2.14 - Be Jolly

Hello again! This is my second post today. Woot Woot! I had some technical difficulties with my laptop. Mainly, it wasn't letting me upload pictures to my blog posts. And me, being computer illiterate, had no idea what to do. Fortunately, my programmer husband is working from home again today. I sent him an email stating my problem, and finishing with 'Help me Obi Wan. You're my only hope!' He came up to my craft cave and fixed the problem! YAY!! Basically, whatever thingy my laptop was on wasn't compatible with something so he switched that thingy to the Firefox thingy and now it's all good! Make sense? Good! LOL! Here's my next card:


and the inside:

I love everything about this card....except for the sentiment placement. I was trying to stay true to the sketch for CTS#64







I first tried to heat emboss onto a transparency sheet, with disastrous results. So I stamped over the buck. Oh, well. I will make another of these but will place the sentiment centered under it instead. Since I used an animal and made a Christmas card, I'll also be entering this for Merry Monday #95





I'm on a roll, but I will take the fur baby out for a walk before composing another post again. Thanks for putting up with me and hope to see you soon! LOL!

Lucky you Chris, with a hubby to fix your computer, mine can't even turn one on. Great card, love the simplicity of it as it makes the reindeer shine.

Well...I like the sentiment stamped on his nose lol. I also like how you repeated the image on the inside of the card.

I can just picture the words said with the computer issues & the transparency malfunction...oh dear. Must remember the Obi-Wan for my next tech issue, because you KNOW there will be one! lol
I kinda like the sentiment on his nose, but I also understand the desire to have it underneath him & centred. Like last week's CTS ;)

Hanging those lights on the antlers is such a clever and fun idea! I love how your card turned out, and the sentiment looks perfect the way you did it! Great card!

Oh, this is so cool! I love that stag silhouette image and how you added the lights -- fabulous! Great take on the sketch!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
