Compulsive Stamp Shopper

Peek Over (Inky Antics) is another stamp that I’ve had for sometime but never used. I know I’ve mentioned this before and probably sound like a broken record, I have a bunch of stamps that have never been inked.

Currently I have a stack of never used Inky Antics sitting on top of Jakes dog crate and another stack of Penny Black, Great Impressions, and Sarah Kay on my desk. Oh my gosh, my cabinets… in my cabinets, I have acrylic trays with more Inky Antics, Happy Hoppers, House Mouse, Gruffies, Great Impressions and other wood mounts that haven’t been used. And if that’s not enough, I have drawers with remounted Stampin’ Up, The Angel Company and Close to My Heart stamps.

One snowy day I’m going to go through all my stamps, pull out the never inked ones, put those in a special place and make myself use those. I’m going to have to set some kind of goal/challenge for myself to quit buying. I’m sure Bryan will be thrilled… ugh! Am I the only with this problem?!

Okay, back to the card. The layout for this card came from Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 196. I made my card 4.5 x 4.5, so I could use this image since it’s a bit smaller. All the cardstock and designer paper is from the Caprice Reflection Kit (Close to My Heart), Caprice is easily turning into my favorite designer paper. I better get stamping using those unused stamps (wink), thanks for visiting ~ Jovi
