My First Crop and A Card

Good Evening! Wow what a night last night, I went to my very first crop. Walking into this ladies house was crazy!! 4 huge rooms full of crafting supplies, anything and everything you could image! have looking around and getting over the shock I learned a few new tricks. one thing I learn was how to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig, really wish I had know how to use this along time ago. Check out the video to see what I am talking about (O and a lady at the crop said she made her own so I am going to try that and save myself some money). My mission last night was to make a card for the little girl my mom and I babysit because she became a big sister 11 days ago and we got her alittle gift so she wouldn't feel left out. We there was a cute image that I stamped and was just going to colour in at home with my watercolor pencils, but the copics were calling my name!! Big mistake I spent this afternoon looking up the best price for them...... however I think I will go with Promarkers as they are cheaper and from what I can tell give the same effect! Parting with this card today was really hard as it was my first time using the copics and I wanted to keep it:(

What I think I Used (LOL)
Close to My Heart: Little Princess Stamp set
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders: Ovals and Lacey Oval Dies
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Textile
We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper: 1/2"
not sure which company's the sentiments came from but I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get them spaced properly as one was a clear stamp and the other a wooden stamp.

I am for sure going back to this lady's house for another crop (November 6th to be exact lol). This time I know what she has and will make a list of what I want to do! If you have never been to a crop I really recommend it, not only do you get to craft but you get to meet with people and learn from them as well!!

Well I better get to bed as we have a busy day tomorrow, a 4 month old baby ontop of our regular kids, I get my baby fix in for the day!

Have A Great Night!

God Bless!
