Whipper Snapper Best Friends

Here is a very simple card for you today. This one I made using the Whipper Snapper stamp called Best Friends. Aren't these little girlies cute?? I got the stamp and the glittery DCWV patterned paper at The Town Scrapper. I coloured the image with my Copics and used the sketchy colouring technique, not colouring to the edges of the lines, instead leaving some areas white to draw the eye. This is a great stamp for this technique. I doodled around the frame, added a couple of buttons and some wide pink grosgrain SU ribbon.

Today was quite CHILLY here in Florida, so no beach for us! Instead we went shopping!!! Our first stop was a great little sb store that I discovered online, called The Scrapbook Shoppe. It is a HUGE scrapbook store and I met a couple of super nice ladies in there who were very helpful. Unfortunately, Al and Emileigh insisted on staying in the car, so the whole time I was in there, I was thinking about them tapping their feet waiting for me. So I rushed. Do you know that feeling?? So I didn't buy a whole lot and then we continued on to a couple of big malls.

The first one was one of those with the big fancy richy rich stores and we totally felt out of place at that mall! Like people could just look at us and see that we couldn't afford anything in the place! So we went to another mall and had much better luck.

On our way back to the coast, we stopped at a Target and picked up a few things and then we happened to see a Costco. Well, I made a total score there!! You know these Tote-ally Cool Totes by All My Memories??

They are fabulous with lots of great pockets and they are on a lazy susan so they can swivel on your craft table for easy access. Well, in Canada they cost a minimum of $45 in our local scrapbook stores. I got one in Costco with a bonus of the mini tote as well....for.....get this......$14.97!!! Can you believe that??? It's such a high when you get a good bargain, isn't it?? I just hope it doesn't take up too much room in my suitcase!

Anyway, we've got something cool planned for tomorrow and I hope it works out okay. I'll take pics and tell you all about it!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!!

Super cute card! I hate that you are experiencing a cold snap on your vacation (one thing you can predict about weather here in the South- it is unpredictable)! I'm in Alabama and this week it has been high 60's one day then 27 the next- go figure! I got that same deal at our local Costco (already had one of the original totes but couldn't pass up that deal.) I use the mini when I want to take some of my Copics on the road with me. If it want fit in your suitcase, could you use it as a purse- teeheehee! Wishing you safe & fun travels!

You know the last time Sean came with me to a stamp store he was waiting by the door. So I sent him to the Verizon store to look at phones and told him to take his time! I hate that feeling of people waiting, even if they aren't "tapping their feet."

And what a score with that tote! How fun!!!

Oh yes, your card is adorable!
