Hi Everyone! How are you? It is so crazy here in Kansas! This weather is so nice but very windy! I have taken the week off to spend with the kids over spring break and I am enjoying every minute! I can't believe it is already Wednesday!

I wanted to share this card with you. I made this for a co-worker of mine who was celebrating her 10th Wedding Anniversary! She asked for something that had the number 10 on it for her hubby. I got this idea from Splitcoast Stampers, can't remember the gal's name to give her the appropriate credit. She used a background stamp and I didn't have one that I liked so I got out my Storybook Cricut Cartridge and cut out the swirly background images. Don't you just love that? I thought was so excited when the card came together! The bottom of the card says Happy Anniversary I love you and I alternated the font colors in red and black. She loved it!
Well I have to tell you all that I have been experimenting with couponing a little bit. I was so intrigued when I heard about these ladies that would buy $100 worth of groceries for $2. So I began clipping my coupons from the Sunday paper to online coupons. I also found out that you can go to Dillons online and load up your plus card with the store coupons they have, those won't double but if you buy it on sale then have their coupon on your plus card and one from the paper AND one from online you can save some major bucks. I did figure out that you have to watch some of the online coupon sites though, I printed coupons from there and got a little buggy on my computer, so word to the wise...stay away from the sites that say they are going to install the coupon printer on your computer. Needless to say here is a picture of my groceries. Yes, I took a picture! I got all of this for $146.00 and saved $143.00, so without coupons I would have spent $289.

Well thanks for peekin' in! Hope you are having a great week whatever you are doing!

Yes, I know a couple of people who do this and save bunches. I am going to have to try to work up some enthusiasm before I do more than I do now. I saved $11.00 today and that was good for me.

Hey - I'm wanting to get started with couponing too - please share with me what websites you are using?

I love hearing stories of people "stacking" their coupons and getting all kinds of stuff.

Hoping life settles soon so I can investigate further.

LOVE your anniversary card; so beautiful and elegant. Very rich looking; love that color combo!!
