at least I will have in the next few days. Thanks to my stash emergency email to Caz, I managed to find not only the Momento Dye Ink in, but also the coveted Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. Thanks hun, you always come up with the goods!
In fact, I also got the Rich Cocoa Momento as well as the Tuxedo Black from them, Charmed Crafts. I can’t wait to try them out. The Palette Noir works quite well, but the only bugbear I have with it, is the fact that like most Palette ink pads it tends to be on the dry side. I’m a juicy kinda gal, if you know what I mean!
as I have imagined it in my fluffy brain – a scrummy Tim Holtz stamp file. I popped over to Scrapbook Sisters yesterday, and as it looked lonely on the shelf by itself I had to bring it down. They had lots more, but sold out really quickly.
The only tiny bit of disappointment is that it doesn’t have a handle on the spine, but truthfully most of the time that won’t matter one jot. It came with 5 of the stamp storage sheets inside, but a got an extra pack. As this particicular beauty is being used for my Toodles & Binks stamps, and no others will be allowed to creep in.
The way I justified it to myself was that I can’t tout the T&B wares around retail shops without something smart to show them off now can I?
I also picked up some lovely pearls, a cuttlebug embossing folder (disappointingly not the Swiss Dots one that I covet), some Bazzill Just the Edge Cardtock Strips in bright yellow, a small 7g’s tag book, and a large acrylic Tag Book book, oh and a Papercrafts mag from the States. I really just went looking for Momento ink, but you know what it’s like!
I shall have to order the Momento on line and also get myself that Swiss Dots embossing folders – for that I can blame Adele, she uses hers to such effect, that I want one.
I’ve been seeing a lot of stiching around again recently, and whilst I have a nice large sewing machine upstairs in the cupboard, that’s the problem, it’s large and heavy. Do I need one of the lil’ darlings for my birthday?
Actually, I’ve forgotten to colour in his face, must do that.

Also used Sakura in blue and Pearl and Black Pearlidoodes, Glossy Accents
Actually, Suzy inspired me to use the glossy accents, check out her wonderful blog (especially if you’re into COPICS and beautiful, beautiful artwork).
Ohhh, and just a tip when using glossy accents, make sure it’s completely dry before you put it in a scanner with the lid loaded with heavy stuff – I’ve just done it, and it’s flippin’ annoying – arghghgh!
so, I to cut down on the calories, but treat myself big time to make up for the lack of time for me time – which is basically crafting! – I treated myself to blackberry ……. but of the metal, shining variety, a lovely, lovely and very pink Blackberry Pearl.
