Red Ryder BB Gun - That is all I want for Easter


OK, OK, I know I have the wrong holiday and the wrong season, but this stamp just arrived and I could not wait. I had seen this on someone's blog, please forgive me for not giving credit but I do so much blog hopping and don't remember. Well anyway I had ordered it in February and it was on back order, it just arrived and I had to ink it up, it did not come in a box labled Fragile that is pronounced, fra jillie - it is Italian you know. LOL, if you are not a Christmas Story fantatic like me, just forgive the rambling. I used my spica pen to give some sparkle to the shade tassles. The yellow glow is less obvious IRL, for some reason it shows up really strong in the photo. Hope you like this card.
UPDATE - sorry I forgot to list the stamp company, it is Sideshow stamps, they are really nice people and great to order from.

Ana had sent me this wonderful award and I apologize for not posting earlier. For all of you who stop by and leave a kind word of encouragement it is so greatly appreciated, consider yourself tagged.

Have a great weekend everyone and will catch up with you on Scrapbook Sunday.

Bahahah. This stamp rocks! I completely understand your urge to ink it up. Whats the company, Flo? My two fav parts of the movie is the "Fra-jille" and when the boy gets his mouth washed out with soap. Too funny.

I can't remember a Christmas in recent history that we haven't seen a Christmas Story. My favorite part is when they are singing carols in the Chinese restaurant. If my son were to ask for a BB Gun he'd be out of luck...he could put an eye out!LOL!!

Have a great weekend!

Its ok I love the movie A Christmas Story. When I was a kid my brother and I wanted to see if our tongues would really stick to ice{after watching that movie}, so we went to the huge freezer in the garage, stuck our tongues out until they touch a rack...and what do you know, they STUCK, it was seriously painful lol, I thought my tongue was going to get ripped off. I can only look back and laugh now lol
That bunny paper is really cute, so is the image, I like how you paper pieced the lamp shade, very nice

Chris said...

ROFL... I had to look twice at your stamped image Flo... I thought to myself is that really a leg I see under that lampshade!! Totally love it.. so very different and you turned it into a beautiful card as usual :D
