Tiny Tree Thank You

I chose this stamp thinking it would be good for Christmas, but when I was making my Christmas cards I never ended up using it. Well, that being the case, I couldn't let it simply sit uninked, now could I? No-sirreee-bob! I had to get this pretty little thing INKY!

Thanks


And now I am SO glad I did! Just because it's little coniferous trees DOES NOT mean they have to be Christmas trees! I get stuck in ruts like that a lot, so I'm glad I broke out of this one to discover just how cute this stamp is on a thank you card! The image is the #138-N Little Fir Tree Border from 100 Proof Press. I stamped it and colored it with colored pencils. The sentiment sticker is from SRM and the burlap string is May Arts. All happy things!!! YAY!

thanks (detail)


So, I guess that's my own little challenge for all of you this week - go grab a holiday-specific stamp set and use it for non-holiday stuff! I think you will be delightfully surprised at the versatility a lot of stamps have!!! On that note, have a Happy Monday!

Jingle Out!

  9. There's nothing sadder than an uninked stamp, well except for an unused ink pad! LOL, love the stamp. It's really cute and you're right, it doesn't NEED to be just for Christmas at all!
