I was inspired by a tulip stamp I saw last week – that I don’t have, I don’t have the craft funds to purchase (and, really, I would use it for March & April, then it would sit the rest of the year).
So I pulled out my old, wood mount tulip stamps. Made 16 cards, and have 2 more images (a newer, mixed bouquet stamp) colored but not made into cards yet. Always good to pull out the old stuff to see if it still works – of course it does! (why else would I have kept it in my basement this long – the old favorites ALWAYS work!)
The thank you set (of 8) is for my mother-in-law.

One of my friends texted me two weeks ago and told me they needed to restock their card stash. Great! Except that I have not kept my basket well stocked since the pandemic started. I made a big push over the past two weekends, and I have added over 40 cards.
