Steady


"The greatest thing about men is that they are steady.
You know where they stand.
They believe the same thing Wednesday that they believed on Monday,
no matter what happened Tuesday..."
~paraphrased from Steven Colbert


The Skipping Stones Design Team and the wonderful guest designers has another showcase of great cards today featuring a great sketch and the stamp of the month (available for only $12.95), Grunge! Check out the blog for contest details, prizes and great inspiration!

If you have a difficult time making masculine cards, Grunge is perfect set for you...even guys need cards too, right? The patterns make it so easy to create a simple and effective card.

Before you leave, I thought I'd mention the super PMS (Purchase More Stamps) sale over at Skipping Stones Design that lasts through January 22nd. There's more details on the blog, but here's a quick gist: Buy 1 set and save 5%, buy 2 sets and save 10%, buy 3 sets and save 15%, purchase 4 sets and save 20%, buy 5 sets and save 25% and purchase 6 sets OR MORE and SAVE 30% on every set you buy-no limit!!! If you ever have a problem with the checkout, email SSD with your order and a pay pal invoice will be sent to you, just be sure to mention the sale!

There's something comical about a PMS sale and a Grunge being the featured set for masculine cards. Love how you've used the woodgrain stamp on here.
