Last of my three "finds"

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world, and you are warm and dry...hugs

I went to PDA at Langley Mill yesterday afternoon to get some brown textured card that I love and I only had 1 sheet left. They are in the middle of moving things around and enlarging the shop area so they have lots more stamps and dies etc. than the last time I went around November last year. 

Of course I bought more than the brown card I went for LOL. I also got some white double sided pearlised card, and a couple of embossing folders including the chicken wire one that I have long wanted, and my first jar of gilding wax to play with. Add the 200 envelopes and my proposed £10 spend became £40+ LOL.

Here is the last of my three finds in my craftroom, no doubt there will be many others that haven't seen ink!

I used the same ivory linencard, from Papermill Direct, that I used on the other two, but this time I folded and cut it to 6x6.
Brown card is the same as the one I bought at PDA yesterday.
Pink pearlised card is only one sided, which I had forgotten, and I put it into the Embossalicious folder the wrong way so what you see is the debossed side!
Staped the Papermania sentiment onto an offcut of the ivory linencard and coloured with Copics. I added Glossy accents to the pink lettering but you can't see it here!
Dies used are Spellbinders and Provocraft :o)

Oooh this looks so pretty.. I think these stamps were an amazing find!

I do exactly as you do when I go into a craft shop for very little.... come out with far more than I wanted/needed! But what the heck... it's only money!

Think I have some pearlised card in the cupboard I'm clearing.... want some more? LOL!

So beautiful and elegant Jackie - I love your card very much.

I know what you mean about going into a Craft Store and suddenly you add a few things and then wow - it adds up! And you come home with a tiny little bag. I went to a Craft Store yesterday and came home with some cardstock, rhinestones and ribbon and it cost the equivalent of about 20 UK pounds for my tiny little bag. But it feels so nice to have new things - a lovely treat for ourselves :-)
