Sentimental Sundays - Snow Wonderful

The Sentimental Sundays challenge for this week is "anything goes". I decided to keep plugging away at making Christmas cards and used this snowman image from Prairie Fairy Designs.

I feel like my mojo has left me again. I was all set to send the day (Saturday) crafting and expected to finish several projects but I only finished 2 cards. I battled with my printer - for some reason today it has decided it likes to eat my paper and then get jammed up. I battle with my PC - I am unable to search my files to find what I want unless I remember the file name. After much research and lots of phone calls to people more tech savy then me, I found out it is a "known issue" with Windows 7 but unfortunately none of the available patches have helped me. I feel like I spent the day battling tech problems and it sucked my creativity dry. I hope to get these issues taken care of and feel more creative soon.

I hope your mojo hasn't left you. As I mentioned earlier, the Sentimental Sundays challenge is "anything goes". As long at you have a new project with a sentiment you can participate in the challenge. (All the details are on the challenge blog.) I hope that you will join us for your chance to win some fabulous digital sentiment sets from Raindrop Echo Designs.

Thank you for stopping by!

Gorgeous card Cheryl, I love these colours together and the little snowman is so sweet! I hate it when we have crafting time available and either things don't go right or we have no inspiration...I think your mojo is a little closer than you realise though...this card is beautiful! :) Donna x
Your card is beautiful and helps with our 100+ temps for that we continue to have. Don't forget to check out Lucky Stamper for your surprise, it may help with the mojo.

Despite your problems, this card turned out way too cute! Great colors, great details. Hope you are able to fix the Windows problem sooner than later.

Arg--don't you hate computer issues? I've been having virus issues myself--no fun!

Your card, however, seems full of mojo! I love your fun take on Christmas colors. And your image is soooooo cute! I love the paper pieced hat with pompom and the added sparkle. Fabulous card!

The card is snow cute! and the colors are cool!
I must say that I do spend a lot of time making sure that my files are where I can find them in W7. And I 'group' everything that I can to reduce the actual number of files to make searching easier. But then I am sure that I don't have near as many to 'file' as you do!!!!
Hello, Brandy J. here from Paper Crafts. I just wanted to thank you SO MUCH for the comment you left on the PC blog. My house is a mess and the laundry is in a heap on the floor, but my little boy has a full belly and just went to bed. I'll continue taking your advice because it is really working out so far!

Super cute card, by the way!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
