Some fun things!

After hearing the sad American Idol results new tonight (still in shock) I decided to counter-act the sadness with HAPPY thoughts. A girl can try, right?

My first "happy" moment was when my dog barked at the mail delivery person. That bark signaled the arrival of my special delivery from Emma's Paperie. I love the way Cindy wraps the contents in beautiful tissue paper, ties it in a string, and attached a little flower thank-you tag to it. I just did NOT want to open it, except I knew what was in the paper, and wanted it even more. Curious? Well, most of it was from the new arrival section of her store. I'm taking it all to my crop tomorrow night.

My second happy thing is a baby card. I used the negative of the little duck shape on the Cricut New Arrivals cartridge, and backed it with patterned paper. It's one of my favorites of the week. The papers are from Adorn-it and American Crafts.

And the next happy thing... well, I can't quite spill all the beans right now, but you will see something soon HERE! Check back on Friday!

Meanwhile, have a wonderfully "happy" (okay, are you sick of hearing that word right now?) weekend!


Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else. Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thess. 15-18.
