My Birthday Card

I just could not resist posting this card.  We try so hard when making cards - colours, detail, image,backing papers etc.  Well my birthday was last week and my brother who works with metal made me a stainless steel card.  I thought it was brilliant.

Tracking Cookies

Hi Everybody.  I decided to post this just in case any of you were interested.  I have found that trawling through Blogland and visiting some shopping sites that I am picking up a load of tracking cookies.  Now I know that these are not a virus and are harmless but I do not like the thought of companies tracking my surfing and shopping.  I (sometime ago) downloaded an Anti Spyware programme which I run daily and it is amazing the number of tracking cookies that it weeds out.  On a normal day it could be 18 and somedays as many as 56.  I do of course use an anti virus programme but this is completely different.  It is called   SuperAnti Spyware and it is the free edition.  I downloaded it from which is a very trustworthy site which I have used for years.  It might be worthwhile for you to download it and see what you think.  It downloads in a few minutes and after all if you don't like it you can always uninstall it.  I will be interested to hear what you think.   Marie-Louise

My new stamp

Hi everybody.  First of all I want to extend a very warm welcome to Sharon, Ger, Lisa S and Lisa M , Maria and Crafty Chris and thank you for adding your names to my blog.  After receiving the wonderful package from Karen I just had to try out the stamps.  I am not artistic by nature and my colouring clearly shows this - so I am  secretly pleased that my photo is slightly fuzzy.  After finishing the card I felt it needed something else but I refrained from adding any more extras - what do you think?  Thank you for dropping by.  All your comments are greatly appreciated.  Marie-Louise
