a purse and a boat

My preorder from the Stampin' Up! catalogue finally arrived yesterday. I had it sent to Halifax. Wouldn't ya know it, no mojo!
It's been a few weeks since I stamped. I have to get back into it. I tried the sock monkey with brown Martha Stewart glitter. I only had Zip Dry Glue, so it didn't work out too well.
I wanted to do this purse for my cousin, Treena's, Bday last week. Yeah, it wasn't flowing. I'm not in love with it, think I'll put a few curves in the next one. Anyhow, here it is:

I got a new ID stamp for the back of my cards. I got tired of using a marker on the SU copyright one when I didn't use SU products. This way, people have more info on how to contact me and see my wares. Warning: At 1st, I bought the one with the pretty script. The last line was illegible. So they kindly made a new one for me in the new font. Much better.

Took the kids to the harbourfront this morning. They have a lot of boat tours there, but the big draw is Theodore Tugboat.
There is a tv series on him, but I've only seen it on BBC kids. Anyhow, Rafael remembers it and we enjoyed looking at him. He is very expensive to ride and for over an hour, stuck on a boat, not my cup of tea. So mama cheaped out and bought a ticket on the Dartmouth ferry for 2 bucks and we rode over and back. lol Passed Theodore on the way and had a little wave.

What they do have that I would like to do, (just have to work a little more at convincing Rafael) is a boat/bus touring thing. For the moment, the name escapes me. It goes in the water and then drives on the street. Oh yes, it's called the Harbour Hopper.
It's 5 bucks more than Theodore, but it takes you around the water and the city also. Now THAT is cool.

Thanks for looking,
