I just love Precious Moments!

These images are just that..."PRECIOUS"! When I was a teenager I started collecting the actual figurines but then, as I got older I discovered that I am not really a knick-knack fan! I am just not a collector of things that just sit around my house and collect dust... Now, don't get me wrong, I do still think they are absolutely adorable but have discovered that they use to make Precious Moments rubber stamps! I sure do wish I could find a ton of them to add to my collection without having to pay the unbelievably outrageous price that they sell for on e-bay! Good grief!

Anyways, I have a couple of them and decided to make a Get Well Card with one of them...

I created the image with a 3-D effect. I popped up several different areas of the image and really like how it turned out! I wanted to use ribbon this card but really didn't have any that matched so I thought and thought about what other embellishments I could use on this card and came up with absolutely nothing. Suddenly, I noticed an empty tape runner on the side of my desk and realized that the rolled up spool, that use to contain the sticky stuff for a tape runner, was actually crystal clear and not sticky at all! So, I decided to cut a section off and see if I could turn it into ribbon. Guess what? It works and I love how it looks! You can even stamp on it with Staz-On!

Oh, so sweet! I love Precious Moments, too! I never knew that they made stamps! That would be awesome, but like you... ebay is too much! Glad that you have a few to play with, though! This card is just the sweetest! I love it! Great coloring and I just love that image!

How precious is this?!?! I love the soft colors, and your coloring is beautiful!

Like you, I love the Precious Moments stamps!!! Unfortunately, I started stamping too late and eBay is way too expensive for my shallow pockets! I have one stamp that I have yet to ink up, but I wish I had more.
