Creative Play Stamps~Fancy Ovals

Creative Play Stamps has three new oval sets, one simple, one fancy, and one companion. This is the fancy one! They are all interchangeable, so the combinations are endless! This card has little touches of copper Stickles, which makes me happy! Also, the brad holding the Primas together is copper. If I had really had my act together, I would have used copper staples, but no one has ever accused me of having my act together! Notice that the left staple is botched. Does that drive you crazy? You can come over and fix it if you want to, because I'm not going to, it doesn't bother me at all. There are some things I can't tolerate on a card, like crooked layers, cuts, or catching the edge of a stamp. I also don't like any kind of adhesive to show, or the legs of brads on the inside of cards. But I get to a point when I think it's more than alright that you know that a human being made this card. A fallible woman. A wife, mother, sister and friend. Sometimes in life the staples just aren't perfect, are they?

I never would have noticed the staple if you hadn't mentioned it.

I like that fancy oval set.
