I spotted this hilarious stamp online and just had to have it!!!
This is a stamp from Jessica Lynn Original stamp called "Punny"... it says,
"I couldn't figure out why the baseball was getting bigger and bigger.
Then it hit me."
LOL!!! Love it!!! Perfect! Especially since this is what happened to my poor hubs when he played T-ball and then he never played again! ;)
Paper(s): Bazzill
Stamp(s): Jessica Lynn Original "Punny 003" Stamp
Ink(s): Stampin Up Basic Black Markers; Copics
Accessories: Stampin Up Buttons; Misc. Ribbon.
Here's another stamp that I purchased from Jessica Lynn Original!!!
My very own personalized stamp!!!
It looks almost exactly like my very own handwriting :)
Thank you Jessica!!!

**Our 2nd challenge will start today and end July 4th!!!**
Inspired by last weekend's Cards For Heroes Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop :) We would like to help Cards For Heroes by having you create card(s) (preferred size is 4.25" x 5.5) for our troops! You can create/submit as many cards as you like! and mail them to me and I will forward them all to Cards For Heroes!!!

For each card that I receive in my hands you will earn an entry to win a prize!!!
Here's some basic info for the kind of cards they would like to receive :)

What kind of cards do service members prefer?
"We're told that general cards are in greatest demand since they are not time-sensitive: miss you, love, birthday, thinking of you, hello, thank you. They send cards to husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, children and friends, so any of these themes directed to any of these audiences are fabulous!"
What kind of cards should I avoid sending?
"No glitter that will flake off the card—it is a safety hazard; it can make a mess on a uniform and make a hero visible to night-vision goggles! Please do not send suggestive or risqué cards; we do not wish to offend any of our service members. Funny cards are okay, but keep them positive and upbeat. "
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to leave a comment at Sissy's Scrap Challenge and/or email me, Margie (
Let's get creating for a great cause :)
Imagine how happy you will make not only the service person that will be using your cards, but the person that he/she sends it to! Their parents, spouse, kids!!!
You have until the 4th of July!!! Plenty of time to create and/or dig in your stash and send some cards in!!!

What a great job!! I am working on more Punny stamps and they always make me laugh when I see them! What a great job you did with the challenge. I LOVE the way that you colored them all different. :)

Also the stamp on the back of the cards looks great. How fun!! :)

THANK YOU for sharing!
Jessica Lynn
