I happen to be married to one of those hunky firemen. He even likes to stamp every now and then and around Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, his crew invites me to come to the station to stamp with all of them. They make a card for their spouse to celebrate the occasion. It’s something that we all look forward to doing twice a year. I’ve even been told that a few of the wives hang the cards on the fridge and it remains there to be admired until a replacement card is brought home—now that’s appreciation!!!
The Mother’s Day card we stamped this year was a big hit—both with the stamping firefighters and the wives and mothers. It was the perfect card to do on shift since they never know when they’ll get the next call. They all had their card stamped and put together within 10 minutes.
One of the firefighters said, “Really—that’s all the time it takes to make one of these? My wife is gone for hours when she stamps with her girlfriends!” I tried to explain that when we stampers get together—more than just stamping is going on. We’re sharing ideas, tips, and suggestions and enjoying each other’s company—that takes longer than 10 minutes!
