Did I spell that correctly? Grandeur? It doesn't look right. I'm a visual speller who is far too tired to pull out her magnifying glass and Volume One of the two-volume, tiny-print Oxford English Dictionary tonight. (If you don't have one, get one. It's way better than electronic spell checkers.)
You see, I spent all day dealing with my boys who, at 12 and 9, seem to think it's okay to call each other idiots and liars and jerks. Refereeing is exhausting.
It was the first day of summer break.
Just 84 more days until school starts.
I need coffee. Lots of coffee. And chocolate. Oh, yes. Chocolate. Noise-cancelling earphones would be nice, too.
Anyway, back to grandeur, or delusions thereof. You see, when I made today's cards, I "discovered" a neat trick with using PTI's first Polka Dot background set. It's laid out so you can stamp TWO colors by stamping it twice. Like this vision of fun in pink and orange.
Or this, if you prefer your colors greener and bluer.
This set has been out for a couple of years at least. I bought it shortly after it was available. And when I discovered this AMAZINGLY COOL TRICK earlier this week, I felt like the smartest stamper on the planet.
But I know that's not true. Others have definitely noticed how easy it is to two-step stamp with this set. But the giggling with glee I did a few days ago must be shared.
I. Totally. Rock.
See? Delusions of grandeur on a Thursday night.
