American Goodies!

Lots of you have been asking to see what I bought back with me, well here it is...
Starting with cardstock & paper, 36 page 12"x12" Tim Holtz pad was an amazing buy at $6.99 which is £4.36
The 12"x12" Country Christmas pad which is 30 pages of card & 30 pages of paper was just $10.49 after using a voucher and the 12"x12" Kraft paper/card (which I've found difficult trying to get here in the UK) was just $5.95 a pack and a 8"x11" pack was $3.95

I think I may have gone over board with the ribbons, lace & cord
I love this little collection, they were mostly $1 each, just a few cost $1.99 (which is £1.24) even those spools of pearls & lace cost a dollar each.
These were great buys too, those two sets of nesties cost just $10 & $12 each with the wonderful 50% vouchers you get at Michaels
the sizzix die was $10 too.
Here we go...all the little things...
snowflakes, pearls, brads, buttons, cones & berries, bells, flowers

twine, wooden hearts, white pearls, bridal brads & leaves
TH paint

tin of flowers, 2 punches ($4.99 each, which is £3.11 each)
sparkly leaves & berries and sweet little gingerbread cookies for cards
12 copic pens, tiny cotton spools & gingerbread men & cutters, candy canes
and gorgeous holly leaves
oh and I couldn't forget this kind of candy too
Hope you like my bargains, I would like to point out I did have a birthday whilst I was there so I was bought quite a few things 
I'm not totally greedy :o)
 Luv & hugs
