Something is happening! I've been in a bit of a crafting rut lately. . .
I think it all started when I totaled up some of my recent stamping purchases (literally on paper) and realized I was out-of-control. $1,174 out of control! Yes, this number should shock and amaze you. It's shocking and amazing - and not in a good way. You know how they say there are five stages of grief? Allow me to introduce you to my new friends: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance:
Denial - I did not spend $1,174 on stamps in a month! There's NO way! That's just insane! What kind of crazy person spends $1,174 on stamps in one month!?
Anger - Holy $#%! I spent $1,174 on stamps in a month. No $#%#$@# way! I hate you rubberstamps. I hate you designer series paper.
I hate you Mint Macaron and your little dog too.
Bargaining - Well. . . . I kind of needed those stamps. . . I mean, I do teach card making classes. Plus, it was on sale. At like half-off! I won't buy any stamps next month at the Big E Heirloom Pro Rubberstamp Festival.
Depression - Oh no, this is bad. This is r-e-a-l-l-y bad I am the single worst person in the history of E-V-E-R. No one likes me. . . No one likes my cards. . .
Acceptance: Cheer up, buttercup! So, your bank account is $1,174 lighter. . . You're not eating Ramen Noodles just yet. You've got $1,174 worth of fantastic new stamps, so you better get using them!
But. . . did I use a one of them on today's card? Nope.
You've seen this beautiful Dahlia Burst stamp set by Fun Stamper's Journey here and here!
Here are the challenge banners that inspired my card:
