Meet Margaret.  Margaret is one of the many fabulous stamp from Bugaboo Stamps.  Margaret and her Toaster have an intimate relationship, or so it seems to me, which is why I instantly fell in love with her!

She looks grumpy but classy, chic but ragged and just downright "who gives a poop!"

You have GOT to make your way over to our sponsor this week, Bugaboo Stamps.  I promise you - you won't stop laughing if you hit the stamps that attract me.  But fear not, there are beautiful and wonderful stamps for everyone.  

This week's Challenge Theme over at SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS is:

and don't forget your SENTIMENT!!!  

I was SO taken with Margaret (and being aware that Margaret is The Secret Samara) that I totally missed the details for the theme of this week's challenge.  And I am one of the Designer's.  Pitiful!  But, as I volunteered to do my card once again - I was told the Challenge is One, Two or Three of the above - Blue, Snow and/or Glitter.

Take note of Margaret's Eye Glasses and Lips.  Phew, that was close!  Enjoy, and please pop over to both SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS CHALLENGE and to BUGABOO STAMPS.  You won't regret it!

Please double click to read the sentiment as I took only one picture of THIS Margaret  

Then, just like me, I succumbed to MY OWN pressure to create a blue Margaret...but LOVE the above M.


 and glittery...
but no sno.  Margaret just couldn't bear it!!!
