I just went shopping to Archivers with a gift card in tow. My Mother-in-law put a gift card in my Christmas stocking. Yippeee....she knows what I like! Thanks Judy.....if you read this you can see what I used it on.
I bought some paper kits ....as I can always use paper. Love paper kits/that have all coordinating papers and punch outs and alphas. I bought a few different kinds of paper kits from different companies. I also purchased some Clear stamps and Ribbon. Check it out:
Crate Paper Kits! These would be my first Crate Paper purchase. I love the colors to these papers and just wanted so bad to try them out. I couldn't resist the Christmas one: Holly Collection. I wanted to try out the cowboy collection and the Crate Avenue Collection look like alot of fun too.
Next I picked up some Daisy D Paper kit. I LOVE Daisy D products...and this paper looked so vintage just like all their other papers. I loved the tag cutouts that come with this kit. Just buying it for the tags was worth the money!
Of course, I had to pick up my favorite papers thus far........some Cosmo Cricket Paper kit. I picked up their Wonderland Collection(Christmas Papers). I only wish they had more kits to pick from....I would have gotten more Cosmo Cricket papers if they had the paper packs. The only one I could find at Archivers was this Christmas collection. IT was on my wish list tho/so i picked it up. I will have to buy the Cosmo papers from Scrapbook.com site. They had them all. Scrapbook.com is the BEST company to order from. I never had a problem with them and my stuff gets to me FAST. They have super shipping! Both Scrapbook.com and Cropaholics are great online sites to purchase from. Both have excellent shipping and services. Scrapbook.com has the best ONLINE community too. I know alot of people are 2 pea'ers but check out scrapbook.com too. They have a great gallery and store and blogs and contests.

Here are some more items I purchased with the gift card:
I love these clear stamps from Autumn Leaves! I am trying to collect many. I thought I would try these other clear stamps too. I needed some with some backgrounds to them. These looked cute from: Stampendous!
Picked up some more ribbon. Love this Twill from Foof-a-la(just LOVE the name too)! I love pattern on this twill ribbon. Seems like it would go with the Daisy D paper well?
The lavender ribbon was AWESOME buy.....it was FREE! My coupon for the HOT SPOT item at Archivers I picked out this ribbon. I always try to pick out ribbon in the hot spot area(discount) because you can always use ribbon.
Ok.....I purchased this at the end of the day. Why not! Shopping at Archivers and Starbucks.....kinda goes together don't ya think?
I also visited "Potbelly's" sandwich shop. Love that place! I Got these yummy cookies to go with my Starbucks! Great end of the day treat.....go ahead...go get yourself some...you deserve it! You know YOU DO!~hee~
