More “P-INK4U!”

Hi bloggies!

SATURDAY MORNING: THIS IS THE POST I WAS TRYING TO GET UP ALL DAY YESTERDAY! MY INTERNET WAS BUGGING ME BIG TIME! Every time I tried to upload a photo the loading stopped halfway with an error message. “IO error”. I got up early to beat the internet congestion, this morning … but 2 1/2 hours later I was still tearing my hair out! If anyone with a WordPress blog can help … I would appreciate it. I have reinstalled the Adobe Flash Driver … I have cleared my cache & cookies … I have done a virus scan … I have rebooted the computer … I have switched off the modem. I have tried everything the support forum has suggested! 

Started Friday Morning: Well … clearly I didn’t get back yesterday with a card … so I am going to give you TWO today!!! Yay! 😉 The first is an INKspiration challenge from INK4U! using this pic. Isn’t it a sweetie!

Added Saturday: So … I kinda took this pic a little too literally!!! And INKspiration challenge … could mean all you use is the colours or some single element (like dots) … but I went for the literal interpretation! It is great to see what the girls are doing with this challenge over at INK4U!

My second card today is a sketch challenge … and I did have fun creating these! Next session Madeline is doing the challenges … so they can all be created with MDS for those who are in the US. But … that is okay! It means I can prepare a project tutorial … and I already have an idea in my little head!

Another pink one … sorry Lynda! 😉 But … these were made at different times … I just happen to be uploading them together! I have included card recipes for both of these cards at the end of this post … hope you are enjoying my challenge creations.

Well … THIS POST HAS JUST TAKEN ME 3 HOURS AND 20  MINS TO POST!!! And … I still don’t think the problem is fixed!!! it is the Labour Day long weekend this weekend … and the boys are all out on their motorbikes this morning. I am going to pick up mum to come up here for lunch … and then this arvo the kids & Gav want to go to “Hang Dog Rock Climbing”. I want to go with them … but … I am also hoping to find some time to stamp!!??? I do need to clean up my craft room first! It has been over-run with bookwork lately. No room for stamping at the moment!!! So … I will see you again … hhhhmmm … not sure when!!! It depends on this stupid upload prob!!! Please forgive me if I am MIA … you can imagine the tears & frustration if it continues to happen. After my Facebook probs this week … I am so TOTALLY OVER internet issues!!! 😯 Hope you all have a nice weekend. I am going to make myself a coffee now … to help de-stress!!! 😉 (I am fine … truly!)  Hugs xx

But … the kids had a fabbo fun time … and I think Gav will be paying for it for the next few days. He is far too competitive for an old guy!!! 😉 Hugs xx

    I would NOT survive your Internet headaches…blogging, reading blogs and commenting has become such an important part of my day.

    The cards, as usual, are fabulous. I particularly love the mass of pink flowers!
    – Was over on your blog last night … but very frustrated because I couldn’t get the comments to load. Kinda ironic … cos I was reading about how to solve the prob on your blog!!! But … I actually think it was my internet … not your blog that was the prob! 😀 Thanks for popping by! Hugs xx

    Oh, these are so pretty Andrea. Especially love the sweet deer with the pearls. Just perfect. Internet, and computer… it’s a hate and love relationship… isn’t it?
    – Definitely a LOVE/HATE relationship, Monika. More hate than love lately! Thanks for popping by to brighten my day! 🙂 Hugsxx

    These cards are gorgeous, loving that deer, its far too cute for words, will have to put that in the memory bank lol. Great job.
    – Hey Melissa! It is so nice of you to pop by and leave some blog love! I have been a little lonely of late! Thanks for the encouragement! Hugs xx
