Celebrate Good Times!

goodtimes 

Good morning!! Well, I had the best day off yesterday…breakfast downtown on a sunny morning and a bit of fun shopping at Michaels and the Apple Store (yes, a shiny new black iPad 2 is on its way to me in 2-3 weeks :)  Then I got home and a sweet little package from Taylored Expressions was in the mail with some new My Mind’s Eye papers and prima flowers :)  So a fabulous day all round!  I also finished this fun little card that uses this week’s Colour Q colours :)  I was inspired by the fabulous card by Kasia, one of the design team members.  My fellow Diva Tosh had also made a similar flower on her blog, so I went over to view her tutorial and created this super fun loopy felt flower.  I also picked a sentiment that makes my card perfect for the new challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey…to be inspired by a song.  Remember Kool and the Gang?  “Celebrate good times, come on and celebrate!"  Kind of a fun song and reminds me of the little parties I have in the studio!! LOL   I hope you are celebrating good times wherever you are…oh, and any iPad users out there?  I could use some little bits of information to get me started…have any?  I’ve been in Etsy looking for a funky cover…need help with that too ;)  Thanks for visiting!

This has nothing to do with the card, although I liked it :) I actually wanted to show you this iPad cover. It is incredibly awesome, although I don't know how well it actually works.
