OK... Everyone else is doing it! I keep going back and forth on what my third BG stamp will be.... Floral or Simple Stripes. Which would I use more? My style.... I like my flower stamps, but I LOVE my cutesy stamps. This back and forth thing is driving me nuts! Which one? LOL!

1. Linen
2. Dots & Daisies
3.

I already have:

Print Pattern
Houndstooth
Crosshatch
Canvas
Cheesecloth
Just Jeans
Paisley
French Script

when I saw the floral in the catalog, it didn't really catch my eye, but seeing some of the work done with it, I think it's fabulous! I'm definitely getting it when I place my next order (probably in a few days). If you HAVE to, for a couple weeks or so, you can draw your own stripes if you need them, till you can get the striped one. Spring and summer are around the corner, florals will be "in"... go with the floral is my vote.

I have Floral and love it! However, I've seen some AWESOME cards with Simple Stripes (a background I never noticed before) lately. I'm also going to take advantage of the special this month and am contemplating Simple Strips. Decisions, decisions -- what's a girl to do?

I voted for Floral. It's beautiful...the catalog does not do it justice.

Floral is great! You'll use it alone, but you'll also use it with the other background stamps you have. You're going to love it.

Floral--Hands down. I just got mine a couple of weeks ago and just love it. (Wonder how I got along so long without it!) The cattie does not do justice to it. There are some beautiful cards in the gallery. You won't be sorry.

I love floral and bought it based on the gallery not the catty! Simple stripes would also make a nice background for floral sets, especially to give the look of a wall hanging. Also, by moving Simple Stripes, you can create diamonds or plaids so you get additional backgrounds. Still, if I could only chose one, it would be floral.

I was thinking simple stripes. But that's probably b/c I already have Floral and it is really pretty!

Thanks ladies! I went to my stampin' 10 group today and ended up getting Floral. If Simple Stripes is on the retired list, I will probably get it next month!
