One Magnolia, Two Magnolia, Three Magnolia, FOUR!

I went shopping in Petrolia today; P-town to my kids - where they went to high school, where my mom and step-dad live, where Ron's brother and niece live, where my mom was the minister at the United Church for a few years- gotta LUV Petrolia, Ontario!! in-laws, out-laws, you name it - we know people!!

Well, I didn't get four Magnolia's but I did get three!! Two Tildas and some fish. Not sure what I am going to do with the fish, but The Town Scrapper thought that there is a mermaid, sooooo....I can envision it now!! I got some High Hopes stamps also!! I am sooo happy!!

Oh my goodness, what a SWEET shop she has!!! And not sweet as in sugary, but sweet as in ever-luvin' DROOL!

Can you say High Hopes, Magnolia, My Favorite Things, Whipper Snapper all in her front room shop! Cuttlebug, cardstock , brads (yep), eyelets. I was holding onto little Jakie (grandson) who really is the love of my life, while Marcie shopped (we were taking turns) and all I could think of was, my turn, my turn, my turn.......poor Jake....he might have gone out with the bath water - so to speak!

Phebe (pronounced Fee-Bee - no "o") was so great, she brought out toys for him to play with....which did work for a minute.....ah well.

Marcie had story hour with off she went while I got down to some serious shopping.

A few $$$'s later, and after making two new friends -hi Phebe, hi other lady who was there too! *waving* - I was out the door, speeding home, wanting to PLAY!!

I inked up my new Tilda stamp and jumped into the sketch challenge on SCS today. I coloured her with my copics and sparkled up her wings, shoes and ponytail holders with the copic glitter pen.

I used some Bling cardstock (luv it!) that I got at-- ta-DA!--The Town Scrapper! Basic Grey Gypsy was used for her pants and the background and then Offray ribbon was tied to one side of the card.

I stamped "be mine" from Papertrey Ink's Limitless Labels onto a circle cut out with the "nesties" and popped it up on the image!!

Some blingy brads and a couple of acrylic embellishments later, I was done!! Whoop whoop!!
Many thanks to Kim Reid, for cluing us into The Town Scrapper.

If you ever find yourself in P-town, head over and prepare to be amazed!!

  7. Wonderful card--think the colors are fabulous. Outside of the blog world I've never seen a Tilda stamp. I'm piecing together a set of Copics so will be slowing down on the stamps for a while but there is a stamping show in New Jersey that I think I'll be able to go to coming up in April--maybe there will be Tildas!
