Sitting pretty

I went back to work today but am still feeling full of cold. Yesterday they were upgrading the Broadband and we couldn't get onto the Internet after lunchtime which was very frustrating. They said it would be down for a few minutes, make that several hours. My laptop was supposed to be repaired within 2 weeks, 3 weeks later it still isn't back, grrr. Now the good news, for the first time ever I won the challenge at Passion for Promarkers and the prize is my choice of 3 Sugar Nellie stamps, woo hoo. As I love these stamps I am over the moon with this prize.

Now onto my card. The digi image is one I bought last Christmas and never used, shame on me. She is called Sophie with present and is from Digi Stamp Boutique. I just love this colour combo of aqua and pink. The gorgeous sparkly snowflakes are from Me and My Big Ideas and match the colour scheme perfectly. Sentiment is from Pollycraft coloured with Promarkers.

Its just gorgeous, I love that image and used it loads last year. Well done on your win, oh so many lovely new stamps to choose from too. Sorry to hear you are having to wait for that laptop. I am still waiting for my printer, 3 weeks now. Got the printer back but no cable, no ink and no set up cd, so waiting on that now. gRRRR indeed lol.
