My Computer Woes... & Cafe News

Hi all, We're having a wonderful Holiday Monday here in Canada... sun was shining all day :) I had some computer trouble earlier and boy was I upset. I was using my computer this morning with no problems, then I moved from one room to the other being careful as I could while juggling my coffee, mouse and the laptop. When I set my computer down, it turned off (you thought I was going to say I spilled my coffee on it right?! LOL)... I turned it back on and continued on my merry blog reading way. Well, I went to type a comment and nothing... hmmm... my mouse worked fine, but NONE of the rest of my keyboard worked! I spent 2 hours on the phone with HP tech support and still did not have a functioning keyboard! Ack!
Well, my wonderful partner/neighbour, Kelly has an equally wonderful brother who fixes computers and he just so happened to be coming out this way... it turns out that my battery pack for my laptop wiggles just enough to wreak havoc at times. Don't get me wrong, I am very thankful that it was a hardware issue and not something happening to my files, but all he had to do was remove and re-insert my battery pack... aughhh.....
It usually happens in threes right? Well, I've been dealing a bit with spam, then today's keyboard woes, what's next??? I'm afraid... very afraid... LOL

So, onto my news! The Character Cafe is sponsoring Inspirational Card Sketches challenge for the week. The challenge starts tomorrow (they usually post around 6am... gosh, I'm hoping NOT to be awake, but I'm kind of torn... it is our first sponsorship). The winner of their challenge this week gets to choose 3 images from The Cafe as their prize!
Also, a few of their design team members are going to be working with our images (I'm so excited for that as well).
Well, that's about it for now... make sure you check it out and play along this week for your chance to win some goodies!

On another note, we're holding back images in order to gather together a design team real soon, so keep an eye out! We're just working out final details :)

Happy crafting!
