Falling in Love All Over...

 

On Valentine's Day, Paul treated me to a little shopping at one
of the nearby SB stores.  The nearest one to our home
is nearly 30 miles away, but I am always happy to have a look!


I'm sure glad we took the trip.  I managed to spend very little money,
believe it or not.  My goal when I visit there is mainly to get the latest
and greatest DP's.  But as their CHA orders weren't quite in,
I had a look at their stamps.

 

Many of you know, I am pretty old school when it comes to my
stamps.  Yes, I have a very healthy collection of clear stamps, but...

.....there is nothing like the feel of a wood-mount in my hand.....
.....my heart pounding.....
.....wondering 'will I get it lined up or not?


I found a line of stamps that was pretty much new to me.
Maybe to you  too?

 

Memory Box...love that simple name.
Along with the stamps, I also purchased every package they
had on hand of the 8x8 collections.  The subtle prints are lovely.

For these cards, I used these extras:

Martha Stewart Eyelet Stationery
Ribbon from American Crafts & Celebrate It
Stickles in platinum
assorted pearl embellishments

I hope to catch up purchasing the rest of the
Memory Box collection of stamps and DP's soon because...

...I am totally in love.
How appropriate to fall in love on Valentine's Day.....

I've had a good mooch on this website and there are soooooo many yummy stamps and papers :) But what's a DP? Probably something obvious and it's me being daft...

LOVE, love, love these amazin' cards ... and those fab stamps you found!

Yup, clear stamps just don't "do it" for me. Red rubber: it's the real thing!

At last!! Someone who prefers "proper" wooden stamps! I know they take up so much more space, but you're right, they just FEEL good. I have some great clear stamps, but....!! love the cards you've made, can't wait to get home to choose my 3 colours for the challenge.
