love you to the moon plus purging lots of stamps

Hi Everyone!  I'm actually back to share another card. (I know, I can't believe it's so soon either! lol)  I think coloring images is one of the biggest things I've missed since I took my break from stamping and card making.  I've loved to color since I was a kid and have never outgrown it! :)


I saw this cute stamp set from Whimsy Stamps recently in an online store and had to get it to play with it.  It's called It's Play Time and has a few different cute little boy images in the set.  I used some patterned papers and a button from October Afternoon's Rocket Age line.  The sentiment is from the stamp set.  I added a little glossy accents to the window of the rocket to make it shiny which you can kind of see in the photo.  

I've also been purging stamps that I don't think I will use again or that I've never used.  I just have too many stamps and always need new ones so it's time for some to move on to new homes where they can be loved and used.  

You can find lots of stamps from lots of companies (including the set used on this card) here on my sales page.  (I also lowered the price on many stamps that were already listed.)  I want to try to be better about using stamps and then getting rid of them if they aren't ones that I really have to keep.  I created two cards with this set so I'll share the other card soon.  Just drop me an email if there's anything you're interested in and I can get you a shipping quote.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Niki :)

It does my heart good to see you are stamping again. The card is great. I hope you and the family are doing well. Can't wait to hear about the new addition to the family went it gets here. Take good care of yourself.
