newest purchases

Oh my...Karen at Paper Pals has the coolest stuff!
Look at the amazing clear stamps I got yesterday. These are called "Elegant Flourishes" by Autumn Leaves - designer is Rhonna Farrer. I've been eyeing the hot flourish stamps for a few months now, but I really love this version. (Karen's sale helped nudge me to finally buy some.)

My creative muse is doing cartwheels!

I also picked up the Fiskars Stamp Press (12-2958) to use with these new clear stamps. You align the clear, flexible stamp on the grid, then press down. The sponges compress and you are left with a nice crisp stamped image. (photo courtesy of Fiskars company)

It appears that that I 'rock'.
When your teens say this, it is a good thing. When a stamper says this, it is not! This press should help eliminate the double images that plague my stamping efforts.

I just chased my daughter, Susannah, away. She wanted to peek into my bag of new toys, but her birthday present is there too. She turns 14 on Saturday.

Patience darling!
