smile in style!

so today has a smattering of everything that i love... Sassafras, Cosmo Cricket, rhinestones, ribbon, and bright colors!

it seems with the days getting shorter and no snow yet here in WA, i'm finding plenty of substitutes to make my evenings happy and bright. personally, i CANNOT wait until the Christmas lights go up--it lifts my mood so much in the evening.

i made this card for the Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge, and i'm sending it off to Lynne along with her goodies from my blog-o-versary giveaway (sorry Lynne, i spoiled the surprise :D) i love the sketch--totally inspired me to use some double sided papers that i tend to hoard because of their loveliness.

i love how it turned out, and i definitely smiled when i was done with the card. i like the vintage feel to the Sassafras papers in their Anthem and Vintage Yummy lines... here i just used the Anthem papers.

anyway, that's all for me tonight--i'm behind in so many things (cleaning, NaNoWriMo, etc), but NEVER FEAR... i will catch up. i'm actually being a nerd and wearing my "i eat novels for breakfast" button right now, even though no one's around to look at my shirt and the decorations on it.

ok, this is farewell for now. have a lovely Friday coming up :D
