Got me some stash!!!

Today, I took Rhi's advise & went stash shopping to calm my frayed nerves...
I didn't get a great deal as there is no one round here that sells good papers such as Doodlebug & those rather lovely Cherry Arte, which I haven't had the pleasure of owning yet!!!!!
I can get my hands on Sara papers & Papermania, but if I want something natty such as K&Co, or anything else then it has to be internet shopping & I do so love One Purple Cow.......
Kathy mentioned the papers used on the men's card with pink ribbon. I adore those Cosmopolitan papers, but really wanted the pink colourway...could not be found for love nor money or I might have been a devil & used then as well as the ribbon.......

These flowers are called Just Pots Funky Flowers. They each contain 65 flowers in 3 sizes, & cost me £2.99 per pot. I adore the little tiny screw lidded pots & can think of a few uses for them once empty...fill them with more flowers from my Big Shot (once santa brings it.. hint hint santa..)
I got some self covered buttons as they are always a useful addition to a craft box..got some fab Xmas fabric remnants last year I haven't used yet.
The eyelets are a mix of white & silver snowflakes & white snowmen, they were £1.76. I got the silver bauble stickers, 89p, for some quick cards & the Do Craft Scrapbook mag £1.
I recently got some new brads in metallic colours & Christmas colours. I collect them like a magpie....
Tonight I made a Decoupage Xmas card which I can't take a photo of yet as my camera batteries went flat just as I was taking some photos of my door keys.
Door keys, I hear you ask??????? Yes, for my BOM, I want to scrap a page about my awful day when I lost the keys to my castle.... It is almost completed so those camera batteries better hurry up & "cook"!!
