But OMG - that premise has been thrown out the window the last week or so.
First off, hubby has gone to the States for business and that can only mean one thing - buying Papertrey Ink stamps, dies .... and the sorts.
Normally that would be enough to last me for a while - having had a shopping fix and all ... you would think wouldn't you.
But then I went and bought those Paper Smooches stamps I spoke about last week ... ka-ching
Not to mention the Stanpin' Up! stamps from my party the other week ... ka-ching
Then I saw a post on facebook by Annette about dies from dies to die for and bought a few of those .... ka-ching
And then this morning I decided to take a break from tidying and surf the web for a little, saw this card by Mary and suddenly I just HAD TO HAVE some Bakers twine, I mean had to have, like someone that has to have cocaine, that kind of had to have. Not just a little bit of twine either, I bought two full spools of 220 metres each from a great shop I found in the States with reasonable postage ..... and breathe.
What is wrong with me.
Shall I just erase my paypal account right now or what.
Then, as I am very much resisting getting off this chair and resuming my tidying, I started going through my computer folders and tidying up my images. I stumbled across these old cards I made way back for Simply Cards and papercraft magazine.
I have been so caught up with stamping recently I have completely forgotten how much I love dies and die cutting. I am SO going to make some cards with dies this week ... I am!
