A case for using the Stamp-a-ma-jig


A pretty card ruined by a misplaced sentiment. Why didn't I use my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig?

Could it be:
a. The little black cat that is giving me love bites on my feet?
b. Is the tool SO complicated that its use would make one wary?
c. Is it 10:20 PM on a Sunday night and I was just too lazy to bring the trusty tool out?
d. Has the Stamp-a-ma-jig been lost to the piles of clutter on my stamp desk?

The answer is C (although D is not too far behind). Don't you hate it when an otherwise pretty card is botched by the misplacement of a sentiment? Oh well...I'm too tired to start it over so I'll just live with it. The card layout and colors and cased from a drop dead gorgeous card made by the very talented Beate Johns (I'll post a link to the specific card later. Right now I've got to start packing my lunch and getting ready to leave for work).

Happy Wednesday!

I agree, Linda - usually if I make mistakes on my card it can be attributed to the fact that I was too darn tired at the time to do it properly! LOL!

This is gorgeous! I didn't even notice the saying mistake until you pointed it out. How funny.

I really do think it is beaut-i-mous! :)

Gosh, this is so pretty, Linda--I don't think I'd say it's ruined. I sure know what you mean about hurrying and cutting corners, though. You're back to those early get ups for work and it puts limitations on your time, for sure. I do think your card is beautiful!
