Christmas meets Halloween = Versatility
Versatility, mixing & matching or just looking past the obvious uses of some of your stamps not only stretches the dollar but makes your stamp investments so much more valuable. Although I don't have to justify my stamp addiction purchases to DH, sometimes I have to justify them to MYSELF. Take another look at the card I created today. The orange strip of patterned paper was created using stamps from a Penny Black Crystalline Christmas Stamp set....I am trying real hard to NOT HOARD the Hero Arts pearls that I placed in the center of some of my images. Are they not FUN.
