I found this little sentiment stamp today at "that shop" and decided it was a pretty good thought. The picture is of me taken in 1942 in my grandpa's back yard. The clockface I got off my Greeting Card Factory software. I wanted to keep it plain and simple, with a vintage look. Hope I succeeded. Thanks for looking. Any feedback will be appreciated.
edit note: I got my idea for this from Artystamper's gallery. Although I don't think I CASED hers, there is a similarity. Thanks for the inspiration.
