Hi Everyone!

I told you that last Sunday Marie, Robbie and Jeanne gave me a surprise party.  In addition to the trip to California that my sisters are giving me, jewelry from Marie, and a Walker DVD from Robbie, my friends gave me all sorts of amazing gifts including a Vera Bradley wristlet and ID holder, shirts, papercrafting supplies, body lotions, a tulip plant, and gift cards to Panera, 2 Chinese restaurants, Michaels, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods and Absolutely Everything.

I put my gift cards in my wristlet and Janet and I went shopping at Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA.  Some of you have commented that you love to see what I buy on my shopping trips so in this second post of the day I will share what I bought today. 

Mushrooms fascinate me.  I don't like to eat them, but I love to create cards with them.  You know how much I love Lockhart stamps so today I added this one to my collection.

You know how much Robbie and I bond over owls so I had to get this sentiment stamp from Hero Arts to use with the many owl stamps I have.

When I first saw a card using these stamps from Technique Tuesday I knew I had to own them.  Diane ,I thought of you when I saw them.  Maybe we can use the sentiments in a shadow box or collage frame.

I saw this die used on a simple but adorable Easter card and decided it belonged in my stash.

I plan to use these stamps from Technique Tuesday on a card for Marie. 

I know that you cannot read the words on this die.  It says "Get Well".  Teri Anderson created a simple and adorable card with it at this link

That's what I bought today and I have money left on my card for another day. 

Having dinner with Sandy and Toni tonight.  Hope you are doing something fun too.
