Sniffles… no mail?

Pooey!!! I didn’t get one piece of “cool” mail this week. I guess I kind of exhausted that last week, when I got my Prismacolors and etc. But not one thing this week besides Mastercard telling me that “there was a discrepancy with my card and that they sent me a new one to use.” Um… a little bit of a scary thought. I checked my online balances right away and nothing out of the ordinary showed. Just a bunch of transactions at the grocery stores, Wal-Mart, Michael’s, and other LSS. *Gasp* Wait a minute…. LSS!!! Who put those transactions on there – not I! lol.

Anyway… I do expect a lot of mail this week as I am waiting for my order from Close to My Heart and Stampin’ Up to arrive. What else? Friends from the Stamp Shack have pm’d me to let me know that their swaps are in the mail… Won a stamp from Angie last week too. Yooray, I hope it’s going to be a fun a week. I will need it as my midterms are coming up. Cannot let the new toys interfere with school either, though it will be tempting.

Nothing new to post… I’ve kind of been on a slump after my Valentine’s post. sniff. Hopefully I’ll sneak in time to play this week.

Valentine’s Day

I wish I could make all occasion cards all year, but I guess I’m really not that well rounded. Now that Valentine’s is just around the corner, everything I’ve been doing is red/pink/white/black. The only one card I made this week that wasn’t Valentine themed was for Christie’s Bella swap that I can’t show you yet. Both of the following cards are for swaps I am in from the Stamp Shack.

I had so much fun with this Bella! Loveybella is one of Emily’s recent creations and when I saw her, I completely fell in love with her (not that I don’t love the other Bella’s!). But I thought she was perfect for my Valentines Cards.

I am lovin’ the a*muse stamps! Had to pick up Piggy and Petunia with the “oh-la-la.” They will be used over and over again, I’m sure.

Supplies used:
Valentinabella – Stamps: Stamping Bella, My Sentiments Exactly, Paper: Bazill, KI Memories, Accessories: Michael’s ribbon, Doodlebug brads, Prismacolor pencils, odourless mineral spirits, Stickles glitter glue
Oh la la – Stamps: a*muse, Paper: Bazill, Hiedi Grace Designs, Accessories: Michael’s ribbon and heart punch, Prismacolors pencils, odourless mineral spirits

What a week!

It all started with checking out a new LSS store in the area… Technically not new by any means, but it was new to us in that it was our first time there. As luck would have it, they were having a patterned paper sale. I was a good girl and picked up only a small amount! If you have not heard, I have taken an oath to not buy anything that is more than absolutely necessary in February! I hope I can survive… I really, really do.

Some of these colour schemes are out of my norm, but I thought it would be good to explore outside of my comfort zone.

Have you ever seen a more beautiful site? LOL My Prisma’s finally came in the mail. I had to pay an extra $18 in duties, but it was still cheaper than buying in Canada.

Kaylyn was kind enough to have me over at her house on Tuesday and this was what I left with! Thank you so much Kay!

What to do with these new rubbah stamps?

To end my week, my $1 Rhonna Farrer stamps came from Angie (finally!) We were both surprised that it took 9 whole days to get here. I was getting really worried. Is that not the cutest itty bitty card you’ve seen? I think the stamped image is also another $1RF stamp right, Angie?

So much to play with, but when will I have all the time? *damsel in distress*
