Just for fun


I really wanted to use this stamp shop again (I've only used it ONCE!) I don't even have a reason to send it. Maybe I'll send it to someone who leaves me a comment today :) The colors in the photo aren't so great; sorry. The colors of the ribbon are really beautiful, but look so dark here. The wide ribbon on the bottom is a beautiful grape color. The thin ribbon layered on top complements this with small stripes of purples, green, brown and yellow. I received this ribbon at the AP 2007 event at my LSS, Angela's. It is by Strano Designs and it is marvelous ribbon, too. I hope you all are ready for a happy Monday. I am trying to get through Harry Potter, and, unfortunately, it is hard to find time to read it. Yesterday, I folded laundry while reading a chapter, so this week I will look forward to doing laundry!

Cute card! I just called Amuse last week and ordered that stamp along with both sentiments. I thought the same thing..."if I made a card with it, who would I send it to?" Oh well, I just have to have them because they're so cute. Now I have to go see if the new releases are posted on the site yet. I'll be checking all day 'til they are. ~Penny

Too funny! As soon as I saw the card (and before I read your text), I said... okay, I NEED that stamp. But, yeah, who'm I gonna send it too? Well, how 'bout next time the kids or work or something are driving me crazy, I can whip up a card and give this to my hubby (or my boss? LOL!).

It just occured to me that a great use for that stamp would be for thank you cards to include with a swap to the hostess (or participants)! whaddya think? :)

Pick me! I'd love to receive one of your cards! I've been visiting your blog since you were a guest designer at A Muse blog.

Hello-

this is a great card. I love that new stamp shop stamp and the sentiment.

I was thinking about getting that stamp, but then I thought, what would I do with a card made with that? Of course, that has not stopped me before.
