Let's Hear it for the Boys!

I chose to use a digital stamp (designed by the lovely Annie Rodrigue!) for my Dad, who runs his own import/export tobacco/pipe/cigar business. What do you think?

The quote is from Mark Twain. Dad saw this card this morning and liked it and told me a story about how Mark Twain tried to quit smoking several times, but found that it would take him months to write a few chapters when he did. When he would start smoking again he would be able to just write and write and finish up his material, and then he would throw out the previous writing that he did prior to smoking again because "it wasn't worth reading." I thought it was a cute story.

Only Young Once

But you can be immature for a lifetime! Ain't that the truth!? That's the sentiment on the latest card I've designed. I like this card because it makes me smile - not only is the sentiment true, but it's got this goofy little picture of an old lady riding one of those coin-operated kid's toys outside grocery stores! Funny, it makes me chuckle. It's a birthday card and perfect for that someone you know who may be older, but still has a rambunctious streak!!!

Hahah!! You're only as old as you feel, and I hope I never feel old. I'd rather act my shoe size, thanks... Hope this little card made you smile!

Bombshell Stamps August Challenge - "Make it Scrappy"

Hi All and Welcome Back.

This month's Pin Up Challenge was to 'Make it Scrappy' at Bombshell Stamps. Well, I couldn't make up my mind! Its too difficult to pick just one stamp! So I combined a bunch and went with a nautical theme. I hope you like it. I had a lot of fun making this scrap page! What is your favorite nautical theme Bombshell stamp?
