Fence Post

A Stamper friend was giving away some old stamps and she asked me if I wanted this Spring Fence stamp from Great Impressions, I thought it was cute so I said yes.  I have added the fence rails behind it the original was just the individual planks.  This was colored with Markers.


Behind the fence I used a Martha stewart corner and edge punch. Scraps of papers for the background.
I can't remember who the maker of the sentiment stamp is if you are curious let me know and I will look it up.  The gems are from Queen and co.

Well the evening that my niece arrived we had some big down pours and had flooding again, out front it came within 3 feet of coming into our garage and out back it was 2 feet from our deck.  Our shed had a foot of water in it, that is how high the water mark was, we had to go in take everything out and wash the mud out of the shed, our grass has a grey tint to it from all the mud, we have lived in this house for 6 years now and this is the worse we have seen and hopefully won't see anything like it again.

Hope you all are staying safe and cool,
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie

Cute! I love it! I have some Great Impressions stamps similar to this and they're some of my old favorites. They don't look old. I still love them. Might have to bring them out sometime soon. Thanks for the inspiration, Connie! Sorry about that yucky weather situation. Hope you don't have a repeat anytime soon!
