Polky Dot Fever

Sooo, it turns out, I looove polky dots. Crazy, huh? I had no idea how I felt about them until I realized that I use them on pretty much every card I make.  I was looking over my Year in Review post for the 4th time, and scrolling casually up the list, I noticed a pattern.  Lots of dots!  So weird. Where did this obsession come from? When did it start? I do remember that when I first got this set, it just sat there for awhile cuz I couldn't figure out why in the heck I thought buying it was a good idea.  Now I wonder what I put behind my images before I discovered Polka Dot Basics I & II. And yeah, I do have other background stamps, but none of them are as perfect as my beloved polky dots. And, did you notice how many sizes I have?  No? Well then, I'll have to use them all so you can see for yourself.  Seriously.  The card I'm working on now has no background yet. Just a colored image. Hmmm. I'm gonna try really hard to put something different back there, but I can't make any promises. Maybe some patterned paper.  I dunno. I guess we'll just have to wait & see.  Ooh, I'm on the edge of my seat with anticipation!

So cute! I love the shape of the cut-out she is on, and the soft aqua edges. And who doesn't like polka dots?
