joyful things...

Hello & Happy Friday!!

Have you ever had one of those blog posts....one that had so many technical difficulties...probably user oriented rather than blogger but it feels better to blame blogger....this post has taken for-ever to compose...my pics were just NOT loading...so I shaved down the post and la-tee-da...it worked...grrrrrrrr.....

I'm trying to team up my new goodies with my slightly neglected goods:)

My new goods:

EAD Vinyl Stickerz Fly away with me

My sadly neglected goods:

A Muse Madeira paper

So whaddya think?!! I'm LOVIN' the EAD Fly away with me Stickerz....they are super fun to paper piece with:)

I was inspired by Card Patterns #77:

Wee Memories has a fun Buttons, Brads and Bling Challenge running...

It is so easy smeasy to add some embellies onto a card...my card has doubled up buttons:)

Well, I hope to share some pics and a layout tomorrow...{crossing my fingers that blogger will cooperate with me} be on the lookout for my many blog candy slingings too....I have 7 priority flat rate envies with some candy in each ready to go postal:)

P.S. For those of you that played along yesterday on my vaca guesses...Those pics were taken in the lovely state of North Dakota...specifically the Theodore Roosevelt National Park!!

Hey! I was close...I said South Dakota, probably should have stuck to 'the Dakotas', huh?! :> Actually, you were in the land of where my grandmother grew up! I've never been, but heard stories.....thanks for sharing your pics and part of my history! :>

Cute card....love the hot air baloon! Sorry blogger wasn't cooperating. I was having probs uploading a pic when I did the flashback post, but when I loaded the Mt. Everest photos last night, no problems. So, hopefully, you won't have anymore challenges! :>:>

Those are stickers??? I really neglect my own stickers, not that I really have any stickers as fab as that. Oh, and I resisted the temptation to go to my LSS last night. Of couse I still have a post note with Cosmo Cricket Togetherness written on it right next to my computer so my willpower is really being tested!
