The Good, The Bad and The Happy News - Part Deux


So, having been to a couple of shows (good news) and bought lots of stash (more good news), then having lost some Tim Holtz stash (very bad news), I managed to order another stamp set to replace lost item, and treated myself to a couple more TH sets for the trouble (very good news).

Then the Big Shot that I ordered to replace my broken Cuttlebug was suddenly out of stock after my order had been accepted (bad news) but they offered me an Evolution Advanced with detachable motor, which was in stock, at an extremely good price (very good news).  It should arrive tomorrow - will I be able to sleep tonight?

And the happy news is that my new stamp set, Party Girl, is now available at STAMPlorations (there's a pic and a link on my sidebar up there).  Come back tomorrow for a card made with that set.

But for today's card, this is show stash that I managed not to lose, and I'm entering it into Simon Says Monday Challenge, For The Love of Plants.

  3. Beyond cool! Love, love, love the colors!

    I'm anxious to hear all about your new little rig once you've had a chance to test drive it! Please let us all know what you think!

  4. A very fun card! I have the Evolution and I love it! I don't have the motor part and not sure I really need it. I like the fact that you just adjust the dial for the thickness of your die without having to make different "sandwiches". I think you'll like it. :-)
