Hot Cocoa Card

So here is the Hot Cocoa card that I made for my niece. I really love how it came out and it was so fun to make. I used my cricut and and svg file with SCAL. (look that program). I found the packets of hot chocolate mix at Wal-Mart. The snowflake on the front has Stickles on it to make it sparkly.

I also picked up this great Penguin stamp at Joann's for a $1.00 over the weekend. I collect Penguins so I couldn't pass it up. Just a simple little winter card to send with a package that I have for my sister. Foe some reason your can't see the snowflakes that I stamped as a background in white chalk.

Black Friday

Wow!! It's already been a week since I was here. Time is just flying by. Hopefully everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I know that my family and I did. My daughters and I hit the midnight sale at our local outlet mall. Was a little disappointed this year, we usually find some great things but not so much this year.

On Friday hubby and I headed to Reno to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had a wonderful time. Our daughters gave us as a gift a great suite at a hotel/spa/casino in Reno and concert tickets to Trans Siberia Orchestra. If you ever have the chance to go and see them in concert I highly recommend it. It was a great way to start off the holiday season. Here is their website: http://www.trans-siberian.com/

But while we were in Reno, hubby and I did get to do some shopping for ourselves. He went to Shepler's where I talked him into almost a whole new wardrobe. Then off to my favorite scrapbook store there called Treasured Memories. And it just so happened that we were there at the right time. They were giving you 20% off your entire purchase for Black Friday. Plus the gal gave me another 10% for being out of state.....whoo hooo!!!

Here is the haul that I came home with:

The best part of the sale were the basket full of random things for a $1.00 each. Boy did I score there by stocking up on these:

$15.00 dollars worth of replacement blades for $3.00 Yippeee!!

This is my favorite craft knife and it is so nice to be stocked on blades for it.

I am working on the cutest Hot Chocolate card and hope to finish it this weekend to share. I also need to make some nice Thank You cards. We are expecting rain on Sunday and I can't wait to have the whole day in my scrap room.
