That sound?? Just the sound of another weekend come and gone!! Honestly, how DOES that happen so quickly every single weekend??? And I never seem to get HALF the stuff done that I plan to!! Yikes!!! While there was a MAJOR sporting event going on downstairs on the tv there (I have never been able to "get" how you can stayed glued to a 4+-hour slow-moving game of football!), I was upstairs playing with MDS on my computer and watching old episodes of "Bones" on Netflix ... but, I digress ...

This card was a lesson in stamp-a-ma-jiggin'! I went several years stamping where I NEVER even TOUCHED a Stamp-a-ma-jig! Have NO idea how I got along withOUT one!! I can't seem to stamp "straight" to save my life!! This is quite simple (which is something you KNOW I struggle with), but I kinda like how it turned out ...

And remember a few years back when we were ALL rushing to buy these tea tins so that we could embellish the heck out of 'em??? Well, like so many things I HAD to have ... I HAD to have more than one ... which means I STILL have several in a box in my storage room, so I decided to pull one out and play with it!!

From Millan.NetAnd here is HOPING-HOPING-HOPING that Punxsatawney Phil got it right this year (apparently, he did NOT see his shadow on Saturday, which was Groundhog Day, so he predicts an early Spring). I need some sunshine and warmer temps VERY VERY BADLY!!

Be sure to tune back in on Wednesday ... the Artisan Design Team will be starting our weekly Wednesday Wow blog hops!! You won't wanna miss it!!

Punxsatwaney Phil is only right 39% of the time. If he were in SLC, he would have seen his shadow. So sunny and nice. :) Cute projects

I love your card and though you were going for plain and simple, there is nothing simple about your card! I too can rarely stamp straight, and I have the Stamp-a-ma-jig and now HAVE TO TAKE IT OUT OF THE BOX and use it...your card is totally proof of purchase for this tool. Thanks for sharing your tea tin as well!
