I had to leave my truck at Carbone's to get the converter replaced today, so my mom let me borrow her truck to get to work (thanks Mom). Well it sucked that I had to work, but after, we went to Michaels and Sweetheart stamps in Rome. I love Sweetheart stamps, they have the cutest stamps around and they are sooooooooooo friggin' nice! We missed the sale they had last week, but she gave it to me anyway (see what I mean, thus the name)! So I got some really cute new stamps and will hopefully be able to start my Christmas cards.
The samples they have at the are too stinkin' cute and they are colored so beautifully!!! Last time I was there, I was talking to her about Copic markers, which I have been dying for, and she told me that PrismaColor also makes a similar marker. I couldn't find them at AC Moore as she suggested, but Michaels has them. They cost $189.00 for 48 of them, so even at 50% off that's $90.00, so I figured I would try a couple first and maybe someone will be nice enough to buy them for me for Christmas, LOL!
This is my very first image that I colored with them and it didn't come out too bad except for the blue, it looked a lot lighter on the pen. Well after I started it was too late and then I tried to make it better, but it just got worse. Anywhooo, I was going to throw it away, but Cameron asked me to make a card for him with it, so I did. Afterall, this stamp was purchased for him. We are going to make little cards for his classmates and hang them on candy canes.
Papers are Wild Wasabi (since it was already on the table), Real Red, and White. The white is done with the cuttlebug embossing folder and the wasabi with Marvy square scallop punch. The ribbon is from Michaels and doesn't look great on here, but it was the one Cameron picked. The stamp is Framed Snowman by Hero Arts. It is a 3x3 card.
After we went shopping, the night got even better (difficult I know), when I picked up my truck they had cleaned it inside and out. It was filthy and now it smells like new. I can't believe it, how nice of them! Especially since the repairs were free!
Thanks for stopping by!
