Hi all!! I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful week!!  Is anyone having problems posting on blogger.  Boy am I struggling with posting and editing or even commenting!!! Grrr! I write up posts and they publish rather than schedule or save as drafts.  Some of you may have seen my preview last night since while I was writing this post it decided to publish.
Sorry!! I removed it right away but it still shows in the reader and on the sidebar.  Oops!!

Today I am popping in to share the new Whiff of Joy Challenge.  This week's challenge is fun and easy!!

Bows and Buttons!!!!

  For my creation I used the adorable Willow kneeling which I colored with copics.  The designer paper is My Mind's Eye.  The white flower is hand crocheted and has a button in the middle from my stash.

For more inspiration for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge, please visit my dt sisters:   Jane, KathrinKylie, Louise, Manuela.  Michele To join our challenge, please link your creation here.

Oh it's gorgeous, Chris!! Love your work - you know I'm a big fan. :) On your blogger issues....all I have is one suggestion. If you're using Internet Explorer, try another browser (like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome). A lot of people using IE (especially IE 9.0) are having the same issues.
