Stamp On It Hop

When I saw the Stamp on It Blog Hop on Sew We Quilt I knew I wanted to participate.  I love to receive mail.  I real hand written note or letter though rear is a great treat!  The little stamp in the corner can be an added bonus.  I really like the ones with flowers.  So I made my stamp with a scrappy flower.
I chose a 3 cent stamp because I remember buying them in college when the postage went up and I need them to add to the stamps I had already bought.  That and 3 is my favorite number.  I added ric rac to give it a perforated look from back in the day when they were sold in sheets that were perforated and you tore them off and had to lick them.  Yuck!  I hated the way they tasted.  So glad they are stickers now.  But I like the look so I made my stamp that way.

Now that you know my stamps story make sure you go visit the other bloggers and see what they came up with.

  13. What a cute little flower on your stamp! The quilting and ric rac add a good punch to the design too!

    I have a little sponge roller thing I picked up in an office supply store that you add water to the tube to dampen stamps and envelope adhesive. Yick, glue. Well, not on the stamps anymore, thank heavens, but the envelopes for sure! Love that thing come Christmas card time.

  18. Your stamp is quite cute. Though I don't remember stamps as low as 3 cents, I do remember licking them. I would use a wet sponge instead.

  25. this is such a Happy Stamp. It just makes me smile. If you would like a piece of "real" mail, just send me your address and I will happily send you something. I can remember waiting for the mailman every day. Actually there was a period of time when I would meet him half way down the street and walk his route back to my house and chat with him. haven't thought of that in years.
