A Little Bird Told Me...Go to Jo-Ann's

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends,

Hope you are enjoying your week so far. The storm has finally passed over Florida and all is well here. Lots of rain, but we were very fortunate not to have any damage or flooding.

Since there was not much opportunity to get outside, I was able to get a little crafting done. I started working on my birthday cards for school. I want to have a collection for the teachers and my class before school starts in August.

Here is my project for today...

Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge ~ bird (p. 23) cut at 1 3/4", front sentiment (p. 39) cut at 2", and inside sentiment (p. 22) cut at 4 1/2"
My Mind's Eye paper ~ Dwell stack
kraft paper
pink and white ribbon
wiggly eyes


Did Anyone Tell You?
Jo-Ann's is having a sale! All their red ticket items are another 50% off. I got all this for $20. Yes, a Cricut cartridge ($7.48), Cuttlebug embossing folder ($1.48), 2 Zig glue pens ($1.48 - 1.98), buttons, and ribbon (.25 - .50), 50 card bases with envelopes ($1.97), 12 X 12 cardstock (.05), and black and white cardstock (.98). I am hoping to visit another one tomorrow to see what they might have.

If you sure to share what you get!

If you haven't stopped by for my 2nd Blogoversary, please do! Lots of prizes and I am thinking about adding more after another trip to Joanns! The deadline is next Thursday, July 5th.
One other chance for some goodies is the 6 Months 'til Christmas hop. There is still one more day before the winner is announced.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the new Creative Cutter Room challenge.
