2nd Hand Treasure and a Giveaway!

It was the annual second hand "stamps and stuff" sale at Bizzy B today. 

Customers/vendors can offer whatever supplies they want to get rid of, the store provides a location for the shopping to take place and the rest of us can take home some pretty amazing bargains as a result.

There was quite the selection of goodies:

I picked up a few things, like these large font alphabet stamps for just $5.00:

a set of six Somerset Studio magazines for only $5.00:

and a bunch of new rubber stamps (these 5 for $20):

including these 4 cute little ones, which I got for only $3.00 for the set:

For those of you who couldn't make it to the sale, I'm giving away these two stamps - a foursquare botanical design and a border strip design.  If you are interested in receiving them, leave a comment on this post and I'll use a random generator to draw a winner on March 1st.

Of course, I had to put some of my new supplies to work right away, so I made this journal page soon after I got home from the sale.  The theme was "green", which I used for today's photo in the February Photo-A-Day Challenge:

Wow. What a haul! I used to have tons of stamps. Then I gave them all away. Now I wish I still had them as I love to use them in my designs again. So I am amassing quite a collection again. These are great! I love the page that you did. It makes me long for the fresh dew kissed green of Spring!
Enjoy the day.

Those stamps would look great on journal pages. I just did a bunch of green journal pages. I'll come up to Toronto to get them if I win. (Kidding.)
