Seriously. So I thought I'd take my virgin bull dog stamp that I just needed to have (you stampers know how that goes, am I right?) and introduce it to some ink! And I made a card - no really, I did! Lookie!
Oh, my, the two dogs are off center, aka: crooked. Imagine that. And yes, when I bought the bull dog stamp, I picked up one or six coordinating sentiments. Well, I had to, didn't I?
The background paper is part of a piece of 12x12 paper from my still-mostly-full pack of pet papers that I will never in my lifetime use up. But in an attempt to make myself feel a tiny bit better, I hacked the one piece into enough pieces for 9 cards, even though I only made one. Sad, isn't it?

So, is your head spinning yet? Please, I beg of you, under no circumstances are you to ever, ever use a triple-negative in a sentence. If you do, I will hunt you down and edit your document. Oh, and if you can figure out what those phrases/sentences mean, please feel free to comment. Actually, please feel free to comment anyway; you know how we bloggers live for comments. :-)
