Happy Hump day all!!! It is hard to believe it is Wednesday already and half the week is gone. Wow! And to think it is December already as well. Yikes!! I am not near ready for Christmas!!!! You would think that we card makers would be ahead on not me.....!

I am so excited to have a working computer!! My dear husband allowed me to buy a new one since there were so many issues with my old one. Guess you all know what I got for Christmas now. Yes...this is it!!! I am excited though!! I was able to post my creations over the last few weeks but now I can check out yours as well!! I have so missed visiting you all. Never realized how addicted I was to the computer and how much time I actually spend on here!!! Sorry for getting off track here.....just wanted to let you all know that I did not forget you!! Thanks for all your sweet comments. Thankfully my girls are over the flu and feeling much better as well!!
