Bookworms for my bookworm!!

 Hi Everyone,
I hope you have had a lovely weekend. The weather has been kind to us here and its been sunny but not too hot. Tom helped me to get some gardening done this afternoon as over the next few days there are storms forecast. 
This card is to say Congrats to Tom for passing his exams.  He is going to appeal one of them as they downgraded him from the prelim result. It seems to have been very difficult this year with all final exams cancelled. 
Card Recipe
A6 Scalloped Card.
Clearly Besotted Stamp - All Booked Up
Coloured with Promarkers. 
Papers - Stampin Up
Black Embossing Powder.
Faux Stitching - Black Pen
Eyes - Glossy Accents.

I made their wee apples look like Pink Lady ones.  They are really tasty and its the only apples Tom will eat.

I loved new blogger but the last couple of posts Ive done there seems to be issues with it. The pictures wont go where I want and the line spacing seems to be off. Is anyone else having this issue or is is just me? I was thinking it might be my brain being wonky as Im having a bit of a fibro flare.

Take Care Everyone,

Stay Safe, Love and Sparkles,

Hazel x

No! It's not your brain, but the new design of Blogger. I hope it will be allright at aug 24...Everyone has the same problem with the pictures and te spce between de lines...
The bookmwurm is zo nice! With the glossy eyes! I love it. Good luck for Tom!
Here it is too hot, I don't like it!

Fabulous card, love the image and layout! It has been a difficult time for the youngsters-such an anti climax after all the hard work and effort for their final exams to be cancelled, hope Tom's appeal goes through.
Thanks for playing along at Sweet Stampin' this week.

Firstly, congratulations to Tom, and wishing him well with his appeal. This is so darn cute! I love the bulgy look to their eyes, with the Glossy Accents, and there's so much colour and joy to the card! Love the doodled edges to the message panel.

I've been having the same issues with the new Blogger (and hating it), but I read that the spacing can be handled by clicking shift and enter together for the proper line spacing. I haven't figured out the ridiculous image placement problem yet.

This is super cute. I love the little bookworms. They would make great book markers too. [Bunny]

A great card for Tom and well done to him. He certainly should appeal any results he's not happy with, one of our daughters is a senior tutor and very unhappy with how some gradings have come through and is urging pupils to question any they are not happy with.

Fabulous card, Hazel and I hope Tom gets the results that he's hoping for with his appeal - Josh gets his results on the 20th, so we're hoping they're what he was expecting!
I love these cute little bookworms, made even more cuter with their Glossy Accent glasses! Fab paper choices and a great interpretation fo the sketch!
Thanks for playing along with us at Passion for Promarkers this week! Lisa x

A lovely bright and beautiful creation, great fun images and a gret design. I have had issues, especially with the photo's going large and in the wrong place. Thank you for joining our 'Masculine' challenge at Allsorts.

I adore those bug eyes you have created. Such fun. I don't know what issues others have had with their reading lists in the new blogger, but every time I go to comment on someones post I get sent to a redirect page with quite often a http blog address to go to which I will not go any where near as http is not encrypted. Https is so in frustration i have reverted back to the old blogger and commenting from the reading list with no problem. Hugs Mrs A.
