Dragonfly card

Afternoon everyone, we have snow again.....must
be Spring then I guess lol !!! Stay safe all of you.
 It's a recipe over at 'Less is More' this week
 and the theme is.......
Well as a jewellery maker (see earlier posts to view some)
 it should pose no problem I thought......WRONG! The best
 part of 2 hrs and  my first effort now firmly posted in the
 'round' file. I almost lost the will to live.....enough moaning
 sorry!!  Here is what I came up with, some distress
 inking again and a tiny wire beaded dragonfly....don't peer to
closely at that please :) A big welcome to my latest followers
and thankyou for choosing  me to follow.
ps. have you all decided what you are going to do when
google reader closes on the 1st July?? not sure if friend
connect will go too, am assuming it will?? I believe the blogs we
 follow in blogger will still be seen by us on our dashboard  though
 but not typepad or wordpress ( thanks for the info Viv). I am
 considering Bloglovin or Feedly atm. Most seem to be choosing
 Bloglovin I see but I believe there is no option to use an ipad 
with that. I hope to get one soon so that would be a pain.......
decisions, decisions!! Arggghhhh.

I have typepad and wordpress (and any other type of blog) on my dashboard in my reading list. I add them manually when I find any I want to follow and they feed through to Reader. Bloglovin also picked them up when I imported the blogs I follow into it.

Another fabbie card Viv... love the DI colours you're using!

Re the google thingie.... I'm holding fire at the mo... my techie daughter tells me that it won't affect us bloggers, so I'm hoping so!! Not sure about the Ipad though... mine tends to want to use reader... don't know what it'll do when it can't!
