Found these poems at http://www.cardinspirations.biz/home.htm

Acknowledgement to the poet, Sharnie Riley)

It all began with just one stamp
Amd just one stamp pad too
Of course, things couldn't stay that way
And shortly, I had two.

This was quickly followed
By more stamps (three and four)
The craving had now started
I wanted more and more.

A teeny weeny garden set
With a lovely rose
The cutest little teddy bear
Must have one of those.

A couple of those inkums sets
A rollagraph or two
And then another coloured ink
For stamping I must do.

I really love those bear stamps
And country ones are nice
I see that Penny Black
Has some lovely little mice.

I think that I'm addicted now
It started just last year
I now can't pass a catalogue
Without just one more bear.

And then I joined some stamping lists
Upon the internet
From here I learned of other things
That I must really get.

I want to try some brayering
And pearl-ex powders too
Stamping on polymer clay
There's lots of things to do.

My husband is somewhat bemused
As are my children (three)
As I produce yet more stamped things
Keen for them to see.

And now I'm signed up for some swaps
One's a birthday card
The other is a teddy theme
Now that can't be too hard

I'd better go and start them now
I've six of each to do
I want to get them in the post
And then start something new......

and here's another one:

THE STAMPER by Jackie Saxby 1999

I started out with just one stamp
and when I bought some more
I decided that a shoe box
Would make an ideal store.

Then as I added inks and pens,
My stamp collection grew
So I bought a roomy plastic crate
It would last for years, I knew.

Embossing then became my thing
With powders and a heat gun,
Metallics, tinsels, pearls and clear,
I soon had every one.

By now my lovely plastic crate
Was spilling everywhere
And my glitter glue collection
Lay scattered on a chair.

My husband started muttering
And said things had to stop,
So I bought a huge old wardrobe
At the local charity shop.

But after a while,
I couldn't shut the door
And I put shelves in the spare room
To accomodate yet more.

Our house is now for sale,
Something larger being sought,
By the way, did I show you
The latest stamp I bought......


some great card inspirations and projects at this site as well.
