CCAYR Inspiration Post

This is my last post as guest designer for Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge Blog.  The challenge for April was something oval (rememberance of Easter) and ribbon.  I've loved being a GD for CCAYR and will continue to play in their challenges.  I have a good head start now on Christmas Cards and hope some of you got the chance to play along with us.

Here I used papers from CM (metallic gold) and from Imaginescue.  The image is colored with Copics and is an Elizabeth Bell image purchased at Whiff of Joy a few years ago.  The snowflakes were cut out with an MS snowflake punch and covered in Star Dust Stickles  The center medallion is a Spellbinder's die with ribbon from stash laced through the openings in the die.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have the time to join in on the challenge blog at CCAYR this month.  I know it's not close to Christmas and spring has just sprung BUT Christmas will be here before ya know it and yes, the cold weather will then be upon us again......EEK

Lovely card! I'd never much liked that Spellbinders die, but with the ribbon you've threaded through it, I DO like it!

i have about 3 viruses that are complete pain in the asses and i have been trying to get rid of them in vain for about 2 weeks. i really dont want to deal with it anymore so i was wondering how to do that operation where the computer is set back to its original factory settings and the hard drive is competely cleaned. my dad has been saying something about needing a disk to do this but im pretty sure ive seen my brother reset his computer without it. also, should doing this completely get rid of the viruses? thanks in advance
