I am a firm believer, that if you can't get something at a discount, don't get it. I love great deals! When I shop on a clearance rack, I get the rush from finding a great deal. With that being said, there are a few exceptions.

I found the FABULOUS fabric velvet ribbon on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I bought a spool with 8 yards of this stuff for $2.97. It was regularly $4.99 a yard! Great deal eh? No let's look at the image. I found a clear rubber stamp set of 6 with cute sayings for little girls (I won't mention the name of the company) for only $1. Now I am tradtionalist when it comes to my stamps. I lean more toward the wood blocks as opposed to the clear block stamps. I have continued success with the wood blocks, and hit or miss with the clear rubber for clear block stamping but I thought I'd give it a try at such a great deal.
This stamp set was a MISS. Not only did it not stamp the image well, I had to be Hulk Hogan to get it off the plastic sheet! I thought I did everything right, I evenly inked, lined it up over the paper ( a bonus with the clear block), I even used a stamp pad to stamp on. Nothing I did got it right. Perhaps that's why it was on the clearance rack...hence Rob's motto. Oh well. Lily's Valentine is done and she'll love it!
