Middle of the Week...and I'm feelin' strange

Weird things have been happinin' to me legionnaires, but hey, that's life sometimes. As long as it's not exorsist, Fringe, "V" type stuff (Gosh I watch too much SciFi), it's all good.
Here's a card I made and designed my very own self too, I might add. Here's the deets.
Posted by PicasaI've had my Sizzix machine for years, but never could afford an alphabet. Well, I guess they're not as popular as they were, 'cause lo & behold, I walked into Joann's a few weeks ago, and they had three sets on the clearance table for $39.99. Yup, half-price and and I quick grabbed this one called "Cherish." I'm not crazy about it and I think it will see limited use, but there is an upper and lower case and I do kinda' like it. The leaf is a Sizzix die I used my coupon for last week. And the flower is felt and I made it with a CB die. Had to run it through a few times, but it came out fine. the center is a cute button with thin strips of paper used as thread. I like that touch...so much easier than dragging out the needle and attempting to thread same with failing eyesight. And, of course, the border is one of MS' most popular border punches. The paper is textured core'dinations. I don't see any other title on the sheets, so I'm not sure if it is a division of Bazzil's, but I've seen it used around the blogosphere. Once again, Joann's, 5 for $1.00. They had a great variety of colors and it has nice heft to it, so you can use it for a base. So, a great haul was had by all...corny, huh?
Here's hoping yours days are normal and your skies are blue.
Hugs & Blessings,
Erica

This is beautiful! I went to buy that leaf die at J's with 50% off but it was "on sale" for 40% so I have to wait. JMS is having a blog hop... watch my blog for all the details and hope you can participate!
