witticisms by Jess Witty

Back to our regularly scheduled programming...

I sorta feel like I cheated on this one. I took a card front reject {and by that I mean a mostly made card that didn't look nearly as good on paper as it did in my head}, chopped off the top and bottom of it, and stuck it down on a new card. And that made it better somehow. Trust me. I basically just added the sentiment and voila... done. And now, we interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for a personal message... Um... Nichole Heady... if you just happen to be browsing by... for the love of all that is crafty, please hear and take heed of my plea for a full-size Chamomile ink pad. Because my tiny little beloved ink spot can hardly take the full-time beating I'm giving it while inking up every stamp in my collection. There is no other color that compares... trust me, if it existed I would have found it as I traveled high and low through the depths of an entire CHA floor in search of it. Thank you.

HEHEHEHE.. I agree... love those little duo pads! Oh and I take cards apart which end up on other cards all the time :) Happy Monday to you!

And HOW! I would love BOTH of the tea dye duo in extra large size! I ink cards now and little pieces of sponge/foam flake off of the pad, eeeek! Then I ending up even liking the little dots of ink leftover after I brush away the chunks of sponge, giggle!

And your card is a simple stunner!

Just wanted to let you know that your blog posts crack me up. I sincerely hope that your fervent plea makes it to Nichole! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face and sharing today's lovely card.

Hey Jess...I made my 10MSPC. Check it out and my post for a chuckle (preferably at the post and not my card...lol).

Cheating??? Not so! That was just a good find!
