Today

In last nights mail i received this Fern Lace Background stamp (su 1997) from an recent eBay win (brand spanking new not even mounted) that just seems so funny to me that someone would have held on to a stamp for 10 years without playing with it, i don't know about you, but the first thing i do when i get a new stamp is play with it. (and or mount it) :) the lace is stamped with Versafine Olympia green on Always Artichoke cardstock, then the Joy (a different su set) is stamped with the same ink on Very Vanilla cardstock then colored with markers (and you cant see it in this shot, but also sakura gelly roll pens) The ribbon is an recent Joann's find. (holiday ribbon)
Now this is really cool or is that totally cool? lol this is a Medium sized bag and so far i have put about half of my pencils into it with some spare adhesives and scissors and such. the center i have tucked a few images to color that i want to play with next. ( the idea behind this one is it will be easier to take with me then a bucket full of pencils and then something else for everything else...
Now here's the best part, i stopped at Biglots today on the way home from work and this is 10.00 there... they also had them in a baby ish blue color combo too. ( along with some AMM ribbon box things and some itty bitty magnetic closure albums) which i did not buy, but, if your an AMM fan maybe an trip to Biglots in your neck of the woods will find you something happy too. ( Ive read rumors that the leather purses are being found at some peoples big lots ~ Not mine) :)

Gorgeous card. I love the gold stitching on your elegant card. The carry all looks great.

I love my Fern Lace Background stamp - I can't imagine not using it. Beautiful card!

Great find on that bag. Your coloring on the JOY is gorgeous.
I have an old CTMh stamp that is really similar to that SU! background- I have a hard time woking with those BIG stamps getting a nice even imprint...so I don't use them much because of that.

I can't believe that is a card that is not computer fabricated! You did any amazing job coloring it all in! I don't think I could do it!

I love Big lots! I have not seen the purses but I sure will be looking for them soon! Thanks for the heads up!

Great card. Love the red tote. I have a purple on. Also love to hit Big lots when I can.

Stacy, I had that bag in pink as well, but I didn't like it because it that little drawer space kinda 'caved in' after I had the bag loaded. I found a similar bag that's a little wider with no 'drawer' on the bottom (for about $15), and I really LOVE it. (And I know they still have them . . . ).

I'll be looking at Big Lots for those leather bags; I presume you're talking about the ones from MM that I've drooled over at HL.
