Button Heart......

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!!! I gotta tell ya some good news!
I did secure the other building for my Store! YEAHHH! I'm so excited!
We went down to Moab on Saturday to check out the thrift store they
have down there.... They actually have 2 locations, 1 for their clothes,
the other for all the other items they sell! Well they are also a much bigger
city than us so I can see why they have 2 different locations for all their stuff!
But I wanted to see the layout of the place and see what they're using to
hold/store the items they get in..... And all I can say is WOW! I got some
great ideas for my store! I mean some things I seen in their store
was exactly what I was thinkin' about, so it made me feel better
knowing they had that same idea... Since it was a "Business Trip"
we went to a nice restaurant and had a "Business Lunch" too! My son
was bored listening to me talk to my Hubby & Mom about changing
some prices and the layout of the new location... I told him he was getting
a nice lunch out of it but once he ate he really didn't care! LOL
It turned out to be a really nice day and I came home and started
shopping online for items to go into my new location... Since I'm
"stuck" where I'm at until June... I thought now would be a good time
to start ordering new clothing racks and shelves and such so when
it's time to move it'll be an easier transition for us! That's my plan
anyway... and since I'm pretty good at planning and organizing I think
things will work out great! I'm gonna start moving in on June 1st while
I'm still at the other location.... that should give me 30 days to get
both places in shape for another "Grand Opening"!
I guess I should talk about my project for today instead of talking
about my crazy business life! LOL Here's my Card! :o)

I created this while at the store... It's been a really slow week!
Here's how I made it:

Card stock - Stampin' Up, Bo Bunny, Georgia Pacific
Designer Paper - Pebbles Inc. (Loverly)
Ink - Stampin' Up
Sentiment - Word Program
Twine - My Craft Spot
Assorted Buttons - My Thrift Store :o)
Cartridge - Doodlecharms (Scallop Heart/Heart)
Cut @ 1.43 & 1.45 using my Gypsy

I putting this into the Challenges over at:
My Craft Spot - Valentine's
Fantabulous Cricut - Include a Heart on your project
Paper Playtime - Heart or Love Theme
My Sheri Crafts - At Least 2 Hearts on your project
Whimsical-Designs - Use something "OLD" on your project
(I used the Pebbles Inc. Designer Paper) I've had it for 3 yrs. and
never even thought about using it.... And the Cricut Doodlecharms
Cartridge... hardly ever take that out and use it either....
Well that's my sweet card for today! I'll be back
on Wednesday with another Valentine card!
I hope you all have an AWESOME DAY!!!
