A Spring-Out Thank You and Blog Candy Hint

Made a card today! :)

It's been a few days of hard work to get my life back in "order" after my vaca.
I'm really using the word "order" loosely there. And no I will not take pictures of my house right now so you can see HOW loosely I'm using it. :)

I will, however, show you pictures of my card.

It's a Spring-Out card. They showed us this technique at convention.
You take a punched circle and cut into it in a spiral pattern. Then you adhere one end of the spiral to one side of the inside of the card and the other end of the spiral to the other side of the inside of the card. Have I confused you enough?
Well, here's the inside of my card for a visual.
I know. I could die too.
I love this technique. It's a rarity for me to make the inside of a card look all pretty 'cause when I spend so much time on the's just nice to be happy and done. Know what I mean?

Anyway, you just decorate those spiral how you'd like and when you close it, the card lays flat (ish) again.
By the way, the little envelope that my cutie sock monkey (new set in the catty) is holding is the up and coming Scallop Envelope Bigz Die that goes into the Stampin' Up Big Shot.
It's a cute die cut that is cut and even scored for you with a darling scallop paper piercing on the flap border. Love it!
Do tell me what you think.

One last thing: I'm getting so close to 25K hits! Be looking forward to it because (blog candy hint alert!) at 25K something spidy your way comes! Can you guess what it is? :)

That would be lots of fun. I am still waiting for my order to arrive. I think that it will come while i am away for a week. I could just die!
