Monograms, schmonograms...

Ok, I just love my JustRite monogram stamps but those little tiny letters are tough to work with!

I was making some thank yous for a friend (wink, wink, you know who you are) and I did the outside ring for the first time. Those little things kept popping out and flying across the room. Then I'd have to get down on my hands and knees to find them on my GRAY burber carpet, not easy!!

Once they were on, it was so easy to stamp a bunch, but when I decided to change ink colors, I spritzed my SU stamp cleaner, rubbed into it and a lot of my little letters fell out! I proceeded to pop them back in, got my nails all navy blue and decided the best way to clean them is by stamping on a baby wipe and then stamping off on a scrap piece of paper. Something to file away for the future.

I never got to play with my goodies from the shopping spree. I'm hoping for tomorrow night. Tonight hubby is taking me to dinner.

so that's how you do it !!! that is so cool !!! really, I was wondering how you made those monograms. Having that outside circle adds an extra touch and challenge. ;-) But it looks so cute!

The monograms look great-but so much work-I had no idea!
