Singing Reindeer!

We've been having trouble with our computer and couldn't figure out why Jerry couldn't make copies of CDs... he's been doing it all along but all of a sudden kept getting error message... so he had to call our personal IT Department... friend Dave... and have him come over and check out the problem... well, come to find out.. there's no room!!!  Ut oh... guilty party is me! .... with all the photos I've been taking of Brayden and loading onto our hard drive... guess what??  Yep... It's filled to the max!

How does all this lead to a singing reindeer you ask?? Dave said we have to get a larger hard drive.. duh!!... or move some of the photos off and store on external hard drive or memory sticks... so I took a few minutes last night to start going through all my "old" card files and see what I could first  remove without having to remove any Brayden pictures...... can't just blame it on Brayden... as there's gobs of card photos from years and years of stamping!!!

In the process I came across this "reindeer singing".. it's just adorable and the thing is... I have absolutely no memory of it... well, that's not actually very surprising these days... but honestly I don't remember finding this one... think I must have filed it away and I never made this card...... but never fear.. this one could show up in my upcoming December Christmas Stamp-a-Stack...or at least something close to it as many of the items used have since retired!!!
