it doesn't accept them - transfer them into the html bit and they should be OK. Hugs, Claire x

Shristmas cards in July sounds far too organised to me Keryn, but very impressive.

As for the Blogger problem, I had to download Chrome to overcome some of the problems and now I alternatee between Internet Exprlorer 7 (I downgraded from 9) and Chrome. It's a real faff, but seems to be working 'ish'.

Hi Keryn

What a gorgeous Christmas card. Well done for getting ahead of the game.

I am pleased you managed to sort out your linking problems.

I must admit when all the troubles started happening with blogger I didn't change anything. I am too cowardly!!!

If ever things stopped working then my blog would have to stop too!!!

Hope you have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
