My shoebox swap... And more ramblings...

Happy Friday.... At least it's not Freaky Friday.. LOL.. Is everyone ready for Halloween??? Not me.. My fool proof plan for not eating all of the Halloween candy before Halloween is to buy it at the last minute.. So tonight... I'm off to hunt down Halloween candy..

Last Friday I woke up in a panic.. I hated my
Shoebox Swap.. So I emailed Teresa back and forth..Do I switch.. Do I not.. DO I switch.. (You get the picture).. My delima was that it wasn't Stampin' Up.. So at the last minute. I switched.. Please dear God.. Please let them like this one..
I really wanted to do something with the new Basic Grey. I love this color. I just have difficulty matching it with other colors.. This is what I came up with...
Card Stock... Basic Grey, Sage Shadow, Buckaroo Blue, Very Vanilla
Stamp set.. Fabulous Flowers, En' Francis and All Holiday's
Ink... Basic Grey & Sage Shadow
Ribbon... Blue double stitched..
Accessories.. Paper Punch, Hodgepodge Hardware, Pop up glue dots, glue, glitter...
As a side note.. the gal's were sad they weren't playing with the House Mouse.. Oh, don't get me wrong.. They were very happy with this card.. But they were sad they missed out on the House Mouse..
On a lighter note.. Have you ever walked into a store and felt like you died and went to heaven? That was me Wednesday when I walked into TJ Maxx. Anyone who knows me knows that I love anything primitive.. Check out the two different holiday garland's I found..
This one is snowmen and the other is angels. Both are about 6 feet long and I just had to have them. Guess how much they were... $9.99 each.. Yep.. I died and went to heaven...

This one is the angels..
Hope everyone has a stampalicious weekend. The weather is calling for rain, rain, rain so I think I'll spend tomorrow in the kitchen. Now that I have the extra freezer I think I'll make a batch of broccoli cheddar bacon soup and split pea with ham. A couple nice smooth soups for when I have my oral surgery in a couple weeks.. YACK..

Hey - I have one of those cards :) It was my birthday card and it's beautiful! I showed it off to my sister last night and she fell in love with it too! Great find at TJ's.
