New Stamp


A friend of mine gave me some stamps to use today and I just had to come home and ink them up.... in real life this card looks old and primitive but because i have no idea how to use my camera other than point and shoot it doesn't do it justice here...but i love the card and have other thing floating in my head to make with them..... maybe I won't forget....
