Sharon's Challenge & Yes, I'm An Obsessed Fan

Here's my card for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge. I so love how she challenges me! Stamping simply is hard! I do sometimes have a tendency to overthink everything. That's why I am so glad that I found Sharon. She really helps with that. I had this card completed earlier today but after getting my package from Beate, I had to add a little of that cute striped ribbon. How cute is that ribbon! Love it!

So here is my card...

Very simple. EPLS(...that's Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy around my house). I used my new Stampendous stamp. Could have sworn I had ordered a sentiment with this one but obviously I forgot that part! ...so there isn't one! Oh, I can never have enough blank note cards. I also used real red, whisper white, and river rock card stock. The decorative paper is something I ordered. The ribbon with the stripes is some of the really cute stuff I won from Beates sketch challenge. Soo cute and so perfect for this card! I used my copics to color the bee and then just spica'd the death out of him!

Oh, and one more thing!...I think I am an obsessed fan! I get so inspired by all that you all offer on your blogs. It has become my morning routine to check them out while the boys are having breakfast. Well, and my weekend isn't complete without all of the challenges! I get so excited when I find another new blog...man there are a lot! ...there just isn't enough time in the day! You guys are awesome!

Speaking of challenges, did you know that Taylor has a sketch challenge? Awesome! Awesome sketch as well!

So it occurred to me today that I am an obsessed fan! I almost hate to type that as Kathy Bates from Misery comes to mind! Has anyone ever seen that movie? If not did you read the book? I am such a huge Stephen King fan as well! Anyway, I am always in awe of everything you guys do! And every day I stumble across yet another blog with yet another amazing stamper and the next thing you know I am leaving some long-winded post about how wonderful your project is...

**"I'm your number one fan!"**

I can't promise that I won't keep consuming your blog spaces with compliments...after all *"I'm your number one fan!"* But I can promise that if you are in a terrible accident near my house I won't come drag you out of a ditch only to lock you up in a bedroom and make you stamp only for me! ;)

If you guys have never read this book you should. It was so good! I so love Stephen King! If nothing else, rent the movie. It's definitely one of the better ones. I so hate how most of the books just got butchered at the movies!

Ok...now that you all know just how nuts I really am I should run to take care of my kids.

Post you later from 'Your number one fan'! ;)

Your post is so funny. I think we all feel like that at times. I like to think that I am an encourager rather than a stalker! lol!

I found your blog because of Beate's challenge. You are talented! It makes me think I need to stamp instead of clean/ cook/parent!
