Hope you are feeling simply fabulous,

P.S. Blogger has a post editor not even a mother could love! ;-) Apologies for any formatting ickiness: I am mourning the loss of my beloved old Blogger editor. We were all forcibly moved to the new one this week. ;-) And the new editor is a sad shadow of its former self. We hateses it, precious. Yes we do! I'm trying to figure out how I could turn such deep dislike into something constructive, but I'm not sure that will ever happen. How about You? Do you like the new Blogger editor?


P.P.S. "Have I told you lately how much I Love You?" There just aren't words to say how thankful I am for the incredible readers & friends that you are. You are ineffably fabulously marvelous!!! ((((hugs))))

Love your card and your play on words (I need cards like this more often than not as mine are almost always a "little latte.").
Thanks for the freebies!

Gotta get off the computer it's starting to thunder, but I read on somebodies blog tonight that you can get the old blogger back! something about up at the top there is a place to click and pull down a menu that includes restore to old blogger. I wouldn't know, I'm blogless! Thanks so much for all you do, love it! Will be back when it's not thundering in my ear.

Such an amazing card! I adore the colors and the textures. You can mix elements and make them work like no other.

It's so pretty! Love it <3
Well I think I much prefer the old blogger interface than the new. The new interface is more easy to write new posts, but for the other, I think I'm used with the old one. It's a little pity that it will be removed, however.

xo,
Regina
