A Huge Thanks

I am a VERY lucky girl! At the beginning of August, my Mom and I went across the line to do some back to school shopping at the Chelsea Outlet Mall in Marysville, WA. The girls got loads of great clothes, shoes and great priced school supplies AND I got my first Coach purse and my Mommy bought it for me . Oh my god, it's beautiful! And it's not the type of Coach purse that had shelves of them either. heehee. It was regular $409.00 and got it for $160.00. Wicked deals that day. My Mom had a lady following her around hoping she put down her purse and a lady in line was saying "I want yours" to me. Too funny! So, maybe sounds petty all that over a purse, but when your a purse girl... it's a big deal. :o)

Anywho, marvelous Mel had stamped me some Miss Anya images for my Bday pkg and I had already coloured this image, so how perfect to put on a card for my thank you card to my Mom.
The inside says: "A girl can never have... too many fabulous handbags, too many stylish shoes, or too many incredible friends", from Purple Onion Designs. Talk about the best saying ever and so fitting for my great marathon weekend of shopping.

I've gotten new Copics for my Bday and bought myself some new ones. So much more fun when ya actually own more then 12. I really enjoy colouring the Anya's with Copics. I think I need me some of these gals.


Stamps - Greeting Farms - Miss Anya Collection, Purple Onion sentiment, So Many Scallops
Papers - Rose red, Bo Bunny Back to Basics, Soft sky and Neenah
Accessories - Copics, clear EP, Cuttlebug Argyle Folder, gem, scallop circle punch

Thanks for reading my blah blah blah about a purse. ;o)

Enjoy your last few weeks of summer!

Gramps Bday Card

I got this Grampa digi image in my Bday package of goodies from Mel that came from the Little Paper Shop. I thought I'd use him for my Dad's Bday card. This guys came out looking like Dr. Phil to me! I just threw this together quickly with whatever came to mind which is so not like my usual. I usually struggle forever and copy a layout and colours from a sc or cc. Inside it says - At your age isn't happy hour nap time? He likes his naps. Off for a few weeks of vaca! Looking forward to it and then want to use my other Anya for a card for my Mom and all the shopping we did in the States this past weekend and all the goodies she brought us all.

Happy last month of school holidays ladies!
