Let me start by apologizing to all of you whose blogs I follow because I haven't been around to visit or comment in a couple of weeks. Right now, I'm having painful back problems and I can only sit at the computer keyboard for so long and then I have to quit. The break periods are getting longer and more frequent and the periods of actual productivity are getting shorter and there are fewer of them. I'm down to about 20 minutes of work, then a break of an hour or so before I can go back to the keyboard.
By the time I get my DT commenting obligations done, and type up a post for the day, my back is pretty much done so there is little time for visiting and commenting on the blogs of those of you I dearly love. I'm hoping it will get better with more rest so forgive me if you are visiting me regularly and I'm not returning the huge compliment that is. My visits will return, I promise!
Today I want to share a card I did for the Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz, which Jan's Digi Stamps is sponsoring this month. My card features one of Jan's older sets, called "Holiday Joy," and it's one of my favorites. It reminds me of those childhood days when we watched the mailbox, hoping for Christmas cards with interesting stamps and post marks, and even the occasional package because everything went through the US mail back in those days before Fed Ex. Even though I know UPS existed back then, we rarely saw their brown trucks in residential neighborhoods because mostly they delivered big boxes which were beyond the weight limits of the post office and those went primarily to businesses.
By the way, Jan's has a fantastic sale going on many of her holiday sets and there's even a freebie available over at the store. Check it out by clicking right there -----> Jan's Digi Stamps
