WK# 92- Distress Inks, Pearls and Stickles

Good Morning,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm in Cleveland with my husband so I'm really happy right now :))
Cleveland impressed me more than I expected. The part of the city were we are living looks so nice. Beautiful houses around our building, nice view of the frozen lake and three close parks to be in touch with nature. The frozen lake looks like a big pool of whip cream or something like that. It's really beautiful! I love it! Below I included a slide show with some pictures.
People is nice and I like everything around here so far. I found a goldmine called "Pat Catan's" which is a craft store that seems to supply some goodies to Michael's. At first I couldn't believe the prices. I was in shock!!!
- 50 brads for $0.50
- bazzill flowers -packages of 12 for $1.79
- Inque Boutique Stamps sets from $1.00 I can't believe that I found the scrap-world heaven!!! in Ohio!!!! :))) I paid $9.99 for some of these sets at Michael's, while here it only costs $1.00.

Now let's talk about ASFS challenge blog. I made this card using one of my favorite Magnolia stamps. If you want to play with us this week the theme is easy: just use distress inks, pearls and stickles in your card :))



Enjoy the pictures!

Hugs,

LIM :))

Wow Lim sounds like you are having a wonderful time with your hubby, the pictures are fabulous, and wow that frozen lake!!
Isn't it funny how we have to find a crafty shop no matter where we go?! To say I am jealous of your bargains would be an understatement, wish I could find a shop like that here!!!
Your card is gorgeous as always, the pretty pinks, flowers, image, everything!
Enjoy the rest of your break.
