I also got myself the latest Tim Holtz distress inks, so now I have a full collection yet again! ♥ Absolutely gorgeous colors!
I've bought 9 of my missing ElfQuest albums (the old norwegian edititions) from a second hand bookstore in Trondheim, Wangsmo's Antikvariat, and I've enjoyed so much to read them again. I LOVE theese elfs, so facinating and beautifully drawn. Wish I could have them as rubberstamps as well - now that's an excellent idea!!! Wonder if I shall ask the Pini's? Visit the elfs at ► ElfQuest.com You can even read the comic books online!
I was drawn a lucky winner march the 30th. on the That's just so cute challenge #7., and I got the prettiest metal embellies ever in the mail a week ago, from KortHobby!
And then I got an incredible RAK from Trish aka. Stampi from Scrappin till the cows come home - check out her blog, she's very talented & so kind ♥ Just look at the sweet card & yummy goodness she sent me! She's in for a stamping good treat from me too, if the ash-cloud from Iceland settles and the planes are in the air again! We haven't had any mail for days now, only the newspaper - and that's no fun...
EDIT: Yahoooo!!! I've just won this GORGEOUS Sweet Pea 'Soft Goth Night' stamp on Debbies Passion For Craft Blog! [Received 28th of April - thanks!]
I'm still waiting on some yummy treats: I'm getting a set of beautiful 'Ornate distressed corner brushes' by Asmaa, in the giveaway drawn on march 31st. from AI Factory. Check out their shop for awesome digi-stamps! Hope I get theese soon so I can join in the fun on the AIF challengeblog :)

And I'm also getting All night Media Stamps from DT Sarah at Stamptacular because I won on challenge #48 on march 7th. So fun to have something nice to look forward to in the mail instead of yucky bills.. :)
Edit 23/4: Yess! All night Media stamps received! :)
Edit 3rd. of June: AiFactory brushes set received! -> it was apparently sent the first time around to my email, but bounced! And here I thought they forgot about me!
