Heavy-weight cardstock.
Why is it that those words can send my heart aflutter?
I am such a dork.
Lately, I have been fascinated by the design challenges that Minted.com has been hosting.
The designers are so talented, original, and fresh.
Oh, to be so talented.
Their current contest is the 'Real Simple 10th Year Celebration Design Challenge', in honor of Real Simple Magazine's 10th anniversary.
I'm telling you what...these cards are triple-dee-dipple fantastic!
The one below, is enough to make me want to plan
Jake and myself a stellar 10th wedding anniversary party in June.
What d'ya think?
A little too soon?
Yeah, I think so, too.
But, seriously, come on...
it would be fun.

And, while we're on the subject of talented paperie persons...
my friend, Tammy, just sent me a mock up of our Christmas card.
Don't laugh.
My OCD tells me I must have this little chore done by Halloween.
Yes, my OCD and I talk.
Quite often.
talk about knock my socks off!

And, because I like you...
I'll give you a quick sneaky-peaky of one part of the total package.
Feast your eyes...
