Pardon my rrrraaammmblinnnng....


It's Manic Monday again, folks! Hope you're enjoying it anyway.

It's been gorgeous the last couple of days here in Northern Cali. Wanted to make a matching spring card for today's post!

Featuring Fairy Manga from the Sugar Nellie line. Thought she was an angel though because of those wings!

CS is from American Crafts, PP from Basic Grey and kol laj, brads from Dear Lizzy.

I have been doing quick, simple cards lately. Hope you all don't mind. I've got lots of things going on. But I don't feel right when I don't make cards at least 3 times a week! He he!

I even have an entry for Rockin' Rebel 2 at CA&F. It's very simple and quick, and an exact copy of one of the cards I've already made.

Going into it with just having fun in mind and some friendly competition though. Learned my lesson with TGF's Royal Battle. I think I got really into it and was really hyped on the thought of a possible win and then, CRASH! But hey, that's part of life, isn't it?

Thank you for all of you who voted and supported the game (especially our team!)! I told myself not to play any challenges for a while because despite sounding like a sore loser, well, I was really bummed to be honest with you (hey, that's what a blog is for, right? I'm supposed to talk about feelings and not just supplies here).

But I'm not gonna let that stop me any longer because I really REALLY enjoyed the game! And meeting my new friends- Tanya, Sheena, & Stephanie and getting to know Sunghee better - was really priceless. (heee hee, my nickname in high school was Corny Corinne :), i wonder why).

A friend on facebook wrote a quote "When you expect nothing, you always receive a lot" as her status. I'm going to do that with this challenge. Seeing people's takes on their Anyas/WS/Ians as their favorite stars had me ROLLING ON THE FLOOR! I can't wait to finish my entry & join in on the FUN!

But I don't completely agree with that quote though. (*WARNING* Serious tone ahead...). The rest of it goes, "No matter how little you receive, if you expected even less, you will be happy."

It wouldn't be right going through life, expecting nothing from everybody. Or even thinking positively for that matter.

Anyway, this was supposed to be a fast post. Thanks for listening to me ramble, kikiki (<----that's my soft laughter). Have a good one! Peace out!

She's too sweet! Love all the candy colors! :)

P/s: I expect at least some basic human decency - that's as low as I can get - like saying "thank you" or "sorry".

Hey there's nothing wrong with quick and simple cards, especially when they turn out as cute and magical as this one did! Love it!
