What is it about a sale that makes us lose all rational thought and fork over our hard earned money? I mentioned before about our local Xpedx store putting all their stamping items on clearance, and I got some great deals the first time I shopped their sale.
Then I found myself stopping by again. I guess I thought I might have missed something the first time.
And I did. I bought a few more things. Things I really needed.
Then, you'll never believe what happened next. I went back again! And found more things I just had to have that I missed the first two times I was there. What is up with that? I was secretly hoping they had lowered their prices even more, but they hadn't. Obviously, I didn't let that stop me.
One of my final purchases was the woodgrain circle stamp by Hero Arts. All of a sudden it dawned on me that I could use it with my owl and bird punches, and this card was born.
Stamps - Hero Arts woodgrain circle, PTI Wise Owl
Paper - tangerine, saffron, marina mist, black, old olive, Bali Breeze DSP (retired), GKD PL white
Ink - Memento rich cocoa
Accessories - Two-step bird, owl, and 1/8" punches, dimensionals
The best thing about my new stamp is that I only paid $2 for it. The clerk knew I had been in three times, so she gave me even better deals on a few of my items. That's a good way to try to get me to go back, but I think I'm done.
