You Look Marvelo{US}!

Pin It

Happy Thursday, Crafty Stampers!

Today's Clean and Simple card project was created using a fun new stamp set from Stampin' Up and SU's "Beautiful Wings" Embosslits die. Love how this die cuts and embosses so beautifully!

I also used a bit of the new "Cherry Cobbler" card stock from Stampin' Up's upcoming "In Color" collection:

Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes! For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the marvelo{us} product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooo, last night I was hangin' out at Sheila's when her crazy cheap sister, Jill, and her loser lovely boyfriend, Jack, stopped by.

Reid-the-Wild-Child, currently on a mission to raise money for his Cub Scout Pack, cornered them as soon as they sat down.

"Aunty Jill, will you please buy a candy bar from me?" Reid asked.

"Well, no. I can't. Sorry, Kidlette, but I'm on a diet and I can't have candy in the house."

Disappointed, but not giving up, he turned to Jack and politely asked him if he'd buy a candy bar.

"Well, sure, l'il rug-rat! How much?"

"Just one dollar."

As Jack took a dollar out of his pocket, he turned to Sheila and I and said, "Ya know, every time I look at a dollar bill, I wonder if its ever been in a stripper's butt crack."


Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
