Always Be Yourself; Everyone Else is Taken

Pin It

Happy Stump Day, Hampers ... hope your week is flyin' by!

Today is the final day of Stampin' Up's! Sale-a-bration ... if you've been waiting to take advantage of the FREE product with your $50.00 purchase, today's the day. Just sayin' ...

Today's dotty card project was created for no good reason ... other than my fervent desire for some beach weather ... using a cute l'il digital image by Bee Crafty:

I colored this "Whimsical Girl" image with Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS, added some dotty DP, stamped a silly sentiment, added some twill tape and two photo corner punchies. Easy-peasy-ocean-breezy! Here's hopin' ...

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo; for all of the heart-pounding product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooo, yesterday Sheila and I were hangin' around yakkin' about diets ... and dieting ... when her dippy sister, Jill, stopped by.

"Okay, well I think women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously educated, well-informed, and well-adjusted." Jill posed.

"Oh, good news, Einstein!" Sheila sneered, "'Well, then, beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, 'you go girl, lookie how smart you am.'"

Thanks for stopping by ... hope you have a great day!
