This Friday Night..... We'll do it all again....

K. So, here's the thing. Sometimes Friday comes along and I'm like, "Oh, Yay! It's Friday. That makes me happy." Sometimes Friday comes along and I'm like, "Looking forward to the weekend!" And yet, other times, Friday comes along and I'm like, "HOLY HECK SERIOUSLY IT'S ABOUT FREAKING TIME! FOR REALS!" Let's just say that today fits best into the latter. Just say'n.

I have a pretty awesome birthday card to share with you for Friends With Flair Friday today. I used the amazingly wicked cool Ornate Artisan Stackers stamps by Samantha Walker for this card. Can I even BEGIN to tell you how freaking amazing these stamps are? I can't. Which is why I must demonstrate their fabulousness with a card.

Happy Birthday


Yeah, I know, right?! They are so stinking amazingly awesome! They make me pull out far together too many adverbs, folks, they REALLY do! An editor would have a FIT looking at this post! It's drowning in adverb-ness! (And, perhaps, a few non-words, at that. Just say'n.)

Happy Birthday (detail)


Let's talk about the make up of this pretty lil' card. We already discussed the fabulous Samantha Walker for Unity stamps. K. Good. We also have some super cute Crate Paper patterned papers going on here. For reals, you guys, I love them. And I'm not usually into florals, but they have a cool vintage vibe going on that I just cannot resist. Period. And that ribbon? Yeah, that's totally a GORGEOUS silk ribbon from May Arts. {Heart}. It. Totally. The super floppy and fabulous flower is from Making Memories and we have a few scattered pearls by Queen and Company. The flower center is none other than Prima! *sigh* It's the stuff that paper crafting dreams are made of. *double sigh*

Happy Birthday (detail2)


Oh, and yes, I did happen to cut those out by hand because, well, I'm a little bit *crazy* and I enjoy doing things like that, BUT, you totally don't have to because Spellbinders has this amazing set of dies that will do the work FOR YOU! Yup. Ornate Stacker DIES to go with the stamps! *love.* (Now if I can just manage to find a Grand Calibur on the side of the road somewhere.....HA!)

And to celebrate this much needed Friday, enjoy the best music video I have seen, well, since they used to make good music videos and they actually showed them on MTV instead of crap reality shows. Just say'n. (If you are anywhere even remotely close to my age, I think you will agree.)



(NO, seriously, it has the BEST CAST EVER!!!! K. I'm done now. Jingle Out and stuff. Just say'n.)

  2. First of all, that is a delicious card! REALLY delicious! I admit it - this big old critter is SUCH a girly-girl, and that card is fun, feminine, and BEAUTIFUL! As for the video? I hadn't seen it till now & I laughed till I was just about sick. She's a fave of mine anyway, but this video tops I KISSED A GIRL and everything in between! Had to save it! HUGS!!!!
