Keep Your Important Things Close

Yeah, so I'm not dead yet, big deal. I have a story to tell you!

I have a cell phone now after a good decade of cell phone avoidance. I'm not a big fan of carrying it with me everywhere. I feel stupid. Like there is no one I want to talk to so much that I need to carry a phone around waiting on them, especially when I'm at work.

I pointed that out to a coworker and she said, "Yeah, but your phone is like a mini-computer and it's expensive so you don't want to leave that in your office where someone could snatch it."
Based on that logic, the next time I have a stamp shindig after work you might catch me on campus carrying around a Big Shot all day.  That thing cost more than my phone and I'd really hate for someone to snatch it!
The Fine Print: Not that they'd know what to do with it... Stamps by Stampin' Up. Catch ya later! Peace, love, and die cutting. j

Glad to see you're still alive and kicking! The Big Shot is way too heavy to carry around. And my phone is a pain to carry around. Every time I put it in my pocket something bad happens. So it stays put like a good old fashioned phone unless I'm going somewhere. Then it stays in my pocketbook. Sometimes for days. If you call and I don't answer, leave a message!

Oh, and I love that red, black and white card! One of my favorite combos!

Yay, Judy! So nice to see you again! I've been wondering what ever happened to you! You and I (and hubby) feel the same way about cell phones. Sadly, they seem to be a necessity these days, so hubby and I went with the old flip-phone style. As for the Big Shot, I think I'd find a locked closet before I'd lug it around! Cute card too!

Great to hear from you again and see a cute little card too! I still haven't gotten on board with a cellphone and have no plans to! I guess you just can't teach old dogs new tricks :)

good to see you posting. i'm way behind too. i used to feel like that but my husband insisted and i caved. it's been a life saver a couple of times and i gotta say most times i have it on me or near me. I like your logic with the big shot though. Cute card. those vases intrigue me as i have a similar set and never use them.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Awesome to know you are alive and blogging Princess J - I love my cell phone, sorry to let the side down, and have it handy most of the time!!
Love your card - its quite dramatic with the colours you have used.
I use a cuttlebug, that cost way less than my phone, but I would hate to loose it!!
Blessings

Very cute card! A phone is a good tool, but it comes with a price of being able to be found at all times! Lol.

I am glad you are not dead! I had wondered if you had rendered yourself incapable of blogging due to injury by carrying your big shot around all day for fear of theft or misuse - neither of which could possibly be tolerated! Gorgeous card by the way! xxx
