hello sunshine...


Well, I definitely had a very successful day shopping yesterday.  I actually did some pre-shopping before meeting up with my friends at 10:15, went to a Ben Franklin store:)  Then the girls and I shopped and had a ton of fun until I left at 4:15...they were still shopping but I had already overspent my budget {who am I kidding, I can't window shop!}:

Impress
Paper Source
Nordstrom
Gap
Lucky Brand

...need I say more?

Anywho's, before leaving for shopping I managed to crank out 3 mini cards, they are 4x4:




Simple Stories and a smidge of Crate on the "life is good" card...

Super duper clean & crisp and perfect for the Wee Memories Challenge #82:



and also for the Young Crafters Unite Challenge #5...



I like to think I'm young at heart:)

Well, today is the day to put away all the Christmas decor...ugh, it's not much fun doing that, is it?

  5. Sounds like you did some serious shopping yesterday. I love the 3 little mini cards, I don't make those enough.
    I am having the same day as you today. Finally taking down the tree, although if hubby had his way it would be up another 2 weeks.
