Vertically Challenged

NO!!!! The weekend can NOT already be over! Where does the time go? I was supposed to have made a final decision about whether or not to join Stampin' Up. I just can't seem to make up my mind. My goal was to decide by this evening...and here it is Sunday evening and I'm still unsure...

Confession time....I didn't intend for this to be a horizontal tag. I put the design paper on THEN realized it was directional and that I cut it in the WRONG direction. Oh well.... (maybe THAT's my answer regarding being Stampin' Up-er...I can't even put design paper on in the right direction!)
