on a mission...

I wake up on Sunday morning ready. I slip outside to pick up the paper which is tucked inside a damp plastic bag and dash back inside. Time to clear off the table and spill out the adds...now to begin my search. I clip, snip and pluck coupons from each booklet which is on my list, made the night before, and rush to get out the door. The excitement builds, and usually I take an accomplice...this week my six year old...and weave my way through the aisles with coupons in hand. Once the hunt for the products is complete I make my way to the front of the store. This is where I get nervous....why I am not sure, but maybe they will say "ma'am, you have too many coupons and are getting too much off...step away from the cart and exit the store". Ok a little dramatic, but I have always had a fear of getting cornered...someone pointing the finger at me and saying "don't do that". Another successful trip later, I have survived and now to relax and know that I made it through one more week of deals. Ahhh...a sigh of relief. My husband is excited now about what I get and no questions asked. Again, if you haven't hopped over to www.mylitterofsix.blogspot.com you need to.

Now that my mind is clear so many things to get to today.
When I first received the assignment for this weeks 365 Cards challenge I immediately was reminded of a card I saw in my mother's scrapbook from the 60's and 70's of a little girl. There is something about this stamp, from Sparkle Creations, that is vintage inspired. Went with a smaller card this week, approximately 4", to show off the image a little more since it is just so adorable! Make sure to stop by the blog to enter today's challenge and see more inspiration!
