I won this beautiful stamp set, The First Noel, from Flourishes toward the end of last year but because I live in Mexico, I was unable to get my hands on it until after Christmas. Since I'm getting an early start on Christmas cards for 2012, I had the chance to get it inky today!
There are two special challenges where I will be entering this card. The first is at Flourishes, and this gives me(and you too, if you enter) a chance to win their entire February release -- how fantastic is that? The challenge is to use black and white and a pop of one other color. The deadline to enter this challenge is Feb. 10, 5 pm EST -- plenty of time for you all to join the fun!
My next challenge is Merry Monday Sketch #6. This is a site that I have found recently and have really been enjoying Lesley's terrific sketches. Follow the link and check it out if you haven't had a chance to do that yet.
I was having trouble with my computer earlier, it even had me growling out loud! Picasa wasn't letting me crop my photos normally; finally got it to work but when I went to save my file, I wasn't able to rename it. So, going with the old file name I was able to load the photo to Blogger but then was not able to type in a title. Actually, was not able to type anything at all. I just happened to think to pull out my wireless keybord and this is working (for now). Guess my laptop keyboard isn't communicating properly. Man, I really don't want to have to take my laptop to the shop, but it may be my only option if things don't get better. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
