Simple Thanks.

Here's another little card with an image from the same set as yesterday. I wish I could buy this set, but I don't have any need to buy enough items to get this one free. I tend to want the sets you can't buy from Stampin' Up! that are hostess sets.

I am also having issues with adhesive. I think I have used been using the TomBow adhesive with the blue roller, but I swear that stuff doesn't stick. I can pull it off the next day. And yes, I have been buying the permanent tape. So I have gone to glue sticks, because at least I know that sticks. Ugh. So the moral of this is I tried to stick a different type of ribbon to the card and it fell off. Not just kind of fell off, but I went in my office and the card was standing up on my desk and the ribbon was on the desk. So I got out different ribbon and tied it on. What a waste of ribbon. Ugh.

I am also very cheap, so if you give me wildly expensive recommendations for glue I won't use them. I would rather buy cheap glue sticks and take the time to adhere them than to risk my cards not being together when they get to the recipient. Phew. So enough of that rant. I just had to get that out. Enjoy! :)

Thank You Card

I can see why you like this set of stamps ~ VERY cute!!!!

Sorry you are having glue troubles. I also use the Tombow Runner to hold down my papers but for heavy things I use glue dots in all three sizes. The mini are perfect for the Dew Drops and knots under ribbons!

Andi,
You must, must, must get an ATG gun. they have them the cheapest at www.frames4less.com
the initial investiment in the gun is so worth it. the refills are way bigger than the tombow, they stick way, way, way better. I can even use it when I would use redline, sometimes. Like for the target mailboxes. there is a thread on scs. I am the cheapest person around, and I love, love, love the gun I begged my husband for for my birthday. He even used it just a couple of days ago for something, and told me how awesome it was-- you must understand, he calls it arts and crap things. LOL :)
