The store is 7,000 square feet, packed full of everything scrapbooking, including lots of stamping things and a bunch of pre-made books for every theme you can imagine - all you have to do is add your pictures. And the cropping area was so nice! Each person had a space of their own - all very well organized.
And yes, I bought a BUNCH of new papers, including a few of my new favorites from My Minds Eye, Bo Bunny and Websters Pages, plus some Basic Grey, American Crafts, and some others I don't remember right now. I also got a couple of cute American Crafts ribbon spools, and a cute clear stamp from Imaginisce. I hope I get to go back down there one day, just so I can go visit the folks at Gigi's. It was a wonderful store!
Now, on to the card. I made this for the friend who took me to Florida with her. The paper is K & Company Tim Coffey "Blue Roses Flat". I put it on a base of DCWV card stock and used some Stickles 'Star Dust to give it some shine.
The butterflies are made from coquina shells I picked up on the beach while we were there, with the addition of some copper wire antennae.
The sentiment is from a clear stamp, using Versamark ink and Ranger 'Seafoam White' embossing powders.
I hope she enjoys the card, and knows how much I appreciate her asking me to come along on her trip. Everyone have a great day, and I'll be back soon! Becky
