thrifty thursday: thurston post sale!

well, i came up with an idea for this week's Thrifty Thursday post after all.  it may be just a little self-serving, but since my little etsy shop doesn't get too much exposure, i'm all right with it!  i have a few items--and more to come--that are on sale and i decided to showcase them as this week's deal.
{shabby chic friend card - $4.00}

the card above is a sweet one featuring pinks, creams, and greens.  i hand-stitched around the edge and used some different trims like lace, vineyard twine, and specialty green ribbon.  the bath soap image is a vintage sticker by Melissa Frances.
{u inspire me - $3.00}

for this card i rubber stamped and heat embossed the cameo silhouette and frame and then hand-cut it out.  i added glitter letters, thick black satin ribbon, and a little bling as finishing touches.
{you make my life a beautiful thing - $2.75}

the last card is a trifold card that opens to reveal a nice sentiment and some pretty floral patterned paper. it's a great card for a sweet friend and at $2.75, it's also a sweet price!  

well, that's going to do it for today--short and sweet.  tonight Hoss and I are driving down to san diego to watch my most favorite band in the world perform--james.  i am so in love with them and they always put on a fantastic show.  we were unable to see them the last time they toured the US because the night they were here was Mr. Bagubian's due date.  of course, he came 5 days later so we could have gone!  i hope to have some photos to share with you from the show. Hoss surprised me with VIP pre-show tickets so we get to watch the band do their soundcheck and have a brief q&a session with them (and the rest of the VIP's).  it's sure to be an amazing night!  i hope yours is, too!
