Birth of a King

The last few days have been so stressful. Last Thursday my computer started acting up and I had viruses and spyware - despite my care about not opening things. So this weekend, my wonderful husband spent 6 hours reformatting my computer and reloading programs. Talk about a major pain. There are still a few things to do but at least I can work with it now. I really do not understand why people need to be so malicious just to prove how smart they think they are. They could put all those smarts to some good use and we would love them and not hate them.

Anyway, I managed to quickly get a card done this morning for the challenge at Sassy Cheryl's but I apologize for the photo. It is so dreary here today and I really didn't have time to move lights. The theme is WINTER so I dug out this adorable snow family image and made a Christmas card. Now I better concentrate on getting the cards in the mail so no more crafting for a couple of days.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges.

Whoopsi Daisy - Snowflakes
Gingerloft - Christmas and Winter
Quirk Crafts - Snow
2 Sisters - Punches and/or Dies
Sassy Cheryl's - Winter
