Thank You For Eating My Tapir & Other Thoughts

Meet my Tapir. His name is Stripey. I love him. In a perfect world I would have a little team of these guys I could pile into the car and run around town with. If I had a million dollars, the first thing I would do would be acquire Stripey. So of course I had to show Stripey to my hilarious Twitter friends. As happens sometimes on Twitter, strange and funny conversations erupted, and began to center around eating my tapir. There was tapir on biscuits, tapir bacon, tapir casserole. They even talked in German about eating my tapir so I wouldn't hear. It was hysterical, and continued well into my trip to Salt Lake.

When I got home I was excited to see two mysterious boxes. One from my friend @crookedstamper and one from @dimbulb52. Inside - these.

That's right - Leslie sent me a Tapir - and Gary sent me the BBQ sauce. I laughed so hard I scared Maddie and Splotchy. I'm so lucky to have friends that make me giggle. Visit their blogs (links above) for more hilarity. Thanks L&G - xoxo. Still giggling. AND NO YOU STILL CAN'T EAT MY TAPIR!

All the tapir eating talk made Maddie decide to start eating my laptop last night. I'm serious. This is a phone pic so it's awful, but just listen and you will hear nom nom nom as she eats my screen.

Finally, a card. Yes, I stamped last night! (waiting for gasps to stop).

I wanted to make some convention Thank You's, so I took my trusty dictionary and got to work with Chic Boutique. I suppose someday I'll get out of my kraft obsession, but not just yet. ;)
stamps: Chic Boutique | accessories: Soft Suede Ribbon, Sticky Strip, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals | cardstock: dictionary, Kraft, Bashful Blue
