Silly Hat

Happy New Year!!

This is my first post for the year and I've got just a little something silly to share. My darling middle daughter has a friend boy to whom she wished to give a gift. While we were down in NC over the holidays, my step-dad, Jerry, gave us all baseball hats from one of the properties where he does the landscaping. Hannah decided that her friend would like one of the hats, but that it needed a little bit something added. Turtles, to be specific.

And what does an intrepid crafter do when posed with such a request from one of her children? She stamps!

Now, I've never stamped on a non-flat surface, so it's not gorgeous, but I think it'll be okay for a 13 year old boy. The cool thing is that I got to use stamps and ink pads that hadn't been used before. Gotta love that!! Now I have my entry for this week's Stamp Something challenge and, since the hat is new, it works for GCA#72 at Ann's Creative Nook.
Stamps - Unity you + me = happy
Ink - Stazon Teal Blue & Forest Green
Copics - BG09 & G29

We had a fabulous vacation, but I'm awfully glad to be back! I wish everyone a healthy, happy 2010.
