.......ever had one of those weekends where nothing goes quite as you plan it? That's exactly the kind of weekend I am experiencing. I won't share all the excrutiating details, but it involves a home improvement project which was "easy to install" which has involved several trips to Home Depot, consumed all day and culminated in DH and I having a slight disagreement and if all that wasn't enough, said project centered around the AC unit which is now, not working. Yes folks, Florida at the end of April with no AC. It could be worse, it could be Florida at the end of July with no AC, but needless to say, my enthusiasm for creating went by the wayside.......
One of the (few) highspots of the weekend was the movie I watched last night "Slumdog Millionaire" Highly deserving of an Oscar IMHO. If you haven't seen it, I do recommend it - one word of warning though, I did find it built up slowly so stick with it, because it is completely worth it!

Do you like Magnolia images? Have you checked out the new challenge blog "Just Magnolia"?
I have a nice little collection of Magnolia images so I plan to play along on a regular basis so each of them will get a little more ink time.
I'm enjoying the sketch challenges. They really make me think about the layout of a card and how it will all come together.
I'm generally a bit hap hazard when it comes to card making -I color the image before I choose the paper and then wonder why I can't get things to look as thought they match. I don't plan the embellishments either, and then get frustrated because I don't have the right colors. How much easier it is if you do a bit of forward planning.... which applies to many things, I suppose. So there you have it, not only a card, but a deep philisophical thought for the day!

I have retyped the text but I can't get the pretty Angel Company flyers to come back up so I am giving up in disgust.
All the details on the wonderful promotions can be found here , including the Grab Bags, the April Promotion and the very cute Stamps Of The Month, but the biggest news of all ( I think) is that the 2009 discontinued list is out - and all the stamps on it are 25% off! I would link to it on the The Angel Company website, but I can't find it there - so, if anyone reading this would like a copy, please just shoot me an e-mail and I will happily send you a copy. There are tons and tons of stamps on it which makes me very excited about the new catalog but first, I must see which of the retiring stamps I need - because you know there will be some.....

........there was a princess who lived in a castle in the clouds. Another sheet of DP from the Once Upon A Time stack which sat neglected and unloved in my paper stash until this weekend when this idea popped in to my head. I fiddled with the layour for much longer than you would believe, given that there are only two stamped images and one embellishment on there but I quite like how it came out.
The colored image is from Magnolia and the sentiments are from The Angel Company's "Yield To The Princess" set.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

The paper is Basic Grey "Sultry" collection which is one of my all time favorite BG paper. I actually had to buy two of the 6 x 6 pads to allow myself to use one. Sad, I know, but what can I tell you..... I bet there are some of you reading this who know just what I mean
I am hoping next week will bring me some more oomph so I can get back to stamping. To make it worse, my Funky Kits order came in (yip, doing great with the whole "not buying any new stuff thing") so I have new rubbah waiting to be inked.
Now that I blog myself I get why people like comments.... and I do make an effort to do it more, so I am wondering -is there a way to leave comments through google reader that I just don't know about? Any suggestions much appreciated!
I have too many things I want to do and not enough time to do them all in!!! And yet, I keep blurfing and finding more great blogs....
When I joined Fun Stampers Journey, I really had no expectations other than getting some new craft supplied at a discounted price. I wa...
