More stash on the way - EEK!!!!

I have a confession - I have spent rather a large sum of money at create and craft this morning - but not without checking that it was infact a real bargain first;

Sheena Douglas has got the pick of the week slot this week and if you hop over to her blog - she actually gave us a sneeky peek at what would be on the show. Nestabilities.

As a newby cuttlebug user, and having only got 2 sets of nesties so far - labels one and scalloped cirles - I have been after additional nesties.  Yesterday while on a rare excursion into town since I've been unwell (I had to take my son to the Orthadontist) I visited the craft shop near the car park.  I asked if they had any nestabilities in stock - guess what - he DIDN'T KNOW what I was talking about.  They didn't have any promarkers either - infact, I only came back with a fraction of what was on my mental (i'd fogotten the real one) crafty shopping list.  I was more than put out.  Anyway - watching the pick of the week this morning was like an omen - most of the stuff I wanted could be bought on flexi pay - so guess what - I went for it and spent just under (only just mind you) £130 - happy bunny or what?

I've got a set of 4 labels coming which have worked out to the equivalent of £12.50 ish per set, some Tim Holts distressing ink pads and dry cut foam, Crafters Companion rocker blocks (I'm RUBBISH at stamping and thought they'd help), some pinflair glue, and some inks that I cant pronounce the name of very well...  I'm all excited now at my pending delivery :O) - I'm sure there was something else but I can't remember what...

Gonna print out that card for my OH birthday now which I can 'exclusively reveal' here:

Its an idea i've 'borrowed' off Helen at 'It's all Fiddle Fart'... she did a Beatles card as a commission which gave me the idea. Click here for a look at the 'original'.

The pic is a jpeg of the front of the card, I have yet to assemble and print out etc but this was simply generated on microsoft word using a table format.

Bye for now.
