New markers, Riley Stamps, and 19 days!


On Saturday, Melanie and I took the bus into town and did a little bit of shopping. My first stop was at Michael's, where I used my 50% off coupon this week to FINALLY buy my Prismacolor markers! (Thankfully I stopped at the mailbox first, where I found the coupon!!!) The 48 count markers retail for $189, but I got them for half ($95)! And then I used 2 gift cards I had for $75, so in the end it only cost me $20 plus tax! You can't beat that! And now I can color my images or at least attempt to anyway! I am so excited!
And now that I have these wonderful markers, I can finally color my Riley stamps!!! I used this cute little one with the tent as a birthday card for my nephew Phil who likes to camp with his family. I hope he likes it as much as I do! I can't wait to do more!

And with that, it's 19 days and counting to Cancun! I'm making my reservations to swim with the dolphins tonight! How much fun that wll be!

This is kind of ignorant, but I had no idea you were so talented. You drew that card? It's not only adorable but amazing! And don't pass it off as your fancy markers--that's really a cool ability.

Enjoy Mexico!
