A Card and a Few Other Random Things

First, up. I'm not sure where this card came from because it was so quick to make, and well I really like it. Am I allowed to really like it, right? Well, just the truth, I really like it. So here it is...

Card stock: Stampers Select White, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate - Papertrey Ink
Patterned paper: Animal Crackers - g.c.d Studios; Bitty Box Basics Spring Moss - Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessings - Papertrey Ink
Ink: Craft White - Stampin' Up!
Ribbon: Chocolate Dots - American Crafts 

Have you all ever heard of g.c.d. Studios? I hadn't but man I love that paper. 

And onto the randomness...

I changed my profile picture. I realized that my hair has not been blond in some time, and that at the moment it's pretty dark. It always throws me off when people change their pictures. I'm such a visual person that it really throws me for a loop. So just a heads up! When you see that girl with dark hair ... IT ME!

It's moments like this that you are glad you have a camera around.


I finally got a label maker so I could see the names of my stamp sets clearly on the sides of the CD labels. I know this probably isn't blog worthy normally on a normal blog, but oh so worthy on this decorating/crafting blog!

Off to read The Help. It's so good.

Oh, I almost forgot. I know I've done this to you before, but we have big Everything But The Kitchen Sink news coming out on the 15th! I hope you all will be as excited as I am!

I love this card and the new pic too. I've always been a brunete. Never had the guts to dye it. However, no that I've seen a few "stray grays" I'm considering it :0) Maybe just highlights first. Have a good read!
