You’re So Lovely Bright Pineapples Note Card



I have been debating in my head (probably for the entire summer!) about buying a pineapple stamp set. Yes, pineapples are cute. YES, they are in vogue. But I come back to “how many pineapple cards am I really going to make?” Am I really going to use the sentiments that are included with pineapples? (the answer to that is NO!) I just can’t justify buying a stamp set to make one card.

Saturday afternoon, I was rearranging my stamp storage, and I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! set Balmy Breezes from 2005. Oh, will you look at that…a pineapple. The art is not the current style, but it is still a pineapple.

I decided to use bright colors (as opposed to realistic colors).

Let me know what you think – should I buy a pineapple stamp set? Have I totally missed the pineapple bandwagon?

  1. What a great sentiment.

  2. I love your brightly coloured pineapples! I know completely what you mean about possibly missing the pineapple boat, but I ordered a set of pineapple and flamingo stamps at the weekend because I just could not resist. I justified it by telling myself that card makers would know the fashion had been around for a while, but the recipients perhaps may not?!
