Play Date in Petrolia!!!


Well, we had a great day yesterday!!! I packed up my car with all my goodies and left the house around 9:45am. The weather was very cold but nice and sunny so it was wonderful for driving. I listened to a Janet Evanovich book on cd in the car, which made the hour and a quarter drive very enjoyable.

Mom and Dad met me in Petrolia and Dad took off to Timmy's for a coffee and let Mom and I go stamp shopping!!!! We went over to Phebe's store, The Town Scrapper which is in the front room of her home. The kids were out building a snow fort on the front lawn and having a ball!

Phebe was in the middle of doing inventory and apologized for the store, but it really wasn't bad at all!! There were shelves with Whipper Snappers and High Hopes and Sunshine Designs. There were shelves with lots of pretty patterned papers and cans of lucious Prima flowers! And of course the racks of Magnolias........oooooeeeeee!!! So we shopped and talked and shopped and talked!! I also gave Phebe a basket full of my cards to sell in her store on consignment and I really hope they do well! We'll see what happens! I just LOVE how Phebe gets so excited over my creations! It makes me feel so good! She is so sweet and so completely generous! Love ya Phebe!!! *wave*

Then we figured that it was time to meet up with Dad and go for lunch!! So we walked back out to both of our cars in the parking lot and I called him on his cell phone, thinking he was still up the street at the coffee shop. I was talking to him and telling him to come back to where we were, to go eat at this restaurant that Phebe recommended, called Actors and he said, 'Well, there are lots of people going in and out of here. Why don't we eat here then?' and I said 'Well, where are you?'....(I was thinking he was talking about some restaurant up the street where he was) and he said 'I'm sitting in the car right beside you!!!' and I turned around and sure enough, he was sitting in their car right beside where I was standing, laughing his fool head off!! He had seen us walk toward the cars but we didn't look in them, so we didn't see him and then he saw me take out my cell phone to call him and he just waited and answered the phone and thought it was really funny and had a good laugh!!! It was so funny!!

Anyway, lunch was fabulous!! Dad treated us all to lunch and we all had the yummy fish and chips!! It was SO good, I'm gettin' hungry just thinkin' about it!! We had a nice visit too. I really miss getting together with them and chatting since we moved away. THEN, after lunch, Mom wanted to back to Phebe's store......so we did!! We spent more money and it's all Mom's fault!! heehee! Yah, like she really twisted my arm!!! I bought two cans of Prima Minnie flowers, some pretty pastel spring patterned papers and some adorable Whipper Snapper stamps....you know I can't resist them!! I just LOVE stamp shopping!!! Can you relate??

Well, enough of my babbling! I'm sure you might like to hear about the card in the picture above!!!? Maybe. I have just been having SO much fun playing with my new Magnolias, so I hope you aren't getting sick of seeing them! I have ALL the new ones that Phebe has in her store and they are so sought after and hard to find, that she is sold out of some of them. But feel free to contact me and I can email you with what she does have available if you want to get your inky little fingers on some!

So this card features the adorable little Baking Tilda!! I thought she would be perfect for a Valentine card with her little heart shaped cookies! I stamped her in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured her in using my SU markers and watercoloured under her feet with my Aquapainter. I used Rose Red, Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink cardstock along with some Daisy Bucket Designs patterned paper. I used some of my yummy satin Chocolate Chip ribbon and I placed it in between the matting layers and pop dotted the top two layers of the panel for the 3-D look. The sentiment layer is made using the SU scallop punch and a couple of circle punches along with the Riveting stamp set and I paper pierced each scallop with my Mat Pack. Lastly I added sparkle to her little wings with Stardust Stickles and I added a little row of three Espresso Baubles from Stampingbella!

So if you are ever taking a drive around Southwestern Ontario and you're looking for a stampin'/scrapbookin' store to visit (I mean, aren't we always lookin' for that), be sure to stop by the Town Scrapper in Petrolia!! And tell Phebe that Kimmie sent ya!!! *wink*

Oh, I so have stamp envy with your Tilda's. Keep thinking about ordering but haven't take the plunge yet. Wish someone locally carried them! You have done such a marvelous job with this as with all of your cards. I have no doubt that they will be a success!
