For When He Just Doesn't Get It ...

Pin It

Happy Thursday hoarding card-makers!

Today's card project was created using an unmounted stamp I've had for at least 10 years ... and sadly, this is the first time its seen ink. I know it's okay to mention this to you ... 'cuz I know that you have those stamps too.

So, for it's maiden voyage I created a really simple l'il anniversary card for my sweet cousin and her hubby:

I wish I could tell you who manufactured this stamp ... but I can't. Do you know?

: My readers are the best! Ann has informed me that this stamp is from Sunday International; thanks Ann!

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

Soooooooooo, I went over Sheila's yesterday for a quick visit. When I arrived, it didn't take more than a second and a half to realize I'd stumbled in to one of their l'il arguments.

"I'll leave." I volunteered, heading for the door.

"No, no, stay, I'm ready to make-up now ... the thrill has gone out of the fight." Sheila said.

"Okay," Sheila said, turning to her DH, "I'll admit I'm wrong, if you'll admit I'm right."

"Agreed." Ken responded. "Ladies before gentlemen."

"Okay, okay, I'm wrong," Sheila said begrudgingly.

To which Ken replied happily, "You're right!"

Thanks so much for stopping by today ... I really appreciate it!

If you ever figure out who made that stamp, let me know. I need one of those!! The military reunions you see on TV are not the fairy tale the media would have you believe. My husband has come home, dumped his crap everywhere and proceeded to live life like he has a personal maid to clean up after him. On second thoughts, maybe I don't need that stamp. The hammer alone will do...
