Fab card hun, love the image and the soft colours, great layout too. I would change to Chrome, IE and Blogger do not seem to get along and since being on Chrome for 2 years I have not had a single problem. Hope you get it resolved. Hugs, Claire x

Ella's Design said...

Gorgeous card, Nic! Love the soft pastel shades and that sweet bear, coloured brilliantly!
I use Firefox for internet browsing, without trouble on my PC and Chrome on my tab, which I have no issues with either - the advantage of Chrome is that it is a Google product like Blogger, so guess it should have better compatability??! Lisa x

This is adorable Nic I love it so cute! I'm glad you are getting used to your new lappy lucky thing! I have always had probs with IE and blogger but have none of those since using Google chrome it's much more compatible with blogger like some others have said hugs rebekah xx

Its very sweet Nic, you could enter it into Crafty Ribbons as well as its buttons this week. Have been using my son's lappy while recuperating and cannot get used to the sensitivity of it. Google chrome seems to work best with Blogger.
