Happy Birthday x 2

Whenever I go to Michael's I see all the yellow and red clearance pricetags hanging from EMPTY hooks. It's maddening. However..... I was there a few days ago finally managed to get some radically price-reduced supplies before they were all taken! First I pick up a fantastic 12 x 12 paper pad on sale from $29.99 down to $11.99. (It was the last one!!) Also I grabbed some birthday stickers reduced to $1.49 from $6.99. And I never use stickers on my cards but I put them to use right away.
So here's two cards, from one sticker pack.
FAB birthday.

I'm making an effort to use my Cricut more. The FAB diecut is from the Create a Critter cartridge. For these challenges -
Shopping Our Stash. STICKERS
Card Crafters Circle. SENTIMENT

For the second card I really went to town with the stickers. Paired them up with some strips of my new paper....easy peasy.

For these challenges -
Crafty Sentiments. BRIGHT COLOURS
Loves Rubber Stamps. PHOTO INSPIRATION
Lexi's Creations. HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Thanks, Farrah

Hi Farrah hope you are ok. Whenever I go to America I head straight for the bargain shelves in Michaels! My best bargain was a really cheap American Crafts D ring album, really cheap - it was big to fit my case though!!

I love your happy cards, so bright and cheery!

I totally kwym about those empty clearance hooks. Drives me crazy! I always stand there sulking for a bit, 'cause I always figure that those hooks used to hold the most amazing supplies, that I would specifically need and all for a fraction of the regular price. Glad you were able to snag some stuff this time.

Wonderful cards! I really love that first one. The colours are....well, fab. :)
