The best part of having to drive 3 1/2 hours into the office is...

that I can also manage to work in stops at some scrapbook stores I rarely get to visit!! Went to ARCHIVER'S today - wow, that is some store! I got some SIZZIX Textured Impression embossing folders, and a couple of packages of UNITY Stamps...and their special to get a Tim Holtz bag with purchase of $30 or more was extended...and of course, no question that I met THAT qualification!!

I'm hoping to go by Lone Star Scrapbooking on my way home tomorrow afternoon...they have a 40% off any item thing going on so if nothing else I plan to check out their Spellbinders, which you know I love...they usually have a pretty good selection!

Still, glad I don't have to do this too often...just got done revising my presentation I have to give tomorrow(if you'd all be so kind as to send some good vibes my way around 10...that they don't ask me something I can't give a good answer for...thankyouverymuch!!)

All for now - I'd better get to bed or I'll fall asleep halfway thru the presentation, can't have that!

Sunday stuff...

Another gorgeous Sunday here, and I think the cold front we've been hearing about on the news is on its way at can feel just a hint of it in the breeze today.   I want it to take a little time getting here, so that it can keep TS Matthew away from us, but I am SOOO ready for cooler weather and less humidity!
   Just had to call the A/C guy - compressor finally bit the dust in the upstairs A/C...he warned us about a year and a half ago it was going...
   Wanted to share a card I made for a friend's birthday, very simple...we are going for cake and ice cream later today!

I used the Tonic cupcake punch, and an EK Success border punch, with papers from the "Chick-a-Dee" pad by SEI - LOVE this paper pack!!!

And look at my new Spellbinders stash - Beaded Ovals and Eyelet Circles FINALLY arrived.  Plus I ordered Ribbon Tag Trio 2, and picked up Fleur De Lis a few weeks ago with a HL 40% off coupon! Can't wait to play with these.
