I finally have my computer back after doing without for a week. Then when I get back online I can read emails but NOT send emails. Great. Finally figured it out, had nothing to do with the computer. My server changed the port for outgoing mail. Would have been nice of them to notify users of that fact. Instead I had to dig the info off their website. Sigh . . .enough ranting.
First thing I noticed on catching up reading blogs was the challenge over at Vicki's Cheerful Stamppad. Red and White. No time to enter this, I have taxes to do! But wait! What's that she's got for a prize?!? Ooooh, aaaaahhhhhhhh, *drool* they look like Alice stamps! From Scroll Works!! AAARRRRGH! I had to stamp something, I need these stamps! Yeah right, I could buy them, but I have thousands already, and it's not as much fun as entering a contest.
So here is what I stamped for Vicki's contest. In a rush (as usual) I closed my eyes, turned around and picked up the first stamp from the shelf my fingers landed on. Oh crap, a daisy, well that doesn't go with a red and white theme. Hmmmm, with a little imagination a daisy could be red. They do dye them pink, blue and other colors for bouquets in florists shops. So I ran with it. Here it is.
Daisy was colored with watercolor pencils. Added glitter to the center and the leaf. Keeping my fingers crossed that I win the stamps! Now to finish catching up on my reading. The taxes will wait.
