Stamp What?! ~ Everything nice ...


Hi friends!

Happy weeekend!

Today's card is for the Stamp What?! card series

that was created by my teenage son :)

Here is how it all started and his creative idea 

is to breath new life into {much} older stamp sets that go unused!

This month, here is the stamp set he chose:

And Everything Nice w/Hollyhocks

circa 2005

As always, I like to 'rib him' a little bit and ask why he chose it :)

Me:  'INTERESTING choice!  Why did you pick this one?"

Him:  "It reminded me of Singing In The Rain."

Wow I haven't used this stamp set in a month of Sundays!

And ... I was a bit stumped so here it is.

Not my favorite card I've made but it. is. what. it. is!

How I modernized this older, wooden stamp set is

that I've used copics (didn't own those in 2005),

designer paper and dies that are current to the last few years.

And that's my card!

Barb and Jeanette are joining me this year on this card journey

and you can see there cards on their blogs, too.

Here's one final look:

Thanks for stopping by 

and have a wonderful weekend!
