4 days till the weekend, but who's counting : )

Me!!  I think I'm always counting the days till the weekend-lol!!  This weekend is my brother & sister-in-law's baby shower....our type of baby shower, that is : )   Ours isn't limited to only females & there are  no games....sounds like a pretty good time, huh?!!!   I've still got a couple things to finish up & a couple little things left to buy...I would say mom & I are doing pretty good on the prep work...mom...hope you agree : )   So needless to say, I'm looking forward to my weekend, already : )

I have to admit I did a little scrap shopping yesterday!!  My mother-in-law gave me a gift card to Joann's for my b-day & it was just burning a hole in my pocket-lol.   Joann's does have some great sales this week, just about ALL of their scrapping supplies are 40% off...plus I went on google & typed in Joann's coupon & found a 20% off total order including sales.  Finding that coupon took me 5 minutes & it saved over $6-woohoo!!!  I really needed some adhesive tabs.  Not sure what everyone else uses to adhere their cards together, but I love the boxed double sided tabbies.  Believe it or not I used to get them for our Dollar General Stores, box of 250 for $1....they discontinued them & I know I will never find them that cheap again.  I refuse to buy them at the craft stores unless they are on sale or w/a coupon...it usually works out to a little more then $1 for 250...gotta do what I gotta do....can't make cards w/out them!!!

I'm not 100% sure of my thoughts on this card...it was a lot different in my head : )  My cupcake is from Best Creation Inc., great 12 x 12 sheet of cut outs...though you have to cut them-lol!!   I think you might be able to feel my love for polka dots on this card : )

Have a bright sunny Tuesday!!  TFL! Lynn


  1. Yay!! This weekend is going to be so much fun, and all of your hard work is going to pay off! Very cool about finding the extra coupon. Boxed double side tabbies? I'm not sure what those are. Generally I use the Scotch adhesive dot roller or glue dots, depending on what I'm adhering. I think your card is adorable...it would be perfect for a boy. Good thing, since you'll have to start stocking up on boy birthday cards!! =D I LOVE that ribbon... =D

    Have a great day!

  2. Oh Lynn...you are too funny but I love the way you think! I'm not sure what double sided tabbies are but sounds like you got a great deal! I use a ATG and get the refills on line for $3something for 36 yards and usually order 24-36 at a time to make the shipping worth it. This card is adorable. The colors and papers are beautiful together and oooh the ribbon matches perfectly!

  3. this is adorable, I am always counting down to the weekend too, hope your week is great!

    enjoy *~*
