Easily Offended? Quick, Look Away Now!

Pin It

I warned you ...

I think this stamp is hysterical but I certainly can understand if you feel otherwise. It's all meant in fun and no lab animals were injured or kilt in the creation of this card ... or this post ... so far as I can tell.

My BFF sent me this w-a-y kewl stamp from Paper Source months ago and I've been waiting for the perfect bit of 'something' to use with it. This bit of 'something' is a scrap of designer paper from Close to My Heart's "Notebook" collection. If you're interested, you can see the entire collection

I mounted the designer paper on an embossed scrap of card stock, added a felt heart cut out with my Large Scallop Heart Nesties, three vintage buttons, linen thread, a round tab punchie, an antique copper frame hanger and brad, and a bit of grosgrain ribbon.

And, finis!

So, last night Sheila and I attended a seminar on "Emotional Extremes." Don't ask ...

"Just to establish some parameters," said the speaker,"can someone tell me what the opposite of joy is?"

"Sadness," someone in the audience shouted out.

"And the opposite of depression?"

"Elation," someone volunteered.

"How about the opposite of woe?" the speaker asked.

Sheila shouted out, "Giddy-up!"


Have a great weekend!
