WMSC 21 - I'd like to check you out

I actually did make a card for the WMS sketch this week -- shocking I know! So check it out at the WMS Sketch Challenge blog. And a random participant will win a free stamp set!


I love cheesy puns. Just ask my hubs... he groans every time I come up with something. So I've been dying to use this pun on a card and I finally found a good reason to use it.

I had a stamp of a library check out card -- remember those? I used to love stamping the due date on those check out cards and slipping it back into my library book. My library moved to a self-checkout system with a receipt when I was in junior high and it just wasn't as cool (ok, hope that doesn't date me).

So when I saw the library card sitting on my desk, I decided I needed to pair it with the sentiment: "I'd like to check you out".  Hardee har har! Perfect to give to a dorky book lover. Ok, I'm gonna keep chuckling on my cute sentiment and you guys can roll your eyes now.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
