I may have an answer....

For those of you who are having trouble with blog commenting, I may have a temporary solution.

My husband looked into the problem on blogger and they suggested to switch the way we format our comments.
Go into your settings and cick on comments...
switch to "full page" or "pop up window".

I hope this helps!

Sending Smiles

Hello there!
I'm finally getting around to playing with The Paper Players. I'm not really having any luck with blogger these days! Every time I click on the comments section the screen turns white! Are you expiriencing the same thing? There are many blogs I cannot comment on and feel very badly. I wonder if the same is happening to me. Do you know what is wrong?

Well any way, I am combining two challenges...

All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. Decorative die and tag die are from Spellbinders. Floral watering can stamp is from Heartfelt Creations. Sentiment stamp and black ink are from Hero Arts.
