Valentine Candy Challenge & Another Bargain

I made a card last night for Marlou's Valentine Candy Challenge.

The card front is Cuttlebugged and ticket punched, and I added Stickles to the corners. Ribbon from Hobby Lobby is tied around the card front. The XOX heart is an embossed design that I've have for such a long time. I think it's by We R Memory Keepers. The "LOVE" sticker is from a sheet of Doodlebug cardstock stickers that I've also had for a long time. Using what I have! Love it!

Now, just the opposite of "using what I have" is buying something new. My girls both needed shoes, and we found ourselves in a Payless Shoe Source yesterday which just so happens to be right next door to Archiver's. I had to stop in to take a peak, didn't I? Well, they have had a stash of Primas sitting on a shelf for 25% off for a very long time. Even at 25% off, Primas are really expensive! When I went in yesterday, I noticed that all of those Primas had been further reduced to 50% off. How could I refuse? That's buy one, get one free! I'll just look at it that I got myself some flowers for an early Valentine's Day gift! Right?

Thanks for stopping by!
