Congrats Cassie! Email me your snail mail address and I'll get the candy out to you! Thanks again to those who entered. You have no idea how gobsmacked I am that you all visit my little corner of the world. Never in a million years did I think my blog would have this many hits within the first year! I still scratch my head at it all. :)

This looks like a well put together card on the surface, but apparently I wasn't 'all there' the other night when I made this card. I decided I was going to play along with this week's Sugar Bowl challenge. I picked out this beautiful My Mind's Eye paper and then a cute Sugar Nellie image that a friend had given me. The coloring of the image was a disaster so I decided to start again with this Magnolia image. Only after piecing the whole card together did I then realise that what I had done. Sugar Nellie doesn't sell Magnolia!! What a numbnut! LOL Oh well. It's still a cute card. :)

This cute Hilda is colored with SU reinkers on her dress (a combination of Soft Sky and Certain Celery) and Distress Inks for her hair (Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo). The panels were not sponged this time but just machine stitched. I've been on a bit of a roll with the sewing machine lately. Love the finished look it gives a card. Then I just added some buttons from a Foof-Fa-La and some more yummy ribbon and Martha Stewart's tag punch for the sentiment (from PTI).

I can't believe I don't own any Magnolia's of my own. I seriously need to add some to my collection, but I'm afraid that if I buy some, I won't be able to stop!

Having been in the US for almost 9 years now, I feel like I've been quite Americanized, but I still spell and say certain words with an Australian accent. Australia has a lot of slang in their everyday language that I don't use all that often, but when I do, it tends to confuse people. The term 'flat out like a lizard drinking' means working/playing at a fast pace. 'Gobsmacked' is another term I tend to use and it means surprised or astounded. Want to learn a few more? Check out this list of slang! My favorite term - "Budgie Smugglers"! LMBO!

Have an great day!

p.s. my students always loved learning the australian "slang" when we covered that unit and trying to work it in to everyday conversation! unfortunately, not many of them were really pumped about WORKING like a lizard so it never came up!
