a la mode Teaser Time from My Favorite Things--You Rule

Well, I love stamping smack dab in the middle of the month. Ya'll can always bet that I am probably stamping some a la modes from My Favorite Things around that time. They have truly come to be some of "my favorite" stamps to play with. Today I've got a brand new one that will be available from My Favorite Things Tuesday night, the 15th at 10pm EST along with the new VIP Kit for March (which equals cuteness too, by the way).

This little a la mode set is called You Rule. She's a little teacher, but now that I've colored her like this, I can't help but think mine looks like a flight attendant. Maybe stamp a little airplane on the paper she's holding and I think even the sentiment could work to cheer up someone in the aviation industry (I'm sure they could use the encouragement).

I've used the new doily Die-namic from last month's release as a backdrop for her. Remember it? It's called Dizzy Doily--I think it's one of my favorites too.



Ok, well that's all I've got for now. Was it Jay Leno that quoted something like this?--"I love Dollar General. You don't have to get dressed up to go there like you do for Wal-Mart." Now that's a Class Act. I avoid Wal-Mart whether I'm dressed up or not.

Now let's talk about someone with true class--Kim, our fearless leader. She's got those of us who are sharing our You Rule a la modes all linked up over on her blog HERE. Really, ya'll should check it out. You are now free to move about the country.

SUSIE Q-TIP: When printing out digital papers in full 8.5 x 11 size, tape another color of cardstock (as long as you know if your printer can take the thickness), to your original piece of copy paper. Kraft or MFT's Fossil color is great for this. You could even just use 2 or more colored cardstocks taped onto a piece of copy paper. This way, you get a variety especially if you don't need full sheets of the digi paper and you'll only have to print once for several pieces.
