Small Business Saturday

Hello, one and all!  It's "Small Business Saturday," a day to promote local small businesses.  In that vein, I want to share with you a card that I made, using items purchased at my LSS (Scrapbooks Too).
 
Supplies: milk cap & tickets from Jenni Bowlin True Vintage; upcycled book page; alphabet stickers from Doodlebug; ribbon from Scrapbook Fantasies; corner punch from Creative Memories; ink from Clearsnap; paint from Ranger; cardstock from Neenah Paper.

On a recent trip to Scrapbooks Too I was overjoyed to find packs of Jenni Bowlin True Vintage milk caps and tickets.  As the name suggests, these are actual antique items.


The book page comes from a reproduction Dick and Jane reader, purchased at my local library's used book sale.  The cute, imaginative illustration was perfect for a child's birthday card.


I think that Small Business Saturday is a wonderful idea, and I'm happy to support the unique businesses in my local area.
