A Shopping we will go!

Although this does not resemble a Holiday card, it is however a Christmas gift for our daughter. Hubby had a plan....to give her a 25 minute shopping spree at the grocery store to repair the state of "old mother Hubbard's" syndrome of empty cupboards at her new apartment :)
Do you remember the game show supermarket sweep? It was a show where the contestant won a few minute shopping free for all, it was pretty hilarious to watch. Those contestants had nothing on a 21 year old with a bare checking account!!! Girl can shop!

This darling cart {I just happened to have a stamp} is from a retired Stampin'Up! set called "the wheel thing" And yes I DID cut out each one of the squares with my craft knife! It went pretty fast actually.And it makes such a difference.Totally worth the effort! The food is from the SU comfort food hostess set.


I used the photo corner punch to make my triangle points...although now I realize I could have used a square punch and cut them in half as well. Hmmmm? maybe my way was faster after all.
Don't you just love that sentiment? Of course its all in good fun, we all know money cant buy happiness truly. Stamps and ribbon? yes. That too is happiness. A Shopping we will go. :)

The Holidays are upon us, please take time out for yourself to enjoy all of the little moments that matter the most. As always Happy Creating, my dear friends!!

Stumbled across your blog as I cased one of your cards on Splitcoast(pick-a-petal one) (thanks!) - but I absolutely love the idea behind this card - what a lovely bunch of parents you guys must be! I'm having a wander around your blog and am loving everything I see!!! Thanks for the inspirations!
