Here we all are assembled nicely for our monthly card get together and in typical card group fashion there is not a card on the table...we started with snacks...does this sound like your card group too? :) I was having a conversation yesterday with the Queen of Jammer Town (Blooms in a Box) about crafters in general. Pat had some pretty strong opinions about the sanity of it all (now, you have to understand...she was working with her Copics while this conversation was taking place and I think we all know about the love affair she has with her Copics!) She thought you had to be pretty much a nut to do this, and really, I agree. I think we can all relate to some personal craft room crisis that made us question our own sanity (these epiphanies ususally occur in the wee hours of the morning when we really should be sleeping, but no...still in the craft room) Anyway, it got me to thinkin' (Pat tends to do that for me) and I thought rather than try to deny that inner nuttiness we all have, we should just gather together and support each other....come to think of it, I think we already do...welcome to SCS! LOL! Seriously, Pat and I did have a conversation that resembled this little story...I may have embellished a tad (ok, maybe a smidge) and it reminded me of this Hambo Digital image which I have been wanting to do something with, so here it is...the Jammer Town Card Group in all their glory..lol! Hope everyone has a great day! :)
Psst...Pat, that's you at the head of the table, yeah, the peanut..lol!

Katie! Sister, you continually "out" me!!! Oh my gosh...I guess if ya gotta be a Nut, ya might as well be the top nut. Did I ever mention how much I l-o-v-e your brain? Yeah, well I do, you nut. Your card is fab, as usual, and the tag, well it is priceless Sister!
Note to self: (because Nuts can do that) never talk to Katie during a Copic-induced rage, and remember to embrace the nuttiness! Yes! Katie, you seriously ROCK! Hugs....

Katie - you seriously ARE a true NUT! Your sense of humor makes me laugh at the slightest provocation (and of course, we all KNOW, that none of us are normal in Jammertown, so it is an accepted mode of behavior at the table in the craft room!) We will have to motion that we meet more often than once a month however, for without this needed therapy, we may all end up getting toasted!!
You sure got that right - Pat is, without a doubt, THE top NUT, and I just voted you in as the VICE PRESIDENT NUT and seconded the motion !! The only thing I see changing in this picture when we meet is when we crack ourselves up and are rolling on the floor LOL!
You have now topped all your previous observations, as shown in the above card, so, time to roll out the snacks - can you please pass the pretzels!!
Where do you find these cool images? This is just too, TOO Jammertown! Love this great card!!

Katie, you lil' peanut farmer you (I think your Georgia roots is showin)........how did I miss this in my stalking, ahem, I mean following of you! Jammer Town is officially outed and we have leaders, oh my!!! How nutty are we - just because we can't pass a craft store without pulling in, even if said craft store is 32 miles from the route we really need to take. When the Mother Ship calls (and that can be daily) we must answer. I love when my DH asks me just what I think it costs to make a card (really, doesn't he know I HAVE to have that die for $49.99 even if I only use it once). The Mother Ship does take coupons, even if its for only one of the 300 items I buy when I visit, I saved some money - didn't I!!!! Of course when all else fails I let him know the time in my stamp room is sooooo much cheaper than therapy!!! Hugs girlfriend on a fabulous card, what is scary is those of us who actually understand it, I think I better head to my therapy room on that one.

LOVE this! What a crack up...(no pun intended)... I could not agree more that we all get a little nuts at some time with our crafting....Your sentiment is soooo perfect and this whole card is just genius! You didn't share how you made the great wrap around label/tag/sentiment holder. It is just tooo cool! (even sort of has the shape of a peanut...stylized!).

Hobby, mental illness, addiction, whatever you call it, put me on that same list! But I sit in fine company, just look at the posters here! I know we're all nuts, but what about the fruits, I sometimes feel a little fruity too!
And what's with the jammer police, I sometimes do my best craftin' in my jammers! I think we need to have a crafting jammer party!
Cute card, and so very true! I love your great belly band, it adds a little elegance to the group of nuts!
