A Good Day Shopping

Today was a gorgeous day from sun up till sun set.  Started the day off heading out on a beautiful day with temps around 70 which was nice after having a weekend of ice and cold.  First stop was AC Moore where I got some beads for 1.88, a couple of spellbinder dies for $10, some clearance items at an additional 40 % off the lowest ticket price, I got some acrylic albums for 60 cents, and a sander for like 3 and one cute little chick stamp.  We then went to Joann Fabrics where I got some Disney paper on clearance along with a few embellishments that were on sale too.  Next we went to Michaels and I really racked up there, all there clearance was an additional 70% off the lowest ticket price.
Went to Archivers and made some copies of a album, bought a couple of peices of paper, which was quite unusual for me as I love that store but was really good in there, figured my earlier bargains were enough.  AFter having lunch with my patient DH we then headed back home, but don't you know on the way home I decided Hobby Lobby was not there far out of the way so we head there where I got some more disney stuff on clearance.  Sure do  love those clearance items.  DH was quite pleased with going to Hobby Lobby as he found a few things that he liked too, he actually spent more than I did, so he can't complain with my shopping.
I also got a couple of Elves on a Shelf for $2, DD will love that when I tell her.  But after a great day of shopping and all those wonderful bargains my little doggies are barking so its off to bed, will have to play later.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my haul with me.

Just Because

This card was made with the background stamp from Justrite Heart Scroll Background stamp, I used the large fiskars stamp press which worked fantastic with this large stamp. I also cut the teddy bear from teddy bear parade cricut cartridge at 3.75 inches, used my stickles for alittle highlight on the wings and the yellow parts of the bee. Added alittle  bling, I also used a paper tape for the ribbon look at the bottom of the card.  Thanks for buzzing by today.

Marvelous Squares & Tuck & Fold

This card is a 5.5 x 7.5 card.  I used the spellbinder die marvelous squares along with the tuck & fold diamond cut.  I also added some heart gems along with rhinestones for alittle sparkle. Not my normal color choice either but I really like the tan and red.  I think using this color choice it makes the red really stand out. Hope you like.

Love Bears All

This card was made using the sizzix bear die, spellbinder die, and some valentine paper along with CTMH stamps.  Tring to make this year about using what I have instead of buying more.  So this was all done with my stash.  Also you will notice in the video the small Marth Stewart scoring board this was a gift from my dear friend Lorraine for christmas and I think I have used it more since Christmas than I have ever used my large one.  So if you make cards or would like a great travel scored board check this one out.  Thanks for stoppping by and just remember love bears all.

First Valentine

This card is a 5 x 7 card, the tree is done using the new spellbinder d-lites die that I got for christmas, I also use MS label to stamp image on, Stamp sentiment comes from the Cloud 9 design stamps Love Phrases, Cardstock already had a embossed image on it so that worked out great, ribbon, and the little hearts were punched using a Recollections punch. It felt great to be back crafting, I am also working on reorganizing my craft room so will be showing pictures as to how that is going too. 

Blogger was having some issues with pictures so I just did a quick video for the card to be shown.  Felt good to be back crafting now to just get my room organized so I can do more.  Thanks for being so patient with me while I was away.  Would love to here from all my followers, hoping everyone has a blessed and wonderful new year.
