Excuse me whilst I...

...SCREAM!!!

My internet service and Blogger must have had a fight, spat, whatever and they are not playing nice. Everything is running very slowly and whenever I try to do anything it seems to trigger 'hissy-fit' time and I get that silly rotating circle and a 'not responding' message. It is making it very hard to do anything on Blogger.

I didn't have time this morning to post a card that I made for the Paper Shelter challenge 'We love animals' but didn't think it would be a problem as I would have more than an hour when I got home from work to do it before the deadline...think again. I finally got onto the Paper Shelter site 4 mins after the close of the challenge grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I'm not having this kind of problem accessing anything else via t'net so it has got to be something to do with Blogger. Anyway, rant over and here is the card I made...
The base card was made some time ago to try out the mechanism (I had attended a card workshop and we had made this style of card and I was trying to remember how...) but I never decorated it. If you are wondering what kind of mechanism...
...it's one of those magic slider thingies.
The panels have been decorated with stamped images that have been 'water-coloured' using a variety of Marvy & Zig pens.
Isn't this just the cutest image.
The main panel on the front of the card was also decoupaged (just the 3 mice and only one layer).

There are a few of my favourite challenge sites that I will be giving a miss this week as I do not have suitable images for the themes set (LOTV is one) but I have a few cards on the go and plenty of digi images that I need to get coloured so I think I've got plenty to keep me occupied.

Thank you for dropping by...........................

Only 4 minutes...?! Couldn't they let you play... just this once - as being late wasn't your fault?
It's a fantastic card - love the slider image of the mouse riding on the clockwork mouse *lol* Perfectly placed!

Shame that blogger is being a pain in the derriere and you missed the deadline as your card is gorgeous!! I love cards that 'do' things... and those little panels at the side are brilliant!!

Frustrating to say the least! I've been having a few issues myself but never know if it's just me or Blogger! I'll blame blogger...LOL Your card is sooooo darn cute! What a great image! I've yet to make a slider card but after seeing this, will add it to my to do list!
