I have to admit that my creative ideas have not been in the forefront of my mind. In fact I am behind in the cards that should be made and I am getting some of them done moments before they are out the door. Usually in cases like this I will take a trip to the local stamp or craft store and buy me a little something, however I have been trying to watch my craft spending. My wonderful husband and son spoiled me for Mother’s day with a nice (generous) gift card to a local stamps store. Today was my day, I went shopping. I have idea’s wonderful ideas, even though the sun is out (and I am at work) I just want to rush home with my new treasures and create.

First things first, I stocked up on some of the items that are in need, I was running low on my Scotch double sided mounting tape, then came some Ink Essentials foam and applicator, some little daubers. Then came the additions, Distress inks in Frayed Burlap and Brushed Corduroy and Thomas Kincaid Christmas paper (yes Christmas). Lastly was my Memory Box Fix, just on the shelves new 6 x 6 Jubilee paper and some new stamps.

These are some of the new stamps on display, I love all of these but I only ended up buying two as I wanted to save a little bit on my gift card for my next lapse in creativity.

This is a teaser of Jubilee, the paper are so pretty.If I am lucky I will have a card or two to post near the end of the week. Who am I kidding it is Thursday, the rain is suppose to return on Sunday maybe that will be a good day to lock myself in my craft space.




  1. what great buys ...can't wait to see your creations...that paper looks very interesting. Have a great weekend.


  2. O me GOSH the stamps are to die for and the paper delicious. I could NOT resist, good thing I don't live there. You would have to restrain me. *giggle*!

    Love ya,
