Say What?

Pin It


Happy Thursday, Crafty Stampers!

Today's card project was created using a cute rubber stamp from QKR Stampede and designer paper from October Afternoon:

I stamped my focal image on white card stock, then colored it using Copic markers and stamped the sentiment on a die-cut tag.

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the exciting product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooo, I was hangin' out with Sheila when her DH, Ken, came in to show us an article he was reading.

"See. I knew it: a study proving that women talk more than men!" he said happily, waving a magazine at us. "This study indicates that men use, on the average, only 15,000 words a day, whereas women use 30,000 words a day."

Sheila mulled this over for a minute and then remarked: "Well, sure, of course! It makes perfect sense: we use twice as many words as men because we have to repeat or explain everything we say."

Then Ken asked, "What do you mean?"

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me today ... you rock!

~Hugs,

Love it! Time to think about baby cards again. What IS it with this time of year and everyone popping out babies?!
Great cards this week. As usual, I'm flying by the seat of my pants trying to catch up on a week's worth of cards and Jill-Sheila-and-Reid-the-Wild-Child stories! But there is a distant light flickering at the end of my tunnel of insanity. Let's hope I get there before ALL my hair turns grey!
Have a good one!!
