Santa has his methods!

I apologise if I have had to enter via a comment on the challenge blog.  I will amend this post if that isn't the case!

I have had issues all day with connecting to the internet.  I found out on the News today that my internet provider was the victim of a cyber attack and that the whole system is being overloaded by excessive traffic.  It affects about 600,000 customers so it is no small glitch.

I have managed to open the odd challenge site but inlinkz isn't showing up.  However, even opening up the challenges and e-mails and such is hit and miss (more miss than hit though!).  I haven't even been able to access Blogger to write posts up until about 30 minutes ago and I'm not optimistic that I'll be able to continue to do so either.

Update - so far so good today.  Let's hope it stays that way!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Robyn's Fetish Challenge - Use A Digi
Tuesday Morning Sketches - Choice of Three Sketches (Sketch 243)
The Paper Shelter - Hearts and/or Stars (Heart Shaped Balloon)
Winter Wonderland - Scandinavian Inspired (red and white)
Jingle Belles - Gold (edging on ribbon)
Décosse's Dynamite Doodles - September Link Up
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes

I will link up each of these challenges as and when the internet lets me access each blog!

I have used a gingham style paper from Rosie's Studio for the background.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and has been coloured with copic markers and then highlighted with Glossy Accents and Stickles.  I used some wide organza ribbon and some red glitter domes.
