SWEET NOVEMBER STAMPS - TAURUS...




Hi guys.
I sure hope that you all had a great weekend. Mine was a three day one, but it still seemed to just fly by. lol... I am running super behind this morning as our hot water tank went out this weekend and I had to get up really early to boil water so that I could take my bath and wash my hair. I don't do anything without my showers. :O)
So, because my super talented friend Amy Young is previewing some of her newest stamps today I asked if I could play along. Her stamps are all about the zodiac signs this time and you are not going to believe how wonderfully BIG these gals are. Almost 5 x 3& 1/2 inches. I asked to play with the Taurus as that is my sign. I decided that she needs to be in a field of flowers (kind of like Ferdinand the bull). You see as a Taurus we (I) can be very happy smelling the flowers and enjoying the softer side of life. However you had better not try and hurt me or mine in any way then the BULL comes out. Mine you, it takes a while but you really don't want to be on the other end of those horns when we're mad... So my girl is busy smelling some sweet flowers, after all April showers bring May flowers. Please be sure to stop at Amy's blog if you haven't already. You will find both Nancy and Marley have made some great cards as well.
Sorry for the rush. I will try and get my supplies listed tonight. Have a super Monday.
Hugs, Lisa G

I love that you placed Taurus among all the pretty flowers. A great design. Sorry about your water heater. Ours went out right before Christmas one year. The last thing we wanted to do was a buy a hot water heater as our Christmas present!

Lisa, I love it! Especially the whole idea of smelling the flowers and not making you mad so the bull won't come out! Great job!
