Do any Bloggers out there have this problem??

My blog is not updating anywhere...from Google Reader to Blog Rolls.  I have not touched any settings, and I'm thinking that it started when Blogger changed their look.  Any help would be greatly appreciated:)

Thomas Kincade Cling Stamps at Cornish Heritage Farms

Hello and welcome here
If you are a Thomas Kinkade stamp fan - today is your day! CHF is proud to announce that they are once again, offering Thomas Kinkade stamps! They have 9 beautiful images up NOW on their store website with more to come in the next few months.
During the last few months, they have had an overwhelming number of requests to release Thomas Kinkade in cling - and they listened! The new Thomas Kinkade stamps are the same super high quality, deeply etched red rubber stamps that you have become accustomed to, with one slight difference - they are now being offered on CLING mounting! 
Their research has found that most people prefer cling mounting to wood mounting 5 to 1! Not only does cling mounting give you more space to store your awesome Thomas Kinkade stamps, they also cost less so you can literally afford MORE Thomas Kinkade stamps! Please keep in mind, the rubber is the same - just less to store!
We hope you enjoy their first TK offering and they look forward to bringing you more Thomas Kinkade in the months to come!

It's difficult to see, but I added Gold Gel Pen along the lines on the tea cup, and around the top lip, and I added Silver Gel Pen to the spoon can see it shining a bit in the photo above.  I added Gold Ice Stickles to my flowers for a bit of sparkle.

Crimson Cloud - 3 packs of die cuts

Bugaboo Stamps - 7 digi images of your choice

 I left the image a little darker so that you could see the shine and sparkle.  I used aluminum duct tape and a star punch for the corner stars (found at the local hardware store, I peeled the backing off and stuck it to cardstock before punching), and stickles for the stars along the edge of the image. I finished it off with an arrow paper clip that I found at Office Depot.
