Inspired by Sandie {and Blogger commenting}


Happy Tuesday friends. When I saw the current Inkspirational Challenge, I knew that I had to play along.  My cousin, Sandie, is the MUSE for the current challenge and I absolutely adore her CAS style.   I immediately knew what card I wanted to case. Please see her card below.  I love the small scale of this card, but went a bit bigger with my images.   Sandie also loves the PTI linen impression plate.  I'm not sure that you can see it on this card (poor photography on my part), but I added that as well.   Be sure to pop on over to Sandie's blog. I'm sure you'll be inspired to play along.

I also wanted to chat about Blogger commenting.  Joyce was nice enough to let me know that my comments weren't displaying with my email address.  I had no idea.  A couple of months ago I unintentionally switched to Google+.  I think that is what turned my email address to the "no reply" commenting.  Thanks to Joyce's note, I researched this a bit further and switched my blog back to a regular Blogger profile.  For information on how to turn your email on for a regular Blogger email, click here;  For info on how to revert back to a regular Blogger profile, click here.  I'm so thankful Joyce pointed this out to me as I always feel bad when there is no email to respond to on a blog comment where someone has asked a question.

  6. Awesome cards. Thanks for the tip of switching back to blogger profile. I accidently switched to google+ as well. It has been weird.

  8. Fabulous cards by both you and Sandie! I love your very funky Christmas card. Goodgle+ is a bit frustrating if you want to visit a blog of one of your commentors. Glad you sorted it out and glad that Joyce helped you out. She is good that way! :)

  11. Oh, Lynn, you did a fantastic job with your tribute to Sandie, both with your words and your card! I didn't know she was your cousin!

    Thanks, too, for the info and links regarding the "no-reply" situation. I have it on my side bar, but you know how we ignore those, ha! If you don't mind I'm going to repost this information on my blog as well. I know some people don't want their emails out there, but lots of people just don't know they are "no-reply."

    Hugs, Darnell

  13. Thank you for the tips on the blogger profile. I don't think I was a no-comment one, but there were things I didn't like about one of my accounts being a google+ profile instead of blogger. And you helped me fix it!!

  17. Fantastic card--I almost pulled a Darnell and wrote Funtastic--perfect for a teenager who has achieved something (around here, getting out of bed on time would warrant a congratulations card). How fun is it that you have a cousin who also stamps. Love that. And, glad you have worked your Google and blogger issues out. It is fun to think that I actually knew something about a computer.

  18. Such great energy on your congrats card! Again, it really fits your message. You're good at keeping that in mind : ) I always feel bad when I can't reply to someone too, especially if they don't have a web site that I can respond in a comment.
