Well thats true for the type of day I’ve had today and an apt description for the card I made today.

I got up to no internet this morning … well we did have internet but I didnt 🙁

After lots of testing, pulling of hair and steam coming out of ears and a rather long stressful phone call with the dear husband & Puta Guru we worked out our network server was deaded :(   Hubby managed to talk me through changing settings so I could at least have access to the internet today. This is a good thing as I had a few online jobs to do today with orders to put through and a blog post I do each wednesday at the Utah Diva’s International Blog

One thing I did learn during the ‘black out’ was that I can type a post into Word 2007 and then publish it from there right into your blog – in this case it was the Utah Diva’s Blog post I did that I tried it on and was rather surprised it worked.

Now after all that with the internet and servers and networks one would think a cup of coffee would hit the spot – well guess what else was broken – yup my espresso machine :(  Maybe I should take donations for me to get a nice new one so throw your spare change my way!! lol

Ok enough of that …. where’s the card??

Prayer Bayou

Here it is … and yes its using Baroque Motifs again – I do try not to use it but just cant help myself! Here’s the recipe …

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, So Many Sayings
Ink: River Rock, Old Olive, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou
Accessories: Stamp-a-majig, Soft Sky double stitched ribbon

These colours are a little out of my comfort zone and I wasnt sure about it but my good friend Maggie said it was lovely and she has good taste!

Lets just hope the ladies at next week’s Stamp A Stack like it too! What do you think? do you give it a yes or a no?



  1. Hi Leonie…got back home from Cairns last night to freezing cold Melbourne and now have some serious blog-hopping to catch up on. Love, love, love this card and the colours you’ve used. It is a fave set of everyone too I think!

  2. Aww thanks Carol & Jill … I finally got the espresso machine to work but its having issues more than I’d like so will need to start putting aside some of my SU commission for a new one i think – or maybe have a “help me get my new espresso machine” class here!!

  3. Maggie is right. This is a beautiful card and you Stamp A Stackers will love it. I am sorry you were having computer problems…glad you were able to post. BUT NOT COFFEE! Sending my donation express mail…LOL

  4. leonie, your card looks Very comfortable and Gorgeous. i love that set, but for some reason i don’t own it. silly me.

    hope your frown turns upside down soon.

    xoxox ~ carol.
