Happy HSN Scrapbooking Day

Hi my legions of fans. I've been busy watching HSN...that's Home Shopping Network to those who may have been hiding under a rock...seriously, is there anyone who doesn't know about They're starting their 32nd year and I can honestly say that I've been with them off and on for 30 of those years. I've easily made 50 or so purchases in the last 10 years. I've been satisfied with almost everything.
One of the things their buyers have improved on over the years, is their scrapbooking shows. They have become much more "with it" and have a variety of items to show. Today, they're show-casing the Cricuit with Juke Box. Yes, it's pricy, but it does seem to have all the bells & whistles a gal needs for at least a year :) . Now...don't go getting excited, 'cause I can't afford this baby. I don't own any Cricuits. But that doesn't stop me from drooling. And it goes without saying that I've tried to convince dh for years that life would be so much better if I had one. But, alas since we're both retired, with senior-type med bills and the economy such as it is and our investments such as they are, it's not an option. But, ya' know I had to have somethingj today right? So, I bought the Crafters' Ultimate Companion, which my friend and I have been oogling for a week or two on other sites. HSN's price is unbeatable even with tax & s/h. Then I bought the new CB folder bundle of 11. Figured I'd eventually get almost all of them anyway here and there, so why not put myself out of my misery and get 'em all at once.
So here's your enabling tip for the PM. There is one more Scrapbooking show left in the day. It's on in the next
one and a half hours. Go check it out on TV or on their website, if you happen to be still at work. You won't be sorry...uh, maybe your wallet will...SORRY!
Here's one of those cards that was included in my "paid project" Created with ds paper from a pad and using the EK Success punch, a CB die for the corner, Nesties labels; the cone is a $ stamp form Michaels, with a little crystal lacquer on the "ice cream" and the "thanks" is from SU's "So Many Sayings."

Hugs, Erica
