Thank You Card Number Four Plus A Major Bargain

The fourth thank you
card begun here in this post using an amazing imagine from the Graphics Fairy.

My life seems to be busier
than normal for January, so I haven't gotten too much accomplished as far as creating goes. I have another signature nearly done in my Scrappin in the Smokies mini album that I should post this week.
The Penmaker and I took
a quick trip over to Pittsburgh last night to pick up a couple of things at Ikea for our kitchen redo. On the way back we swung into Joanns. I had gotten an interesting coupon from them via e-mail that I thought looked to good to pass up. As it turned out, it definitely was. The coupon read $5 off your purchase of $5 including sale items. Now I've had numerous coupons from craft stores that didn't live up to the promises they made, so I was skeptical about this one. I went straight to the aisle with the papers and low and behold... the 69¢ cardstock was on sale for 5 sheets for a $1.00. I counted out 25 of those beauties in the most gorgeous shades of blues, reds and pinks. Now for the big test... the Penmaker said to the sales person "will this coupon work on this paper" to which he replied, "I'll ring it up and see"... which he did, and announced, "you don't owe me anything!" He handed me the bag containing my treasures, and the Penmaker and I headed for the car grinning from ear to ear.  
The register receipt reads... Total Savings $17.25. I just might keep it as a reminder.
Life is good! 

Thanks for stopping by!
