I have another card today for the sketch at Lily Pad Card Challenges. You are allowed to enter more than once and it is such a great sketch that I decided to use it again. Didn't even flip it this time!
My colors come from the challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps to Say It In ..... Pink, Green and Kraft. The stamps are also from AnnaBelle's set All Things Grow.
I pulled out a tool that hasn't seen the light of day in a long time -- my crimper. Sounds like someone on "So You Think You Can Dance" -- oh wait, that's a crumper! Any how, the Kraft paper in the background has been crimped.
Now, on to my report about my trip to Miguel's in Guadalajara. It was two stories of arts and crafts supplies, but very little for card making. All I saw was a small selection of patterned paper and several assorted hand punches for small items like stars, small animals, etc. But, there were ribbons along several sides of the store, both downstairs and up -- they won't be running out any time soon! And what really appealed to me (although I have plenty in my stash and no need to buy now) was a full long aisle of glitter! Boy, was I in glitter heaven -- every color you could think of, from tiny packs to huge bags! There were foam crafts, artificial flowers, flower picks, storage containers (some of the cutest tiny containers!), jewelry making items, all manner of beads from high end to plastic. The majority of the upper floor had Christmas items. There were many other things that I can't remember but you get the picture! And speaking of pictures........
|Along the right wall is a section of ribbon on the upper level.|
There's even more than this downstairs, plus the special bins throughout the store with Christmas ribbons!
|Here's the glitter aisle, friends!|
The left hand side is the bagged glitter. Right hand side are things that already have glitter on them!
Gotta go for now, adios.....
