Sow the Seeds of Love.........and Shopping!!!


Well, it's Sunday and my only day off this week. I have piles of laundry to do and dishes and the floors need cleaning......and of course, there's always stamping to do!! I wonder how much I can get done before I cave in and retire to my stamp room? Heehee!

Lunch in Petrolia on Thursday was great, as usual!! This time it was Ellen, my Mom, Irene and myself and Phebe joined us later. The meal was phenomenal (I had the special which was quiche....and fries!) and we had a great chat!! Then we headed over to Phebe's for a little stamp shoppin'! I got some new Prima Sprites and Press n' Petals. LOVE Prima flowers!! The other ladies spent more than I did (for once) and picked up some High Hopes stamps and some from My Favorite Things!

Then after we left there we decided to head up to the main street to check out a store called Two Doors Down that we had heard so much about. Well, it's a discount store where places like Costco send their clothing and stuff to sell off....cheap!! Let's just say that I really scored!!! Did I mentioned to you that next weekend, Al and Emileigh and I are flying to Florida for a week??? Yippeeeeeeeee!! I REALLY need a vacation!! Anyway, the one section of this store is like a women's boutique will all sorts of beautiful clothes!!! I was able to get: 3 eyelet tank tops, a sleeveless white blouse, a short sleeve hoodie top, 2 cotton A-line skirts and a quilted winter jacket all for $100!!! It was awesome!! Now I'm all set for the warm weather!!

Anyway, I'm waiting to get my March work schedule and then we can plan another outing. I will post it on here and you can email me if you'd like to join us!!

Today's card is one I created last week for a Gina K. sketch challenge on SCS. I used an older retired SU stamp set called Friendships Grow. I got it in a trade and I just LOVE the design. If you know of any other SU sets done along the same lines or style, let me know!! This one I stamped on SU watercolour paper and used my SU markers to colour her in. The dp is Melissa Frances and I added some SU taffeta ribbon and some Prima flowers and brads. Cute huh??? Oh and the sentiment is one of the Hanna Stamps sayings.

Well, hope you have a nice quiet Sunday with a little bit of 'alone' time!! Happy Stampin'!!!

I'm having such bad deja vu with this, I could swear you've asked this question before and I've answered you already!

So, just to be safe I'll say that the retired SU set 'And everything nice' is also a great set. Lots of cute little girls, flowers and a kitty. Really close to this style, I loved it!
