Santa Claus.....plus problem update!

Afternoon Blogging Buddies.

Firstly an update on my blogger problems and also my poorly laptop. 

The problem with my reading list making a show is still intermittent, but better than it was when I was having a moan about it.

 It doesn't seem to make any difference as to which browser I'm on, it still does a disappearing act no matter which one I use, refreshing the page several times occasionally works, swearing at it or praying probably has as much effect!! (trust me, I've tried it all!)

So it would seem by your comments that I am not alone, quite a few of you are having the same problems, so at least it's not an exclusive club,  to be absolutely honest I was some what relieved to find that I had company, I was beginning to think that there was something wrong from my end.

I do wish Mr Blogger would get it sorted out for us as it's so damned annoying!

As for my laptop, completely restored to health, thank goodness.

I took it to my son's at the weekend and he sorted it out for me, (he's an absolute star, bless him) I was thinking it would have to go into hospital, and that would mean some expense, or worse still, it would die on the operating table and I'd have to adopt another one, oh the relief!!

So onto crafting....

I too could wish Blogger further Jacee, might already have said but my dashboard went completely for almost three days, the just arrived back and fingers crossed OK today.

Hope you computer keeps OK, the last thing you want is a new one - been there and all I could get was Windows 8, nightmare. It still sits on my desk abandoned because I hate the new system and am back on my old desktop which is limping along so slowly it might be quicker to deliver letters by hand.

One of our son's is a cyber whiz at the Stock Exchange and has promised when he has a weekend free he will uninstall Windows 8 and install Vista, talk about a step back but at least that's reliable. *W8 is like a glorified tablet but with a huge touch screen, horrid.

Love, love your bright and happy card.

Jacee that is a fab Christmas card and gorgeous Santa image. Love the way you've glittered it up. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Fab 'n' Funky this week for our Christmas challenge.

Gorgeous Jolly card Jacee, love the colours and design. Marlene

jimlynn said...

LOL! Too funny - and yes, Blogger seems to have a mind of it's own for sure! I usually have to refresh mine a couple of times when I get on to see the Reader list. If I try it 3 times and it still doesn't work, just walk away (say a few of those choice words) and then come back and try again.

Jacee, your card is GORGEOUS!!! Wow! Santa is just stunning in this. Love all the sparkle you've added too. He's a handsome guy for sure!

Super card Jacee, lovely Santa, and colours.

Hi this is a fabulous card love the Santa he is awesome.
I had a bad-bad day Sunday with Google chrome and windows 8 has got a little better but still not 100% but now I know it is not just me LOL Take care Ginny x

Michelle J M said...

What a gorgeous Father Christmas, that look on his face is priceless! I too am having problems with blogger and most days do not have a reading list. Glad you laptop is feeling better! Michelle x

MaryH said...

This is one cute Santa! Absolutely love his expression and the pretty blues & reds that you've dressed him up in. Like that diamond pattern in the paper - not sure if it's the dp or perhaps embossing folder. It's very lovely, whichever it is. Your inside card is always decorated so pretty too. Glad your laptop made a good recovery, and Blogger is taking forever for me today. Don't know if comments are publishing - other aggravations. Guess we can't fuss too much, as long as Blogger stays free! TFS

Carol S. said...

Gorgeous Santa and love his expression! Fab card. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Ella's Design said...

Fab card, Jacee! Love your jolly Santa image and your card is beautifully decorated inside and out!
Glad to hear the laptop has received treatment and will survive another day - I dread if anything ever happens to my PC and certainly would NOT be joining the Windows 8 crowd! Blogger is behaving for me...at the moment...but as Mary said, we can't complain too much as long as it's free! Hugs, Lisa x

Sandra H said...

KT Fit Kitty said...

Hi there, Jacee! This is a cute Santa card! I love Christmas cards! I've have the problem with the disappearing blog list too - on and off for months. It's very annoying! Especially when you have some time and just want to six, relax and read your blogs! I have left comments on the Blogger Help page several times but they never respond. I wish they would fix it! Wishing you a joyful day!

Jenny L said...

Hi Jacee,
super Chrissy card.
I love the fab Father Christmas and your super designing yest again.
Yes your right blogger is being a pain in the rear end.
Sometimes my blog has a completely different format, than the one that is supposed to be, and it takes at least 3 attempts of refresh to get it back to normal.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Rainey's Craft Room said...

A super card Jacee, love the Santa image.
I've had a few problems too with blogger recently, firstly I was unable to save and post on my blog, then commenting was a no go with only a blank comment box showing, hence why I'm a bit behind with comments. It is very frustrating I agree.

A beautifully designed card, with a Santa with a really nice face.
I do like how you show us the inside of your cards too, they're equally well executed as the fronts...

You are so not alone. My list is as elusive as Nessie. In fact I'm more likely to spot Nessie than I am my reading list! Hugs Mrs A.
