You Perk Me Up!

I have so many Stamping Bella stamps - most of them older ones that I purchased second-hand - and I rarely use any of them. Why is that? I really don't know. I think they have a lot of really cute ones. So I had a lot of fun pulling out that container and sorting through them to find a Stamping Bella image to use. I ended up choosing....

Perk Me Up Peeps

I went with a pocket card because I had a packet of Starbuck's Iced Coffee Mix that I wanted to include in the card. But once I got the card made, I was afraid to put the coffee mix in it for fear it would put too much pressure on the card and cause the sticky tape to let loose.

I love the sentiment... You Perk Me Up!

Jeanette, your card is precious! Love the images and papers! It's fun to rotate stamps in and out of use, as they seem like when we use them again!
