The Character Cafe’s 12 hops of Christmas Blog Hop!


Good morning, hope all is well with you.  I AM NOT so well.  My computer decided to go totally black on last night, after days of major problems.  So I did what I was told to do and did a system recovery-should have been no problem right?  NOT!!!!!  It decided to tell that I didn’t have windows at all!  So, finally did another system recovery, and all was well-so I thought-it decided to keep shutting off on me.  This was at about midnight last night!  Then this morning, I’m trying to FINALLY put this post up and I can’t get into blogger dashboard to do anything-it just tells me ERROR.  So I finally got windows live writer downloaded and here I am.   I AM SO SO SO SORRY TO ALL OF YOU, BUT ESPECIALLY TO KENDRA AND KELLY!!!!!  Ok, onto fun stuff.





The Character Cafe’ is having a new release with a twist.  This is our 12 hops of Christmas blog hop.  There is a VERY nice grand prize to be won by 1 very lucky person at the end of this.  So, here’s the deets:

Hey Sara... didn't realize this was happening to you! My son got a nasty virus on my desktop (thankfully, kids only use that!) and it was doing the same thing. Glad you made it back though, what a sweet card you made with this little Chibi! I adore it :)
