How Could I?

Does it only happen to me?

I wrote a post about thirty minutes ago, then accidently deleted half of it before I could actually post it! So in a temper, (I'm a leo... I have one) I stupidly deleted the rest of it as well, and stormed away from my laptop ranting at myself and anyone else unfortunate enough to cross my path (sorry daughter!). What an idiot... its taken me thirty minutes to get over it and start again!  Well, thirty minutes, some swearing, a bar of chocolate, a cup of tea and a few deep breaths!

Take Two...

I have discovered the crafting 'challenge'.  As you can see from the last few posts I've been entering challenges (well one, but I'm allowed three entries!)  The first challenge I entered awhile ago - I DIDN'T WIN! Shocking, I know. I didn't expect to win, but I secretly (like the rest of us) REALLY wanted to!  Now I've discovered the 'multiple' entry!  I have to say it seems to defeat the object to me.. but who am I to question the crafting Gods! You can enter ONE project in MULTIPLE challenges! WOW - time-saving, or what?
Now all I have to do is get this 'linking' business right (still don't think I have!) and I'll be away...
So... this is my third entry into the Creative Craft Challenge 2 - '3 Presents'
Also... # 194 Chistmas is Coming - The Crafty Pad (great site, by the way)
And... One Stitch at a Time 137 - Make 1 for Christmas
Finally... Ooh La La - C... Christmas
... and here it is...
I'm really into this fold at the moment, I think its called a 'joy' fold (not sure), but I think it looks great.  I used a christmas topped I've had forever matted it onto mirri card.  I also matted the gold spotted hunkydory foiled accent card I had in my stash onto mirri, three little present embelishments, the base was made with a sheet of cricut 'earthtones' textured cardstock, scored at 4" and 10"... and hey presto...
I'm sorry, this post isn't as good as the original, but what can you do???
Blah... blah... blah...
