Virginia GIVES THANKS!

 A giveaway--details at the end of this post!
As a stamper, I often try to save my craft money to buy new stamps, inks and card stock. The ornate and beautiful ready-made embellishments seem like a luxury item to me. I do buy them when I find the embellishments inspiring.
 Let's just say, I buy them when I want to copy/duplicate the ideas and design! Well, lucky for me! The new stash from the Gallery Idol prize came with some beautiful ready-made embellishments (new TOYS!!). Today I am putting some into use!
thanks bunches
I am entering this for The Ready-made Embellishments Challenge
