CPS #223

I'm having some buyer's remorse. While I was watching my haul video from yesterday, I noticed that there's something wrong with this sentiment stamp that I bought yesterday. Can you guess what it is?
Answer: the apostrophe is in the wrong place! It should be before the r, instead of before the e. I thought it was just the image sticker, but I looked at the actual stamp, and yep, the apostrophe is in the wrong place there too. It's irking me to the extent that I'm planning to go back to Michaels to find a replacement or just simply return it. Even though the cost of the stamp wasn't that much, I want to be happy with what I spend my money on. Makes sense, right?

Here's my take on CPS #223. I wanted to continue my use of the DCWV paper stack that I used yesterday, but with more toned down colors. I also used one of my new sentiment stamps that I got from Michaels yesterday. I'm really digging the handwriting + font combination!

Such a sweet card, Cheri!! I love the colors you've used, and the cute teapot!! Thanks for joining us at CPS this week!!

PS- Such a bummer about the stamp being punctuated incorrectly. It is such a great sentiment, but I would take it back too!
