Second Go and an apology

Apology first - I am having problems leaving comments on a lot of blogs.I know this is not just me as others have said they're having problems too.
The blogs that have 'embedded comments' enabled  will not open the comment box - instead it just goes to a blank white screen. If you have the 'pop up' comments box then there isn't a problem. If you can change, please would you? Then I can leave a comment to show you that I've visited and admired your creations!
In the meantime I would like to say sorry to the blogs that I follow or visit regularly if you haven't received a comment - I am trying but the white screen keeps appearing! I will still be dropping by and hope to be able to leave you a comment soon.

OK - that done with, here's an offering from me for this morning (there may be more later as it's cold here and tum still growling so am not planning on doing very much in the shape of 'real work'!!!!)
This is my second entry into the Less Is More 'Birds- One Layer' challenge for this week.

I used my favourite linen textured card.
The stamp is coloured with watercolour pastels - it's been a while since I did any painting with watercolours and I enjoyed the relaxation that I get from a paintbrush and palette!

The CAS thing sometimes leaves me thinking there should be 'more' not less on some of my efforts and this is no different. But CAS it has to be, so I opted to put on three tiny black pearls at the bottom and knotted a length of ribbon across the top

I haven't added a sentiment yet. I may remove the ribbon and stamp a sentiment when I come to use it!

Thanks for visiting - I might be back again a bit later!
Have a lovely day whatever you're doing. x

It seems to be confined to Internet Explorer users and those with embedded comments. I've changed my embedded comments now to pop up but I'm still struggling with some blogs which just won't open up at all or won't open comments - you are definitely NOT ALONE!!!

Happy Sunday
