What I've Been Up To This Weekend

Hey everyone! Did you have a good weekend? I hope so. I had a wonderful weekend. I got to spend some quality time with the hubby and just had a really good time. First, I'd like to share my card for one of our challenges at Cuttlebug Challenges Blogspot. Our challenge this Saturday was to weave. Here is a link to the challenge:


I've done some weaving before, but this was so fun. I would of never thought to emboss over the weaving! I also made my own fabric flower by using my friend Cristal's fabric flower tutorial. This is all new to me, but it was very easy and so fun!!! Here is my card:

Next, I did a few Valentine note cards to stick in with some packages that I mail out each month. These were all really simple and quick! Gotta love that!

Last, I just had to share with yall my deal of the century! LOL. While Brandon and I were out and about yesterday, we stopped by HobbyTown USA. Brandon is into the model train thing and wanted to go in and look. Well, the Salvation Army store is also in the same shopping center. We had never been in there, so decided to sneak a peek. I bought this table to use as a sewing table for $5.99!!!!!!! Can you believe that?! I was so excited all day! Now, it's straight out of the 70's and needs an 'Aymee' touch up, but that is what paint is for, right? So I am going to fix it up asap. But for now, here it is. I love it! It's really sturdy and has 7 dwarers. Perfect for me! So go dig in those stores ladies! You never know what you will find!!!

I hope all of you have a wonderful week! Take care! I'm off to scrap!
Pin It!

Wow! You got a great deal on the sewing table. You can either refinish it (depending on the wood) or just paint it a color you would want.....you go girl!

I so love your cards. I am going to have to try that woven card.

Once again...you do great work!
