Back on the Wagon!

Happy Monday folks! I hope you had a fab weekend 🙂 It is a bit ironic that I am writing a post about being “on the wagon”  while doing a challenge from the Drunken Stampers blog LOL, they have challenged us to make a card using only black and white, I took the challenge and used the sketch from 2sketches4you to make this “cheerful” birthday card:

Stamps: Inkadinkado (chandelier), SU! (happy birthday), EB folder Tim Holtz, Rub on: Royal, Buttons: Rebeca Sower, Punch SU!, Cardstock: Bazzil, GP

Here is a head on look at the card:

So the “wagon” I am refering to is the craft supply buying vairety. I do not need any more paper, dies, stamps, eb folders, ribbon or inkpads but I am always tempted by a good deal (note the brand new eb folder in this card and yesterday’s crafty loot) to make matters worse a good friend of mine was selling all of her full size SU! inkpads for a song and I always wanted them so I jumped at the chance! Honestly I am glad I did because I found awesome plans on the Rebel Inker blog to make a inkpad holder from foam-core and hubby made it for me for mother’s day!

Check out my bodacious ink pad holder:

The plan for this holder is from the rebel inker blog, click the picture to go to Stacey L King's blog for the pattern.

So now I am back on the wagon, no more new crafty supplies for me for a while (trading and borrowing is OK) but no more buying! I am always suprised how creative I become when I am forced not to get any new stuff, not to mention that my craft room stays more organized!

Thanks for reading my ramble today, til next time happy crafting!
