A Very Busy Weekend

Hi everyone! Boy did I have a busy weekend. I could use a snow day tomorrow. ONLY KIDDING! We are suppose to get some snow tomorrow. Boy I am not ready for that.
I had a great time with on the Scrapbook Bus Tour. We went to three scrapbook stores . I really like the Scrapbook Super Store in Madison. That is were we started. The other stores were nice but they don’t have the tools like the Super Store does. I am a big fan of tools. My favorite stores growing up were hardware stores. I just love all the different tools and gadgets. That is why I am so hooked on card making.
I would have liked to go to Gina K's store but it is small and wouldn't be able to handle all the people that were on the bus. The picture is of my friend Terri and me. We are at the second store doing our make and take. Each store had wonderful make and takes.
Today I cleaned, did laundry, and went to the grocery store. Then I cleaned up my card stock scraps in my craft room. When that was done I just had to try the Stamp TV technique challenge for this week. The second picture is my project for this week's challenge at Stamp TV. It is a candy challenge. I used the new set by Theresa Momber called A Very Merry Christmas for the bells. I embossed them with Stampenodous Jeweled Gold and colored them with Copic markers. The little stocking on the candy nugget, the pillow box, and ribbon are all from the new Stamp TV set called Holiday Cheer by Gina K. I made two other cards and a cute Frankenstein box that I will show you later this week, so please stop back.
Thanks for stopping now and let me know you were here!

Oh what a fun day it sounds like you had! I love the candy with the Christmas bells, just the right amount of shimmer. Our one true scrapbooking store closed down a few years ago so I'm stuck with the chain stores to do my shopping. No bus rides for me!

We've been lucky so far with no serious illnesses at school, but we had a scare at my second job. Luckily it turned out not to be H1N1 like was thought. Hopefully this long weekend will clean out some of the germs at school!
