A Whinge & Wednesday Stamper (Insects)

This is my Wednesday Stamper contribution this week - the centre of the ATC is made from frosted shrink plastic which has been stamped with a large Stamps Happen image (Bugs Galore). I had coloured it on the back but I glued it on with Dimensional Magic and of course most of the colour dissolved! Wasn't thinking, that's for sure. I love that protractor image too - always makes me think of the cycle of life.

PS And now for The Whinge!! I know everyone that adds word verification to their blog comments does it to avoid spam but it really puts me off commenting as I have SO much trouble reading those little strings of letters!! They all bump into each other and a "l" followed closely by a fat round "o" really looks to me like a "b". Sometimes it takes me three goes to get it right! Am I the only one having this much trouble??? And I am the only one that gets really really long strings of letters??? So time consuming when all I want to do is read more blogs...

Your ATC reminds me of those old navigational maps with the compass done in pen & ink. I like it.

I know what you mean about the letter verification thing. It is annoying.

I'm with you, I hate those letter verifications too. They drive me crazy! Even when I think it's right I get it wrong!

There seems to be a worse problem than ever with the verification thingy at the moment. My hubby has sight problems and he's finding it nearly impossible to leave comments. Very annoying.

Lovely ATC Debbi, my favorite part is the ladybirds and the other bugs, the colours are great too.
I know what you mean about the word verification. I have the same problem. I think I took it off mine and just left the comment check on, as I was having a lot of silly comments, so ineede something.

No, you are NOT the only one that dislikes those fuzzy, funny letter thingies. :P

Very pretty piece of paper art, too.

I switched letter verification on yesterday after receiving yet another spam comment. Then I read this, and thought a bit about it, and have changed to comment moderation.

I just can't let those spammers get away with it!
