Don't B Skrd - HE'S JUST GONNA EAT UR BRAINZ!

Ohhh - wait a sec though. Before he eats ur brainz, you will need them for my story.

At the Stampin' Up! convention this summer, I took a class from one of my fave SU employees ever in the world. However, it was one of my last classes and I was exhausted. You people have NO idea how overstimulated a person can get in that environment. I was at the point where I was sucking my thumb and whining. Seriously.

So instead of my usual center aisle seat, I sat on the floor in the back. I figured I'd make less of a scene when I fell over in a coma and started drooling.

But then my ADD kicked in and I noticed a really cool fountain style card holder on the table in the back with some of her samples. I went in for a closer look.It was a perfect tabletop display - multi levels, visually interesting, stable. Hmm. She must have gotten questions about it, because there was a little handwritten note next to it that said "Card holder from Dayspring.com".

Having been to memento mall, I feared the compulsive hoarders that surrounded me. So I crackberried my sis and had her order me two of them.

They arrived in time for my birthday. I went to put them together though and found that one was missing THE screw that held it together. It's okay - I set the other one up and set a Google Task to call about the second one. I finally crossed that off the list last week and sent an email.

The next day, I get a response from Johnna, who apologizes profusely, and says she looked for that part, and since they didn't have one in stock, was going to replace the one I had. She signed her email "Blessings."

Now that, my friends, is a blessing.

Thank you Dayspring, for my cool card holder I will use in the craft fair I bought them for, and thanks Johnna for being a blessing.

Okay - now that you are done with your brainz, MY LITTLE WEREWOLF IS GOING TO EAT THEM... LOOK HOW HE ALREADY LICKED THESE LITTLE SKULLZ CLEAN. MWAAHHHAAA.



Stamps: Doodle Factory Costume Party Ink: Basic Black Paper: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Grey
Accessories:
1" Circle Punch, Green Copic, White Gel Pen, Red Uniball Pen

This is the new Doodle Factory Costume Party Set and I made it with some presents sent to me by the WORLD'S SWEETEST WOMAN - Lisa, of Papergrace. I am serious - she's crazy sweet. She sent me this crazy big box of rare and prized goodies, including the new Basic Grey Eerie, Indian Summer, which I felt like putting in the freezer and hoarding FOREVER, and OH - the Graphic 45. Wow. So I thought I would put it to use with a little gory Halloween action.

To make the moon, FYI - I punched it out of Basic Grey, and then just cut around the tree design to slip it behind.

Hope ur brainz are tasty. :)

  1. Oh, this card is just too cute!

    At the Conv I attended, I sat on the floor in the back at several classes, myself! Lots of us doing that.

    And I LOVE that card holder! I might have to hoard one or two myself - one for the coffee shop that sells my cards ... one for ....

    WV: inillec. It does not take a lot of innilec to see that is a FAB card.
