You are so thoughtful

Wow, I have been gone for a few days! We have had some internet/computer issues so I haven't been online in a few days. Plus Kip and I had a rare Saturday off and we spent the entire day together. Those days are pretty few and far between. We went to a scrap store and he was patient while I looked around and talked (for a long time!), although he did have to take trip to the coffee shop next door. The we ate lunch at a wing restaurant and walked next door to the movie theater to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. We have both been wanting to see it, but this was our first opportunity to see it since it was released. All in all, it was a great day.

I finally got all of Jenna's invitations and thank you note cards finished so I have had time to play around in the craft room for a bit this afternoon. This card uses stamps from two different sets from The Angel Company. I didn't take a picture of the inside but it says thank you. The image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Prisma and Copic markers and the sentiments were stamped with CTMH Chocolate ink. I have no idea who makes the paper, it was from my box of precut scraps.

I did break from my self challenge at the LSS. Not too bad though! When I was at Archivers last month, I bought one of those small $1.99 Basic Gray stamp sets that has a little girl on it but they were out of the little boy. I got that stamp set and a paper drill that was on clearance. It will supposedly drill through 250 sheets of paper. I thought it would come in handy making Christmas gifts. It had been $34.00, but was sale for $15.00. I really went in there to get a larger block for my Just Rite stamps and because I saw in their newsletter that they were now carrying Copics. I only have the smallest one circle and would like to get the larger circle and one of the ovals. With the smallest one, if I use a border, I can't spell my last name and Samantha is a little jealous that I can do Jenna's name and not hers. The store is just starting with the Copics though and only had about six or eight colors and they were all primary colors, nothing to blend with or anything. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

So glad you & Kip got to spend the day together - even if he had to endure some craft shopping...that's true love!!

I'm off to Archiver's tomorrow with my bff - who's not into crafting. I figure I have about 30 minutes before driving her to complete boredom! Hopefully I'm good and don't buy too much!

Love the layout of your card - great combo of dp's!!
