SOS #76 - Best Deal

Over at Shopping Our Stash they are looking for your Best Deal or Something I Had To Have. This was the case with this stamp.

The image is by Part Time Stamps and I found it at a yard sale that our LSS was having a many years ago.  It was only $.50 and I just Had To Have It, not only for the price but I thought the image was darling and I had someone specific in mind when I saw it.  I pull it out every so often, dust it off and make a card for a cat lover with it.  Sometimes I color this one in, sometimes not - today was a not day.  I used an sentiment from a Hero Art/Operation Write Home set.  If you read my last post you know I plan on using the stamps from that set often because I love them all.  The die is an A2 Polka Dot die by SB.   I just added four silver adhesive dots in the corners and I was done.  Thank you for coming by to say Hi.  Company is always welcome and appreciate.  Enjoy your day.

PS:   My neighbor is out there blowing his leaves around and now I feel guilty that I am not out there doing the same thing, (we have soooooo many leaves on the ground)  so I may have to go outside for a while.  Darn It - and my plan was to craft a big part of the day.  I found that it doesn't pay to plan - just go with the flow.        See you again soon.


  1. Beautiful card, Donna! Great design with a sweet image! It's sure to delight any cat lover!

  2. This is such a cute kitty image, and I can understand why you had to have it! I love those silver accents in the corners too, and I've gotta tell you - the larger photo of your card works really well! Nice work!

  3. That was a great stamp find! I sure would have snagged it also. I made the photo larger on Carol's advice, and it's adorable! Hope you enjoyed "MY" sunshine, LOL! We ended up with just a few spurts. As for the leaves, they would not have run away if you kept crafting. Have a glorious Sunday!

  4. Hi Donna! I can really understanding having to have that cute image - and then to get it for 50 cents just topped it off! Love the way you did the framing too - and of course that bit of bling!
    Glad you're playing along with Shopping Our Stash too.

    Hope you had fun with all the leaves! LOL! We don't have any falling yet - but then it's really been too hot for any to fall yet. Maybe we'll get fall around here soon.

    Hope you had a good weekend. I'll get caught up on everything on your blog as soon as I can. Have been out of town a few days.

    Oh, like the bigger image on here too! Very nice!


  5. Donna - This is a very sweet card! That image is a great one. You could use it for many different occasions. I love the die you used. Looks great. Thanks for playing along at SOS.
