Thoughts and Prayers Birthday

Good morning! Hope you had a nice weekend! I got a lot of stamping done, but hardly anything actually completed. I'm so bad about starting a card and setting it aside to start another one. I finally got a box to put unfinished cards in so I don't forget about them. There's also a bunch of images in there I've colored that I haven't done anything with yet. razz BTW, no signs of the nasty little centipede since it so rudely visited me Thursday. Whew! I hope to never see that hideous thing again. Hopefully all those nasy little legs carried his ugly self back outside where he belongs. Anyway, I thought I'd use my Thoughts and Prayers set. I really love these stamps, but they aren't getting much use since I can't color them wink. I need to stop discriminating against my solid image stamps, lol. I used one of the stamps from So Many Sayings with my SAMJ to make the stripes (my set is cut apart and mounted on jenga blocks).

Hope you have a great day!!

THis is so beautifuil Emily!! Hey - I'll take some of your unfinished images if you're needing a home for them ;)- Just kidding - but great idea to put in a box though. This stamp set really is truly versatile though!

Love the colors on this! And, yes, you need to stop being a stamp snob because your work with "uncolorable" stamps is wonderful!!
