5 for $5

Well, needless to say it has been a while!!  Thankfully this is not my first time crafting in over a year, but rather just my first post in over a year!  Much much has happened (buying a house, getting two dogs, replacing the roof on the house, etc.) but I will go into that more later!

Here it is!  The 5 for $5 Challenge at Moxie Fab World :

All the cards are 4.25 x 5.5.  

Here is what I got for $5:

       - 2 8.5 x 11 purple canvas texture cardstock by core'dinations (25 cents ea on clearance) $ 0.50
       - 1 12 x12 purple flower cardstock by me and my big idea (on clearance) $0.50
       - 1 12 x 12 blue embossed butterfly paper by core'dinations (you guessed it, on clearance!) $0.50
       - 1 stamp set by studio g (one dollar bin with 40% off coupon) $0.60
       - 1 sticker sheet by studio 112 (dollar bin!) $1
       - 1 die cut borders by studio 112 (dollar bin again) $1
           Total:                                                  $4.10 (it was $4.33 with tax)

(all from JoAnn's)  

What a fun challenge!  I was so excited when I saw it last week but wasn't able to get around to it until tonight!  Props to my favorite person ever, my husband, for being a good sport when I dragged him to the craft store after a long day of classes and gave great advice while helping me hunt down the sales.

Have a great day!!



  1. Welcome back :) Talk about jumping back in with bang - love this set of cards, and nice hubby. Mine would rather chew off his own leg than go into the craft store!

  2. Hey Brittany! Thanks for linking this up to the 5 for $5 Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
