Stamp What? Great Graduation

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 - Great Graduation, circa 2002.

Kelly, Barb, and I will be continuing this series next year, so stay tuned to my blog on the 10th of each month in 2021 to see what stamp set gets dusted off and used.

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!
