Stamp What?! - Friendship warms the heart

 Hi friends!

Today's card is for my Stamp What?! card series where,

 once a month, my son chooses an "Old Dusties" wooden stamp set 

from the yonder years!  

You can read here how this all started

 and this is my second year, still going strong!

My friends Barb and Jeanette are joining me again this year

on this creative journey, although they are choose their own stamps 

each month while mine are always whatever I'm given by my son :)

February's stamp:  Friendship warms the Heart

 circa 1994

           Me:  This is awesome for February!  How did you chose this?

Him:  Because it has a heart ..........


TBH, I think this might actually be the 2nd time I've even used it!

I purchased this sweet rag doll set for a swap 100 years ago

and then it sats and sats!

Here is my card!

I chose a patterned paper as a background that kinda sorta

looked like a quilt.

I colored it with copic markers and added the buttons 

to mimic the ones on the rag doll and her heart.

How did I update this?

 The dies I used weren't around back then

and the patterend paper is from just a few years ago.

Barb and Jeanette have joined me this again this year

and you can see their cards on their blogs.

I often have people tell me they love the idea - thank you!

And I also encourage you to give it a try!

This series came about when mine sat neglected

and it was as simple as taking a leap, picking one

 (or have it picked for you as a surprise!) and go go GO! 

Thanks for stopping by!
