BIG news stampers! Today is "No Housework" day! 'Course I celebrate that day nearly everyday, but isn't it nice to know that it's official?!?
Today's card project was created using l'il bitty inchie stamps from Inkadinkado. Sooo stinkin' cute, aren't they? They start to lose their adorableness when you're cuttin' 'em out and creating l'il mats for all nine of 'em, though.
I stamped my bird-inchies using "Indian Corn Blue," "Cranberry," and "Outdoor Denim" dye inks from Close to My Heart. If you're interested, all inks are available HERE. And I must say that while I love everything SU, I worship these dye inks. There! I've said it and I'm not sorry!
The sentiment, from Stampin' Up, was stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select card stock, then double matted. And finis! A bird-like, springlike, "how you doin'" card.
For the rest of the l'il bitty deets, check out the supply list, below.
So, this weekend, Sheila and I decided to spend the day at our favorite beach.
As we sat sunning, we saw a fisherman capsize his boat about 40 yards out.
We called out and asked him if he needed any help ... such as he could get from us.
"No, thanks, I'm okay," he answered, but he continued to hold on to his overturned boat.
So we sat back down and watched him watching us.
"Hey," the fisherman called to us, "are there any gators out here?" Uh, oh, a tourista.
"Naw, they haven't been around here for years." Sheila answered.
With that, the guy finally decided to start swimming toward shore ... at a very leisurely pace. About halfway in, he hollered, "So, how'd they get rid of the 'gators?"
"Oh, nobody did anything special." Sheila said.
"Really?" the swimming-fishing-tourist-guy asked.
"Nope; the sharks got 'em!"
WoWzA, he turned out to be a super-fast swimmer!
