Shopping Delights

Hi All


It was pay day on Monday, and now the holidays are over, and before the Christmas spending starts, I thought I would treat myself for a change. Alright, alright, so what if I am a rubber addict and indulge on a regualr basis, (the stamping kind of course), there's no harm in it.
So as Monday was my day off, as well as it being pay day, I did a teeny weeny bit of 'E-shopping'

My first point of call was Graphics Direct to take a look at their Copic markers.

Well let me tell you, I took the plunge, and threw caution to the wind, and placed my order. Lets face it, they are not just any old cheap things, and it's hard to part with so much cash just for a few colours. But my my, what an investment. This set is the Spring colours. They're Beautiful. A real quality marker. They are lovely to hold too. I'm really impressed with the pigment in the colour. I'm definately going to have some more. The service from Graphics Direct was superb. I ordered them Monday, and they were here at 07:15 the next day by Royal Mail courier. Fantastic. I shall use their service again, it is first class.

THEN THERE'S MORE:
Four Whiff Of Joy stamps. My first ones actually. Can't wait to use them, they're so delightful... Also included were three free word stamps, and a snowflake stamp. That's so generous. I mean people don't have to give away free stuff, so it's so nice when you receive your purchases, and there's a bonus gift inside. Thank-you Katharina. I'm one happy shopper.

THERES EVEN MORE THAN THAT:

Tilda. I can't resist her. She's just so perfectly gorgeous. I love using these images, they are just the epitome of childhood.
These ones came from The Glitter Pot. Again first class service. They have loads of goodies in stock, including Forever Friends.

MORE, MORE, MORE....

These Little beauties were ordered from Capture The Magic. I'm adding to my Nestabilities bit by bit. I know there are more coming out all the time, so I'm always playing catch up. But they are so easy to use. I put them through my Big Shot, and they work fine. They are just so versatile, I 'luv em'

AND THAT'S NOT ALL.

I've also got some Spiral Whispers on the way, but I know they've been on holiday so they are trying to get their orders out like mad. Can't wait.

It's play time this weekend. I have to keep out of the way of DH as he has been given the task of decorating our bedroom. Ah well we can't all have fun can we???? Hehe

WOW Debbie thats one serious hawl...I am going to be interested in hearing how you get one with the copics, and how user friendly they are, plus if they really are worth the money {I got sneeky feeling that they are though}

All those rubber stamps too, I preminise some wonderful cards soon LOL

Sadly, apart from DT work, I haven't managed much at all recently....I have had a stonker of a head ache on and off now for a week and a half, it's really starting to drain me now.
