Mother's Day

I went to a stamp convention here today in twincities, wow it was worse than I ever seen it.

$7.00 to get in and there was only 7 vendors I think it was and 1 was pampered chef and one was CTMH and TAC. Years ago when I started going there was sooo many stamp vendors it was not even funny but no stamp vendors today. They use to have company's like Inky Antics, Darcies, Stamps By Judith, you name it and it was there at one time. How disappointing. I ended up buying one stamp that is a small saying you give to someone with a new baby and you put a penny of the year they were born and they use it for their wedding or something similiar.

Here is a stamp I made using my new Penny Black stamp hubby bought me. At HMStamps which i thought might make a good Mother's day card. It was colored with Copics and parts are pencils and Gamsol. I added stickles to the flowers and made parts of it 3d. The beautiful glitter paper is the Spring Glitter stack DCWV I bought at Joann's a few weeks ago.
Back to work tonight so I probably won't post until Wednesday unless I get ambitious.

Our stamp show is the end of April. I've gone the last two years, and it's been ok, WAY too many RUDE people always pushing you out of the way-but they still have some cute stuff. We'll see if all the vendors are the same this year... I love the oranges in your card. I bought this stack a few weeks ago, and still have yet to use it. One of these days....=)

I was disappointed with the Earle Brown show too- sure wasn't worth $7 to get in.

I did however go to the HM site that you recommended. I want some of the Penny Black transparent sets, and I've emailed him to see if I can pre-order.

Thanks for the heads up.
