Scrap-Making

Venting...and 2 cards..

Hi everyone! Are you enjoying your Sunday? Hopefully you are...I am going to RELAX! It has been such a busy week for me. Yesterday me and my sis Sandra went to a Scrapbook Expo, it has kinda become a little tradition for the two of us now, we've gone for the past 3 years now! But this year it was a different story...we both didn't have babysitters so we had our little ones with us and all I have to say is next year we WILL have babysitters! LOL! Strollers and babies do mix well with hundreds of people squeezing through tiny isles, and it's really hard to focus on getting the best deal when your little one is throwing a tantrum! OMG! never again!! lol .... I was able to find a booth with unbelievable deals on cartridges..I got 3 for only 60 buck! and I was so tempted to get some Copics but I thought I would hold off just a little bit longer..maybe next time! :)

So besides that...I did manage to get two little cards done during the week and I finally have some down time to post them. These are some more sneaks of the new Scrappy Mom's Stamps 'A Pinch and A Dash'.
 I used Create a Critter and PK Extra Large Critter Faces to make this shape card.
 I thought this one was funny...since one of the ice creams has a bite taken out of it! :)
 I used Simply Charmed and PK Everyday Character Face Assortment  for this card.
 Hope you like 'em, thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the Scrappy Mom's DT has made with the new stamp set HERE!

Love the cards! I can sympathize with you and having to shop with kids. I tried a scrapbook expo once with 2 kids and a stroller and will never again! I can't even take my kis to Michael's or Joann's without having issues! Relax and enjoy your sunday!

oh so glad you got some play time with your sister even if it meant taking the kiddos, these cards are precious, love em both but bottom one is my fav! Hugs

Your cards are adorable! Those little faces just make them.

And you are right -- you can't enjoy yourself with little ones while trying to get great deals. It sounds like you did great with the cartridges though!

Sorry your fun day out with your sister was not as much fun as you would have liked Joanna(not easy when little ones are with you no matter what kind of shopping you are doing :o) !!)

Love both your cards...the sentiments are perfect for each one!! TFS

Oh my goodness. These are both adorable cards. I just picked up some PK stamps today - during the sale :) The critter faces may have to go on my want list... TFS

What a cute card. Well I am sure next year you will get a babysitter. My kids are all grown up now (7 kids) so I definitely know what a hassle it is to take your kids shopping, let alone a craft expo.

Thanks for sharing!!

Your cards are adorable. I have got to break down and order some of those little face stamps. They are too cute. Love what you did with the ice cream card.

I love these cards and PKS makes it so easy!

*Star said...

Super cute cards! I really love the Popsicle one.

I so wish I could go to the scrapbook expo but with 7 kids the cost of a babysitter is way too much and I'm not crazy enough to take them all with me. ;)
Tfs and have a great day!

Oh these are so cute! The pk faces are just perfect on the icecream one! I know how you feel about the trying to shop with kids. I have a hard time even running into Michaels with my 3 year old. She likes to use the wooden stamps as building blocks!

GiGi said...

These are very cute cards. I am sorry to hear that your trip to the craft expo wasn't the best. We love our children but in the same respect we do NEED breaks! :) Especially when it comes to paper craft shopping!LOL!

Tracey said...

Audrey Frelx said...

Melissa said...

Super cute cards!

Those cards are both soo cute! I love those little popsicles! Shopping with little ones is not always the most fun. For me it seems to come in phases - for awhile Nicole loves going out on errands and all it takes is a little snack and a sippy cup. Then other times I just take lots of deep breaths and shop as FAST as I can! :) LOL! Hang in there!
