Make it Simple Monday: Use your Retired Stamps

Ha! On a Tuesday, right! Sorry guys this was supposed to be posted yesterday. :)
October is Pastor's Appreciation Day


I was asked to create a card for my loving pastors.


Everyone who knows my Pastor Dan Langan -from Harvest House Christian Fellowship- knows his usual response when asked How are you? How is your day going? He will undoubtedly say, "Best Day Ever".

So I TOTALLY had to pull one of my retired Sale-a-bration stamps: Best Day Ever.
I mixed this wonderful stamp set with the new Paisleys & Posies Photopolymer Bundle and get to work making a kind of manly card.

What do you think?
I took a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock, scored in half and folded.
This card is way bigger than any others. 

I felt awesome making it and honoring our church leaders too!
They deserve it. Pastors work so hard and rarely people notice them.

My picture taking is not marvelous but I am happy 
to share this idea with you!

Do NOT be afraid of using old stamps or retired stamps.
ENJOY what you have and be OPEN to the possibilities.
That's my tip for you today Make it Simple Monday!

I made a simple envelope with my simply scored board. 
It worked nice!



I had the Night of Navy Cardstock out, o rich and wonderful.
I decided to make a couple of more cards with my Paisleys and Posies!
Definitely a favorite in my stamp closet!






Have a fabulous week!
