CPS 221 Up, Up and Away Birthday

     A note to my dear friend Kristii:

             Dearest Kristii, you must stop doing this to me. Every time I think I have everything I need for my craft room, you show me how much more fun it can all be by introducing me to something new and absolutely fabulous, like Paper Trey Ink stamps.  You know I'm a sucker for fun stuff, and, being a relatively new paper crafter, it's easy to get sucked into the latest and greatest thing that might come along. I know you don't mean to do it, but you're really becoming a bad* influence on me.

     You also introduced me to Card Positioning Systems, which I am now addicted to after following a link from your blog. Here's the sketch this week:

   So, you can see this is becoming a dependency I can't control. What will be next? I look forward to whatever comes with check book in hand and an expression of grim determination.


Your Dear Friend Jessica :)

*P.S. By "bad" I mean "good and cool" (the 80's usage via the King of Pop.) I'm sure you understand.
