When I first saw this stamp set from SUink I immediately knew I wanted to make a card with this idea. It just cracked me up! Plus I always feel like a nice way to justify buying stamps is if they have a multipurpose. So this is a great Christmas set. But look! It can be used throughout the year for things like this. I will have something later this week that uses this set in a non-holiday way too.
I left the inside blank, I figured if I were sending this to someone a pic with a bun in the oven and a "congratulations" they likely know they are pregos...so 'nuff said! LOL!
Like the little bun that I drew? Can you hear the stamp companies beating down my door asking me to design stamp sets for them?! what? you don't hear anything? hmmm...me either! lol! My "bun" looks more like a muffin. Hey! there is a reason I use rubber stamps and don't hand draw my cards! LOL!
Well, I spent last evening cleaning up my craft room. Hopefully I can be somewhat more productive now. It was such a disaster! If I had put Maeve down in there, I think I would have lost her! LOL! But I won't make a New Year's resolution to try and keep it clean...that will just set me up for disappointment in a couple of weeks when it is a disaster again. ;) I don't like broken promises! Do you make resolutions?
Do you know that a year ago I was hardly stamping at all anymore? I had lost my enthusiasm and mojo. If you notice on my sidebar the blogaversary countdown is getting close to my big day. That is when Mary Jo (unknowingly) lit a fire under my stamping butt and I started a stamp blog. I said I would do her weekly sketch challenges with her. Eventually the whole blog thing starts to take on a life of its own...and I am happily stamping away again.
What do you want to do this 2009? (no resolutions though!)
