CPS #185

Greetings, folks! I hope that your weekend is ending on a good note. Today, I
  • went to the grocery store
  • gassed up my car
  • went to the hardware store to get some nuts and bolts for my display board (the incompetent online store didn't send me enough. Now, I'm not trying to be mean when I say that they were incompetent. They were. The evidence is here, here, and here.)
  • made another batch of pizza casserole because I needed to use some peppers and mushrooms that were in the fridge
  • took a nap
Oh, before I forget, I watched Monsters vs. Aliens and Revolutionary Road this weekend. RR was very ho-hum. Unhappy couple, living in suburbia. Blah blah. It didn't even have a happy ending. I dunno why I forced myself to watch the whole thing. :P Monsters vs. Aliens was definitely better.

I forgot to mention something that I thought was amusing with Robyn's move-in yesterday. She had one friend from each phase of school: undergrad, Master's, and law school to help her move in. Hooray for a team effort.

After helping Robyn move in yesterday, I wandered over to A.C.Moore. Hey, it was on the way home. I had about $12 left over from the $50 that I won a few weeks back, so I decided to spend it on a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder (40% off coupon) and a flower Cuttlebug Die set that was on clearance (regular price $17.99, clearance price: 9.00. Mwah ha ha ha!). Ok, really, note to self: NO MORE CRAFT SHOPPING UNTIL YOU MAKE SOME MONEY FROM CRAFT SHOWS. I have to hang on until mid-October. The trick will be to just not go to the stores.


Today's card was inspired by CPS sketch #185. I was excited to use some of the chipboard elements that Meg gave me for my birthday this year. A good ol' popsicle. I also dug out some buttons that I hadn't used in a while too. I noticed that I've been using a lot of that yellow color lately. I think it's because the bright color really does make for cheerful cards.

Way to go on the supplies lottery, that something I find hard to turn down. I saw your post on the Etsy forum for blogging and wish you luck on this one, it looks great!
