Karen,

Got the two stamps today, thanks again! I'm very amused by the "around 21" stamp. I really think that's going to go with my quirky old folks stamps!

I ABSOLUTELY agree! Using the center of a sheet of cs when you can just as easily position your die to leave a large, usable chunk of cs makes no sense to me! I've seen people do this at stamping...
