Chasing Desperately - VERY PUNNY

I know it sounds weird but I am seriously looking for this Stampin Up stamp set.

Why???????? (I hear you ask)

The truth of the matter is some time back I was at a fundraiser and purchased a few tickets in this bottle stall - (you know the one where you pay say $5 and get say 10 tickets and the matching tickets are attached to 10 different bottles)

Well, I was lucky (or unlucky) enough to end up with 4 lovely funny stamps from believe it or not from the VERY PUNNY Stampin Up stamp set, but, I have since found out that those stamps are from a set of 8 and no longer available from Stampin Up :-(

I have been on the internet and searched EBAY consistantly but to no avail (well that technically isn' completely true there are 2 available in USA but postage and the exchane rate would kill me)

So, if you know anyone who has a VERY PUNNY Stampin Up stamp set & would like to perhaps sell it to me I would be most greatful.

I know I hear you again what would I do with the 4 I already have if by some miracle someone out there is willing to part with theirs, well, I would donate those 4 that I do currently have to
my local scrap club which meets every 4th Sunday (it is a non profit club)

Below I have a picture of the stamp set which I copied from the internet.

If you can help me please email me.

Many Thank You's

When I'm an old lady, I'll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness...just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they've provided.
Returning each deed! Oh, they'll be so excited!
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues,
And I'll bounce on the furniture...wearing my shoes.
I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout!
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their head,
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green beans or salad or meat,
I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry...I'll run...if I'm able!
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I'll sit close to the TV, through the channels I'll click,
I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud 'til the end of the day!
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,
And say with a groan, "She's so sweet when she's sleeping!"
God Bless All Moms and Grandmas everywhere!
