CDS Sneak Peek - The Measure of A Man


Recognize this shaker card? This little card was made for my debut as a Dirty Dozen member for the March 2009 gallery - TV Dinners and was the complete inspiration for my newest Clear Dollar Stamps illustrated set called "The measure of a man". This set will be released on September 1st.



The set was a collaboration of both me for the images and my wonderful husband who thought up the sentiments...and you can quote him on those! lol This set has such sentiments as "He who dies with the most remotes, wins", "Definition of multi-tasking: picture in picture", "A man's self worth is measured by the size of his t.v" and "Vintage never goes out of style" with coordinating sentiments of "Happy birthday" and "Enjoy your day". I have been told by Bill that this set will be a best seller because the sentiments are perfect for any man! Cheeky, isn't he? LOL



To see a peek of this set in it's full form, please hop on over to the Clearly iStamp blog to see this and the other sets that are being previewed today and also don't forget to visit all the the very talented ladies that are showing off all of their lovely samples for you today:

Before I go I would love to wish my big brother a very Happy 34th Birthday! Age is just a number and thankfully it's a whole year older than my number! *snicker*
