Well, a while ago, I clicked on the Ebay app icon on my phone, and got sucked in to all THAT entails. I have now resigned myself to being a die-hard Papertrey Ink skulker, and Amuse Studio is up on the list, too. Others will follow, I'm sure....
I lose WAY more auctions than I care to mention, and I find myself "watching" things and forgetting to bid at all, but I HAVE come away with a couple of fun things.
I won (I won! I won!) the Birthday Basics stamp set and dies for a reasonable price (which I don't remember), and I LOVE them! The garlands and the balloons are terrific, and it all makes me happy. Just like anything that comes with a matching die.
I made this--
This one went to Charlie's brother George for his birthday last week. I really like the bright colors popping off the dark grey, and the darker sequins are so fun. I LOVE these candles. Can't you see these garlands and the candles being used for Christmas and Hanukkah cards, too?
So, to continue with a theme, I made this--
I think this would have been much more successful on a card base that was anything other than the kraft. I don't know....It just leaves me kind of flat. The white panel is too big, there are too many colors going on with the sequins...I'm just sort of "meh" about this one.
I DO like the big, "so full of fun they're about to pop" balloons, however! I may have to attack this one at some point for a Friday Fix card. (Remember that short-lived series here on the blog?)
So, I'm back to Ebay to find more goodies! Actually, I better get my butt into the craft space and make some Christmas cards! I am SO behind!
Thanks for stopping by!
