Yahoo! I finally got out and about driving today :) It was awesome to be behind the wheel of the car again so of course Jamie and I drove down to Target to stock up on essentials - OK, and non-essentials! I just love that place. It's just as well I don't live as close to it as I used's far too easy to drop some serious $ there!

Also went to Barnes & Noble down in Littleton and picked up the latest copy of "Stampers Sampler" (June) - Alma had told me there was one of my cards in there; I found it and another one of mine ("artist unknown" - they must have lost my name) so it was a happy day!

Iain's off to San Francisco tonight, but will be back on Wednesday afternoon. Jamie and I are going to the "Welcome to Kindergarten" session tomorrow afternoon. He is very excited!

Two Peas Blog Challenge: "what scrapbooking technique do you want to try?" I think I'd say using transparencies. I received a couple in some monthly kits and have seen some fun ideas over at Two Peas and in scrapping magazines. I really like the look they give to a project!

Card on the right is made with stamps from justjohanna; the vase is a punched shape. Thanks for stopping by :)

Love the card, so pretty! You are so lucky to have Target and B&N...we don't up here in Canada. Looks like we'll just HAVE to take a short trip to the States again this year!

Great cards! If you want tips on using transparencies look up Karen Russell. She designs for Creative Imaginations and she rocks : )

Great cards! I wish my Target had more stuff. They have a very small aisle with stuff, but to be honest, nothing great. Not even the $ boxes!

Congrats on your cards being published!
I have tried a few transparencies and I love the look of it. You're so lucky to have a Target, we don't have any here in Canada.
