What's a Greeting Card?
Author Unknown.

It's a little piece of paper
That tells someone how you care;
It can be a ray of sunshine --
It can be a wish or prayer.

It can simply say, "I love you"
Or just say "I understand"
It can be a little visit,
Or the clasp of someone's hand.

It can be a word of comfort
When somebody's heart is sad,
It can be a smile or chuckle
Making someone's heart feel glad.

It can keep folks close together
Even though they're far apart;
It can show someone you're thankful
From the bottom of your heart.

It can travel any distance
In all kinds of weather, too,
And it has the "magic something"
That some "big things" never do.

Yes, it's just a piece of paper
And it cost no big amount,
But it proves that old, old saying;
"It's the little things that count."

I don't know if this has been posted here or not, but I'm a collector of poetry and have enjoyed this poem abt. stamping. Hope you enjoy it too!

She learned to stamp on Monday
Her embossing was quite fine.
She forgot to set out dinner,
So we went out to dine.

She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
She says they are a must.
They really were quite lovely
But she forgot to dust.

On Wednesday it was birthday cards
She says that chalking's fun.
Shading, blending, and watercoloring...
But the laundry wasn't done.

Her card swap was on Thursday
Using green and blue and red;
I guess she really was engrossed,
She never made the bed!

It was shaker cards on Friday
Using techniques she just adores,
But she never seemed to notice
The crumbs on all the floors.

I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete
My wife can stamp the hours away;
The house will still be neat.

Well, it's already Sunday,
And my forehead's feeling damp.
I cursed, I raved, and I ranted--
The MAID has learned to stamp!!!
