Hello springtime

It's finally Friday... I'm free again... get my motor runnin' for a wild weekend!

LOL ok, so I know those lyrics are from some song but I can't put my finger on which one right now. And not that my plans really consist of anything wild and crazy but I do have today and tomorrow off so YEAH for the weekend! ;)

My good pal Rach, who is a newly converted Gleek... YEAH!, sent me this link and this link and this link to some fun Glee spoilers and news that I just had to share with the rest of my Gleek pals as we count down the days 'til April 13th. Can you tell I'm really, really excited for Glee to come back on? What can I say, Idol has turned out to be a complete snoozefest so I need my Glee fix desperately! ;)

Ok, onto today's card... it's another quickie that I did using the same pre-made kraft cardbase as yesterday and once again there is no pattern paper in sight! Instead I used a page from a little journaling notebook and then stamped the flowers over it. It's different from what I've been doing lately which I think is why I enjoyed making it so much... ya know, the whole 'step outside your comfort zone' thing and all. I don't know... I've just felt like I need to shake things up within my 'style' a bit. So here I am 'expanding my stamping horizons' LOL
The Miss Anya is altered using one of the Miss Anya Love's heads with one of the original Miss Anya's bodies. So even though I'm changing some things up a bit, I know I'll never stop loving and playing with my precious character stamps. :)

Ok, it's time for me to go hit the town and get my hair cut... woot, woot!

I like how you are shaking things up!! I think sometimes we need to do that now and then! :)

So I started looking at the links but then stopped myself. I like to be surprised...he he he! Can't wait till the 13th! *SPOILER ALERT* But you know I follow Neil Patrick Harris on Twitter and he said he'd be in one of the episodes -- can't wait for that!

Such a sweet card! Love how the flower stamp extended and that leaf pin is perfect!
