I love a good stamp.
A good stamp can kickstart a whole project....I always say :)
A while ago I found a watch stamp somewhere, maybe at one of the big name craft stores, I can't really recall.
It took me a while to connect the watch stamp with the cuff making.
But eventually the two came together .
And then a while back I bought a bag full of stamps at a yard sale from a woman who was a "STAMPER".
(if you get the emphasis)
She had two tables lined with stamps she was cleaning out.
For some odd reason, amidst all the butterfly and flower stamps she had laid out there, I was drawn to a bag filled with these.........
They seemed to have so much potential.
But once I got them home- with stamp pad and paper laid out-
I was stumped. What were these images "saying??"
My two sons were at the table filling their pie-holes with troughs of cereal. And they started offering comments to each other about what was going on in the stamps. ....which I, of course, quickly jotted down, (thinking they were actually going to be helpful)......
This one (above), they joked, would be perfect for your hard-of-hearing grandma.
This one they whispered about....I caught something about mom and her friends sailing into the sunset together...what?
They thought this would make a great Valentine card, with the caption,
"Sweetie, I love you because you don't smell like sweat."
These above actually stumped them.
Well, just so you know, I won't be actually using any of those sayings.
But, it is tempting.
Until next post..........
