Tolerance

There is a used stamp and scrap sale next week where people can buy and sell their unwanted, unused or gently used stamp and scrap supplies.  It is a great way to get rid of some stuff and to acquire "new" stuff.  Trust me, unless you are getting out of the biz, it works both ways.
I plan to have a table there as a seller, so I've been pawing through my stash lately to pull out the things I can part with (to make room for new things, of course).  Along the way I found this stamp tucked into an odd corner and this card base left over from a kit I got tired of playing with.  I combined the two and got this cute card.  I added button and tied some twine through it and called it done.  How 'bout that?!

The Fine Print: Unmounted stamp called "Tolerance" by Mo Manning, distributed by Stamping Bella. Papers left over from a Simon Says card kit (the one I kept calling Serenade, which may or may not have been its real name).  And how can I bare to part with stuff you ask?  Well, I like to be able to open the drawers my stash is in and see what's inside without having an avalanche or having to dig through a big mess for 45 minutes. And no, I'm not getting rid of Tolerance.  I'm not sending it to you  Sorry!

Tis ok hun, I have this stamp already, so I won't be raiding your stash. I love what you have done with him, so sweet. I quite like the avalanche and rummage principle, I rediscover so many forgotten things in the rock fall. Hugs xx
