Oh well, what can I say? I am in this really spendy mood at the moment!! I get them from time to time ....
Welcome along to another Wednesday hop around the world's crafting spaces, courtesy of head girl Julia . Thanks for all your lovely comments last time about my corkboard. I may need another one....!
So, the newbies then.... well, on Sunday - just Sunday - I was just looking (!) at some of the new ranges that Tim is launching this year and some of which is already on it's way to the UK. And I decided that I DID need the paperstack you see on my desk today. And once again, it fell into my online cart.... as they do. So it didn't feel lonely in transit I got some new stamps...
When this paperstack came out, I thought I didn't like it - well over the last few days I have seen some blogs and tweets using this paper and what can I say - I am a convert! SCRUMMY!
Also, Wendy at the Stamp Attic has it for a very good price.
It arrived (at work) on Tuesday - two days after ordering it - as I say, on a Sunday. What service.
I was only going to do one, as there was something else I wanted to do (a challenge piece) but I decided after stamping the tag, to put it through one of Tim's texture fade folders.... Once I put the acetate on top, I decided the embossing was too much, so I did another one and left the tag "plain".
Much prefer the one on the right.
Stamped the butterflies with stazon and then used alcohol inks on the other side to colour them.
And yes, I did buy the TSV from QVC on Tuesday - despite going to bed well before the launch at midnight; I wasn't going to, honest - but something woke me up on the dot of midnight and I just had to check it out... before I knew what I was doing, I was on the phone, credit card in my hand.... it's Tim's fault, he is too good a salesman as well as crafter! And I'm not going to the Artsycraft session later this week, so ...... Those of you who are - well, enjoy! Really really wish I had signed up for it now.
Anyhow, I have rambled on long enough and you have desks to visit, so - until next week, TTFN!
(Edit, Wednesday morning - my tag for the Simon Says challenge got the randomly drawn prize - more spending, ROFL! Thanks Simon Says and the random generator!!! and congrats to the other winners this week)
My heart also goes out to everyone in Christchurch, NZ who is affected by the dreadful earthquate.Sometimes, "real life" is more important. Blessings to you all.
