For My Mama-EONAC challenge


Do you remember why you started stamping? I do...I started by joining a House Mouse yahoo group that was big on sending RAK's and I found so much happiness when I received one of those  squeaky critters in the mail.

I decided that I need to stop hoarding and start sending...I just mailed out a bunch of cards today...spread the joy!
Since my Mama has been ill, she has has had a hard time just perking up. I have decided I am going to be better about sending her a card (she only lives a few miles from me) just to cheer her up a wee bit. She's not necessarily one that hangs on to these creations, but hey, that's okay too....(anyone else would get in big trouble!)  Oh goodness ...there's my "hoardness" again...I have every RAK ever sent to me...crazy I know!

I made this card for Allison and Susie's challenge this week at EONAC #10...you need to use a sentiment stamp that has not seen the light of day in ages, or never seen ink.  No other stamps allowed!  I have had this Studio G $1 stamp for ages and thought it perfect for a card for my mama. I added this absolutely gorgeous DP and a little quick  nestie frame...I think this turned out kind of classy...or at least I think it is LOL!

This is an easy challenge...why not join in...You can enter until Friday and I think Susie is offering up a wee surprise too!

My challenge to you if you have read this far, go to your stash and pick a card and mail it tomorrow...brighten someone's day. If you need my address...just kidding...send a card to make someone happy!

Well, after you posted on my blog, I just had to come on over and see what you created with this stamp!

WoW, it was worth the trip ... this card is fab! I love how you inked the word 'lives' in a different color ... and that yummy DP, too. All this, and for only $1.00!
