Reach for the (Dog) Stars

You can tell I'm getting withdrawal symptoms can't you! I'm hunting out last years Christmas Cards! We (that's the royal we) have come to the conclusion that the camera is well and truly...passed it's sell by date. So I rang mum and borrowed her camera this afternoon.
"Can I borrow your digital camera for five minutes Mum?"
"I haven't got a digi camera" said she.
"Um, yes you have mum, you upload your photos to your computer, don't you?"
"Do I? Oh, I've never done that. I've got a plug in thingy-what's-it that I slot the camera into and it prints out all my photos. So, is that digi then?"
"Yes mum. But don't you ever download your pictures to your computer?"
"No, never done that. Can I do that? Why would I want to to that? I just print them on my thingy-what's-it... it's quite good but it doesn't work when there's no paper..."
Now you know why I have a few loose screws's in the genes!
This card was cut at an angle so I could place a glitter snowflake star on the inside. I was trying to give the illusion that the dogs were reaching for it, so of course this card went off to one of my doggy sitting people. Did you know that The Dog Star, Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky and the Egyptians based their calender on the rising of it. (That was me trying to be clever, but I actually Googled it)
Pink Petticoat Papers, Penny Black image (swap) and coloured back in the time when I only had Whisper pens!
Time to say 'Hi' and a big (((wave)) to new Follower Shazza, pop over to Shazza's Craft Connection for some lovely scrapbook layouts... One more follower to add! (I've got about ten windows open...(that's computer windows not window in the house...well, just one or...(get on with it and stop waffling..) Hi (((wave)) to Ildiko who's just followed and...can't find a link yet...but I've got one of her ATC's sitting right next to my computer!
