Thank you for being my friend...

Does anyone else have the opening song from Golden Girls running through their head after reading that line? LOL

TGIF my friends!
Yesterday was a pretty good day and I am happy to report that a Dove chocolate or two did the trick and I'm feeling right as rain. I was feeling so good in fact that I decided to take the time to film another 'start to finish' card making series. I got a lot of wonderful comments on the one I did last month so I'm thinking of trying to make it a monthly thing. The videos can be found here, here and here or over on Color Me Copic if you want to take a look-see.

Not only did I ink up yet another neglected stamp from my stash (two, if you count Simply Anya's legs, LOL) but I also put a new paper pad to work. Sure, those little 6x6 pads look real pretty all lined up on their shelf but the satisfaction of actually ripping into those papers is even better then seeing them neat and organized. All four of the new Miss Caroline paper pads can be found at the ATS store and even though I only used the Fiddlesticks line, all four of them are super cute in their own way. :)

Well as much as I would like to stay and chat, it's time for me to go get myself ready for the day.
Smooches!
