Something new & More Blog Candy

I got an early birthday present from my son on Thursday. The only problem was that stomach flu was most definitely NOT on my wish list!!! I am still not 100% but I am tired of being plastered to the sofa, especially when a boxful of new stamps is staring at me. I also had 50% off coupons for Joanns for today so I managed to get out long enough to buy a few new toys. I took my boys along so I could use multiple coupons in one trip! I have never even looked at Sizzix stuff before but since it will work with my Cuttlebug I had to check it out. I bought a file folder die cut to start. I used it on the card below. Not sure it was the best I could do but it was a place to start. (I am blamin' it on the flu!) I also used the new Big Blossom Sell a Bration stamp. It seemed a bit plain so I added some piercings along the outer edges and sponged the white borders in cool Caribbean. The strip along the bottom is a piece of the new DP in the winter mini catalog. The words are from Fancy Flexible Phrases. The flower center and grosgrain are chocolate chip.
The other cool find at Joanns today was some Rhonna Farrer clear stamps for $1 at the check out! I thought for sure they were mispriced so I grabbed a bunch and 3 of them will go to the second name I draw for the birthday blog candy. I will be drawing the names tomorrow so don't forget to make a comment to that post to get your name in the mix.

I saw these last week, but they were at the end of the stamping isle. I was surprised to see that they are the same stamps that come in her sets though. Can't beat that price and it's great if you only like one or two designs from a set, but it doesn't make sense to me and wonder how they can make money by breaking up the sets this way. I did buy a few word stamps that I hadn't seen in any of the sets, but wasn't sure if I already had all the other images in my sets, so I didn't dare pick anything else. Nevertheless, these were a great find and I'm glad you found some too.

I have been looking at Sizzix stuff too, just bought a die off ebay for my cuttlebug!!!. I think your card is pretty - don't be too hard on yourself. Hope you're feeling better soon. (Good idea taking your boys to Joannes)

I love these stamps! Our little Joanns didn't carry them. We need a bigger Joanns I guess to get all the cool stuff!!!

I always check the Joann's dollar spot but we didnt have these here in Michigan. Really cute and perfect for younger kids to start with-love the dollar area at Target too!
