I Love a Bargain


Hi there! I love to bargain shop. One of my favorite haunts is BigLots. I love it because you never know what you are going to find. Somedays there is nothing but other times you hit the jackpot! On one of my recent visits I found these great little clear flowers from Making Memories. They are part of the Garden Party collection. They are self adhesive and I scored 56 of them for a dollar! Yes, a buck. Regular price $3.99... so there a few seasons old, I don't care- they're awesome! Anyhow on to the rest of the card. I started with PTI plum pudding cardstock. I stamped it with versamark using Waltzingmouse stamps Off Beat Backgrounds; polka dot stamp. Next I cut a spring moss mat from a scrap. I stamped it with a sentiment, ground, and flower stems from Everyday Button Bits (PTI). I added my clear flowers, dew drops, and plum pudding buttons. Then I added some plum pudding swiss dot ribbon. I have a couple more cards following this same theme that I will put up later this week. Thanks for stopping in!

Wow, great use of a bargain! Your cards have just been super recently. I love this one and love the color combo. Those flowers just make the card and love that you mixed the dew drops and buttons for centers. Just love it all.

What a great find. I love BL too...I think it's because of the suprise element involved! I love the addition of buttons and that tiny dew drop. So pretty.

I love Big Lots, too. Always something to find in that store, but I find it always kinda smells in there. LOL! I love the card, the color combo is great and I adore the polka dots!
