Did you cut apart your stamp?

On purpose?!!

I did.

I really did.

I have to admit, the idea made me queasy.

Erin Lincoln, hostess on Make It Monday #82 made me do it!!! ;) LOL

Well, she didn't MAKE ME DO it, but she encouraged me to do it.

It's crazy...but believe me, you'll survive!

Watch the video to know what to cut and what NOT to cut.

I have the set Count My Blessings that fit the category of "OKAY to cut apart".

The phrase was originally "today because".

I wanted to use "today", so I cut that perfect stamp APART.

gasp, shock, awe.

I know.

I paired it with Teach & Inspire's sentiment.

While today is still today...let us inspire and encourage~

Fab card, Marlena. I do have a tendency to cut stamps apart, the only trouble is trying to remember which stamps should be together lol

Love your cheery and meaningful card, Marlena. Congrats on the shout out from PTI! Off to watch Erin's video now (I get queezy just thinking about cutting stamps apart, but I guess I'll get over it.)

I just linked up and came to visit the other links - not too many brave souls yet, huh? - and had to chuckle at how we similarly wrote about being squeemish over cutting our stamps. I'm sure we are not alone! I enjoyed your post very much and your card is fantastic! Well-done, Marlena! Congratulations on the well-deserved PTI shoutout!!
