Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope everyone is well and enjoying the week!!  I haven't been commenting much since my computer has been on the fritz it seems!!  Grrr!!  Mozilla keeps closing on me or my computer freezes.  My virus scan says no viruses but I don't know.....

Anywho...better share this YNS creation with you quick....before I shut down again.  Today I am sharing this sweet little Party Fhiona from Your Next Stamp.  I created a scene for her with fall leaves and an acorn from the Fall Frame in the Autumn Greetings set at YNS.  I drew in the grass and sponged the sky background. I colored her with copics.  The leaves are felt stickers. Since YNS is sponsoring Wee Memories this week, I joined the challenge which was scallops, orange and string (choose 2- I chose orange and scallopes).  I used the SFYTT sketch challenge hosted by Jen.

Card Recipe:

paper: Heidi Grace (I have had this paper in my stash for years!!!), crushed curry dp, white dp

Nice job, Chris. :-) I have been having alot of trouble too with my computer, it freezing up on me or windows internet explorer not being able to display the page; the screen going cloudy etc etc. I did get some relief just deleting the cookies and browsing history. Blogging produces alot of debri it seems. It doesn't neccesarily mean viruses but just alot of debri. Give it a go and see if it helps a bit. If it doesn't, then that's when i blame it on my internet provider. :-)
