A Day of Shopping!

Tag1703

Well ... we went to Ikea ... not many purchases and Dan did tell the guy at the restaurant till that he was my carer ... but other than that it was fun! Lots of yummy frames to alter and a few little jars for storing yummy things in. Then ... I had my first ever Cosco experience! WOW! That is all I can say really. I have never seen such large packets of anything and I got a fab new wire tray cum TSS metal storage station for a tenner.

Chatting to Dan as you do I grabbed the trolley and carried on oohing and arrhing and Dan said ... you do realise you have to pay cash in here don't you ... I said I did n't ... but that was OK. He said "Have you got enough to cover all those purchases then?" I thought he had gone quite mad ... looked down and I was only pushing a trolley loaded with about 50 children's games ... I had walked away with the wrong one ... took me ages to stop laughing and return it :0)Taga1703

Today's tag is made with the Daisy mould from TSS and their silver metal ... aged and distressed with blue and black acrylic paint ... the rose is blue acrylic painted Grunge paper and made with the middle size Wendy Vecchi rose ... I have all three now :0) Still got the large one left to try :0)

There is a Timmy memo pin holding the Timmy ticket ... you know Tim the man that can turn a 100 acre field of weeds into Wheat with just a flick of his wrist and a tiny dollop of rock candy stickles while driving a lorry and pushing a car at the same time!

Shout if you have any other questions ... after my unsuccessful attempt to tell you how I made my beer mat the other day ... completely forgetting the butterflies etc., ... I am back to answering questions by email :0)

Have a good evening ... Dan and I are about to start creating ... erm ... a mess probably :0)

Linda -

Thank you for the giggles. I just had a mental picture of you floating around Costco pilfering other shopper's carts. "ooh, look at the goodies this cart has, think I'll take it. Oh wait, this one is even nicer, I'll have that one instead"! Hope you and Dan make a lovely mess!

Sounds like you and Dan are having heaps of fun!! I learned the cash at Costco the hard way too... well, I didn't steal other peeps loaded up trollies... just piled heaps into my own and then had to make a runner for an ATM!!
Your tags are looking divine all lined up on the plasterboard... we won't tell, honest!!

Dan said...

Help, help! I thought it was going to be fun, but she's just mad and strange and has taken my car keys away! (She's coming back, I have to go!)

Lottie said...

What fun you are both having - how brilliant - I want to be a fly on the wall - and follow you around - wish you had a webcam

craftimamma said...

What a brilliant idea Lottie. A webcam on those two would keep us all entertained. Mind, I can just imagine the aching sides and jaws from all the laughter!

Er, sorry Linda, where was I? Ah yes, the tag! Beautiful as always. The rose is just gorgeous. Wish I could make Grungepaper behave the way you do.

Hugs

LOL....Dan...has Linda put her Timmy mask on you yet? You know - Tim, the man who she's been talking about ever since she saw him creating roses out of grungepaper! Have you ever heard of such a thing?! ROFL. Watch out for that one. You have been warned. *Ü* ~Glen~

Angie said...

Love this ...that daisy mould looks so effective and what you did to the metal is so good. Wish I could pick your brains for an hour or so ....no make that a weekend .... or a month lol
I really need to have a propper go with my metal and tools rather than aimlessly playing.

Rosie said...

I've simply GOT to get myself to a branch of Costco - I keep hearing about it. What a fabulous shade of blue this is, makes me think of denim, and I'm so envious of you having a friend to play with - it seems ages since I did!! Bring him with you when you come ....

tea_bag said...

LOL sounds like a fun trip out alma xx

Paula Gale said...

Can I come round and make you coffee's etc, sounds like you're having a ball. Love the colour of that rose you've done Linda - oh and i've knicked my first batch of beer mats the other day... you and your blog is encouraging me to become a cleptomaniac (I think thats how you spell it)....

Alexandra said...

Linda,the blue tag and rose are gorgeous.
Glad you had fun shopping, Cosco is a whole different shopping experience. I laughed at the mental image of you wandering off with the wrong trolley, I'm glad you had your carer with you to keep you right, ROFLOL.
I got a brilliant bargain there last year, A huge organiser zipped file case full of very arty, inky, distressed stylee, gorgeous 12x12 heavier quality scrapbook papers, 300 double sided sheets in this zipped case, in rich vintage colours,rich red rusts, dark olive greens, browns, denim blues, etc a few arty, distressed lighter ones, soft yellows, blues, pinks and some with painted/printed birds silhouettes, flowers etc. All this for under £19. I wish I'd have picked up more cash to get more than the one.
hugs
Alexandra
