    Making cards - Ideas (part 5) 29th Sep 10 at 11:17 PM
    Welcome to the Card Craft thread where there are many members who are new to card making as well as the more experienced members who love helping others out on their path to making cards. If you are new to this craft please do post and somebody will be along with some advice for you

    Please note this thread is now a continuation of an original thread on making cards - Part 1, the second thread - Part 2 , the third thread - Part 3, and the fourth thread here - Part 4, it may be a good idea to look these first for advice or ideas.

    2. Down the right hand side of the page you should have some boxes with the things that appear on your side bar of your blog find the one with the MSE badge in it click edit
    3. At the top of the window that opens it should say configure HTML Javascript
    4. Then inthe bottom box this is what I have

    6. On yours you need to change the bit I've highlight in red to the address of where you have your picture saved ie your photobucket account
    I hope that helps I'm not the best at doing instructions if you need any more help let me know

    Betterlife - I was really worried when I had Brandon that Leo (the oldest) would suffer but he coped really well, I think it was me that felt guilty for not being able to spend much time with him. Elliot is really clingy to me so now I'm stressing about how he will react, plus I have an OH who seems oblivious to things that need picking up/cleaning/sorting round the house. I must admit it did feel nice buying all these pretty pink clothes for a change, I've got some gorgeous bits!

    Viclspence - belated birthday wishes!!!!

    Louby-Lou-Lou - hope DS1 recovers soon! Hope your glasses and ring turn up too - it makes me so frustrated when I lose things!

    Dallam20 - beautiful card, love the trellis punch and the heart - I keep meaning to get that heart punch! Love the spotty border around the image too - good luck!!

    The-Wife - beautiful card, love the daffodils!

    Tomsmom - glad to hear that your OH's appointments went well!

    OAP1945 - congrats on your wins!!!

    Dragonllew - congrats on your win - I am so jealous!!

    Carmin - welcome back - hope your laptop problems are sorted now!!!!

    Hi ladies,

    Can anyone tell me which card it is that they are always advertising on Create and Craft please? I need some more card, i usually use Rymans smooth but i can't get to one until the week after next, so need some asap or can anyone recommend some i need it to use with promarkers?

    Also is the Create and Craft Club worth it? I am thinking about joining it and am soooooo tempted by the pick of the week!

    And last thing Would one of you more experienced ladies take a look at a card i have done? (i can't post it on my bl*g yet as it is a DT card) I'm not sure about it and can't put my finger on whats wrong with it and to make things worse it has to be uploaded tonight!

    Hope everyone is well

    I'm a member of the C&C club, if you are going to buy expensive things it's worth it. I've spent about £45 off a cricut create, £6 off this week's pick of the week, that kind of thing. I'll easily have saved £100 this year with the amount of stuff I have bought, and you get £10 back when you join.

    I don't work for C&C just like their club, although their customer service skills are shocking!

    Congratulations to the latest winners

    Mel, I love buying baby girl things if someone I know has a girl, I get so fed up of functional blue, green and brown clothes

    dragonllew, hope your finger is behaving today xxx

    I am a domestic goddess today - washing done, ironing done, Alice cake baked (and hefty slice eaten ), roast rib of beef and all the trimmings made and eaten by all. Think I deserve a night of card making, did image colouring last night so hope to turn a couple into cards tonight

    I have a rather nice blog candy giveaway on my blog going live on Tuesday, please do come and join in, would love someone from here to win x

    I was a member of C&C last year, saved a good few quid, what i didnt like about it was this year they renewed my membership without asking! It really stuffed my banking up...

    Oh no, bless him, a friend of my DS1's has had an awful cough for weeks and kept being sick but it was all to do with the cough. Hope your DS gets some sleep and feels much better tomorrow xxx

    Hi everyone

    Managed to get some cards made this weekend. Someone who makes lovely cards has also offered to teach me some stuff in return for me teaching her jewellery making. I find my cards are often same-y and a bit sparse looking. I also want to be able to do some really special ones for all the special birthdays this year. About five people I know are turning 50 and my Grandad 90. So they all need something special!

    I'm doing some blog hopping now.

    Evening!!!

    I've been sewing sock kitties and a monkey this weekend and not much time for anything else!!! I've had some orders this weekend and have been trying to get a few done as I am working this week for the first time in a year!!! It's only a 1-2 week temp job but it's a start! I finished my temp job end of Jan last year as they were no longer extending any temp contracts and then I was back and forth to the US and although I was in contact with an agency no work seemed to be around. I've got to be a bit of a homebird and only go out when I want to go shopping mostly!!! So it will be good to get out and back into the workplace again.

    Congrats to the latest winners.

    Hi to all the newbies!!

    I bought some nice card from Asda last week - I think the brand is Nu-co and it has a shiny finish to it and is slightly heavier that they Poundland type card. I printed some tags out earlier and although it took a while for the ink to dry, I loved the finish on the paper. It was on offer at £1 a pack I think.

    I also found some nice thick card toppers in Poundland which are fab quality and very sturdy - I've put a pic of them on my homepage!!

    TomsMom - hope your OH feels better soon. Good to know the treatment has gone well for him.

    Louby-Lou - hope you find your ring and glasses.

    dragonllew - hope your finger is abit better today.
