* Path of Positivity: #76 Midway: Toast With Margaret


Happy Monday!

Please allow me to welcome my newest follower, Terry Wietsma-Girbes. Thank you so much, Terry, for showing interest in my blog!

I'm back today with a midway post for the Path of Positivity Challenge blog.

This month the theme is #76 Anything Goes with the optional twist of Character Traits.
We are all made up different qualities that come together to make up our overall character. What are your qualities or character traits?

Prizes this month include:
  • $12 gift certificate from Bugaboo Stamps, our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.

Today I thought I'd make a snarky Margaret card about my 'night owl' traits. I feel at my best in the late evening and this is often when I do my crafting. I could stay up all night, and often have to force myself to go to bed. If I go too early, I just toss and turn until the early hours.
I am definitely NOT a morning person - it takes me quite a while and several black coffees to properly waken up. I am not the sort of person who can jump out of bed either. It is common knowledge among my friends and family not to disturb me in the early morning. If you do disturb me, I'm likely to be a little (or a lot, depending on how early it is) on the grumpy side :) . 
Snarkiness, irony and mild sarcasm are also character traits of mine - of course, if and when I use these, they are tongue-in-cheek comments and are not intended to be rude or cruel!

I think Bugaboo's Margaret says it best here:

Margaret makes me smile! You can find this stamp Margaret Live in a Toaster at the Bugaboo stamp shop. I coloured the image with Copic markers and added some white highlights. I matted it onto purple card, inking the edges of the card with Dusty Concord Distress Oxide. The background is a stamp, inked up with Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord and Wilted Violet Distress Oxides, then spritzed with water and stamped onto white 300gsm card. The edges of the mandala pattern are lightly inked to add a little more colour and then the edges of background card are inked to add a border. The background has Bakers' Twine wrapped around and tied in a small bow and is matted onto purple card. Margaret's image was popped on foam tape for some dimension.

Many thanks to Bugaboo Stamps, this month's guest sponsor,
