Thanks 4 Everything...

I am an admitted Pinterest addict... I came across a quote a couple of weeks ago that made me chuckle. As a teacher, I am a little particular about spelling and grammar, and this little gem said, "BEFORE. B-e-f-o-r-e, not B4. We speak English, not Bingo." Hahaha! So true!! I cringe when I think of what texting is doing to our spelling habits (though I personally admit to being the Queen of Typos)!  Well, this little stamp, has the "4" instead of "for," but I have to say it's as cute as can be, and I love it in spite of-- or maybe even because of-- that little 4. :)

This card was a quickie-- still working on the thank you notes! I love the colors of the Cruisin' argyle paper, and I am crazy for gingham. The paper lace is a Close to My Heart product from when the company was called "DOTS!" It has little tiny heart punches along the middle. I think that there are some border punches out there in craft-store-land that offer a similar effect. The ribbon is also Close to My Heart. Did you recognize the big dots? Those are hand trimmed from the gorgeous Dotty for You paper. I think the one on the left needs a wee bit more glue to tack it down. I had a little red heart I was going to attach to the top left dot, but my husband convinced me that there was already a lot going on here, and maybe in this case, less would be more. Hmmm... he's probably right! :)
