A Ribbon and Brad Thank You Card

Nothing exciting to report from today. Went to spin class this morning and then went grocery shopping in the afternoon and then camped out on my couch for the rest of the evening. A blanket + a warm kitty = a cozy nap.

I also got a bunch of holiday things done today in the form of writing Christmas cards, wrapping up presents, and preparing packages for mailing tomorrow. I hope to be able to get to the post office right when it opens so that I'm not in a huge line.

Best thing about going to the office tomorrow? We get to do casual Friday wear from now until the end of the year. While I don't mind dressing up for work, I like being able to pick out a random t-shirt and shlep off to work. Last week, I asked the big boss if we could continue the "watching movies at the office the week between Christmas and New Year's" tradition and he said yes. Yep, he rocks.

Nails: I took off the forest green nail polish I was rocking all week so that I could try this Ulta Quake Duo set that I got 50% off yesterday. I think it's their attempt at a crackle polish. The right hand crackled more than the left for some reason. The base coat polish is called Ruby Slipper (so festive and pretty!). Ulta has similar duo sets: black crackle + gold polish (gave this to Robyn for her birthday this year), black crackle + pink polish (have this, need to try it out), silver crackle + green polish (have this, will keep it as a present to give away at some point).
Card: Here's my card for today. I had intentions of making a flat card so that I could have it on hand for when I need to mail a thank you card, but these fabric brads that I bought a while ago caught my eye instead.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Charcoal and Yellow Ochre
Stamps: Studio G (sentiment, heart)
Brad: American Crafts, Large Brads- Dandelion, Recollections- Rhinestone Brads, Tapestry by C.R. Gibson- Ruby Lemonade.

Song of the day:
"What Christmas Means to Me"- Stevie Wonder. I was boogie-ing to this song in the car on the way to the grocery store. Sure, I probably looked silly, but I was in such a good mood that I don't really mind if people saw me.
