OWH sketch 110 - filled with love

So, fellow cardmakers, I have a dilemma. This week my husband and I are planning a quick day trip to the Mall of America (DH insists his clothes are falling apart. FINE, make me shop.). :) There's a huge Archivers there, and as many times as I've been to the MOA, I've never been in Archivers.

So, dilemma is not whether to go inside. Oh, I will. How much do I allow myself to spend, is the question? I am planning to mail my OWH box for my deadline 5 days early, which I think means I can allow this small trip, as long as I plan accordingly. :)

So, while I go to google Archivers coupons (are there some? someone tell me!!), here's my card for the new sketch over at the Stars & Stamps blog:




















paper: Basic Grey's indie bloom, Unity Stamp co stamps, RRR jute ribbon and a whole lotta distress ink!

Did you notice my new holiday challenge ------> ? PLEASE join me in making cards each month that are holiday/winter themed for OWH! Each year the Christmas deadline sneaks up on me in the fall and I am woefully unprepared. Set your own goal - mine is 5 each month - and then we'll have something to mail to our shippers, even if that pesky deadline sneaks up again. :)

Thanks for visiting me today!

  2. I love this card!! I don't even know what an Archivers is, and I probably shouldn't find out. :) sounds dangerous... :).

  3. I live 2miles from an archivers. I have to limit my visits because there is so much to shop for. Plan on about $200. Download coupons from their website. Great card. Have fun shopping.

  4. Cute! The striped paper has such a nice old-fashioned feel to it. Perfect with the mason jar image. No Archiver's near me but based on their online site I'm guessing you will have some fun. :)

  5. Great card, Jen! Love that adorable paper! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

    PS - I've only been to an Archiver's once, but I racked up at some clearance bins in the back so be on the lookout for something like that!
