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 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.
