Also, dies that match stamps. Some are useful, but many of them are more of a hassle to die cut with than to quickly cut by hand. And then I feel with all the matching dies, so many cards look alike.

Poop stamps? Wow, I never did see any of those, thank goodness!

Penny Blacks critter stamps are in a category of their own. They are cute and fun without being cutsie. In my mind they are what I would consider timeless and classic - 10 years from now they will still stand out as unique and distinctive still useable. Her designs are on the order of the old style PSX stamps (but new and fresh!). The PSX stamps are much desired now because people realize how timeless and special their designs were. Just my thoughts on differences between cute and cutsie!
