I Can Stop Any Time I Want!

Pin It

I just love this stamp! Did I mention that before? Come Fall, I find myself using it over and over. Don't worry; I can quit usin' any time I want ...

This is a super-simple design to CASE. I used a stamp positioner to stamp my sentiment on a strip of pumpkin-colored card stock, then distressed the edges.

I loaded my loverly old stamp with Versamark, then tapped on Close to My Heart dye inks in "Sunflower," "Garden Green," and "Hollyhock," and embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut out the image, and a scallop edge mat, then mounted the image using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added some metal arrow photo turns and some terracotta brads ... easy-peasy and ready to serve in just ... 22 minutes!

So, the DH went to the doctor the other day for his annual physical. In passing, he mentioned to his doctor that he had a song stuck in this head ... and had for a couple of days. I hate it when that happens ...

The doctor asked him which song.

The DH told him it was an old song called, "The Green, Green Grass of Home."

Suddenly serious, the doctor told the DH that it sounded like 'Tom Jones Syndrome'.

"What?!? Are you kidding?" the DH asked, then, " ... is it rare?"

"Well," his doctor replied, "it's not unusual."

No you can't :-) Very nice colors and stamping. If you did orange mat on the brown side, it would have stood out more, granted you like standing out more.
