Simple Birthday? Thank You

I am a HUGE fan of the
"Simple Birthday Thank You" stamp by Stampin' Up!!
I love using this image for more
than just the "thank you" for which it was intended.
I usually "MASK" the words before stamping
or cover the word portion with DSP (patterned paper.)
However, my friend, Greta may have just topped all
with her take on using this image WITH the words present!
At a recent stamp club,
I told her to just pay for her order next time.
She sent her check along with this adorable card!
I LOVE how she used the "Thank you for the..."
and filled in with "extra time to pay my bill."
Is that not a HOOT?!
I was so crackin' up!!!
Thanks for the chuckle, Greta, as well as the great idea!
I now see this image (WITH words)
being used for all sorts of things...
"Thank you for the..."
"shoulder to lean on."
"helping hand."
"new baby dinner."
on and on are the ideas!

Post It Note Pad Cover

So I took my
Perfectly Shaped Build a Book
Mini Scallop piece by
and sliced away!
I love using these pieces for mini albums!
They work perfectly for all sorts of little books!
But I also enjoy thinking outside my box
so I like to take my Build a Book pieces
and play around a bit
just to see what I can come up with
other than a mini album.
Today's Build a Book piece
delivers the cutest little note pad cover,
don't you think?!

The first photo shows how it looks without its band.
(I used a brown hairband... inexpensive and pretty too!)
Wouldn't this look adorable sitting on a desk?!
And the photo above shows the note pad
WITH the band in place.
Pop it into the purse and you are ready
to brag as well as take notes!  LOL
You will see below just how I trimmed my
Mini Scallop Piece
to create my note pad cover.
The cover folds around the top of the note pad
and down about halfway of the back.
Then I covered the back
completely with a 3x3 piece of
Chocolate Chip card stock.
Check back soon to see what I come up with
using the remaining pieces of my
Perfectly Shaped Build a Book pieces.
