How I Almost Didn't Buy Any New Stamps!

One of the first stops after arriving in Wisconsin was the Archiver's store in Middleton, Wisconsin (adjacent to Madison, Wisconsin).  I promised myself I would not buy any stamps; just paper pads, Hero Hues, and maybe a few embellishments.  Oh, yes, and white pens!

I enjoyed browsing and gathering, mostly paper pads, Hero Hues paper, a few supplies, white pens and a few specialty papers.  I kept within my $100 budget and was rather pleased.

As I approached the check out with my stampless basket, a saleslady asked me if I had seen the new Inky Antics HoneyPop sets.  Well, it was love at first sight!



The set includes a stamp that is the pattern to cut the honeycomb paper (not included, costs extra!).  Since my granddaughter's favorite decorating idea is monkeys, I could not say no!  I also purchased the Turtle set!  I love the surprise inside the card!  Inky Antics also has an elephant and lion set (which I did not buy, thank you very much!)  Needless to say, I was no longer within my budget!

Thankfully, I had checked out before my DH finished his 9 holes of golf!  Ahhh, it is a good thing I have a part time job!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Judy, I love this post! You crack me up! It's the same thing here at home. Hubby golfs, I buy goodies! I even have to try hard to incorporate the new stuff into the old stuff so he doesn't notice. Heaven forbid if he ever asks me how much I spend, but then I guess I could ask him the same thing about golf! That must be why he's never asked. Ha!

Love your cute monkey card! I saw these too but apparently had more will power than you did! Hugs! :)

Oh, that is too funny! You were almost out the door and under budget...and then they GOT you! I can see why you loved that set and had to have it...such a sweet card, inside and out!

Enjoy it...I always remind my DH that I don't get my nails done or have any expensive hobbies like skiing, etc. (Any excuse to be able to buy more goodies!)

Oh, I missed this, Judy! What a fun post! The honeycomb looks so cool--no wonder you went over budget! And I'm sure your granddaughter will appreciate the finished result.
