4th of July

I have been meaning to make a card for the 4th of July for weeks now.  When I was looking at the Cards blog I saw that the challenge this week was a 4th of July card.  So there we go.  I had saved several vintage images weeks back and finally printed them off.  I thought the children holding the flag was so sweet.  I am also entering this in Paper Crafts StarCurtain Call, and Wee Memories.  All have Red White and Blue challenges. 

******I need help.  When I was commenting the other day on someones blog, I did something and my little picture disappeared and went to that generic silhouette (in the followers box).  I am able to go fix it on each individual blog but man that is a lot of blogs to fix.  What did I do?  Also when I put my pics on my post it automatically puts it at the top and wont let me put them under my typed text.  I have to post the pic and delete it several times then it will finally realize where it is supposed to go and stay there.  This all happened after they updated Blogger and put the new design stuff in.  I am not so computer savvy now girls.  Can anyone help me?********

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Kraft
DP: PTI/Bitty Dots 2009
Image: Off the internet
Seambinding: Blue Bird Paperie
Doily: Wilton/ Sprayed it with Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist
Buttons,  from my stash

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Heather

This card is so sweet. I love the red, white and blue colors. I don't know how to fix your computer problem. I am so afraid to do my own blog layout because I'm afraid I'll mess something up.

Linda Robinson said...

Perfect for the 4th.. Love that red doilie!

My picture do the same thing.. I can just move my pictures by right clicking on them and then
holding right button down on top of picture and it moves.. same with Text.. I have learn to make sure I load my picture the way I want them and then writing my text.. but sometimes I want to add a picture at the last minute..
and then its a pain..
I do believe these computers have a mind of there own, cause what works on mine might not work on yours...
Good Luck.

I LOVE LOVE this card Heather! I'm nuts for vintage and this is too cute.
I'm still using the old post editor and am definitely NOT blog savvy, so I don't know if this will help, but if you need to move your photo you switch to "edit html", highlight the text about your photo, cut, and paste it where you want it. Go back to compose and it should be where you want it.
I had trouble a week or so ago with the little icon for posting too. I tried changing the photo and it still uses the old one on most of the blogs I follow but updated to the new photo on others. ???? Go figure. LOL

This is GORGOUES!! Love the vintage images!! It's perfect! I wish to help but I'm no computer savvy. I thought the picture will automatically load when you sign in. It only show the generic silhouette if I only enter my name and my blog's URL.

Irena said...

Your card is amazing beautiful. The image is so cute and lovely. Every detail is great.
I wish you very nice day!

Liszha said...

Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh............this is the sweetest card! I love how you make your bow. Gotta try that sometime.

This is wonderful! I love the vintage feel and the blue just makes it pop! Great job on Challenge #2 and thank for playing at PCS! Good luck!

Ros said...

Absolutely gorgeous card... Hope your Mum is doing ok.

As for your blog prob. Not sure if you use Apple or Microsoft... I use Apple and it took me a while to figure out that after I type my text, I then have to press the return(or enter) key and then add the picture. Then press return again to add my text and so on... Not sure if this helps

Lea L. said...

This is fabulous, Heather! I just love that vintage image you used!! Thanks for playing at the Curtain Call this week!!

♥♥♥Lea

PS- Not sure how to help you with blogger. It can be such a pain sometimes!!

Karen B. said...

Great card for the holiday! Yikes, sorry to hear about your blogger issues. I've had some in the past. I think if you want to go back to the old way, you go into settings, then scroll down to Global Setting and click on the Old Editor.

What a pretty card. Ahhg...I'm having the same problem with my photos. It takes me twice as long to complete my post because I have to keep dragging photos to the bottom. I don't want to switch back because I like the larger photos with the new blogger. Let me know when you figure it out. Maybe it's just a glitch they'll work out. Praying for your mom, Patty

Tracy said...

I've already commented once on this card but it won't hurt to do it again since I LOVE it. :) Just wanted to thank you for playing with us at Papercraft Star!

Hi Heather!
I loved your last card, the Celebrate Today! it's adorable....!

as far as your dilema....
I use windows live writer and then it uploads to my blog...is that what you do?
i don't have any problems with it....

if you don't have it, download it and start using it....it's much better....and if you do have it but are still having these issues..then I don't know what to tell ya!

hope that helps!
have a great first day of July!

ciao bella

Cute vintage image, just curious if you found it at the Image Fairy??? I used to follow it, then I gave up because I wasn't using anything. Anyway, it's a super cute card and a great use of the Curtain Call colors!

Sorry, I'm not help with the computer issues!
