Time for Chantigo

Do you have stamps that you to buy only to find them on the bottom of the bin, uninked? Here's two of mine.

I have to say that I did find the tire swing stamp a little challenging. Its not that easy to color a tire. I guess that's why I ended up stamping it on a blackish/grayish marble scrap of paper instead. I picked up the paper at a local rummage sale. It was one of those mystery grab bags. One that was disappointing to open at the time. Of course I hung onto its contents with the well you never know philosopy. I suppose if you wait long enough you'll find a use for it. I covered the thank u sentiment in the flowers center with a button.
