Stamp What? A Happy Bear

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 stamp sets left after last year's purge. I numbered them and then let a random number generator choose this month's stamp set - Happy Bear, circa 1992. Happy Bear is truly one stamp, nothing more. The sentiment on my card is not even SU.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get very good pictures - they are so washed out.

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...

24 sets left, eh? I have 8 wood ones that I love up for sale to make room. This is an adorable bear. Lovely card.
