I chuckle as I write that as my title. In university, I had an Irish professor who used to have a woolly stamp--yup a woolly stamp...the word WOOLLY--he awarded them to people who went on and on about something without a clue--like essay questions and essays (I was awarded two--go figure?!). By the way, I point out that he is Irish because whenever I see that word I hear it in his accent. Ok, now you must be wondering why I am going on this tangent (do I get another WOOLLY award?)'s because I wanted to share a simple card full of WOOLLY!

paper: kraft (SU!), basic black (SU!), blue bayou (SU!), stamper's select cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
ink: whisper white (SU!), colorbox queue (clearsnap), black (pallette)
stamp set(s): My Punny Valentine (Papertrey Ink), Grid Paper Backgrounder (CHF)
accessories: Nestabilities (Spellbinders or Ellen's Store), Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon (SU!), black gingham ribbon (SU!), corner rounder (SU!) dimensionals (SU!)

I have had quite a lot of fun playing with this whimsical set. It is not typically a set that I am drawn too but I couldn't resist the cute images and now I am SOOO happy I own it. Oh and of course I had to buy the companion set too (Year Round Puns)--those verses were irresistible.

Have you been to Nichole's blog today? Only five more days until the next PTI release--this sneak peek is juicy! As always I eagerly watch the posts and await the moment for purchase. I have to tell you, the release parties are such a hoot. Especially when Cammie is in the forum *lol* If you haven't read the PTI Forum over at SCS, then you may not be aware that PTI will be holding the release party over at the PTI forum from now on as they will no longer be in the member companies forum. Read more here.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

Adorable. May I be so bold as to say that I think YOU should be selected to be on PTI's design team. Your work is perfect for that company!!!

Alli, your little guy is so adorable! Love him!

What a darling card.

And I have to say that my son's friends call him "Wooly" because of our last name. So your title made think of all these fun teenage boys that are constantly at our house.

I just came across your blog and look forward to seeing your beautiful work.
