So good to be back

Hello, hello!

Gosh, I can't even tell you how glad I am to have a working computer again. It felt so weird not posting here or getting a chance to cruise around and see what you all have been up to these past few days. Thank goodness I have a couple days off to get caught up on everything! :)
Thanks for bearing with me through this little hiccup and for all the advice... I'm already making sure to back up my digis on an external hard drive now, live and learn right?

So, it's the big Black Friday... anyone out there participating in the crazy early hours of shopping? Not me. I don't do well in crowds and can't stand the stress of it all. Thank goodness for internet shopping! Speaking of which, don't forget that All That Scraps is having a one day only, 25% off everything in the store sale today, which includes the new December stamps release!

Which also reminds me... if you would like a chance to win Mistletoe Snowhill and the rest of my candy, you still have until Saturday night to post here and get in on the fun! :)

Alrighty then, on to today's card and can you believe it's another one without any pattern paper? Craziness I know but I had a lot of fun coloring. I used the CC Designs Sugarplums Snowy Scene stamp set to create the background and then I altered Sugarplums Cow Emma just a bit so that instead of the cow costume she now now wears a cozy snowsuit to hang lights in. All in all this card was a nice change up from my usual cards and you just gotta throw a few of those into the mix every once in a while to keep things fresh, don'tcha think? ;)
