Retail therapy, that is....  and I don't want to think how much I have spent this year on craft materials because it is only February!  Sometimes I can be frugal but other times I just n-e-e-d to replenish and give myself a boost of creativity and inspiration. 

And what better way than go to the Stamparama Show with a good friend? Now Pauline is a bad influence... I mean, we have the same taste, same enthusiasm, and when your friend is piling her bags full, what is a girl to do? We did hold back though! With some stamps we compared and bought different sets so that we can share and have even more. What a great money saving idea!! 

Here is a selection of my new stamps. I bought lots of others bits too but these are what excited me most. I desperately wanted the PaperArtsy Christmas stamps last year but knew I would not have time to use them to make cards.  But as they were reduced they were hard to resist.  And it's 10 months to Christmas, so surely I'll have time to use them this year?!


I loved this new range of flower stamps designed by Jo Firth-Young.

And after watching Leandra from PaperArty demonstrate how to use them... well... they just jumped into my basket!!

I can't wait to use them and meanwhile Pauline emailed me with a photo of 2 pieces of art she made today with her new stamps. She has now posted these on her new blog so welcome to blogland Pauline, it took you a long time but so glad you finally joined the party! I am VERY impressed and I know where to go if I need some top tips! Do pop over and see her amazing canvas's.

And what's more PaperArtsy have some excellent tutorials on their blog

Thanks for visiting and have a good week!
