Don't Let the Little Things Bug You!!


Sorry I'm a little late in posting this morning, but I actually got to sleep in! I NEVER sleep in! It was awesome, so now I am posting while my coffee is brewing, the sun is shining....it's going to be a beautiful day!!

Yesterday I got to spend the day with my pal Andrea for her birthday and we stamped our little hearts out! We also made a trip out to Scrappin' Great Deals since it is only a few minutes from her house.....and I picked up some new 6x6 paper pads by WRMK, I got the new Large Octagons and Scalloped Octagon Nestabilities AND I picked up a couple of new Fiskars border punches....Apron Lace and Effervescence! Ahhh what fun! Here's a little tip for ya though.....just because it's your birthday, does not magically make you able to sing!!! SOME people are under this false assumption and I'm here to tell ya....it's a MYTH, people!!! *giggle*

Anyhoo, I played some more with my new Canson copic paper and coloured a lot of things. Here is the next card featuring this new paper! I used one of the new Magnolia Spring Kit images and some new Citrus glitter paper by DCWV. The card base is Pacific Point and I used Tangerine Tango for matting and the rest is DCWV dp. I had fun colouring on this new paper and doing more shading and using my blender pen! The sentiment is from the new Ladybug Friends set from CCDesigns.




I pop dotted everything and attached some Prima hydrangeas with some Basic Grey brads and then lined the bottom border with smaller brads! Pretty bright and springy, huh?

So I am really lovin' playin' with this paper and I was kind of sad because the only place I know to get it is in Toronto and would cost me shipping etc., plus I'd have to WAIT to get it....and I'm SO not good at waiting! WELL, Andrea saw the cover of the pad and said she was SURE that she saw it at Michael's. Let's just say, I had my doubts and I bet her five pretend dollars it wasn't there. So on my way home, I stopped in and lo and behold....there it WAS!!! I shall never doubt her again!! haha!! So it is about twice the cost at Michael's, but with my 40% off coupon I got it for a little bit more than at the other place and I didn't have to pay shipping OR WAIT for it to arrive in the mail!! It's a win-win situation, I think!! Heeheeeeeee!

Edited to Add: Okay, a lot of people want to see a picture of the pad, so here it is! It's called Canson Fanboy Drawing Pad and it's 150lb weight.




Well, today is a holiday for Good Friday here in Canada...yaaaay! I have lots of laundry to do, but I'd like to take a nice walk in the sunshine and then do some stampin'.....of course!!! What are YOUR plans???

Hey Kim...I had the same thought while at Michael's yesterday. I did see some Canson drawing paper, but couldn't remember EXACTLY what it was called.....hows about you take a pic of the cover & post it, so we all know what to look for :)

Sandra said...

Hugs
