Cardmakers Bill Of Rights

My wonderful scrapping/stamping buddy SharonG sent this to me yesterday. I don't know where it originated from so I can't credit, but if anyone knows please leave a comment so I can.

The Cardmaker's Bill of Rights

A Cardmaker delivers the most welcome kind of unannounced visitor: A handmade card. A card touches ussomehow, a small folded piece of paper can comfort, celebrate, reach out or just say hello. Creating a handmade card is an honorable and important task. As a Cardmaker, you are entitled (but not limited) to the following rights:

* You have the right to take as long as you want to complete one handmade card. This may be five minutes or two weeks.

* You have the right to send a card for no other reason than to show off your new stamp, embellishment or technique.

* You have the right to create a fabulous card for your husband, partner or roommatejust because you know it will stay in your house.

* You have the right to spread your cardmaking things out all over, just to admire them.

* You have the right to purchase a certain cardmaking item for no other reason than because a) you like it; b) you think it's cute; c) you'll never find it again, or; d) you know you'll use it someday.

* You have the right to reserve using your most precious supplies on cards only for recipients who will truly appreciate them.

* You have the right to a workspace of your own. This may be the basement, your college student's old bedroom, or the kitchen table.

* You have the right to make cards when inspiration strikeswhether the dishes are done or not.

* You have the right to request peaceful, kid-free, stress-less cardmaking timeguilt-free.

* You have the right to let the handmade card be the gift, too.

* You have the right to value your personal style. You are creating a treasureand part of that treasure is you.
