Yes it seems everything is crashing at once. First my computer crashed, but we managed on our own somehow to get it back, but lost everything I had in the computer. Now have to figure out how to get the program back on to add pics, and I was just beginning to learn how to use it. LOL Oh yeah, it also wiped out the program for my brand new printer I just got for Christmas from my grandson and I cannot find the disc to reload. Dare I e-mail him and ask if he remembers that "really safe place I stored it". Not. Well onward and upward I will eventually get it all back together again. I am going to work on my ABC Challenge. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

I have never joined any challenges before, but have decided to try and do the ABC Christmas Challenge of doing a card every two weeks throughout the year. I missed the first one for the letter A, but have done the January challenge for letter B - bells. I did not have any rubber with bells, but took a bell and stitched it to his snow cap, hope that works.

Supplies: Red CS - Michaels, White CS - WalMart, stamp - Penny Black 2004, snow/fur on cap and background - silver glitter glue.


Crissy's blog addy:


Crissy of Arts and Hearts has created a carousal horse, Wings of Hope, to help with the relief efforts in Haiti. So very thoughtful and caring of her to step up to help these unfortunate people. I am always touched by the Rubber Stampers as they are always right there to help a worthy cause. It makes me proud to be among them. So click on the icon on my sidebar to order one of the digi stamps she is offering to help the effort. Thank you.

I though the computer had eaten Jenny's birthday card as I have had problems for over two days with the computer, but I finally found the pic. and I hope she receives before seeing this.

Little Jennys Creations -Candy

Jenny is celebrating her 1 yr. blogaversary by offering CANDY. She does awesome creations and you should check out her creations and sign up for her generous candy.

Birthday Card

What a dunderhead am I. When I rechecked the name of my birthday send I was somewhat taken aback when I realized it was also my January OCS, so she is getting two cards, I did another easel card, but smaller.

January OCS

Well I finally got one card loaded, don't ask me how as I have no idea what I may have done differently. This is for my OCS for January and I am going to hold the post for a couple more days so she has time to receive the card. This was my first try at an easel card. AND to try and find the second card.


Are any of you having big problems with blogger and/or Google? I have been trying to get some pics on here for two days and they will not post. Haven't figured out if it is me or the computer or server. Hope I can get this figured out soon as it is so frustrating!! Especially when I finally have something to post. LOL

Second post today. I have added "followers" back on my blog. I took it off because it doesn't always work well with Vista. So I will see if the problems have been fixed. Thanks for looking.

Camera Out Again

Gee what happened to the days when a camera lasted a lifetime? I have a very good camera, but it never holds a charge on the batteries. I even take them out when not using camera. This was not a cheapie and I really don't want to have to replace it. I have a 35mm that is wonderful, but you can't use it on the computer, oh woo is me. Anyway, I did manage to get one picture taken before it went out again, but need to get the card on its way and not post before it is received. So give me a day or two and up it will go. Weather is finally getting back to normal here in Florida, YEA!! Before long we will be complaining about how hot it is, LOL. Take care and all have a great day.

Belles'nWhistle Stamps

I just want anyone who has not found Summer and her Belles 'n Whistles Stamps, you really need to check out her inventory and order from this lovely young woman. Summer worked with me to get the stamps I so badly wanted and waited for me to get my money together (I have been without employment since Dec. 1). I finally got myself together and notified Summer and she mailed my stamps right out and I received them today. I am so excited to start using them. So a big THANKS to Summer who has been so gracious. Please check her out!

i have the snowflake widget on my blog right now? Because of the cold here in Florida, longest period of cold I can remember. They say it will rain tonight and could cause snow (of course, it melts almost as soon as it hits the ground), but if I want to remember and be in the snow again I will go visit it, do not want it coming to visit me, LOL. I just may have a card or two to post in a day or so. I am so slow at doing so. But I just have to be in the mood or I mess everything up. I so envy you who have the patience to do cards and blogging everyday. I really do enjoy coming to visit you all, whether I leave a comment or not I am there with you. Keep warm everyone, this to shall end.
