So Jazzed for You!

Pin It


Happy Thursday crafty stampers!

Today's card project was created for no-good reason using a cute stamp from Studio G and not much else:

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

Sooooooo, recently Sheila's DH, Ken, was the Best Man in his brother's wedding. Yesterday when I stopped by Shelia's, she had to show me the 'Best Man' gift that had arrived for Ken.

Sheila pulled me into the family room and nudged me toward the bookcase. There on a shelf sat a simple but elegant silver mug.

Unfortunately, the engraver made a teensy-tiny mistake as the mug read, "Best man once, a bother forever."

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

~Hugs,

Hi Deb,

Dontcha just luv those Studio G stamps. I own a ridiculous amount of 'em. Giggled over the She/Deb joke today. I sure need a giggle as I continue to go through boxes and boxes of stuff. No stampin room yet, but we're gonna go to Ikea this weekend to get some ideas. SIL & DD have big plans. I just pray they let me have some say too. :D
