Blue Monday


The frugal me wins out....sometimes....I can't always find (even at the expensive rubber stamp counter) rubber stamps with the images that are in my head. So, to solve my problem, I started making my own. Just take a piece of lumber, a little bit of sticky back foam and voila, you're in business. Here's my little whale stamp. Yes, he's blue (now). He started out albino, but I quickly found the blue paint and stamped away on a fabric scrap to make sure he could swim!




I think this stamp will work just fine!!



Stop sometime today to smell the flowers..

And jump on over to say hello to Smiling Sally and see more Blue Monday thoughts, facts and fancys.

Hugs....

PS.........GOTTA CHECK OUT PURPLE GOAT LADY'S BLUE MONDAY GIVEAWAY. WHAT A FUN WAY TO CELEBRATE BLUE MONDAY!!
