Quirky stamps, bargain sales and some good luck!

Hi friends!

I hope you're doing awesome!
My son's middle school theater troope has a show this week
and they have been working very hard behind the scenes
with props and memorizing lines and costumes!
I'm so excited for all of them and can't wait to see the show :)

 Of course, I had to make a card for my sweet boy!
He's so sweet and often walks by the table and says 
"Oh, that's neat!"
I wanted to make a 'break a leg' card for him
but didn't realize how few of these sentiments that I have.
And then I remembered ....
those bargain stamps!
I was very fortunate to have spotted a trio of brand new
   Waffle Flower stamps on eBay last summer.
They were a quirky lot of stamps ~ a real mix and match 
of mermaids and critters and Christmas and some Good Luck!
The seller mentioning buying a HUGE bulk lot 
and sorted the ones she didn't want.
I thought they were adorable and gave them a new home ♥

This stamp was perfect for me and creating a special card ~
I feel as if it was meant for me ♥


 It was so much fun creating with the paint paneling (previously painted)
and I stamped right onto the paint with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I added foam tape to the back to give it some dimension
and then added carnival dew drops (ret'd) from Honey Bee Stamps.

The show is tomorrow night and Thursday night ~
this mom is nervous but excited to see the performances!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
