There are all these great stamps out there, and as they say, too many stamps, too little time. Yesterday, in avoidance of work, I was window-shopping around for stamps... so get this:
I want 10 sets from My Favorite Things truly, I just really 4 of them. And they give you free shipping for $40, but those particular 4 won't qualify me. Boo.
5 sets from Lizzie Anne total to $89 no free shipping... boo. I know I'm little late in the game to join, but they do have some fun stuff.
I want 4 sets from All That Scrap that's about $72, luckily they ship for free for any order over $10. Good thing is that these girls have tastes and also carry MFT & Lizzie Anne, so that free shipping bit is very very very helpful!
4 sets from Kim Hughes birdies total up as $70... don't think they have free shipping
Then, grand finale of them all, 12 sets from Paper Trey tally to $231. And yes, there is free shipping for orders over $40.
This is insane!!!! Cannot be.... I mean, I need stamps like I need a hole in my head, but seriously.... Gah!
Anyway, back to this card... This is my first Vday card of the year. It's good color combo, I think. But it is a tad muted. I was trying so hard not to buy more new stuff... so trying to work off what I have... So, I dug up my Making Memories Romance card set, and have had it. I like it... because it is almost saying thru that letter, loves me/loves me not... very appropriate. Hope you enjoy it.
