Howdy, friends! How are you today? It was the first day back at school for both of my youngin's. Unfortunately, my sweet little guy, Carter (now age 10 and in 4th grade) started running a slight temp at school, so I picked him up early. I took him to Urgent Care to get swabbed and rule out the flu, but guess what? No can do -- he's one of the many around the country who's got that nasty strain of stuff, so he's going to be hanging out with his mama at home for the next few days. My poor baby!
(Just to let you know, I do have a tiny bit of decorum: I could have legitmately used the vomiting smiley instead of the one sick in bed, but I selected the less graphic/gross of the two. I know, totally out of character, right? But it's my kid we're talking about here. And if there's any kind of jinx-y behavior involved with the selection of smilies, I don't want to irritate the deities of digestion.)
Moving right along...

I don't know if you can read the teeny, tiny print at the bottom, but here's a close-up in case you can't...
Funny, no? I think this card could be sent as a thank-you, congratulations, graduation, whatever. Anytime you want to send a greeting to someone to convey how excited you are for them, FUN CHARTS has got you covered. It's also sized perfectly for those of you who do Project Life-type scrapbooking, too. Take a look:
Next up, is one of my favorite sets of this release, SWEET AND COOL; you can also buy a new die set that coordinates with all of the images, and the set also works perfectly with the super cute and necessary-to-own (in my humble opinion) FUN FACES set. I used both SWEET AND COOL and FUN FACES to create this repeating background pattern of perky popsicles:
These stamp sets, plus six more, and five new die sets are all available NOW at the YNS Store! Now, before you go shopping, you'll definitely want this discount code:
