Back when I jumped at the chance to buy stamps (a no-brainer around here) to help homeless kitties, I told Lydia I did not want anything in return. Heck - I got me some STAMPS! What more could a girl ask for (for what more could a girl ask ... ???) ? In the end, though, Lydia wore me down, and today my prezzie arrived! Lookie!
[Please excuse the bad lighting. It is a theme I carry through all the pics in this post. Sorry.]
First, I must show you the handsome packaging. Lovely, of course. Note to self: Look for smaller card boxes at clearbags.com. I have card boxes, but they are fatter than these ....
Here is card #1. This is the one stamp of the three offered that I did not get. Isn't she cute? But me being me, and with the frequency I find myself using snarky sentiments, I just could not see that she'd get much ink, ya know?
Card #2. I have this one and the first time I used it I stamped him/her on patterned papers and made my version of a Warhol-esque 4-square card. This kitty has a lot of possibilities. And attitude.
Card #3 - MADDIE! This is the stamp Lydia designed, and she is named for Lydia's cat, Maddie. The first time I used it I colored it to look like Lydia's other cat, Splotchy. This card is actually from a card pack you can order here. It is glossy and sassy!
Card #4 - Four sassy Maddies. Cute, cute, cute, and cute!
The Maddie stamp is definitely my favorite! :-) This past Saturday, I think I sold the card that had her with the sentiment: Bite Me. I thought it was perfection, and apparently so did my customer! :-)
I think I will go store my prezzie in a safe place. LOL! I could put it in The Other Room! I'd NEVER find it again! Ahem. I meant to say that I have no immediate plans to use these, but I do want to thank Lydia for them.
So if you'd like some cute kitty stamps where the sale proceeds go to help homeless dogs and kitties, then I ask you to GO SHOP!
