You Cured Yet?

I was sorting through all of my stamped images that I have received from SCS friends, blog friends, and the WRAK forum, and found I have some images that I have since bought the matching stamps for. This is one of those images. I fell in love with this Farm Fever set when it came out, but did I buy it? Nooooo. Why would I? lol. For the longest time I would talk myself out of stamps until after they were retired and then end up paying more for them on ebay than I would have if I'd just bought them out of the catalog. Doh.

Anyhow, I made this quick card for my Aunt Bev. She broke her hip in late July, and I brought a card to her while she was in the hospital, but I thought I'd send this cute little follow up now since I haven't heard from her in awhile. My Aunt and Uncle are farmers, so I thought she'd (they'd) get a kick out of this.

This also marks the first time I've used my Fiskars threading water punch. It bothers me A LOT that it's threading and not treading. I feel like I have a lisp every time I say it. Yeah, I know, I need to move on.

So let's move on to this... Is there anyone out there like me who loves this stamp set but never bought it? Or maybe it's the first time you've seen it? Either way, I'm cleaning house in the image department, so everything you see below is up for grabs! If one person is interested, I'll send everything to that person. If two are interested, I'll split it between them. The first one or two to post a comment on this thread expressing interest get the goods! OH... take note... I have no idea what kind of paper these are stamped on, but it isn't real good for blending copics. The ink is totally copic safe though if you want to fight with the blending issue. Otherwise you'd have to use another medium for coloring.

Stamps: Farm Fever (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Unknown
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Brocade Blue
Other: Corner Rounder Punch, Going Grey Stampin' Write Marker (doodling), Threading Water punch (Fiskars), White Grosgrain Ribbon, Clear Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), Copic Markers

I almost bought this one last year and passed it over for one that I thought I'd use more. Guess what ... the one I thought I'd use more has been outta the box ONCE!

I'd so love to have these amazing stamped images. Its the next best thing to owning them.

Thanks for offering.
