Know what I like best about this challenge, that I forget to stamp all too often and this kicks my butt into remembering. I have lots of heart stamps so I know that will work. But your list made me want to buy a doily stamp and an arrow stamp!!

Today is my 24th anniversary - I got this card finished w/20 min to spare of my DH coming home. I stamped the heart on the front w/ink, then stamped again w/Versamark & added clear/Prisma glitter to make it shine (tho it's hard to tell in the photo). The inside I stamped several sentiments

sun came out, but it's not that warm- there is a "special weather statement" that came out as a warning on my weather app - "light snow accumulation is possible Wednesday & Wednesday evening" - I like the snow- but I wish it would be more than a dusting at a time- everything looks frosted & then it's gone

Anna I have these clear boxes the size of a shoebox and I'm just putting my stamp sets in ziplock bags and marking them with a sharpie. These are just the ones that I got from my DT and my others are just in drawers and hanging on peg board. What started out as one little drawer for stamps expanded to 3 and then 3 slots on pegboard. But I managed to finally get all of my DT stamps organized yesterday and put into 4 boxes. One is for holidays, one is alphas and sentiments, one for nature, and the other one I labeled mixed media, but it's really just whatever was left with lots of vintage stuff too. Now I can create!

Good morning!

Thanks for the input Andrea. I bought a clear container to store my stamps in but I was way off on the size so I need to get another one. My plan of organization is similar to yours.

This is just for sharing. Practicing my stamping and coloring but need lots of improvement on my fussy cutting and outlining.

I love this stamp & it's one of the few decent cat stamps that CTMH has made- and the only active one right now. You can do so many things with it- I'm going to pull mine out & see what I'm inspired to do

Tena I hope you get your mojo back! I kinda feel like I'm getting mine back. I sure had fun this weekend playing with my new stamps!

can you believe only 4 days left of Feb? It's gone by so fast. We went to see Brad Paisley Saturday night- awesome. Also it was a beautiful weekend & DH got the deck done!!! YAY- construction is complete- now to clean up & level up all the disturbed dirt underneath and put down pavers so it isn't all muddy walking out from the basement. We were so excited that we had dinner on the deck at our new table- despite it was a bit cool (thank goodness he bought an outside heater). But I think the next meal will wait until it's a bit warmer.
