Hi there! If you're a subscriber to my blog or visit regularly, your probably wondering if I've dropped off the face of the earth. I apologize for not posting as to why I've been absent and in all honesty it was a combination of several different reasons. I've been posting here on my blog for more than seven years now (wow I can hardly believe that) and felt burnt out, I had a lack of mojo in creating cards and to go along with that, my computer took a nose dive and wasn't working. Creating a blog post with my old computer was beyond frustrating, when I found myself crying because I couldn't get a card posted on time, I asked myself whether this was what I wanted in my life and I took a step back.
But....my dear husband surprised me with a new computer for my birthday and although its faster and oh so wonderful and I'm extremely grateful, it has Windows 8 which I know nothing about. Now I don't know about you but I'm far from computer savvy so it's taking me a while to find my way around. I'm hoping that once I get the hang of my new computer it will be easier for me to share what I've created and I'll get back to blogging regularly again.
With all that being said, I'm here today to share a card that I created for today's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #197.
I used the fun Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes stamp set along with some Doodlebug Designs Christmas paper to create one of my first Christmas cards of the season. I took a little liberty with the flag/banner from the sketch and flipped it inward so that I could use it for my sentiment, I added some buttons, twine and my Copic colored snowdude who was cut out and popped up.
Thank you for stopping by!
