Blown Away

Well, okay, not really. But, I mean, I could have been! The wind was sure whooshing around today. I felt like I might have needed to carry an anchor around with me during my trip to the craft stores so that I didn't get blown away! Speaking of the trip to the craft stores (A.C. Moore and Michael's), it was rather anti-climatic. I was hoping that they'd have their Valentine stamps out, but it was a no-go. Michael's hasn't set up all their V-Day stuff and yet they found the time to put up a little section of St. Patrick's Day stuff up. Um, what? o_0 One holiday at a time, please? I ended up coming back home with cardstock, a whopping $2.42 load of it.

Here's today's card. I didn't really have a plan when I was making it, which is unusual because I'm a person that likes plans and templates. It was a great way to use some scraps. I'm especially proud of my ribbon tying skills. It doesn't come naturally, but watching many ribbon tying tutorials on YouTube helped a lot. Mini glue dots were used to secure the ribbon to the card so that it didn't flop around.

Card Specs:
Paper: KI Memories holiday fun paper pad
Embossing powder: Stampendous! in white
Ink: VersaMark

Side note: My origami dresses were featured over at Connie's blog today.

Song of the day: "Give It Up to Me"- Shakira. I heard this song when I was driving around today.

Very pretty card. And that is a little odd that they have St. P's day and not all Valentine's out yet.
