Winnie the Pooh

I have always had a soft spot for Winnie the Pooh ... I cannot count the times or hours my kids spent watching the Pooh cartoons when they were little ... we ALL have a bit of a soft spot for Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, Roo and the Gang! Which is why this card makes me happy ...

I have written here before how I often neglect some of my other "toys" because I am primarily a Stampin'-Up-Only kinda gal ... many demos are ... but that does not mean I do not like/have/use OTHER stuff (what my BFF Jan would call "rubbahdultery"). And in this case it is not actually stamps, anyway. I really like being able to combine stamps, diecuts, ribbons, and embellishments to come up with a finished product. It also helps me to feel justified for spending all the CASHOLA I have for all the nifty cool toys ... er, TOOLS ... I own!! AND I have been dipping into my AMPLE stash of retired (old??) patterned/designer papers ... makes me happy. So there ya have it ... Smiley from

This is for my little cousin, Sarah. She is turning 5 this week. I remember being 5 ... I loved wearing dresses and playing with dolls. (I guess I have to admit that I STILL do!) I miss my kids being little ... sigh ...

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

Well I love it!! And most of us "stampers" still stamp then cut out the image; punch images, borders... so this is just a different way of using paper to make something beautiful!! You still add lots of dimension, texture & balance. Rock on, Wendy!!
