Do PMS and Mojo mix well?

They do this week! The Monday PMS challenge PMSMC07 was to use ribbon on your card with a PMS image, and the Mojo Monday sketch #82 was pictured here (minus the sentiment). It was fun this week! I was determined to use my new Labels Three that I ordered from Katie at PMS (Paper Makeup Stamps) on this card, so I had to go on a grander scale and make the card 5 1/2 inch square! Argus with his little teddy fit beautifully on this one! And, guess where I got the awesome patterned paper and ribbon? Target, in the dollar spot, no less! I should be part owner in the Target corporation with how much money I drop in there weekly!

Dawn and I went on a stamping excursion yesterday with our 4 year old girls. We live in Charlotte, and Mooresville (a big Nascar town) is only about 45 minutes to an hour north of us. Well, they have a great scrapbook store and an awesome stamp store within a mile of each other. We went to the Scrap Shack first, and I was able to pick up some 12x12 sheets of some of my favorite Basic Grey paper. I found an awesome butterfly die from Quickkutz on sale! Then, it was off to the Stamper's Alley. We love this store, and we happen to be there on April 15th, and they give their customers a 15% discount on the 15th...who'd a thunk? So, I bought another new Nestie, a pot of Shimmerz and some stamps (like I need more stamps!). Fun day with lunch at Five Guys and a side trip to Tuesday Morning (we hit the jackpot there with scrapbooking paper!).
Sorry, like anyone wants to hear about our excursions, but it was paper crafting related!!

Cute card and I want an excursion like yours!!! Is Five Guys a burger place? We have a Five Guys in our town that is a burger place but I did not think it was a chain?
