Potty Mouth

Got your attention, didn't I? So I NEVER would have imagined how much fun it was to stamp with a toilet stamp. Didn't know they made such a thing, didja? Well, lookie HERE, and you will see the oh-so-fun Gina K stamp set called "Way to Go" that I borrowed from my friend Kelly. I was playing around with it this morning, just "going with the flow," you know.... sorry, couldn't resist. Anyway, here are a few that I came up with.



If you click on them, you can see them bigger. The sentiments with this set are so funny! On these cards I used "There's no stalling. It's your birthday again." and "It's your birthday! Have some good clean fun!" I even tried stamping the toilet paper roll on actual toilet paper on the first two cards... it didn't turn out like I had pictured, because (duh!) it ended up being really tricky to glue down. Oh well! Oh yeah, I also fringed the edge of the toilet bowl cleaner so it would poke up and have texture. One of these is for my dh for his birthday next week. We have a running toilet paper "joke" at our house, so I know he'll get a kick out of it!

On a "cleaner" note, I had a couple of friends over to stamp last night. Fun stuff! I made a cute little card for another friend who is about to adopt a little boy. I borrowed a Papertrey set called Bitty Baby Blessings for this one. What a cute set! Check out the link to the left for Papertrey Ink if you have never seen these awesome stamps!

Finally, I will leave you with a card I made this morning with another borrowed Papertrey set, "Green Thumb." This one was so much fun to make! I finally used that flowered ribbon I've had stashed away for several years. Can I just tell you how FREEING it is to be using all my contraband, and not just limiting myself to SU!???


We are having a lovely day here in Ohio, with a current temp of 65 and only a high of 70! We just took the baby for a walk and now he's napping, which is why I'm able to share all of this with you! :-)

Have a terrific Tuesday and happy stamping!!

What fun cards! Those toilets are so funny!

How do you get your card recipes to be in such small print? I have been trying to do that!
