I pounced on some Imaginesce Christmas paper that I probably won't use till next year but I was a Girl Guide once upon a time and our motto was Be Prepared so I was preparing ;D. Next I headed over to the punches...I really love the new Martha Stewart and EK Success punches and CAH had plenty to choose from...in fact too many as I changed my mind every 5 seconds. Annette wasn't any help since she kept pointing ones out that I had missed. It was great because we were the only ones in the store the whole time (an hour maybe) we were there. Margaret and Angela were very helpful offering tips and suggestions and Annette was quite excited to learn they do classes for the Cricut. Annette's husband bought her one for Christmas though I think it's only the box that's going to be wrapped up under the tree lol. Our piles (crafty ones lmao) were getting higher and higher though I think Annette won. She got a Bind It All...a pink one! and an i Top with all the bits to go with....well we had to take advantage of the 20%...it would have been rude not to. I was a very lucky girl because Annette bought me an EK Success punch for my birthday ...Thanks Annette...I did try for the Making Memories Slice but she'd turned her hearing aid off by that point! Here's what I bought including my birthday present. I also got my BF Karen her birthday prezzie but I can't show you that cuz she reads my blog.
I've wanted the 'cheese' punch since I was home last year
This is the punch Annette bought me...the line is embossed between the holes. I'll make a card using it and post it this week.
It wasn't long before we had to head and pick up Annette's daughter Eilidh but we had a great time. If we'd had the time I think we'd still be there looking, stroking, comparing.....and of course it's so much better to do this with a friend :D
