It’s after Labor Day, dearie!

Someone needs to clue her in — no white shoes or purse after Labor Day!  Oh, I know, the “modern” opinion says otherwise, but I refuse to capitulate.  Nor will I type only one space between sentences.  So there.

This is my first Build-A-Bear card.  As I was, um, building her, my worst fear came to pass:  I started talking to her.  This was just why I was resisting this whole line.  But I couldn’t turn my back on the potential for endless variations on a bear in a seasonal outfit — all those dreary, wasted years with no cement goose on the front stoop! — and so here I am.

I mean, how cute is that pleated skirt?  A Stampin’ Dimensional under her skirt pops up the pleats.  (No, I am not speaking in code.)  This is the perfect outlet for all those tiny scraps you can’t bear (get it?) to throw away — and also the Stampin’ Up! Level 1 Hostess Patterns Pack.

    Hahaha! This is very funny. I don’t have any white shoes anymore, even the gyms have gone the way of the no-so-puppy but I did think about the season as I was slipping into my sandals this morning. Not too much longer for those, at least for me.
