Hello buttercup...

Hey there!

I'm so excited... I've got a long overdue appointment to get my hair cut this morning. It has gotten way too long and I'm ready for a good chop. I'm a little nervous though because I'm trying out a new salon and I'm hoping everything goes well. I'd really like to finally find a local place to get my hair cut at so I can schedule appointments more regularly. Wish me luck. :)

My card today is for the Farm Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm. It's an easy one to use flowers and at first I was planning on inking up an Anya but when I pulled out the binder and saw the Beans first, I realized that I hadn't used Glisten Bean yet. So my plan shifted a bit and instead of the October Afternoon papers that I originally had in mind Bella Blvd seemed to be a better fit. The floral print is colorful and playful just like Glisten with her bouncing curls and cute grin. Then just for good measure I had to throw a couple more flowers on there. ;)

Alrighty, I've got a couple things to do before heading to town so it's time for me to sign off. TTYL!
