i’m back! my computer had a melt down, although i’ve been blaming my ISP all week, which asked me to monitor my connection. i was convinced it couldn’t be the computer because it’s less than three years old, but some would say i’m lucky for it to have lasted that long. my new computer is up and running so i can post again and catch up over the next couple days. anyway, this month’s challenge is to use your first magenta stamp, so here it is – a dogwood; i get a lot of comments about my ‘soft’ cards and it’s the soft look of this stamp that appealed to me. the card looks crooked, but it’s straight; i’m also still getting used to my new camera. thanks for popping by.
