(These are not all of the items, I have already given some things away)
One of the highlights of my trip (and I hope I haven't disappointed you !!) was a trip to Michaels because I never go to Michael's! It must have been about three years or more ago that I stepped inside this huge store of craft goodies. Once again, I was overwhelmed. Huge paper pads, half price, only 9,99 dollars - all that paper in one pad would last me at least another three years... I couldn't believe it. So much to see, I didn't know where to look. Stamps in a rack for 1,50 - did I see that right?? Oh but I just couldn't only think of myself - my daughter in law would love to be here... And here I was in Michael's, Orlando just two weeks ago - eagerly looking around if I noticed any of the faces from blogland, but I didn't. Yes, I found three stamps, some pearls just the size I was looking for, a leaf paper punch, some envelopes and some cardstock and of course a beautiful 12x12 paper stack - just my style - perfect!! I cuddled the items and just relished my finds. I didn't go over the top just took a few of the things I needed. Back in the hotel room, I would look at my treasures over and over and couldn't wait to get home and use them. Sunday afternoon when we arrived back in Montpellier we were notified that our luggage had not been transported with the plane from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris - I couldn't believe it, I had to wait to pack out my crafting stuff and I SO wanted to make a card with them!! Our baggage arrived three days later....can you image the scenarios I faced wondering whether I would ever get to play with my goodies??!!
So now I will share a couple of the cards I made. This is patterned paper that I love the most! Doesn't need much added to it!
And this is a card I made using the Clock collage stamp from Hampton Art. It is a design I have used many times before, but I love changing it up with different stamps, especially the Real Flowers from Hero Arts and their Definition stamps.
Thanks for passing by! I will answer any questions anybody might have about a stamp or papers in the comments section.
I just might be able to share a couple of photos in my next post.
