FYI ... It Will Getter Better

So I just got my new Stamping Up FYI stamps from my favorite Stamping Up demonstrator! :) I bought these a while ago and for some reason I find them hilarious. I don't think anyone else (that I know anyway) thinks they are quite as hilarious as I do but they just hit my funny bone and so I had to use them right away.

I was blog hoping a bit and found a few blogs I wanted to play with this week and of course I had to play along with Paper Players since they are (I think they all are) Stamping Up ladies and I have a set of Stamping Up stamps that I am using! I found inspiration in the cheeky little girl and her adorable outfit.

I also had to play along with Fantabulous Cricut because I do love using my cricut and their challenge was none other then faux (or real) stitching which I have an addiction to doing. So perfect challenge! lol

Last but not least was the challenge at Practical Scrappers which was stamps. Which I used obviously and thought it would be fun to play along with them.

I did a card with a similar layout to this last week and I find them really fun little scenes to build and think I may just build more. My card was built around the "It will get better" FYI stamp (hilarious! I just think it's funny to use For Your Information in front of these different sayings) and I thought it would be a fun card to give to a busy mom as a joke one day.

No one is sleeping, the bear is ripped and the bottle is knocked over and the baby is cranky ... I think all mom's have crazy days now and then :).


  1. This is totally terrific Laurie! I love how you used the stamp (from your favourite SU! demo) and the way you created a little scene on the front of the card to match it!! Hilarious!
    Thanks for playing with the Players this week!!

  2. How the star embossing on the background!!! A Fantabulous card!

  3. OK... So.... I'm so pleased that I wasn't drinking when I looked at this card! I would have had coffee - or whatever I was drinking - all over the screen. This is hysterical. I love those pyjamas. Your paper piecing is superb. I also love how you tied all the challenges together. My final LOVE IT element... the pillows! :-)
    Now... I will never be able to look at the FYI set the same way again!
    Thank you for joining the Paper Players this week. I always enjoying looking at your wonderful creations.
