Squigglefly Challenge 3514



 Happy Labor Day to all!  Today is a new challenge at the Squigglefly blog - You're A Star!  Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals are asking that those playing in the challenge use a star(s) on your card or project.

This is my first post from my new computer!  I went from Windows 7 on my now deceased computer to Windows 8 on this new Dell!  And, let me just say - it is culture shock!  And, I understand Windows 10 will be out very soon - good luck to those who are going to be using that!  Oh, and more shock - I've always used Internet Explorer - oh no - not now.  I have to use Google Chrome - my blog will no longer work with Internet Explorer!  Geez - a girl can't catch a break!

Okay, back to the reason for my post!  I hope you can join Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals this week for the new challenge - remember, there is always a prize to the weekly challenge winner.
