In response to yesterday's post...
1. To get the two colors of polka dots, ink the first color and stamp. Clean the stamp, ink with the second color, and stamp so that the dots are in the empty spaces between the already-stamped dots. If you've never two-step stamped before, this isn't necessarily intuitive. Once you do it, you'll slap your forehead and wonder why you never thought of it before. At least, I did.
2. My kids came up with a plan to stop the bickering. Every time they bicker, I give them a point. If they get three points in a day, they lose screen privileges the next day. They decided they can get points for bickering, not doing what I ask of them cheerfully, or pitching fits. We shall see if it works. Today's behavior was already much better than yesterday's!
3. If you want to know why it's so cool to own an Oxford English Dictionary of your very own, click on over to my other blog, where I posted about the word grandeur this morning.
And now for today's post.
It's graduation weekend in my town, and I needed three cards for high-school graduates...one young man and two young women. Same idea, different looks!
Dude doesn't get flowers and bling, but then, I think all three young people will be far more interested in the checks than the cards, anyway, LOL!
Since all these will be delivered by hand, I felt comfortable getting bulky with them. Those buttons and paper clips might be problematic in the post, though.
Have a lovely weekend!
