Hoppy Birthday Tag!

Heres a cute tag I created. The "hoppy birthday" stamp originally was a dollar area stamp that said "happy birthday", and I just stamped an "O"(which was from a dollar area alpha stamp set) over the "A". The frog stamp is from an American Girl clear stamp set. The to and from stamp is a dollar stamp too. The balloon is a little brad and I just drew a string. The buttons were sent to me from Jo "paperdrama". I added some silly googly eyes as this was for a little kid and it made the froggy cuter.

Tuseday Mornings Haul & Other Stuff!

Hi All!
Its been a looooong time! I'e been busy and haven't had a chance to post on here or youtube! But I thought I should post something!

So, Today I went shopping at a different Tusday Mornings than the other one I've been to and this one was AWESOME! I went there hunting for the Tim Holtz goodies, Martha Stewart goodies and anything else that caught my eye! Right when I walked into the store facing the door was Tim's grunge board packs and metal cases and Martha's punches along with the rolls of Heidi Swapp stickers! I totally ran up to them as if someone else was there to snag them all away from me (of course there wasn't any one else there looking at them)! So I started looking thru the packs of grunge papers and saw the packs were randomly mixed so I went thru them all looking for the packs I liked best! Then I saw the Martha Stewart punches and there weren't many to chose from. After that I totally didn't notice the Tim Holtz metal boxes at the top of the shelf  but I luckily looked up and I quickly snatched one as if it was the last one on earth and everyone wanted one (there were about 8 of them, I was just excited). I then started going thru the box of Heidi Swapp sticker rolls but didn't find any that I really needed (I wanted the damask stickers). I then wandered around till I came to the crafty aisle! That area was dangerous there was so much to look at I had to stop and refocus! I started digging around and found some cute little brads. I then found a smaller Tim Holtz metal box which was just tossed in a box, and there was only one! Then I turned around and saw all these pretty fibers/yarns, I didn't get any but wow! However in one of the fiber boxes I found some Ranger Adirondack ink. I then remembered to look up on the top of the shelve and saw one of those giant boxes of Heidi Swapp goodies, I decided to peek to see what was in it and decided I didn't really need it. I then went through the ribbon boxes and found some cute Martha Stewart reversible ribbon (which I had never boughten before but the reverse side of the ribbons are so pretty).  After I was done there I went to a yummy sushi restaurant! Shopping makes me hungry!LOL!
