Hey Nicole and fellow stampers...

I am sorry about the screw up on the link, I actually have a JOB that requires me to be away from home and work while you all sleep, so I attempted to link from my SCS Gallery...apparently it didn't work, I'm not sure what bee was up WHO's bonnet but with this type of atmosphere I will pass on the DT Challenge so please remove my name from the #45..

Thanks for all those "understanding" "ladies" out there!
