The TLC challenge today was to make your own stamp. I decided to carve mine, something I had tried before and thought was fun. Since we are once again in the grasp of that Polar Vortex (-16 this morning, even colder tomorrow), I had time to carve three! I volunteer on Mondays but since the schools are all closed I didn't have to go. I usually don't do CAS cards but with the nature of the stamps I thought that was the way to go...I did rate the difficulty of this a 3 because of the carving of the stamps ;) Anyway, thanks for looking!

I had a couple of blocks that I had carved somewhere (before I moved) but of course can't find them now. So I'll have to come up with something else. I like your leaves and seed pods or flowers. They look like seed pods to me so that is what I'm calling them. Great job and great use of the colors and the sketch.

Polly, you are so clever to carve your own stamps and you have created a wonderful CAS card with them!! I guess you're getting a lot of time to make cards at the moment with your cold Winter - I do hope your weather improves!!
