Welcome Susan! That's great you are on Dodie's CT - she's a new designer here and we just love her and her designs. I'm sure you find it a real treat to create with her kits. As the ladies have previously mentioned, there are lots of great challenges here to help you "wade in the waters" of digi scrapping here at GDS.
I hope your little guy gets well soon! And I agree . . . come on Spring!
