Can I Play Today???

I sure hope so!  I haven’t stamped since before Christmas.  Life just has been in the way.  My plan for today is to finish the January budget, pay some bills and PLAY!!!!  Here is something really cute I found on another friend’s blog!  I thought you might like it as well!

This was inspired by the children’s book, "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Joffe Numeroff. Hope you enjoy!

If You Give a Girl a Stamp
By Tracy Harp
you give a girl a stamp she‘ll want to make a card…she’ll need an ink
pad to go with it. She will spend hours pouring over colors trying to
decide just the right one to buy. In the end she’ll decide she just
can’t choose so she’ll buy them all.
Then she’ll remember she’ll
need card stock to match the ink so she’ll quickly add four packs of
assorted paper to her list, oh and white, vanilla, black and kraft!
about certainly celery, purely pomegranate, pale plum and pumpkin pie
will make her hungry so she’ll go to the kitchen for a snack. While
munching on cookies she’ll realize she needs ideas of what to do with
the stamp. She’ll go to her computer and google rubber stamping.
find a site called Splitcoaststampers. Wow!! So many techniques and
ideas and a gallery that never ends. She’ll spend hours gazing at
beautiful cards and projects. Her eyes will become dry from staring at
the computer screen. She’ll go to the bathroom for some eye drops.
the way, she’ll pass her family sitting at the kitchen table waiting
for dinner. She’ll quickly heat up some leftovers and try to pretend
she hadn’t forgotten. While talking about the days events, her son will
bring out the school pictures he had gotten that day.
That will
remind her she wanted a digital camera to take pictures of her cards so
she can start her own SCS gallery. She’ll convince hubby of all the
reasons the “family” needs a new camera. He will finally agree and
she’ll head to the store to buy one.
On her way home she’ll pass by
Joanns and remember she needs an Ott-Lite to go with the camera she
just bought. While shopping for a light she’ll see aisles of paper,
punches, embellishments and ribbon. She’ll pick out a cart full of
items but realize they don’t carry THE punch she saw used on a card she
saved to her favorites. She’ll return home and go back to
Splitcoaststampers to find out where to get THE punch.
Her search
will lead her to someone’s blog where she’ll see a Starbucks bottle
made into a cute candy container. That will remind her she has some
bottles in the recycling bin so she’ll go to the garage to rescue them
from the trash.
While in the garage she’ll see her son’s bike which
will remind her she needs to buy a new helmet for his birthday.
Thinking about birthdays will remind her she wanted to bake some
cupcakes for him to take to school.
As she walks to the kitchen
she’ll pass by the table and see the stamp. The stamp will remind her
that she wanted to make a card and she’ll probably want some…
