I had to stop with that sentence and look up "snuck" versus "sneaked" because Mr. Blogger underlined snuck as if it were wrong. (How dare he!) Apparently it's okay to use either word, but snuck is considered an old-fashioned use of the word and sneaked is more modern. I use both, being the fence-sitter that I am. I find it amusing that I would normally use the words thusly: "He snuck out of the house to see his girlfriend," whereas, "She sneaked back into the house after seeing her boyfriend."
Words, you gotta love 'em! A friend and I had a similar convo last week about "sped" versus "speeded." But I see that my time is up for today's etymology class. Please close your books and adjourn to the art room where you'll find today's Onefer:
Since I love puzzles, I had a blast piecing the colored bits into the white die cut border. Thankfully Hammy helped so it took half the time. The hugs and kisses die is from Memory Box and the cupcake and sediment stamps are from Penny Black's Sweet Wishes stamp set. I cut strips of matching snippets to add to the bottom and border of the card while Hammy winked the cupcake and glossified the cherry on top.
And then, rather than toss the die cut snippets in the BOB (box of bits), I made the rest of the cards I needed to mail:
- Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge: Anything goes w/ pp.
- Pixie's Snippets Playground: Anything goes w/ snippets.
- Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Add some red.
I made the above card because Shopping Our Stash is having an "Ode to Jessi" tribute. Jessi passed away in December at the age of 42. She was a talented friend and a member of the Design Team for SOS. Jessi and I met online very soon after I started blogging and we soon realized we shared the same wicked sense of humor! To honor Jessi, SOS is asking us to CASE one of Jessi's cards from her blog. I had trouble accessing her blog this week, so I pulled up my folder of cards I've received from friends. This is the card I am CASEing, which Jessi sent to me for Christmas 2016:
Blogger Issues ~ Again
Many of us who receive notification of our friends' blog posts via our mail inboxes are once again having problems receiving them. Many more of us are finding that we have been reverted back to being "no-reply bloggers" after fixing our settings to change that. It's so frustrating!
You have prolly noticed that Blogger is doing away with Google+. I'm not sure if that's why things are getting discombobulated, but the only thing I can suggest you do is what I did: go back into your settings and remove your email address from the appropriate places, click save settings, and exit. Then go back to your dashboard again, re-enter your email address in the appropriate places, and click save settings again.
This fix hasn't worked for all who have tried it, but it has worked for many others, so you have nothing to lose by trying it. Please don't ask me why it works for some and not others. I'm guessing it depends on what's the third from the last letter of the middle name of your grandfather's first cousin on his second cousin's side.
I'm not setting out the full instructions here, but if you need help with where the appropriate place is for post notifications via email, let me know via my email which is listed on my profile page. Or you can use the Contact Me form in the salad bar on the right. If you need help with where the appropriate place is for correcting your no-reply blogger setting, you can click on the red Are You a No-Reply Blogger? label in the salad bar on the right.
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by so I can be sure and return the flavor!
