We had a beautiful day here in
was a nice surprise after the very cold weather we have had. It was sunny and
mild but the wind had just a bit of a cool bite to it at times. Joe’s back
seemed a little better so we ventured out for an hour’s walk this morning and
then got groceries this afternoon. He had some trouble getting in the car and a
lot getting out, as expected. I guess we should have bought a small SUV when we
bought this car but getting in and out of it was not a problem four years ago.
Hopefully he didn’t overdo it today and won’t pay for it tomorrow. Ontario
Before I post the card let me tell you what I scored at the thrift store today. I bought 4 packages of heavy chipboard shaped covers for small scrapbook albums from Want2Scrap….like this…but 4 different shapes...
each. They had all four (brand
new, still sealed) packages in one bag and priced at $1.99….but it was senior’s
day today so after my discount it only came to $1.55. That is why I shop at the
thrift stores!!! You do have to know your prices though because some of the
people who price things obviously do not. One time I did see a small alphabet
stamp set that was priced at $7.99 and it originally came from the dollar store…..I
knew that because that is where I bought mine. Pity the poor person who bought
Today’s card is the second one made with the new die set.
I wasn’t sure I liked this die and…… wasn’t even sure what the heck it was….so I die cut out of this piece of beige cardstock and realized it was a branch with flowers. Okay, I can deal with that! I simply splashed on some brown water colour paint and then stamped the sentiment with brown ink. The sentiment is from a Close to my Heart stamp set. This was then mounted on a Kraft card base.
That’s all for a beautiful March 21, 2017.
