"You Make My Heart Flutter"

Hi Peeps!  I must ask, "For those of you living on the Big Island, are you remembering to bring your recycle bags with you when you go shopping now that the new law went into effect last month?"  It's a new routine I need to make a "habit."   The other week, I went to Target and bought a pair of pants and a pkg. of treats for our pups.  You guessed it, when I got to the check-out, I realized I forgot to bring my bag AGAIN.   As I was walking out of the store with my items and receipt in hand, I followed a guy who also forgot his bag.   He bought underwear.  OMG, good thing I didn't buy underwear.  I would've put it back on the shelf/rack.  LOL. 

Here's a Valentine's card I'm giving to my hubby.  The image is by Penny Black and DP's by Doodlebug and American Crafts which I bought from an awesome garage sale I went to this past weekend....CHA-CHING, SCORE!!!  I also used a sentiment by Inkadinkado, Spellbinder dies (Label Eighteen), Distress Ink, Memory Box dies (Macarena Corners and Tiny Tendril), glittered borders by K & C Co., flower by Prima, ribbon by Offray, Glitz CS for leaves and corner die by Paper Accents, button from stash, carpet thread, and pearls by Hero Arts.

Here's a close-up.....

The card that you made for your hubby is so cute. I love everything about it- the sentiment, the layout of your card, the flower, the stamp of the mice, etc. The mice on the cards I assume are you and your hubby. My favorite are the mice and the sentiment. How romantic... both of you are sharing a nice drink together :) How will you and your hubby be celebrating Valentine's Day next week?

We need to bring bags to some of the stores here too. Good thing it's not to all the stores. I think it's only in one city locally that I know of. We keep forgetting to bring out own bags too. It would be too embarrassing to carry underwear out without a bag. Like you I would wait to purchase it. LOL!

Lovely card and so sparkly!

I would totally forget to bring my bags with me to go shopping! Great for the environment, but terrible for us after shopping. :) I don't know if you have Ikea over there, but they follow the same concept and I never remember for my little things!

Sometimes we can't tolerate the cold here! I love the sound of mild temperatures year-round where you live. We were shoveling very often because we didn't want anyone slipping on the sidewalk. Quite a workout. :D

Now that is a funny story and a good way to remember to bring your own bag. I keep forgetting mine too.

I love your card and the flower is a pretty touch.

Have a great week!

bringing our own bags to the store is optional right now-sometimes I remember-I love the valentine you made for your hubby-and getting the paper at a garage sale is awesome
