Happy Mother's Day Card AND The Tape Depot...

Hi everyone!! Boy, am I happy today!!! I FINALLY found refill tape for my ATG gun cheaper than Michaels. I have been looking into this or so long.... Fellow crafty Canadians, you know what I'm talking about, right?!?! Refills at Michaels are $5 a roll in Canada! Sometimes I can use a coupon and get them 40% off one pack, but I live 2 hours from the nearest Michaels so when I do get there I need to stock up! I did some researching on the web and found a few places that sell them but none as cheap as The Tape Depot. My only problem was that I kept calling and calling, sending emails, and I could never get ahold of anyone. I tried ordering online but there was an error when I went to checkout and I was never able to select a province on their order form. FINALLY this morning I got ahold of someone. I bought a CASE - 144 rolls - and got it shipped to my Uncle in Texas, who is driving back to Canada on Thursday. It ended up costing me $186 (including RUSH shipping to my Uncle so it gets to him before he leaves Texas) for 144 rolls!! So cheap! Anyways, that has gotten me super excited! For anyone else from Canada trying to order from there, the guy I talked to said they are switching over servers and should have the online form back and working by the end of the week. I hope that helps someone else who was in my situation! :)

Onto today's project!! I made ANOTHER super quick card... My husband is going to finally have some time off work in a couple weeks! I have my fingers crossed he will look after the kids so I can lock myself away in my craft room for an afternoon and get some scrapbooking done. For now it'll be cards! I need the practice anyway... ;)

I finally got to use my Country Life cart!! I made this with my mom in mind. I know she will love the colors, and her house is very "country" so I think she's going to like it.

 Details...
- vase is from Country Life (I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink)
- flower centers are Recollections pearls from Michaels
- Sentiment stamped on the inside is 'Happy Mother's Day' from My Pink Stamper
- of COURSE doodles with my white Gelly Roll pen

whew, my am I wordy today!! :)
