FEB09VSNK ~ Saturday, Feb. 21st ~ 3:00pm EST ~ "Long Lost Love" ~ Chat Thread
Title: Long Lost Love
Hostess: Natalie (dougnat)
Keyword: FEB09VSNK
Date: Sat, Feb. 21st
Time: 3:00pm EST

Before we start our challenge today , I want you to take a moment and think back to the day you saw that special stamp…maybe it was across a crowded stamp store. You knew right then you just HAD to have it…it was love at first sight. But after using this stamp time or two the excitement wore off and you tucked this stamp in a drawer never to see ink again. (I hope I’m not the only one who has done this!)

The card I made for this challenge features a stamp from D.O.T.S. or Dozen's of Terrific Stamps now known as Close to My Heart! yep, it's at least 10 years old and I just HAD to have this set and I think I've actually only used any part of it 3 or so times. The red checkered paper is also from D.O.T.S. and is a little newer than the stamp!!

My challenge for you is to find a LONG LOST stamp(s) give it a little squeeze, renew that friendship and then ink those babies up! Create something new, fresh and fun with your older stamps; renew that love that has been long lost.


DON'T FORGET TO ADD a post to your card HERE to get the special VSN coupon code for Jacksonbelle Embellishments!

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. All VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM on Sunday, February 22
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge is recommended to avoid typos.
It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE here.

I have quite a few DOTS stamps in boxes. I went to a party in November 1995 and the obsession began!

Thanks for the challenge.

I think I have quite a few D.O.T.S. stamps someone gave me when I first learned about stamping and they're not my thing.........in fact I tried to sell them and nobody wanted them either!! They're old though.

Sounds like a fun challenge but I only started stamping a year ago so I'm gonna sit this one out....maybe its time to run to the store for a diet coke. Anybody want me to pick you up anything while I'm out?
