Mother's Day

I told my husband it wasn't necessary for him to get me a gift card for Mother's Day from Joann's (as he has generously done many times before for birthdays and other celebrations).  After all, I do have tons of paper crafting supplies that I could probably never use up from now until the day I die!  Not to be morbid, but I'm sure many of you are nodding your head yes right now, knowing exactly what I mean!

So my hubby sent this beautiful flower arrangement to me at my office this week!  Wasn't that sweet?  He knows how much I love to get flowers.

BUT, I went out to do some shopping today, and since I haven't been to my local Joann's for quite sometime, I just had to stop in and see if they had anything new.  Their Cricut accessories were on sale so I bought these Cuttlebug embossing folders that I've never seen before!

This is Cross My Heart, 5x7

This one is called Charles, A2 size.

And this one is Hugs & Kisses, A2 also.

I also bought a pack of Cricut mats (always good to get on sale for $9.00), along with some foam squares and refill tape for my ATG gun, which wasn't on sale, but I used a 40% coupon on that.  And look at these cute $1.00 stamps.  These were something I've never seen before either.

Certainly no competition for PK stamps, but I thought they were cute for only $1.00!  I just had to have them.  And I also had a $5 coupon to use on $25.00 or more in purchases. I love bargains!!  Guess I really am a shop-aholic!

The artificial flower bunches were also on sale for 60% off.  So tomorrow, I will visit the cemetery and put these flowers on my mother's grave and wish her a Happy Mother's Day.  She died in a car accident when I was only 18.  

Thankfully, I have a wonderful daughter who I will be missing tomorrow since she moved out of state at the beginning of this year.  But we'll be together via Face Time on our phones.

Wishing all my crafty friends a very
