This is a card that is going out to another friend…I just love it when I have the occasion to make one, and it’s not staying here. My stamper friends and I joke about this all the time – we muse that sometimes it’s hard to let go of handmade cards if you know for certain that the recipient is going to throw it away. I don’t worry about that so much any more but for those who might go there…I have a special stamp that I use on the back that warns them of all the bad things that will happen if they do throw it away. If I can actually lay my hands on that sentiment, I’ll stamp it out here so that you all can see it – it’s really cute.
Here again, I wanted to stay simple but felt I could still add something….so I cornered my DH for his opinion…..he hates it when I do this because he feels like he can’t win. He knows that in my mind I’ve really already made a choice and now he has to try to guess what that choice might be. This is the proverbial "Does my rear look too big in this outfit?" question, but in stampers language it is the "Is there something else I need to put on this card?" question. He implored me to leave the card alone….I guess that was the answer I was looking for. Honey, you win!!
Big hugs to all my stamping friends today, whether they have blogs or read blogs!!! I’ve been catching up on email, comments and questions and today I just know that stampers and scrapbookers are the best. So…is it just me or is there entirely too much new stamping stuff at one time for a person to sanely budget their purchases? Note, I said sanely….I’m still trying to do some damage here, but after a trip to Hobby Lobby today, I just had to shut my eyes…..
