New Toys



Well there's nothing like getting new toys to play with... especially when they are free! I was the lucky recipient of a $300 product bonus last month (you receive these kind of things for reaching sales and recruiting goals with SU) and I spent quite a bit of time choosing what I wanted most. In the end I chose:

Ink pad Caddy (I've been wanting one of those for ages! There's one on page 151 of our catalogue if you want to see what it looks like.)
Large Star Punch and Small star punch (to use with the Nursery Necessities set and for Christmas and boy cards)
Earth Elements Markers (can you believe that I've managed all this time with only the Rich Regals set? I finally have browns and Oranges... and Old Olive!)
Cutter Kit
Stem Sayings stamp set

I chose a few bigger things (you might as well when they are free) and I cant even begin to tell you how much I love my ink Pad caddy. No more scrabbling around in my drawer trying to find the right ink pad. Now I just spin my caddy around and pick my colour straight off the rack. And it looks good on my desk!

Just showing you a quick card that I made with a couple of these new toys...The curved white piece was made by free-handing with the cutter kit - I love how easy it is to get a curved shape. I've used my new markers on the boat to get the different colours, and I used the Stem Sayings stamp in white on the dark blue background. Looks cute doesn't it? Of course the Round Scallop punch has made it's usual appearance to cut out the boat. This is a card that literally takes just a few minutes to make.

Well I've got some more playing to do. For those of you who have already put your hands up for the ribbon swap I will be finalizing it shortly, so you will hear from me. Any extra people who are interested, just email me at higgiz@bigpond.com and let em know.

Have a great day!

Gorgeous card Linda! I've always thought this sentiment would be beautiful for a baby card.
