I was moved to make a card using a newish, uninked, mini stamp set of mine, but after my usual "love at first sight" attraction to this sentiment (as with most things Papertrey Ink) and only upon completion of this card, I realized that I had no real idea what it meant. I recall the very moment I saw "Bloom and Grow Forever" and thought, awww, that's lovely, but in hindsight and with my marvelous newfound 20/20 vision, I really don't know what or whom this sentiment was designed for, let alone what it means. How strange. Is it a sentiment for new moms or moms-to be, budding florists or crazed horticulturists (yes, one must be specifically crazed whilst in the horticultural industry in order to get a card from me), young explorers (I hear that the monicker travellers is so passé) or what?
Truth be told I completely made a card and have no idea what or whom it is designed for due to my incomprehension of the sentiment used. Silly me. I must have been caught up in the euphoric haze of cardmaking. Have you ever had this happen to you?
Ooh, and if you do know what this sentiment really means, please let this bewildered cardmaker know. I did have fun making this card though and was definitely moved and inspired as is the case while papercrafting, but I sure wouldn't mind knowing what in the heck this sentiment actually means. I can already hear my husband saying now, "Well, if you don't know what's in your head, what hope have I got?" So rest assured that reply is already taken. *wink* Bless.
