Help?!

Hiya,

I was just wondering has anybody else noticed green links appearing in comments, the links are usually for ads or sometimes it links back to a blog? Ive posted about 3 comments and the links have automaticaly been put in so i have had to delete the comment and try again. It is really weird and I am wondering if I have some kind of virus or if its something to do with blogger? I have noticed the links in lots of peoples comments!

If anyone had any input or help I would be soooo greatful :)

Have a fabby day,
Fiona x

****Update**** I think I have solved it, it seems that its a feature called "text enhance" that is perfectly legit and came along with my recent Firefox update, so luckily at least it seems I am the only one seeing theses links. I was worried that I was unwillingly putting links on peoples blogs as I left them comments *phew* fingers crossed its all fixed now as I was able to opt out of it.

Crafty Cardmakers #51 DT Card - Summer Holidays Memories

Mandy has chosen the theme for todays challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and she would like to see your SUMMER HOLIDAY MEMORIES so that could be a card, layout, ATC or other creation, perhaps of beach scenes, partying whatever you got up to over summer.

As I was flipping through my stamps I came across this Sugar Nellie stamp called Country Garden. My birthday is smack bang in the middle of summer and this year my daughter went out and picked me a lovely bunch of flowers for my pressie. When I saw this stamp it just reminded me of this and my summer memories :) The paper I have used is from the Bird Song stack from First Edition, i've used my MS garden trellis punch, coloured the image with ProMarkers and the ribbon ,charm and flowers are all from my stash.
