Question Source for full-size fluid chalk pads in Canada

Hey there Canadian stampers! Do any of you have a good on-line source for the full-size pads of Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink? It seems to be hard to find in Ottawa so I would need to order it in. Lots of places have the cats eye queues, but I prefer the larger pads for brayering, inking large stamps, et.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Karen,

I know you are having difficulty finding the large CB Fluid chalk pads locally. If you do find a source, you may want to just buy one and give it a test drive. The foam used on the full-size pads is *very* different from the cateye's. I have 'em both but ONLY use my cateyes because I'm not crazy about the results with the full-size ones. Just my $0.02.

Good luck!

Linda

Thanks for your 2 cents Linda! You're right, they are very different. I do have about four of the full size pads and I find them quite juicy, but as long as I remember that, I do ok with them. I have tried the cats eye pads with my mini brayer and I find it really hard to get enough ink loaded on the brayer. I want the instant gratification of the full size pad
