Stamp What? Spring Bouquet

Kelly, Barb, and I have been doing a monthly challenge this year. It's an idea that Kelly came up with (with some help from her son) and invited Barb and I to join her in. 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 had 24 of the older (wood-mounted) SU stamp sets at the beginning of the year (I've since purged some more of them) so I numbered them and then let a random number generator choose this month's stamp set - Spring Bouquet, circa 2000. I actually purchased this stamp set second-hand a few years ago and don't remember if/when I have used it. BUT I can say... I do like the gorgeous main image and plan to keep this stamp set. 

I hope I didn't cheat - if I did I am sorry, Kelly. The sentiment is not from the stamp set. Instead it is from a bin I have of sentiments. This one is from Taylored Expressions.

Be sure to head over to Kelly's blog and Barb's blog to see what stamp they've used this month - and of course to admire their creativity.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Loving the blue DP with white polka dots. Your image is very cute and old. I still have my very first SU stamp set which is close to 20 years old. Have a great week!
