Have a Seat

A man was looking for a place to sit in a crowded university library.
He asked a girl: "Do you mind if I sit beside you?"
The girl replied, in a loud voice. "NO, I DON'T WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU!"
All the people in the library started staring at the man, who was deeply embarrassed and moved to another table.
After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the man's table and said with a laugh: "I study psychology, and I know what a man is
thinking; I bet you felt embarrassed, right?"
The man responded in a loud voice: "$500 FOR ONE NIGHT? ..... I`M NOT PAYING YOU THAT MUCH!"
All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock.
The man whispered to her: "I study law, and I know how to manipulate people too."

Thanks for the tip Kelly, lovely idea instead of layering. Also great joke - a laugh out loud one

Jane Harrah

Love this idea Kelly. Love your jokes! Love your blog too.

Carol Carriveau

Thanks for the great tip and your video! Very clever idea to enhance our card making. I never thought Bout using Fun Foam, let alone stamping on it!

Hi Kelly

Great TOP TIP about embossing with dies, I certainly will be remembering your video tutorial when I prepare for my next project. Love your recent project with the Basket embossing folder and the new Level 2 stamp set. The joke above made me chuckle too. :O)
