Dollar Spot Treasures

If you don't live near a Target store I'm not sure if I'm happy for you, or feel terribly sorry for you. I call it my "happy place." Unfortunately, my happy place can be a very expensive place. I swear to you, I can wander aimlessly around that store for hours, looking, touching, smelling. And with the addition of the dollar spot in the last couple of years-DARN THEM. I can drop $20 in the dollar spot, no problem. Case in point, look what I found there this week. I've bought scrapbooking stuff there before, but this stuff was particularly eye catching. All the pretty Valentine paper, matching ribbon, brads, and glitter glue. And look at those adorable flower brads that match the other paper. And I didn't even take a picture of the 10 tin mailboxes I bought that were all the rage last year. I have my own idea for that in coming weeks. Plus I don't mind letting the boys do there own cards and projects with this stuff. (Isn't that awful that I hoard the "good stuff" from my children. Bad mommy, bad mommy.)
Here's my very quick card I made with my new supplies. The stamped heart is from a new level 3 hostess set called Time Well Spent. Oh...and...the little faux brads are metal self adhesive dots that I bought in the JoAnn Fabrics dollar section.
Have a happy Friday. Could you Florida girls send a little sunshine here, I haven't seen the sun for about a week now, and I'm feelin' a little "postal". (Thus explains my shopping spree's, looking for pretty things.)

This card is great know what you mean about their $ spot, but you need to check out the clearance items they have in the "crafting" area, I bought a pack of paper for .98 cents it was on clearance, 32 sheets of 4x6 it was Marcel brand. OK, look out your window, sending you some sunshine now.

I can totally relate! When I'm in Target, I go through the ritual of picking up all the things I want and putting them in the basket but before I check out, I'll actually go back and return 3/4 of them. I do this all the time! I did buy the brads and two stacks of scrapbook paper.

Your card came out very nice. It's a very sweet Valentines card.
