A confession...

I'm addicted to the dollar bin.  Whether it's Target, Joann's or Michael's I'm a total sucker.  The good thing about the dollar bin is that I usually use what I buy there at least once, so I guess I'm at least getting my money out of it, right?  My last trip to Joann's I picked up a couple of dollar stamps and also a package of square pink note cards.  The note cards had a white heart printed on the bottom right hand corner but I knew I could easily cover that up!  Last night I went downstairs and used one of the note cards and one of the stamps and came up with this:

I'm loving how this card turned out.  I'm going to send it off to one of my grandma's and I know she'll love it because of the lace and pearls.  She's "fixy" like that.  :)

We've made it through the blizzard, it's hard to tell exactly how much snow we got because the drifting was so bad.  Mike went out to help the neighbors shovel last night and he said we had 3-4 foot drifts in the front yard.  I-70 is the main highway that runs across Missouri and they closed the WHOLE highway down about 4PM yesterday because of whiteouts.  It was complete craziness.  I'm so grateful we were home together and all my friends and family were home safe as well.  This storm covered 33 states so I hope all of you out there that were involved are okay too.

I hope you have a safe and happy Wednesday.  Thanks for popping over today!!


  1. so glad your family made it through the storm. We had over an inch of ice yesterday, but the weather was crazy--i work a half hour south and they really didnt get anything--just rain all day. where i live there is no power etc. all the schools are closed but where i work it is open so i thankfully my daycare had heat and electricity so they are there safe and sound with heat!! they are actually better off than at home--let's hope it is an early spring!!!

    cute card!!!

  2. I love this card, so cute! I have a confession too... I have the exact same addiction :0) Maybe we should start a group, lol. Glad to hear you made it through the storm. Not too much snow here in Colorado, just 0 temps the last few days so no school. Hopefully back in tomorrow though. Hope you are staying warm and Happy Wednesday to you!!!

  3. Pretty card! And who could resist a bargain? I know I can't!

  4. Cute card! I love the $ bin too, especially for shaped glitters, seasonal sequins, etc.

  5. Holy cow....what a storm you've had! Makes me grateful to live in the desert! ;)

    Love your card too, and I also love the dollar bin!! :D

  6. Hello, My name is Tracy and I am addicted to the dollar bins, lol.
    Unfortunatly I don't have a Joanns or Target here :(
    Love your cards so cute.
    I would say stay inside, create and just make the most of it. That is a lot of white stuff, you can keep it, teehee

  7. Ha! I am right there with you! I am always stalking the dollar stuff at Michael's and Jo-Ann's. It's usually great for card making! This card is so cute!
