Wish You Were Here!
Here is a stamp I challenged myself to use. (You'll hear that statement again and again.) It was a part of a full sheet I purchased years ago from Biblical Impressions. This was drawn by the same artist who drew the puppies ( >here is the post where I talked about it in case you want to follow the links<)
I didn't have a plan, but I was determined to use this image I'd colored. But for what? Why would I send someone a card with this image? I searched thru my stamps and came up with a couple of possiblities... wish you were here and a couple of missing you stamps. I guess if I was clever enough I could have computer generated something funny. But, I'm not that kind of clever and I was trying to use stamps I have. So obviously I settled on this one ( Hambo Stamps). So, there you have it. I successfully completed my own challenge and used a stamp I've had for 7 or more years. I'm not sure exactly when it was purchased, but I do remember which house I lived in and that I colored it right after I took a color pencil class in 2001 so I know it was sometime in 2001. I also remember using it once on the envelope when I sent another card to Biblical Impressions, but I've never actually had a card idea for it.
Now that it's done, who will I send this to? Will it stay in my card stash forever? Will it go to the first person to ask for it? Or will I send it to my daughter? Stay tuned for more nonsense like this...
This post is being edited to clear up some confusing statements. I wrote this before 8 am on a Saturday morning. Hmm after reading this again, I'm confused. I think the point I was trying to make was although I've never used it on a card, I do remember coloring it in 2001. I colored this particular one just the other day.
