Morning, it's Monday...Jen issued a color challenge today from Design-Seeds blog...yummy hues, two shades of red and then warm almost cocoa browns. I thought my Kissing Booth would be the perfect stamp
to use for those woody tones. And to gussy up my delightful 'ladies of a certain decade' in those red tones.
The Kissing Booth stamp from long ago 1994 Museum of Modern Rubber was a recent find at Goodwill. How about that??? I thought perhaps I'd find a way to use it this Valentine season, I just didn't know the ladies (River City Rubber) had decided to host a 'FUN'raiser for youth programs. I think they should raise their prices...I mean this is the 'teens' you know! How about
$5 a kiss or three 4 $10?
I am hoping this meets the CAS guidelines...I did spend a long amount of time fussy cutting my heart banner for the booth and those adorable lil' cherubs in along the top...not evident from the angle I shot, but the inside has a doily heart directly behind my ladies!
Thanks so much for looking, I am on my way to visit with our very own tessaduck for lunching and playing in her marvelous studio. I am so excited...

Goodwill has stamps??? I'm going to have to check out mine. This is an unearthed treasure here, Susan. I love vintage stamps and your collection has always been one to envy. I know that is sinful, I'm just saying your taste in stamps is so wonderfully unique and make your art one of a kind. I just love it.

Oh my gosh, I'm thinking one or two of those ladies may have to pay the five cents to get a kiss. :-) That was bad, wasn't it? What a fun card and a great find at Goodwill. Have fun with with tessaduck. I'm sure you will.

Oh Susan, what a find! You have the most unique collection of stamps. But, I'm agreeing with Benzi, those ladies just might have to pay to get kissed!!! J/K! And all that fussy cutting was well worth it. What a great card.

This is so much fun! What a great find - so cool! By the looks of the ladies, 5 cents was probably good money then - bet you could buy a whole loaf of bread. How lucky to be going to Brenda's for some fun time together.
