Here's that little rabbit again - Warren by Craftwork Cards. A simple little card, but hey, sometimes simple is good! I cut the base card from Bazzill cardstock using the Wildcard Cricut cartridge at 5", and a plain circle in green at 3 3.4" to mat the rabbit image. I used my machine to add some pink zig zag stitching, and finished with a string bow and a small Recollections (Michaels) paper flower. The tag is also by Craftwork Cards.
I have loads of emails from people in the UK who are coming to Florida on holiday, wanting to know about the best deals and places to go - did you know that tens of thousands of Brits cross the Atlantic every year? So my USA friends, ignore this.......
A couple of weeks before you fly over, register your email address with Michaels and Jo-Anns, they will send you email newsletters with coupons. Look online to see where the nearest store is to your hotel - you will need the zip code (postcode) of the hotel for this. It's the five numbers at the end of the address.(In case Americans are reading this in astonishment, we use letters and numbers for our postcodes in the UK, so yours look quite different) Also look online to see if there is a Hobby Lobby or AC Moore anywhere in your vicinity
While you are here, buy the Sunday newspaper, that gives you flyers for all the stores, with coupons for that week - the hotels usually have vending machines for the papers just outside.
Check out Walmart, they sell craft stuff, including the Cricut Lite cartridges
Look out for Tuesday Morning and Big Lots, they usually have craft stuff at ridiculous prices
Be sure to check, either online or in the local phone directory when you get here, for local scrapbook stores as well. They are the small shops that often stock unusual stuff that you don't get in the big stores
Right, now I have done my bit for the American economy, if anyone can think of another bargain place to shop, please add it in a comment.
I'll be back tomorrow, with a card that, at the moment is just a twinkle in my eye, will it work out? That's always the big question of the day...see you then
