You know how sometimes you just do something purely for kicks?  Because it simply makes you smile, and laugh out loud?  Purely for fun?

I did that today. (grin!)

I was playing today with the A Muse polka dot mondo Monograms, and wanted to make a card with the "u".  If you needed to select one universally versatile letter, in addition to the one that represents your name, of course, get "u"It ROCKS!

So, as many of you know, I love A Muse’s chicken, too . . . 

So, where am I goin’ with this?  (at this point, you’re either highly irritated with me, for funnin’ around, or curious, bwa ha haaaaaaaaaa!)

Well, as I sit here be-boppin’ to John Mayer’s "No Such Thing", I hope the design below will encourage you to play with y’er rubbah . . . and, I do mean that with great sincerity! (chuckle)

Chickenup
Chicken, Solid Dot, Polka Dot Monogram "U", Orange Crush Band Note Card all by A Muse; Karen Foster Snap Stamps (Mini formal, 1/8") for sentiment; Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Rouge; Memories Black Ink by Stewart Superior; Brilliance Pearlescent Yellow by Tsukineko; Ribbon by May Arts; Mini Glue Dots

This just cracked me–I do so love a card that cracks me!

I had purchased some Snap Stamps and my first use of them got me what I wanted, which pleased me, BUT, it was rather exhausting to assemble all the letters to say it . . .  (see the "I love you more than chocolate" design of some weeks ago)

Being somewhat on the slow side, I decided I should prolly give it yet another go; with practice, I could get faster, eh?!  ROTFLMAO!  And, this one did go faster–it dawned on me that during my first use, I kept looking at the rubber and trying to read the letters backwards, instead of the index on the top of the letters, as I worked . . .  Make no mistake:  I can be quite the moron at times . . . (insert rolling eyeballs)

Nevertheless, as I sat here groovin’, it put me in the frame of mind to not care how long I spent messin’ around, nor be concerned with the outcome . . . it wasn’t about making something "pretty", or  intricate, for submission, or anything deep . . .  it was about mood, feeling, and saying exactly what I wanted to say . . . just for kicks . . .

And, giggles, of course . . . (wink!)

I think I need to listen to music more often, as I stamp . . .
