I Love You This Much...


Oh. my. goodness. I have waited... and waited.......... with GREAT excitement for this day to come. It is a VERY SPECIAL DAY!

The JessicaLynnOriginal design team has some great things to show you in today's blog hop... so if you have arrived here from Sharon's blog, you're at the right spot. If not, be sure to go back to the beginning and hop along with us.

You may not know it, but JessicaLynnOriginal makes custom stamps - you choose what you want and she creates it for you at a reasonable price. Isn't that so cool!!?!?!??!? To highlight this service, Jessica (the owner) created a custom stamp for each member of her design team.... we got to choose what we wanted!  Today we're going to show you our stuff.

First, some background. I have 3 children who are now adults. From the time they were quite young, I had a little tradition I did with them. I'd stretch my arms just as wide as they could go and tell them "I love you this much and more." To this day, my great big Brock will say the same thing to me, which just melts my heart. (He's my 30-year-old, 6-foot-tall autistic son.)

So, I asked Jessica to create a stamp for me with that saying on it. She did... and I love it!!!


This stamp meets my approval!!!




Let me show you some things I have already done with my stamp...

Card #1








Card #2









Card #3 
(this one is my favorite!)









Card #4
(I created my own designer paper with watercolors)



The inside holds a gift card:



Card #5
(I used the stamp to make the designer paper)







I also plan to use my stamp sometimes to decorate the outside of the envelope when mailing a card to my other son or my daughter.





I see so much potential for my stamp.

Jessica, THANKS again for making me the proud owner of one of your custom stamps!

Now, be sure to hop on over to Vickie's blog to see what she has for you. Hers is the last blog on the hop.

Oh and just in case you get lost along the way (or there's a glitch in the hop), here's the entire blog hop list...

Wow, those cards are amazing and I love that you can use the image on the envelope as well and that you created custom paper with it. Making the inside able to hold a gift card is a great idea, too, love that!
