Sweet Memories

Pin It

Happy Thursday, crafty stampers!

Today's card project was created using stamps from Elle's Studio's "Sweet Summer" collection. I won 'em ... and lots of other fun "Sweet Summer" goodies ... on Jennifer McGuire's blog, Jennifer McGuire, Ink.

There's something about clean polymer acrylic that makes me wanna get all dirty with 'em:

KWIM? I'm lovin' these cool flower stamps ... and that fontalicious sentiment! For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the sweet product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooo, Sheila's certifiably insane wacky sister, Jill, took a part-time job at Macy's. Apparently she knows something about dressing men, because she was assigned to the Men's Department. And we thought she only knew about undressing men ... go figger.

Anyway, last night, Sheila and I decided to stop by and harass see her.

When we arrived in the Men's Department, we found Jill helping ... and I use the term loosely ... a customer:

"I'm wanting a tie that would make my boyfriend's blue eyes really stand out," the woman explained.

"Well, I really shouldn't tell you this," Jill responded, "but any tie will make blue eyes stand out if you tie it tight enough."

Thanks so much for swingin' by ... hope you have a fabulous day!

I'm loving those flower stamps too. Very cool, and the colour combination is perfect!
I've just finished catching up on 2WEEKS worth of posts. I'm never allowed to get this behind again!! Course, now the old ball and chain is coming home, so I'm going to have to get creative about why I'm spending so much time online!
