Time to Shop!

So it was another BORING day sitting at home getting well. I'm not used to doing NOTHING at all. Ok so I could have cleaned the house, done some laundry or cooked....but I chose to stamp instead...haha!
I am feeling a bit better today. Not coughing or blowing my nose half as much. I had to run out to the grocery store today and the lady at the checkout asked if I was auditioning for Rudolph....guess my nose IS a little red ;)
Last week I received this My Favorite Things Stamp set from Paper Pretties in the mail. I am sooooooooo loving this image! It will see a lot of ink!
I used some of the Basic Grey Two Scoops DP along with Certainly Celery, Soft Sky,WW and Confetti cardstock. The yummy ribbon is some that I received from Paper Pretties as well. It's gorgeous isn't it??!! I added some dollar store bling to the ribbon and the sentiment.
I LOVE how this card turned out! Can I say that? LOL...sounds funny!
My very good friend, Michelle, sent me a HUGE box of goodies from Target last week. She included some pink and some red mailboxes AND some of these really cool blue wintery tin houses. Can't wait to alter those babies!
I decided to pull out some DP that Brian had picked up at Costco and cover a pink mailbox and make a little card. I'm going to stuff it with some little sweet treats and drop it to a friend I haven't seen in months! It's so fun to surprise someone, isn't it?!
Thanks for stopping by today!
