You know, ever since my friend Minty exposed me to A Muse, I always liked their stuff... Recently, they had a thing where they waived the shipping charge. I'm a sucker for that. I think mainly it's because to me, it's like paying for taxes, you have to spare extra for that charge. Except, you never know what it is... unlike taxes, there's a flat rate wherever you are. Some states has no sales tax. But, shipping charges sometimes seems arbitrary. I understand that small businesses like stamp companies need to recoup some of that cost, but some places just seems outrageous to me.

That's why, if there's a stamp company that said if you buy more than X, we'll waive the shipping, more than likely I will frequent your place. Versus, despite some of the stamp companies has excellent products, I'd rather go to LSS for that instead. I know it's silly because I do wind up paying a bit more at the LSS with their overhead and sales tax, just figure I might as well spread the love around, especially I'm just buying one or two stamps instead of a lot.

Anyway, so, had a sale and threw in some cards as a bonus. YAY! So, I went to town... well, sort of.

These are the 2 I've been dying to play with since I saw them online. Boy, did I enjoy inking that up!

I've volunteered my service to make invites for 2 different friend's baby showers. One is coming up soon... so I'm playing around w/ different style and layout. This is one of them. You can't see the word very well on the photo, but it said 'She's Expecting'. Thought that's appropriate.

I'm struggling w/ the color because when you make cards/invites like that, are you supposed to catered to the mother? Or are you supposed to cater to the sex of the baby? I'm very confused on that. We'll see.
