Oooh, It's a Ramble

Ok, so this is how bad things have gotten. This week in the mail, we got that 50% coupon from Michael's. Shawn, that big ol' sweetheart, saw it & saved it for me. Of course, he had to point out that he saved it for me, "See what I did, thinking about you, girl," with that big adorable grin on his face. Yeah, I had seen it, but was thinking, what in the heck would I get with that thing? See, Michael's will put things you wanna get on sale when they have these things. And, you can't get Cricut stuff with them. And, they never have any new Cuttlebug stuff. And, I have pretty much all the stuff I need from there. And, they don't have stickles or copics or anything I want to stare at & touch in real life before I buy it. {Stephanie, I can hear you laughing at me again} *sigh* I know it sounds silly, but I was really stumped. They did have this really cool desk caddy, but I just got that black one from Pampered Chef. Actually, 2. Got one for the kitchen, too. Love it. Oh, and that big, white embellishment center that hangs on the wall. It's really cool, but I don't really have room for that (unless someone wanted to redo my work space *hint*hint*). Oh, so the point was, even tho I didn't know what to do with it, Michael's little marketing ploy worked and I went over and was there for 45 minutes, people. Oh, so sad. I ended up getting a book. Shawn thought that was truly the sad part. But no, I got The Ultimate Paper Crafts Collection. You know, Paper Crafts, the magazine Nichole was at before she decided Papertrey needed her full attention. And the card I made was a CASE of a card I saw in the book. Wow, finally, the point. phew!

Stamps: Piece of Cake, Women of Life (Papertrey), Ink: Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa (SU!), Paper: Papertrey white, Close to Cocoa, Berry Bliss DSP (SU!), regular old vellum, Accessories: brads (MM), Stickles

Hey, at least you GET the 50% off coupon. BUT, it seems like canvases are 30% off. Glad I didn't buy them last week!
Oh, yeah, really like the card!
