Stamp What? Cowboy Christmas

My friend Kelly (and her son) came up with a great idea for a card series last year and she invited Barb and me to join her in the adventure - called Stamp What?

The name *Stamp What?* comes from using only STAMPin' Up stamps for this challenge and never knowing WHAT it will be!

Recognizing that we all have stamp sets that are just collecting dust, this series nudges us into using some of them. Twelve of them, to be exact - one each month. We are to either have someone choose one for us or we are to randomly select one of our older Stampin' UP! stamp sets and create a card using it, that we then share on our blogs on the 10th of each month.

We had so much fun with this series last year (and still have lots of dusty stamp sets) so we're doing it again this year.

I numbered my wood-mounted (aka older) SU stamp sets and used a random number generator to choose the stamp set to use this month... Cowboy Christmas, circa 2000.

Truthfully, I purchased this stamp set used many MANY years ago and have been too intimidated to use it... so this series pushed me to get it done. I'm not happy with my card, but at least now I can say I've used this "I need it!" stamp set.

Here's the inside of my card:

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

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
