Elegant...and Alex too!

Is this elegant? Oooo, I'm really not sure whether it is or not - depends upon your own interpretation of the word I guess, though I'm glad this week's 'My Time to Craft' challenge was specifically 'easy elegance' as the easy part may just help this card qualify!

I was also wondering if I'd blown one of my few resolutions at the first test. I had planned to be more prompt in adding my cards to challenge blogs - and technically (!) I have improved, as last time I posted after lunch and this week I'm posting before! Stretching it a bit I know, but hey, I'm trying!

I've also made my first official purely digital scrapbook layout - its for a scraplift challenge with the wonderful Sweet Shoppe Designs . Only problem is that I am having soooo many problems uploading it to their web site I'm probably going to miss that deadline too - I was actually early (really!). I just haven't a clue what I'm doing incorrectly, and I think I'm reasonably computer-literate. Ah well, I'm happy to show you instead!:

We had our first snow this morning, much to the delight of my son, though as he's back to school today after the holidays, he won't get too much time to enjoy it. I wish it had snowed over the break - it would have been perfect for him.
