Thanks ravengirl (Toni) for encouraging us to Forget the Mower with todays Ways to Use It. But I've got a lawnmower stamp with a lawnmower MAN! I must use it!
Here's why: have you ever heard the saying, cost per use? I used that years ago to justify a pair of high heels I just 'HAD' to have. Let's say, if I were to wear them 100 times, it would only cost me 'x'. Well, not only did they ruin my feet like some kind of medieval instrument of torture, but I totally did not get my monies worth. Stamps will never hurt you. And my Gumbo Graphics lawnmower/man was found at a garage sale years ago...just waiting...and today's the day.
The Rubber Moon Mid Century Modern house sits on top of a hill in a new housing development. The grass is freshly planted. And it definitely needs mowing.
I used Copics to color the house. Glossy Acents for the windows. The Basic Grey Cloud dp was embossed with the Darice 'Cloud' folder. I paper pieced with scraps of Basic Grey greens, some had already also been run through an ef. Fussy cut the Basic Grey French Script like little fresh blades of grass. I also used green vellum and Washi tape.
The fun sentiment ' I think I shall never see a rubber stamp that I don't need' was fussy cut and placed on trees and the lawn.
Thanks for the very fun prompt, Toni! I had such fun finally using that .25 stamp. Thank you for stopping by for a look today...gotta mow and keep up the neighborhood!

Brilliant!! I can't believe you had a man with a lawnmower stamp..oh wait, yes I can! And what a bargain! How could you resist! This is awesome...that house kind of looks like a FL Wright design...cool. The saying is hilarious! Thanks for making me think of grass on this blizzardy, snowy day (yes...we're getting hit again....went from brown lawn to all white in a day...it'll melt...but until then I can dream of...lawnmower man)....

A cute card. I agree rubber stamps don't hurt, but sometimes shoes do. LOL This was the perfect time to use your stamp in waiting. Nice lawn with a fancy mowing pattern. We can never "not need" another rubber stamp. Thanks, for sharing your humor.

So far 54 views and numerous comments....you have entertained with your 25cent stamp and artistic ability. I'd say that was getting your money's worth.You do realize we stampers have two hobbies...buying and creating. Thanks for sharing your fun story. The card does look like FW design. Love it , Susan.
