thursday ramblings...

Happy Thursday...
I was busy all day yesterday with Ashley, we had a fun time together. She needed a Christmas tree, so we looked at a few places and ended up at Joann's (if you are in the market for an artificial tree, they are 50% off this week). She scored with a tree and ornaments for under $60. We then went to JCPenney (since I found an old gift card in my wallet the other day...I like to hoard my gift cards...I know it is a problem...but it was a nice surprise *smile*), and they were having a door-buster sale...I love a SALE!!!!! I also had a coupon for $10 off any purchase of $10 or more, a $20 gift card...I came out of there with 2 sweaters and a necklace and only had to kick in $6~AWESOME! I did also get a few items on my Christmas I felt pretty productive.

I needed a sympathy card this week for someone at church who lost her mother. I really do not enjoy making sympathy cards! For this one I used some iridescent ice embossing powder to emboss the flower image on black is prettier irl!

I was thrilled to get some happy mail yesterday!!!! I ordered a few books from some of Amazon's used book sellers and scored big!!!! I paid $1.99 for 2 of the books and $4.99 for the other! I cannot wait to have some free time to flip through them.

Enjoy today!
