Give Thanks

Hello! So apparently my fortune cookie lied. I didn't make anything Friday, lol. Well, I did color the apples on this card, but that's it. In case your wondering what the heck I'm talking about, I posted a picture in my last post of my fortune cookie. It said "On Friday your creative side will shine forth with exceptional ideas". Maybe it meant next Friday =).

Oh, hey! Did you notice the blogger bar at the top of my screen is gone?! I came across THIS blog the other day that had the directions for doing it. It's very simple! I think it looks much better without it. You have to go to blogger.com to get to your dashboard though. I've been thinking of ways to make my blog look better. I'm getting tired of looking at the same banner and colors, but I can't for the life of me decide what colors I want to change to. I've got lots of favorite color combos, but some of them just don't look right outside of paper. I'm thinking maybe browns and blues, but I don't know. Any suggestions?

-Stamps-Give Thanks, and Inkadinkado thinking of you
-Paper-Whisper White and Old Olive cardstock; Summer Picnic DSP and watercolor paper
-Ink-Stazon, Old Olive-Markers-Close to Cocoa, Summer Sun, Real Red, Going Gray, Old Olive and Bashful Blue
-Accessories-Aqua Painter, Styled Silver HPH, Bashful Blue Ribbon

I like the colors, but maybe put a backing behind the white card base, like a mat.
