Default I went into Hallmark- I don't know why!!!!!!!!!

Since I am a lapsed Catholic I need some confession time here... it's been a long time since my last confession...

I walked in just looking to see what ornaments where on clearance- I swear! - then I decided to look at the cards just for kicks. Shocking, I know. It was so frightening I almost had to sit down, but I was too scared to sit down. All those 1D bland-colored, lifeless, impersonal cards! What a waste of beautiful paper and potential. Why do people buy those things- WHY!? I might need to go into therapy.

There is one thing I love Hallmark cards for..... ideas for sentiments inside my cards! I keep my favourites from the ones that I get from others, just in case I need something later on

Yes, I always say Hallmark wishes it could make such nice cards. They probably look on SCS for ideas, hehe
Hey, Nancy nice new avatar, looks good!

The thing that always shocks me most when I go into card shops is the PRICE!

Naturally, buying a dozen stamp sets, countless ink pads and a huge stack of card is a lot cheaper.

Sometimes if I have a pen and paper with me, I write down some of the sentiments. I can print them out at home and use them on the insides of my cards.

Now I need to say my Hail Mary's and Our Father's for my thieving ways!
