New cards!! Yea!!

Today started with a trip to Hobby Lobby w/Mom! Oh how I love to go to HL!! They had all Xyron products at 50% off, but off course they were out of everything I wanted! BUT they did have paper 50% off and all Paper Studio Spare Parts too!! I also received my label maker tape order yesterday!! I have been out for over a  month & keep forgetting to order some! I had alot of labeling to catch up on!

AND I actually had time to make a few cards!! Super quick, super simple cards!

This first one is some of the new paper stack & ribbon I bought today. The ribbon is the PS Spare Parts and comes with 5 different colors of this scrumptious ribbon! $4.99 & 1/2 off...SCORE!!
The next one happened because I was looking through all my new embossing folders that I needed to label & I found this one...I had never even used it before! Shameful! LOL!!
A friend of mine went to Michael's last week & picked up some of the pre-made cards in the dollar section for me..the card above & the next card both use those for bases...and this one I also used the Fabulous Phrases set from My Pink Stamper (LOVE her stamps!!). The stamp actually says "Happy Belated Birthday" but I just inked up the "Happy" & "Birthday" separately! Added some flowers & a cute button brad (which kinda looks yellow in the pic but it's actually lime green), also from HL today...matches the ribbon I got perfectly!!
So today was a great crafting for the rest...not so much!! My van is down, over-heating real bad, & then Hubby comes home & says his fuel pump is out in his truck...AGAIN!! UGH!! What is up with car repairs this summer?? But Mom & Justin (my brother) came over for dinner & we had a wonderful time!! Laughing, talking & just chillin out! Just what I needed after all the bad car news today!!

Anyway, tomorrow is another day & I am sure it will be better!! After all, it's Friday!! TGIF!

Oh & one more quick note...I realized today was a special day for Hubby & I...26 years ago tonight we started dating! Wow time flies...when you're having fun! ;-)

Until next time....
