English Ivy Simple Sentiments

If you are reading this blog post, then you are probably a huge stamping enthusiast.  You have a passion for creating new and beautiful things.  You have a passion for communicating with your loved ones through the written word.  You love to get together with your friends and share your enthusiasm for creating.  You are a stamping geek.  Whoa!  Don’t get offended – I mean that in the nicest way!  Mom reads all my posts and hates when I write that I’m nerdy or geeky about stamping, but it’s true.  Flipping through Pinterest this week, I came across this quote that validates my status as a stamping geek:

When you unashamedly love to stamp and work with paper and ink, you can proudly be geeky about it.  Case closed.

Sometimes we don’t have time to sit down and make a card, and we were too lazy or disorganized to build a stockpile of cards that could be used for any occasion.  That’s why Stampin’ Up! offers some kits and stationery sets.  You may have passed over English Ivy Simple Sentiments in the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog, but I want you to reconsider it before it’s gone.  It’s especially a great deal now that it’s scheduled to retire and marked down quite a bit.  With the stamp of the letter “K” on top of this paper, I was set to write you a letter and drop it in the mail.  We love to drop “little notes” in the mail to our friends and family – this is a simple way to do it:English Ivy Simple Sentiments, Morning Post Alphabet, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
