Default Cute as a Bug Question

I know this is going to sound like a funny question, but I don't care, I want to know

On the big dragonfly in the Cute as a Bug set there is a slit on one of it's wings. I never noticed until I complained to my demostrator (my sister) that it is shown that way in the picture in the catalog. WHY????????? Why did they do that? It drives me nutty, I also have to try to color the spot in. I also noticed in the gallery that not everybody's has that little slit. Could somebody explain this to me.

If you don't know, you could just come up with a really good theory then maybe it wouldn't bother me so much!

Katy

Default What slit?

Do you mean the little gap in the outline of his/her wing? I looked at that as a form of artistic license.

If there is more to it, please let me know. Mine doesn't have any more of a gap than that pictures on p 148 of the catty. Did you 2 perhaps get a "bad" dragonfly?

Nancy

Default Glad you asked!

I really hadn't noticed it before, so although it didn't bother me, I'll at least be aware of the issue if any of my customers bring it up!

All my best,

Nancy

That's good that it didn't bother you, I don't know what my problem is. I will eventaully get over it, but I'm still in the glaring at the big dragonfly stamp phase...It'll pass...I'm just a little nutty! I am sitting here singing the Nut Song. Everybody knows the Nut song. It was written for me!

Call myself up on the phone
Just to hear my golden tone
Ask myself out on a date
Pick me up at half past eight
I'm a nut, I'm a nut

That one??

And, It is supposed to be the wings overlapping themselves. Wings are transparent on bugs, so that's why you see the overlapping lines or "slit"

Close, that must not be the Michigan version...

Called myself on the phone
Just to see if I was home
Asked Myself On a Date
Said to be Ready at half past eight

I"m a nut, I'm a nut...

Took myself to a show
Sat right down in the very first row
wrapped my arms around my waist
got so fresh I slapped my face.

Is that the one you know?

Okay, I still don't like the slit, but I suppose the reasoning is o.k. (still just looks like a slit to me!)

Now I'm trying to remember the other verses:

I can sing and I can dance
I wear ruffles on my - OOPS!
Boys can take another guess
I wear ruffles on my dress

I'm a nut, I'm a nut

I'm a little n-u-t
Just as cute as i can be
I can sing and I can dance
I wear ruffles on my pants

We also cluck after I"m a nut (clucking by sticking your tongue on the roof of your mouth, not clucking like a chicken), but again, I've been told I'm the only one that does that!

KatyLynn, you're not the only one who clucks! I'm going to camp with a bunch of wild-eyed, wooley girls next week and they all cluck through that song! It's half the fun of singing it!

I'm an acorn small and round
lying on the cold, cold ground
No one wants to pick me up
Just because I am a nut

I'm a nut, I'm a nut

Oh yea! I am not the only clucker around!!!

My mom tried to teach me the acorn version when I was a kid, not the "naughty" version that I sing now!

I'm sorry that you have it stuck in your head, you can try singing another song! I know many other fun songs if you need me to sing them to you! heh

My goodness! That "slit" is teeny, tiny....at least on my dragonfly....I have stamped, colored, and used it on that cutie a lot and never noticed it. I vote for the artistic license...gives the little guy some character.

Ya know what I like about this site? I'll tell ya... the thread starts out as a stamp question and the next thing ya know everyone's singing a nutty song. How fun!!! Stampers are the best people.

The slit is not teeny tiny on my dragonfly...it is HUGE!!!! Okay, maybe not huge exactly, but bigger then I like it... I suppose artistic license will do, but it doesn't stop me from pouting a little now and then.... I had almost forgotten about it and simply have been singing the nutty song (and clucking of course), but SOMEBODY had to remind me! Just kidding Maybe I got a defunct stamp.....that's a fun word, defunct..... if it is a word? Okay, back to singing the nutty song pretending like there is no slit in my dragonfly!
