New toys…

Howdy, friends! Happy Sunday to you… although it is almost over now. I had a super long “to do” list today, but I’m trying to be better about the old blog-o (I know I’ve said that before… but I’m trying!) Today I was actually working on some Christmas gifts… including a My Digital Studio digital scrapbook for my brother’s race at Seekonk Speedway earlier this year… among other things.

I used Contempo Christmas stamp set, Sanded background stamp, Woodland Walk DSP, the ornament punch and Wild Wasabi as the green. Now on to the title of this post… Guess what I got on Friday?

Today is going to be a quick post as I’ve got a ton of things to do on my day off. Lots of shopping errands. I’ve already been a good girl and cleaned my bathroom (which was way overdue) and finished the laundry. I’ve also got some planning and creating to do later tonight, too. I do want to let you know, though, that Stampin’ Up has added over 200 items in their clearance rack section of my demonstrator Web site. There are some fantastic
