Stamp What? A Proud American

Kelly (of the Three Musketeers, Ready Set Go, and Hot Mess Success) came up with a great idea for a series this year and asked Barb (of the same groups) and I to join her.

You know that stack of stamps you have that you have never used or haven't used in a LONG time and are sitting on a shelf, collecting dust?  It's time for us to take one down off the shelf and use it!  But which one?  The name *Stamp What?* comes from using only STAMPin' Up stamps for this challenge and never knowing WHAT it will be! Even we won't know which one it will be ~ it's chosen at random either by someone for us or by number generator.  (I used a number generator to determine which one to use). Since it's chosen at random, it will be a surprise, even to us!  

Stamp What?!!

I have 24 of the older (wood-mounted) SU sets left after last year's purge. I numbered them and then let a random number generator choose this month's stamp set - Liberty for All.

In these days when much of the United States is in a home sheltering mode and essential workers are doing all they can to help us through this pandemic situation, I love seeing the flag waving proud for the country I love. 

Be sure to head over to Kelly's blog and Barb's blog to see what stamp sets they used and to admire their creativity.

As always...
