A Peace Birthday Card

                 Hello to all you wonderful blogging buds.  The peace card is below, Just in case you want to by pass all this wonderful stuff I'm writing about which has nothing to do with the card. I just felt like doing a little blogging today. Well it was my children's first day back to school. I always get a little misty when they have to go back, after having them with me all summer long. I know school is good for them and I'm happy to have some more blogging and crafting time.

              I want to tell you about this store hubby took me  Over the weekend  called Amazing Savings. I had heard other scrappers talk about this store, but I didn't know if I had one nearby. Well, it so happens that my hubby was helping our son move into his new place and found one about a block away from him. I was overjoyed to go visit our son and take a look at this store. besides all the regular house wares and lots of Mikasa glass pieces and an abundance of kitchen gadgets and cutting boards and some furniture storage pieces. There is an area of school supplies and on the other side it's crafts and scrapbooking. they have lots of K and Company stickers as well as paper packs. lots of Making memories paper packs and pebble brads. lots of Page kits from colorbok, stamps from image tree and DCWV epoxy brads and they also carry stuff from Stickopotamus and many more embellishments. Needless to say, I left with a lot of stuff with out breaking the bank, because most things were a dollar and the paper packs about 3.00. I think they are over stocks but the prices sure are amazing. I would ask any one with a low budget to go check these stores out. I saved a lot for the same items I buy at my local craft store.they don't have everything but you usually will leave with a few good stuff.

                   Okay, sorry if the post was too long. But now for the Peace card, I went to my little niece's birthday party last week. She wanted a peace party, so beside's buying her some cute shirts with peace designs on them. I made her this simple peace card in her favorite colors lots of pinks and purples. I used one of my favorite embossed cards in white. I also  used Peace stamps  and peace ribbon a lot of Copics in pink and purple. I also use Martha Stewart glitter glues and spica glitter pens to dot the inside of the flowers, I used a giant circle punch and scallop decorative scissors to go around the circle.

Yay, here is the finished card fast and super simple and cute.
