Just To Share & Also A Warning For You Peeps xxxx

So no challenge for this little sweetie bear, but I just had to share - it's a share bear lol xxx. I made it for a friend's baby for her first Christmas.

The image is just gorge and it is Christmas Teddy, of the fabbytastic Janet's over at Pink Gem.

What I loved about it - apart from the cutie-pie factor which it has shed loads of - is that you could use this for a girl or a boy and for young and old alike.

So this is what I did with it.

Verrrrry different for me cos there is no 6x6 base card !!!
This base was cut on the Cricut using the Wild Card cartridge. I coloured lil Ted with PMs and blinged her up a treat with some Glamour Dust.

Now that is not at all different for me cos I do it all the time lol xxxx

The paper is from Mad About Cards and the die cut shape is a nestie which I drowned in the blingy stuff!!!

nd check out those flat backed jewels - they are Svarowski crystals and I got them ages ago from Craftwork Cards.

Very posh or what :)))x

Bit tricky to get a shot to show the dimension but you can see it here just about.
So that's me card and it's one more ticked off the list!!!

Now I did say that I had a warning for you lovely peeps.

I have had a few probs leaving comments this week. What is happening is that as I go onto the blogs, my browser goes completely mad and starts opening lots of blank pages. It takes me ages to close them all down as they just keep on opening by themselves - very weird.

Now as you know, I am not at all techncial but I do think that this is due to some sort of digi nasty out there (sharp aren't I lol xxx)!! Has anybody else had this and if so, what is the best way tho get rid of it please peeps? I've run my anti spyware etc and fingers crossed, it seems to sort it, but I don't want to be doing this every five minutes. So any help would be greatly appreciated xxx.

On that note, I am off to do some work and then I have to go to sunny Birkenhead. Have a fab day and I hope it's stopped raining where you are!!

I'll see you tomorrow cos it's Tilda-tastic Just Magnolia day - woohoooo!!! Huggiest of hugs xxxx

Fabulous card Daawny x

I had that its called 'About Blank' virus! Its in the Internet Explorer 'path' Now, I did find a way to get rid of it but it was so technical I didn't bother. All I did was downloaded Safari as my new web browser [which is all Internet Explorer is] and Ive had no problems since. I also disabled my IE which is easy to do but Im not saying you have to!

Hope you get it sorted, I almost threw me puter out the window! lol

Hi Dawny, love the card!
On the blank page problem you had, I had the same while visiting some blogs. Very frustrating and actually scary! I did the error checking thingy two mornings on start-up and all seems to be fine now.
I'll be keeping an eye on the comments on this post to see if somebody comes up with a better solution.
Keep well!

Gorgeous card Dawny. Any tips on how to get the card out of the Nestie shape you have used under your teddy? Mine is VERY hard to get out once I have cut it and then it starts to rip. I have tried different card stocks. Wont be able to sleep until I know what to do
Love Sarah XXX

Hi there,

I had exactly the same problem a few months back ... don't know what i did to stop it, but it seemed to disappear as quickly as it appeared. I did the virus scans and also a defrag. Jillix

Tracy said...

Awww I was hoping someone would have posted some great solution to this as it happens to me all the time. I have to shut my computer down as the windows that open don't close for me.
Please let us know Dawn if you get a solution!
Great bear by the way, really cute.
Happy crafting

Hi hun adorable card and love the bling!Ye i had the same thing awhile back annoying isnt the word .It takes ages for them to go,spoke to hubby who is network manager he had look .The virus .software didnt bring anything up ,did defrag ,and then he found it sat in a digi file a WORM...Ye we ended up just in time taking back to factory settings or i would have lost the lot.What anti virus have you got?There is aplace that o/h showed me where you can do virtual scan of your comp cant find link.But it was due to a trogan worm that had got into a didgi folder and caught just in time,non of the anti virus software that i have on comp picked it up.When you got the trojan recommends you click on this to remove they want ed something like£350 to get rid which hubby says was bit con!so in end we had to wipe and take back to factory settings ,as bar form loosing everything i had no choice hope this is helpful,it maynot be a trogen but just incase thought id warn you.
hugs judex

Hi Dawny your card is absolutely gorgeous, I too keep getting loads of blank pages uploading only when I open up a blog to leave a comment from my linky??????? I have to keep re starting my PC. I'm trying the defrag now hope it works hugs Jill xx

Liza said...

The same thing happened to me when blog hopping and it is soooo annoying. I changed my browser from internet exploreer to firefox and I haven't had any problems since. You can download firefox here for free and its very easy to use.
Hope this helps, oh and a fabby card BTW!!
