A Valentine's Card!

Hi again, I'm so very excited. My local scrap store had 20% off stamps yesterday and boy did I take advantage of that! I got some cute stuff. I think I'm going to take a pic for you :) The deals weren't as good as some of my virtual shopping I've been doing lately (you know, when you fill that cart and then just look at it and think about all the fun you'd have opening the box once it came!) but once I convert the money from Canadian funds and then pay shipping, it turns out that what I bought wouldn't have been as cheap as I thought. Also, I hate having to wait weeks for the snail mail to arrive!

Anyway, a pic of my new stash... I also got some say it with crystals, white cardstock, brads to match the 3 Basic Grey 6x6 paper pads I also got (all girly!) and a white gel pen. (I'm so not shopping for a LONG time now)
Yes, I didn't stop at the stamps & stuff. I've wanted to get copics since I heard about them and well, I'm bad that way... The lady at the store remembered my last visit (only 2 weeks ago) and saw my armful of stuff and well, offered me a bit of a deal on the copics (I think she senses my addiction and knows I can't pass up a deal!)... tada... they're mine :)
Well, my hubby took at look at my loot and he crushed me. He said "you're colouring?" to which I responded "yeah..." and then I got an "oh". He just doesn't understand. He said "I just didn't know that's what you were so excited about." Oh well, I guess he's just not going to understand until he sees all the cuteness that I produce.
To start off, I used a new stamp (Penny Black I believe) and my copics (so I need some lessons or something... who cares... they were the best "markers" I've ever had the pleasure of using!), some plain old cardstock, a piece of ribbon, stickles and a mulberry flower I had from my sculpting and voila, my first valentines day card!
So, while I was shopping, she also asked if I was looking for some part-time work (she probably knows that I'd spend my whole cheque there anyway, so why not?!). I can't though, but maybe someday... hmmm... I think it would kill me though!
Oh, I almost forgot about my $22 purchase at a scrap store closing sale. My stuff's worth over $50!!! She's also looking to get rid of some huge pieces of mulberry paper. I'm going to look at it tomorrow. I'll let you know then and maybe tell you about my purchase there... some new stuff I'm excited to try as well :) I'm off for now... Happy crafting!
