It's Just You & Me

Today has been a very good day. This morning I went to Joanns and purchased some paper stacks on clearance for a marvelous price and then drove over to Michaels (There were no more $9.99 cartridges, but I really didn't expect to find any.). I found a great deal on a Martha Stewart Heart edge punch set and some embellishments that I am planning to use as blog candy for upcoming hops. Maybe you saw the cute picture on the right sidebar. A Sweetheart Blog Hop coming February 5th. I am looking forward to hosting the event which put me in the mood to think of my sweetie. Can you see us? We are the pair of squirrels smootching under the lover's tree. : )

I also created this card for 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge ~ Metal and Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Something New. I have these heart brads that I got at Hobby Lobby for 50% off and I wanted to find a way to use them. What do you think? I think they fit perfectly in the tree.

  14. Love, Love, Love the way you used your heart brads and they work so perfectly with the paper you chose. Thank you so much for sharing your cute creation with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.

  15. Hi Coach,
    I love what you do for the kids, you are such a great inspiration for others, and the cards are so cute. I also live in S Sarasota Fl, and went last week to the Michaels where I live thinking I'd be able to get some carts and was the first one there and the clerk was waiting to go in and said that the managers were told to put the $69.99 out on Tuesday prior to Sunday's ad. So those of us who are regular shoppers and and wait for the paper missed out. I also feel it was like some sort of family, friends secret. Also Walmart and Joanns won't match it either. Quite disapointing, YES! to say the lease! Another ad came out 1/17 stating another $9.99 sale. None of those are anywhere to be found from Manatee - Fort Myers, and I see to your area, I think Provo Craft should know that this is false advertisment on both ends! I have posted it on my blog. bearcubscraproom bolgspot thanks ginny

  16. This is a great card, love the way you used the heart brads and the papers are beautiful.
