"Nice"

My scanner is working again - woo hoo! So... I've been making cards like crazy this past week. For some reason that I do not understand, I am extremely pleased with what I have created, they all look good. A few days ago I made a fun card that I loved; when I showed it to Eric he made some general blase comment like "It's really nice". It felt like he was about as impressed as with a kindergartner's art project. (Except he would show MORE enthusiasm for a kindergarten art project that was brought home by his child, understandably.) So today I gave him a chance to redeem himself. I showed him what I think may be the best card I've ever made. He mustered up all the enthusiasm he could and said "It's really nice!" Really - - - nice? This card has everything! Fabulous color, stamping, coloring, water coloring, sponging, embossing, HUMOR!!!! And it's "nice"?

I need some positive affirmation from somewhere so, please, tell me you like this card. Just, please, don't say it's nice.

All your cards always look great to me. I hope you have not just been damned by faint praise. :)

I love it. I get kind of the same response when I talk to Brent about my horse, though. There's just things that men don't understand, and they really, truly think that "nice" is a stunning compliment.

Oh well, that's why we have girl friends.

I think it is gorgeous. Not nice. I love how the water color makes me truly think of the sea---it looks like a vacation on paper.

Wow! I am totally impressed! I thought it was a professional book cover, before I read your blog.
I totally expected to read a book review when I first saw it.

Nice job!! (I mean, AWESOME job! heh heh)

I have asked my husband before if he has a limited sylables of words he can use per day. He said,
"Yep"
